Our guests sometimes tell us that they don’t need to visit Galena restaurants during their time here because we already feed them plenty. Between our gourmet, 3-course breakfasts that will leave you anything but hungry and our sumptuous afternoon wine and appetizer tray that is delivered straight to your room each afternoon, that might be true. Even so, we have a few tried and true favorite Galena restaurants that we love recommending to guests – even if it’s for something as simple as a quick snack and a drink to celebrate the time together.
There’s a lot more to staying at our Galena Bed and Breakfast than great food, though!
