Breadnut Restaurant and Bar

Rosalie | (767) 446-1886

Breadnut Restaurant and Bar, part of 3 Rivers Eco Lodge, is located near Grand Fond; it's 9.4 miles to the east-northeast of Roseau. Don't overlook Rosalie when you're feeling like a knock-out serving of comfort food. It is important to note when you stay at 3 Rivers that Breadnut Restaurant and Bar is not a restaurant that is open all the time. The staff comes in only when orders have been placed and make the food then. This means that guests must order all of the meals they would like to eat at Breadnut in advance. If you don't order in advance, you don't eat! For breakfast, the offerings are pretty standard. Their most popular options are the local breakfast of codfish and green banana, but the chef is also rather proud of his fresh crepes and pancakes. Cocoa, tea, and local coffee are included in this meal. For dinner, the chef generally does a dish of the day which will contain a meat or fish main course together with a wide variety of local vegetables and provisions. Starters may be fresh soups or salads, while desserts might be anything from a sizzling banana to home made cakes.
