Abigail’s offers a three-course breakfast every morning from a menu that changes daily, as well as complimentary light evening appetizers. The hotel does not have a full-service restaurant.

Abigail's is famous for its dynamic three-course breakfasts. Our menu changes daily and is often flexible for those with specific dietary concerns. Breakfast service starts with a fresh baked good, followed by a fruit salad and an entrée. Daily features include a choice of either a "Light," "Sweet," or "Savoury" option with additional sides of a starch and protein. Abigail's breakfast is included in your room rate. A Breakfast Basket to enjoy breakfast in bed is also available upon request for an additional $15 per room.
Abigail's extends a social hour every night whereby we provide light complimentary appetizers (menu changes daily) for all of our guests to enjoy. Alcoholic beverages are purchasable during this time and we feature a fine selection of local beers and Canadian wines.
** Effective January 2022 – We have made the difficult decision to discontinue the complimentary evening appetizers due to rising food costs and financial difficulties during COVID-19. Appetizer plates will instead be available for purchase – details and pricing will be announced in fall/winter 2021
