Our Daily Food OfferingA full gourmet breakfast is served every day from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (with prior arrangements breakfast can be served earlier for those eager to hit the trails early).Your breakfast starts with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. As we use the cold press system to extract the juice all the essential nourishment, vitamins and anti-oxidants are there to energize your body for the day ahead.The orange juice is followed by our homemade granola parfait or overnight cooked oatmeal. We bake our own rolled oats and almond granola add chopped dried apricots and ginger before serving it with yogurt and seasonal berries. The parfait is topped with some brown sugar that is caramelized. The oatmeal is slow cooked overnight with apples, raisins, can raisins, almond milk, cream and maple syrup and served with fresh fruit and cream.A bread basket, contents rotating on a daily basis, will contain either: the daily baked sourdough whole wheat bread (Unique to the Alpenhorn as it is a self-developed recipe based on Johann's mother’s healthy whole wheat bread that contains soy flour, wheat germ and Pro-Nutro cereal and Claus Meyer’s Nordic sourdough bread baking method.); scones with fresh fruit; muffins with berries and a fruit glaze or Evelyn's famous pumpkin bread. The flour for all the baked goods including Evelyn's chocolate chip cookies come from ancient grains that have not been modified genetically or otherwise and as such contains the gluten that our body can easily metabolize. We get the flour from a boutique miller in Pasadena – Grist & Toll. We also add some freshly baked scones that contains seasonal fruit.The endless cups of coffee comes from Big Bear Coffee Roasters who purchase the green beans and roast it locally to perfection. We have selected their roasted Ethiopian coffee as our house blend. The Ethiopian Yirgacheffee coffee bean, is the most favored coffee grown in southern Ethiopia. It is more mild, fruitlike, and aromatic. Your coffee is brewed in the highly regarded Dutch coffee brewing system Technivorm Moccamaster K741.While you start with the above, your hot breakfast is being made and would include some of the following:
