Bed & Breakfasts throughout the world are often known for their intimate accommodations and attention to detail. When it comes to meal preparation, Hart House Bed & Breakfast in Michigan’s Oceana County dishes out a delectable breakfast treat customized for each of its guests.
Hart House Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers Patrice and Al Martin take great pride in preparing and serving memorable morning meals for their guests. Patrice, who is the primary chef, grew up in an ethnically-diverse neighborhood in Chicago, surrounded by a myriad of cuisine styles. She jokes about not being able to scramble an egg when she moved away from home. But, with her appreciation for food and wholesome ingredients, Patrice decided to learn the art of cooking.
Breakfasts at Hart House Bed & Breakfast include the guest’s choice of one of two entrees, accompanied by fresh fruit, baked goods, coffee, tea or juice. Patrice also sprinkles in locally-sourced foods and seasonings in the gourmet cuisines whenever possible.
“Oceana County is abundant with fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables,” said Patrice. “Many local vendors provide a rich array of high-quality dairy products, meats, condiments, sweet treats and other goodies. We want to support the local farmers and artisans who are right in Hart’s and neighboring communities’ backyard.”
