Intimate Farm-to-Table Dining in Gatlinburg, TN

 

Breakfast at Creekwalk Inn at Whisperwood Farm

Coffee and tea available anytime

Wake up to our breakfast celebration with a farm-to-table feast. On cool mornings, don a comfortable sweater for breakfast by the creek with birds and brook singing. For early risers, the electric teapot is ready to turn on for your French press coffee. Pick out a teapot to brew herbal or English breakfast blend. We let you be self-serve on beverages and select your preferred time and table for breakfast. You have already let us know what you prefer not to eat, so we will be creative with all the other options available.

Sample Menu:

  • Grilled glazed grapefruit half with broiled cranberries
  • Orange apple smoothie
  • Oatmeal sweetened with dates and maple syrup
  • Brandied peach French toast
  • Thick-sliced apple-cured bacon
  • Custom roast coffee or our private label organic tea blends Forestberry or Creekwalk Blooms

We offer vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian meals upon request. Please let us know your preference when you make your reservation.

We have served such spontaneous cuisine entrees as:

  • Confetti of Pansy omelets with free-range eggs
  • Asparagus and Portobello quiche glazed with goat cheese and fresh herbs
  • Baked brie stuffed with raspberries and pistachios
  • Organic blue corn pancakes made with almond milk and crunchy pecans
  • Buckwheat and Irish oatmeal muffins topped with peaches and pomegranates

Our most famous entree is our own recipe for sausage roll, a pastry delight stuffed with local sausage, cream cheese, and apple or sweet potato butter and baked with cinnamon, ginger and cloves.

Our fresh garden vegetables in summer often grace the breakfast table,fried green tomatoes, colorful peppers…

Our chef Janice has studied at the Santa Fe School of Cooking in New Mexico, so a southwest flair may surprise you, but the food always reflects a gathering of local produce, much from our local orchard and vegetable barn, Carver’s Orchard, just 2 miles down the road, if not from the garden. Fresh organic herbs are always available in the window boxes for garnishing.

Don’t be surprised if you experience an original dish created just for you,mixed in with the favorites such as steaming hot strawberry crepes or Janice’s family sweet roll recipe full of cinnamon swirls.

Summer breakfasts are usually served outdoors on the porches. A private table may always be requested. Interning chefs bring new ideas to the inn and continue the delight in combining the best of nature’s playground in the kitchen and on the trails.

Original recipes always available by request. No secrets, just a fun, learning, sharing kitchen.
