DAILY BREAKFAST (x3)
We start you off with freshly ground coffee or a selection of organic loose leaf teas, follow with our homemade granola toasted with Tilba Honey, freshly squeeze your OJ using oranges from the orchard and then treat you to our big breakfast starring our very fresh farm eggs or perhaps something sweet like our house made Belgium waffles. Perfect start to the TLF experience.
