Dining Experiences at the White Doe Inn
Cuisine is an essential part of the bed & breakfast experience. The White Doe Inn is pleased to have Chef Carol setting the stage for us to proudly offer a relaxed, intimate, and romantic dining experience. Great care is given to serving only the freshest foods, garnished with edible herbs and flowers from the Inn’s own gardens. Weather permitting, you can enjoy communing with nature on our beautiful veranda.
The White Doe Inn is pleased to provide outstanding beginning to your day with a delicious, four-course plated breakfast that will delight your palate and be please your eyes. Homemade cereal, artisan breads, and gourmet coffee and teas set the tone for breakfast. Fresh fruit starts the morning followed by Southern style grits, a delicious entrée and finally a surprise ending of one of our signature breakfast desserts. Gluten free and other special dietary options are offered with advance notice. Seating is 8:30-9:30 AM.
Complimentary Afternoon Desserts
Guests returning to The White Doe Inn after a day of fun-filled adventure on the Outer Banks will find delicious homemade desserts, a selection of famous teas and our delicious gourmet roasted coffee. During warm weather our special fruited iced tea is the beverage of choice. On colder blustery days our signature hot apple-cranberry sider or hot chocolate is the perfect treat. The wrap-around porches, veranda, and gardens beckon guests to slow down and enjoy the quiet breezes and easy conversation while recharging before an evening of fine dining or entertainment. When there is a chill in the air, guests can retire to the parlors and bedchambers to relax by a cozy fireplace.
Our Lite-Fare Menu is perfect for guests checking in late, planning a day trip to the beach, sailing on the beautiful waters of Shallowbag Bay, or returning from a day trip just wanting to relax with a light meal on the verandah, your balcony or taking advantage of one of our cozy fireplaces. Chef Carol has crafted a menu for our guests to choose from. Reservations should be made in advance. Check below for the Lite Fare Menu and pricing.
