Breakfast is included with your overnight reservation and is complimentary. Lacto-ovo vegetarian are always served, vegan, gluten free and other special diets can be arranged with 24 hour advance notice. We apolgize but we cannot always accommodate last minute or short notice requests. However, you are welcome to bring your own items to supplement your dietary restrictions and store them in our wine cooler in the living room/parlor. Also, please note: we strive daily to serve fresh, delicious breakfasts for our guests. However, we are not a restaurant. There are ample eateries in South Pasadena and Pasadena if you are a "Foodie".
With the exception of major holidays we offer a 9am seating of a hot dish (ovo-lacto vegetarian)(eggs and dairy but no meat) breakfast in the dining room where Albert Einstein was once feted by Anna Bissell McKay.
So we can accommodate an earlier time frame for our business travelers as well our guests who are early risers, a self service expanded continental is offered prior to 9am, by advance RSVP, as long as you notify us when you check in.
Self service "grab n' go" anytime prior generally consists of freshly brewed coffee and/or hot tea, orange juice, cold and/or instant hot cereal, toast, yogurt, fresh whole fruit and hard boiled eggs. Either way, you won't leave hungry. Pease note: Our continental breakfast is not a buffet spread like what you would experience in some countries. Also, it is a cold as opposed to hot breakfast.
