When we were in Portland, we decided to stay at a quaint, quirky Bed & Breakfast called the Pomegranate Inn. The Inn itself was like being in a very eclectic museum. Our room was the “small” room but it was plenty large enough, with a beautiful design, super comfy bed, and lovely bath. Perhaps it’s because we’re New Yorkers who are used to small size, but I was surprised that this room would ever be considered small. We loved it! Here are some pictures of the inn itself.
The port wine poached pear was awesome. And the blue cheese could not have gone better with it.
But then the cheese blintz souffle came out… HOLY COW. This was as delicious as it was beautiful, if not more so. The bacon was crisp (the way I like it) and it had absolutely delicious peaches. The souffle itself was a cross between a fluffy pancake in texture and a blintz in flavor. Sensational.
This dish was so inspired that I actually wound up buying the innkeepers cookbook, The Art of Breakfast. If you love beautiful works of art for breakfast, this cookbook is great.
We absolutely loved our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Portland, ME.
