Dining at the Franciscan Guest House
In the tradition of the Lithuanian Franciscans, we invite you to enjoy our hotel buffets and leave with a full stomach! We offer the breakfast buffet except for Thanksgiving and Easter Holiday weekends. Dinner buffets are often available during peak season and often include Lithuanian specialties.
Visitors to the area are also welcome to join us for breakfast and dinner. Please feel free to inquire about our dinner menu and to make reservations by 3 pm the day you wish to come during peak season only. Please call for meal times and buffet price.
We provide a continental breakfast for every guest at no extra charge. The continental breakfast is included with your room. For the full breakfast buffet, we ask for a small fee per person over 10 years old per meal. Payment is by honor system and goes into the black boxes in the dining room. We kindly ask for your support so we can continue to provide the full breakfast at this affordable price.
For the continental breakfast, you will always find a good choice of food. There are about 5 different cereals, a variety of breads including bagels, and sliced breads for toast. We also put out boiled eggs, fruit, luncheon meats and cheese. Along with the familiar American fare, there are also some Lithuanian choices including homemade Lithuanian breads (Bulka), and other specialty breads.
For the full breakfast buffet, we put out delicious hot eggs and oatmeal with syrup, cinnamon or brown sugar. During the peak season, we also have pancakes (Blynai) or French toast. During some weeks, homemade Lithuanian farmers cheese (Ukininku Suris) is also available.
To drink, we provide orange juice, ice water, coffee, tea, milk, and hot chocolate all included with your stay.
During the peak of summer, a buffet dinner will sometimes be offered to guests. Please inquire for details.
Our cooks make both American and Lithuanian dishes. Our American meals are basic but filling. In peak season, the homemade Lithuanian meals are made by our Lithuanian cooks.
A typical dinner buffet will include a garden salad, at least one soup, bread, at least one main entree, rice, pasta or a potato dish, one or two cooked vegetables and a light dessert.
Some of the Lithuanian dishes served sometimes include Cold Beet Soup (Saltibarsciai), Hot Beet Soup (Karsto Runkeliu Sriuba), the national dish of Lithuania (Kugelis) which is a savory potato casserole somewhat similar to mashed potatoes.
Some American dishes that are served sometimes include lightly seasoned baked haddock, baked chicken, and pot roast.
For beverages, we provide iced tea, lemonade, water, coffee, tea, milk. A soda machine is available, or you may bring your own beverages to breakfast or dinner.
