The carriage house offers its guests a very good menu for breakfast. They use real maple syrup, local sourced food, and cook from scratch. The french toast needed more egg and vanilla, the sausage links were too tiny, and the home fries were basically potatoes...More

High prices, uninspired food, and indifferent service. Every time I'm at the Carriage House, I come away thinking "I'm just NOT their target demographic." But perhaps you are! If you like french toast that is so thick that it looks like a doorstop, chuffed with...More

I went during the summer and it was not too busy. Portions were generous. Lots of great choices on the menu. Service was prompt.
