Farmers Guest House has been named “Best B&B Breakfast in North America” and with your first bite, you will agree.

Breakfast is served in our spacious dining room with multiple seating options and over a one-hour time span to allow you the comfort of sleeping in.  All of our breakfasts begin with fresh fruit and bakery made each morning by Susan, which may include home-made muffins, coffee cake, eclairs, danish, breads or scones. Susan is celebrated for her breakfasts and was most recently seen as a winning contestant on Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship. Every day is a different day at our bed and breakfast in Galena, but guests are never disappointed. Susan’s specialties range from oven-baked frittatas to blueberry French toast, fiesta oven omelet, bacon & egg cups, waffles, or oatmeal pumpkin pancakes, and the best local bacon, ham or sausage. Breakfast is accompanied by your choice of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, and fresh juice at our fruit and Mimosa bar.

Seasonal baked goods always accompany your entrée and include such mouth-watering delicacies as pumpkin muffins, bacon-cornbread muffins, or Strawberry Coffee Cake. Farmers Guest House also accommodates food allergies and restrictions upon request. We serve Gluten Free home made items for guests who request a Gluten Free diet and can accommodate most dietary requests with a day’s notice.

Susan even is known for the best pizza in Galena. Yes, the best breakfast pizza loaded with bacon, sautéed vegetables, fluffy eggs and 3 cheeses. Breakfast at Farmers Guest House is a great kick-off to your Galena getaway.

Susan’s breakfasts are so good that she’s often asked where she learned her incredible culinary skills. The answer is always the same; “Don and I have raised 9 children and I am the proud graduate of the renowned Institute of Shut Up and Eat You Breakfast.”  There is no culinary institute that can train you better than that.

Breakfast begins with a fruit bar that is fresh, hand cut and prepared each morning. Along with the fresh fruit is an array of fruit juices and champagne to make your custom blended Mimosa – after all, you are on vacation!

At Farmers Guest House we aim to provide you with locally produced fruits, produce, and meats whenever possible. Your breakfast is prepared fresh each morning using eggs from an area farm, cheese from a Wisconsin dairy, and fresh produce & meats from local Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin farms. Everything is created especially for you in our kitchen each day.  Substitutions and dietary accommodations are easily made with advance notice.
