Enjoy the Best Galena Breakfast at Hawk Valley Retreat

Look no further than Hawk Valley Retreat and Cottages for a Galena Breakfast experience unto itself. Our breakfasts are always homemade and include scratch-baked pastries. We generally serve between the hours of 8:30am and 9:30am so come on down when you are ready to join us. The open seating plan allows you the option of choosing available seating between tables set for two to six people depending upon the number of guests we have joining us each morning for breakfast. If you have events ahead of you that day and you would like your breakfast a little earlier, just let us know and we will be happy to accommodate your request.

Stay Safe Specials. From now through July 31st, 2020, any booking is eligible for one of our no additional cost Stay Safe packages that include either breakfast delivered to your room or a home-baked continental breakfast stocked in your cottage before you arrive. For guests staying in the main house, the option is available for a Continental Breakfast delivered to your room. Choose one of these rate types or select one of the add on items when you book the room. Breakfasts in the dining room will be reserved at a specific time in order to maintain social distancing.


Breakfast is served in the main house dining room which has panoramic views of the valley, our property, and of course the wildlife. Woodpeckers, Cardinals, and our flock of wild Turkeys will be your breakfast entertainment while you enjoy Jim’s latest culinary creation.

John grew up in the restaurant business and spent his career serving great food and beverage. Jim has a dietetics degree and spent his life catering and is happiest when feeding people. We put our 60 years of experience in the kitchen into the service of scratch baked and homemade. If you ask nice, we may even give you the recipe.

Of course, we understand that some of our guests may have certain dietary needs such as Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Vegan, dairy free, and if advised in advance of dietary restrictions we are more than happy to accommodate you. We want everyone to enjoy a full breakfast—you’re going to need it before you explore Galena Country!
