Breakfast is served from 8:30 to 9 o'clock a.m. Fruits and breakfast bread are represented regularly; we had soft-boiled eggs decorated to resemble the eater one morning and a breakfast custard--think breakfast creme brulee--the other. My husband, who does not eat eggs, was served a breakfast bread pudding instead, as we had informed the hosts of his dietary preference. I would also suggest that if you are watching your weight and wish to stick to your diet, make this known ahead of time as well! The Jabberwock serves some of the most appetizing and caloric breakfast foods I have ever seen. If you do not wish to drink coffee, you may choose either tea or cocoa; the cocoa is rich and quite fine. The signature breakfast beverage is the Jabber Juice, a thick and delicious blended juice that seems to be based in pineapples and coconut juice. Fortunately, the Jabber Juice supply seems to be unending; I had three glasses of it the first morning we were there and profited greatly from its nutrients during my sightseeing.
