Breakfast in our dining room begins at 8:30am. We can accommodate an earlier breakfast. Seating will end at 9:00am. We seek to prepare everything fresh and cooked to order for your dining pleasure. Some dishes are prepared that morning for the entire inn and keeping it warm for an extended period of time might cause it to lose its flavor and texture.

During breakfast service, our goal is to give prompt, attentive service to our guests. Our dining experience is where we encourage several parties to dine at our dining table to meet and converse among yourselves and your hosts.

Breakfasts at The Gridley Inn are homemade and bountiful. On special weekends for college activities, I might extend an invitation (based on availability) for our guests to have an immediate family member namely their son and/or daughter come to breakfast free of charge. 

This pertains to parents of students from Hobart William Smith College and the New York Chiropractic College.

Guests are welcome to invite a guest (based on availability) for breakfast at the rate of $20. We would appreciate a days’ notice to have enough on hand.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
