Welcome to the third Edible Eat of the Week! A recurring series, Edible Eat of the Week celebrates the bounty of Long Island by showcasing special, seasonal eats and the people who make them.
The Eat: A three-course breakfast.
The Place: East Hampton’s Mill House Inn.
The Story: The best breakfast in town just got a little bit better. On June 29, East Hampton’s esteemed Mill House Inn launched the MHI Breakfast Experience, a three-course “tour through what the farmers dropped at our back door.” The menus change regularly, but will feature appetizers, entrees, and desserts. At breakfast. Yes, you read that right.
Here’s an idea of what you can expect. One week, appetizers featured overnight oats from Gianforte farms or a fresh fruit board with Greek-style yogurt and CBD granola. For main courses, guests could choose between scrambled eggs with Quail Hill Farms vegetables, a squash blossom frittata with Open Minded Organics mushrooms, breakfast tacos with Mecox Sigit cheese, and a southern brisket hash with J Silhan’s Happy Valley brisket. For dessert? Amber Waves wheat pancakes, or Blue Duck brioche French toast.
Another week, entrees included a breakfast sandwich with pork sausage, an omelet with brisket and green chiles, and chocolate-chip pancakes. The menu is coded to accommodate dietary restriction: v (vegan), w30 (whole 30), p (paleo), gf (gluten-free), and df (dairy-free). Farms are listed at the bottom of the page. Coffee, ever the pet project of J Silhan, has its own dedicated page. Spend an afternoon with him and you’ll be singing the praises of coffee-without-milk (apologies, though, J, because I still take mine with).
If you’re perseverating over the fact that you can’t get to this best breakfast in the Hamptons, because the Mill House Inn only offers breakfast to its guests, more on that, too. The Mill House Inn will be selling tables for charity. You can read more about that in our previous coverage. For now, let your mouth water with the mere idea of a fully sanctioned three-course breakfast. Everything good begins with breakfast!
