During our stay at the Black Point Inn in late June 2013, Edward and I began each day with hearty breakfasts at The Chart Room on Prouts Neck before venturing out to walk along the spectacular Cliff Walk that circles the exclusive Prouts Neck, enjoy a bicycle ride, stroll the expansive white sand beaches, or explore the nearby areas.
Sitting by the window at an inside table overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or sitting at a table outside on the spacious deck with a steaming cup of coffee and enjoying the bounty of Maine products was truly a delicious way to start the day.
When it comes to breakfast food, Edward is a traditionalist, and during our stay at the hotel, he enjoyed The Chart Room on Prouts Neck's Traditional Eggs Benedict served on an English muffin with a Maine twist instead of ham it featured succulent lump crab, fresh Hollandaise sauce, and a generous amount of home fried potatoes.

On another morning he had the Two Egg Omelet decadently made with all the bells and whistles including ham, cheese, onions, peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and lump crab, served with home fried potatoes, bacon, and an English muffin.

For me, breakfast does not get any better than when starting the day with Traditional Buttermilk Pancakes made with Maine blueberries, and served with whipped butter and Maine Maple Syrup, which was a delicious celebration of Maine products.

We also had lunch at the restaurant and Edward especially enjoyed their hearty New England Clam Chowder made with chopped surf clams, bacon, and light cream, and accompanied by a bag of Westminster Oyster Crackers.

I had the Asparagus Lavender Soup, one of the soups of the day, accompanied with Westminster Oyster Crackers, and what a lovely difference a hint of lavender made to this classic, delicate soup.

We also sampled their tasty crab cake appetizers, which were two succulent cakes studded with minced scallions and peppers, and served with salsa cruda and crème fraiche.
Edward had the Grilled Crab Melt made with lump crabmeat and dill havarti cheese on sourdough bread, accompanied by house made potato salad and a pickle, which was perfection itself, and well worth a trip to Maine to enjoy it.

When in Maine, one must have a Lobster Roll - A Maine Tradition, and their version had a touch of mayonnaise, shredded iceberg lettuce, tomato, and sweet lobster claw and tail meat overflowing a buttered and grilled New England Style Roll, accompanied by shoestring sweet potato fries and a pickle. If the lobster were any fresher, I would have needed to be on the boat to eat it.
