Gourmet Food

nectarine-saladOne of the highlights of your evening at East Brother Light Station is the meal, beginning with hors d'oeuveurs accompanied by a glass of champagne while overlooking the scenic views of the bay.  Dinner is four courses of delight, accompanied by wine, a unique and delicious experience you will share with up to four other couples at a community table. 

A carefully prepared breakfast with plenty of variety is offered the following morning at 9 a.m. (don't worry early risers, Coffee is out by 7 a.m., and fruit and cookies are always available).  Breakfast always includes homemade granola, seasonal fruits, pastries, and a hot dish.

The food itself is artfully prepared with a variety of cultural influence. Ingredients are chosen and gathered with great care, taking into consideration season, freshness and availability.  Everything is made from scratch.

“You can sit and watch big ships and little seals cruise by, or gaze at the reposing birds or the rushing tide below the dock. There’s a sense of intimacy here and a feeling of remoteness, even though it’s just a short distance to the mainland.”

- Doug McConnell, Bay Area Backroads
