Breakfast in the Library
Freshly laid, Free Range, Eggs
Breakfast at Maison de la Mer captures the imagination. An elegant dining room overlooks the expansive harbour, with crisp linen tablecloths, fine china settings that change daily, fresh flowers, and soft soothing music. The food focus is on fresh local ingredients. This is the way to start your day!
The aromas of fresh coffee and hot freshly baked croissants fill the air, and the scene is set. We start with fresh juices, fresh seasonal fruits - which includes locally grown organic berries, our renowned homemade Muesli, and homemade Greek style yoghurt. Next, we offer an individually prepared choice from our cooked menu, freshly ground coffee, and a selection of teas. Meanwhile on the harbour, the day unfolds and you are enveloped in the peace, tranquility and beauty of it all.
To deliver the very best to our guests, we concentrate on fresh, local ingredients, sourced from suppliers who we know are committed to quality and freshness. We use specially dry cured old-fashioned smoked bacon, local, freshly laid, free range organic eggs, locally smoked salmon from Akaroa harbour and herbs and vegetables grown in our kitchen garden. Our local berry farm supplies us daily (in season) with just picked raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and boysenberries. We have a broad selection of herbal, and black teas, and premium freshly ground coffee. We make our own Muesli, and Yoghurt and serve it with fresh seasonal fruits and a menu of cooked dishes for you to choose from.
