Dining at the Balch

Simple. Rustic. Elegant.


Breakfast, Historic Balch Hotel



Enjoy freshly housemade breakfast muffins, housemade granola, along with hard boiled eggs, seasonal fruit and vanilla yogurt. Yum.

We source local and organic whenever possible. We feature natural products from our neighbor, Azure Standard, as well as farm fresh eggs and produce.

You'll receive this packaged in a basket that you can take to your room, in the bistro or enjoy on our outdoor patio.

A variety of tea and coffee also awaits you. We offer coffee from Post Canyon Coffee Roasters (The Dalles), artisan teas from Good Medicine Tea (Hood River) and our own secret-recipe malty cocoa, made here with love.

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? 😉

You're our kind of people!
