Your memorable stay at The Raritan Inn includes a delicious breakfast served either in our cozy dining room or out on the back patio next to the flowing millrace.
We take pride in using only the freshest ingredients and locally grown fruits. Melick's Farmstand down the road provides locally grown fresh fruit which is displayed in our fruit and yogurt parfait, with homemade old-fashioned granola and fresh fruit layered in for a dazzling yet nutritious start to your day.
Enjoy the view of our 1880's fully-restored barn as you sit and eat breakfast.

Our eggs are provided fresh from a local farm with free-range Rhode Island Reds and other exotic breeds. Be sure to ask to see the eggs before they are cracked...some are a beautiful purple hue and yes, there will be a handful of green eggs!
Each day we display recipe cards for some of the breakfast items; feel free to take one along to reproduce the splendid Raritan Inn breakfast experience at your own home.
Enjoy locally made breakfast sausage from Rambo's Country Store down the road in Califon, or perhaps thick slices of country bacon from Rambo's will be more to your liking.
