Fairbanks House Breakfast

Enjoy a Tasty Breakfast on Amelia Island at Fairbanks House

The scent of cinnamon orange pecan French toast with a caramel topping making its way through the mansion will entice you out of our comfy beds each morning.

Or maybe it’s the Florentine quiche, chicken and apple sausage and banana spice bread that does it. It’s possible that you just appreciate a great hot beverage to get your day started, so it’ll be the dark roast coffee and the selection of eight kinds of tea that draw you to a breakfast to write home about.

Join us for breakfast
  • Coffee ready in the dining room starting 7:30am
  • 2-course breakfast served every morning 8:00am – 9:30am


A two-course breakfast is served each morning in our beautiful formal dining room and outside on our side porch patio. For those who like the traditional bed and breakfast experience of dining with other guests, join us in the formal dining room. And for those looking for a quieter start to the day, join us on our side porch and courtyard patio, where you’ll find tables for two overlooking the pool, gardens, and jasmine arbor. You’ll be served at your table, anytime between 8:00a and 9:30a. No pre-set reservations or notifications are required. If these times don’t suit you, please ask about alternate arrangements.

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

For early risers, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are ready in the dining room at 7:30am each morning so that you can grab a cup of coffee and listen to music in the living room while you wait for your partner, or take a cup back to your room. If you’re earlier than that, you’ll find a stocked coffee maker in your room so that you can have that first cup in your jammies before you greet the world. Regular and decaf are available, along with four kinds of sweeteners, as well as hazelnut and cinnamon flavorings, if desired.
