Favorite Flavor Purveyors

We are happy to live in one of the hottest culinary spots in the country and we try to share some of the best the area has to offer in every breakfast.  The following are some of our favorite sources:

Red Jacket Orchards – We serve their cold-pressed, unfiltered juices with every breakfast.  Guests enjoy exceptional flavor in any variety whether it’s a blend like the ‘Black & Blue Stomp’ (a black currant and blueberry combination) or their Raspberry or Strawberry juices.  We also obtain fruits and vegetables year-round from their farm store in Geneva.


Dalai Java Coffee – Every morning we have freshly brewed coffee from a special blend of beans made just for the Oliver Phelps by Ben at the Dalai Java.  We think his small batch, tailored roasting produces great tasting coffee.  We also like that they use nothing but fair trade organic beans.  We consume as well as serve and it’s fair to say that the inn runs on Dalai Java coffee.

Greens and Beans CSA of Penn Yan – We try to source our fruits and vegetables as much as possible locally.  Our primary supplier is the Green and Beans CSA.  We love their fresh, seasonal produce that’s also 100% organic.

F. Oliver’s Oils and Vinegars – Great foods can always be enhanced with quality spices. oils and vinegars.  From subtle to bold, guests get to enjoy F. Oliver’s products in dishes like Baked Grapefruit with Ginger-Spiked Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar and Strawberries & Cream with Dark Chocolate Balsamic.

Muranda and Lively Run Cheeses – Not enough time to drive the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail?  We’ll bring some of the best to your breakfast table.  We love the variety and quality of Muranda’s cow and Lively Run’s goat cheeses in our savory dishes.

Rise & Shine Bakery – While we could bake our own bread, it’s hard to justify the time and effort when we have the yummy loaves at Rise & Shine only a block away on Main Street.  Larry’s English Muffin bread and Rosemary Focaccia are featured in cool weather breakfast stradas or under eggs and hollandaise in one of Lynne’s ‘Benedict’ variations.

Breakfast_Entree_OatmealPancakesandMapleSausageWohlschlegel’s Maple Syrup – With deference to New England and Canada and all of our wonderful guests from those places, we believe NY maple syrup matches their best.  Better yet, come judge for yourself.  From the other end of our lake we use Wohlschlegel’s Maple Syrup.  Drizzle it on your pancakes, or enjoy it on our grilled pineapple with bacon.

We also use Finger Lakes wines in many of our dishes, from sweet fruits like Lynne’s poached pears to her savory Greens, Eggs & Ham skillet.   The choice of vintners and vintages are so numerous and so good that there are too many to list here.  However, we’re always happy to discuss and recommend based on your preferences.
