Coffee or tea is fresh 24 hours a day at Dove Nest Bed and Breakfast in the beach town of St. Joseph, which boasts beautiful sandy beaches and unforgettable Lake Michigan sunsets! Our guests are greeted with light refreshments upon arrival and the complimentary drinks are available all day. Whether you plan on relaxing on a white sandy Lake Michigan beach, touring the nearby wineries or discovering our region, you need a hearty breakfast to start your day. Our breakfast is plated and served using china and crystal. Candlelight and the background music add to the breakfast experience. Guest may choose private seating or meet with other guests around the dining table to share their experiences from visiting wineries, restaurants, state parks or other tips. During the summer months we serve breakfast on the rear patio. Our guests love to eat outside while enjoying views of domesticated doves in artistic displays and listening to birds chirping or doves cooing. Our three-course breakfast begins with juice and coffee or tea, fresh fruit based dish (yogurt/granola parfait, fruit with freshly baked bread, croissant or muffin). The main entrée is an egg dish with vegetables and meat. The 3rd course is a sweet dish such as crepes, Swedish pancakes, Czech palacinky, waffles, baked apples etc. topped with fruit sauces, ice cream, shaved chocolate and/or whipped cream. Of course, we accommodate special diets. Our menu rotates to ensure that guests enjoy a different breakfast each day
