"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Visiting the Benbow in for breakfast was always a special occasions, and was usually a place I'd go with my Mom & Dad and Gram & Granddad.

It was the first place I ordered Eggs Benedict in a restaurant. one of my favorite breakfast foods! When visiting the Inn we were always greeted by their very large white dog "Lady", and they always had a puzzle waiting in the lobby that I would work on while waiting for our table or food to be ready.
