Dining at The Franciscan Guest House

Full & Continental Breakfast Buffets

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.

Dinner Buffet

During most of the peak season in the summer (July & August), we're happy to provide a buffet dinner usually Friday and Saturday nights with additional weeknights. Please inquire for details.

Our cooks make both American and Lithuanian dishes. Our American meals are basic but very 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 American dishes that are served sometimes include lightly seasoned baked haddock, Italian baked chicken, and Yankee Potroast.

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 pudding somewhat similar to mashed potatoes.

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.

Visitors to the area are welcome to join us for dinner. Please feel free to call to inquire as to our dinner menu and to make reservations by 3 pm that day during peak season only. Please call for meal times. Please note menus may not match the above descriptions exactly and may change without notice.
