Dining at the Historic Balch Hotel

Simple. Elegant. Natural.




Simple wholesome elegant fare

Start the day with our delicious home made breakfast. We source local and organic whenever possible. We feature natural products from our neighbor, Azure Standard

Enjoy a buffet of freshly baked mini fritattas and homemade muffins and granola, along with hard boiled eggs, seasonal fruit and vanilla yogurt.

A variety of juices, tea and coffee awaits you. We offer Balch blend coffee from Hood River Roasters, malty cocoa and a variety of specialty teas.

Or enjoy a Mimosa for those special occasions. And when it comes to mornings at a charming getaway in the Gorge, when isn't it a special occasion? ;)

To-go breakfasts are available for you busy travelers. For mid-day munching, we offer box lunches for your touring pleasure. (Please inquire in advance so we can prepare this fresh for you.) But really  if you can, sit and stay a while. You'll like it. 

Our box lunches include: 

  • Mediterranean wrap with fresh greens, quinoa, organic chicken and feta dill dressing
  • Fresh organic baby greens or spinach salad with or without grilled chicken and tomato vinaigrette dressing
  • Delicious house made soups
  • Seasonal cheese and fruit, hummus and antipasto plates.
