the Oscar Gill House is served family-style in our dining room. Typical fare
egg and chile casseroles, blueberry pancakes, sourdough french
toast or smoked salmon quiche. Though we try to accommodate the needs of
guests on special diets, this may not always be possible. Fresh fruit
and wholesome grains are always available.
