Romantic Valentines Breakfast at 10 Fitch - February 14, 2013

This morning breakfast was served with a heaping helping of romance!  Of course our guests always dine by candlelight and this time of year the fireplace adds to the warm and cozy atmosphere, but in February we are over the top with additional romantic touches.  Everything from the table settings, to the decorations and the delicious breakfasts that we take so much care in preparing so that our guests know how much we LOVE them!

Goodie bag contains chocolate soap and bath soap to enjoy at home after indulging in them during your stay.
 This was our menu this morning but each morning during February we are serving up the romance!
 Our Sweetheart Eggs before poaching...
 and this is what they looked like after they were cooked and resting on their tasty "beds"!
First course, rosy poached pears with chocolate raspberry sauce.  Yum.

Come to our romantic Finger Lakes Bed & Breakfast here in Auburn New York and escape to romance any month of the year!
