Eggs Frontenac (poached eggs on an English muffin with smoked salmon, asparagus and hollandaise sauce).

Take for example, the charming Frontenac Club Inn (located in the heart of downtown), where a complimentary three-course, full-service breakfast comes standard with overnight stays and features crowd-pleasers like their Eggs Frontenac (a delicious spin on Eggs Benedict that includes smoked salmon and steamed asparagus). Your stay at this elegant limestone inn not only includes breakfast but also a window to the rich history and vibrancy of Canada’s first capital.

Over at The Secret Garden Inn (centrally located in historic Sydenham Ward), guests can enjoy a gourmet breakfast served in their stunning oak-panelled dining room. Their evolving menu promises you’ll likely never have the same breakfast twice, but typically features crowd-pleasers like seasonal fruit dishes, inspired entrées and homemade baking befitting the elegant surroundings of an 1888 Queen Anne style Victorian home.

Not to be missed is the unforgettable breakfast experience at The Rosemount Inn + Spa (conveniently located in Kingston’s most historic area), where overnight guests are treated to a gourmet delight each morning. The creative forces in the kitchen maintain that breakfast should be an adventure, and please palettes with culinary creations like poached eggs drizzled with jalapeno aioli, fresh-baked cranberry and orange sourdough scones, or the house specialty, Welsh Toast.

Typically alternating between savoury and sweet options, guests of this historic inn can enjoy gourmet breakfasts ranging from house-made soufléed frittatas to brûléed bananas and kiwi—and everything in between (and accompanied by freshly baked croissants).
