“Your hospitality exceeded our expectations, and the breakfast was superb!” 
— D. and J. A., Costa Mesa, CA

“From the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to Wicky Up Ranch Bed & Breakfast—

what a wonderful improvement in food and service…a great time, great food, great hospitality.”
 J and A Simpson, Dorset, England


 A Sumptuous Treat

ne of the highlights of California lodging at Wicky-Up Ranch is our generous candlelight breakfast of delicious treats, creatively prepared and served. You will feel special as you dine on Villeroy & Boch China and use vintage sterling silver flatware that belonged to Monica’s mother. The philosophy that we bring to the food we prepare echoes that of the Slow Foods Movement of which Wicky Up Ranch is a member. We maintain that food is at its best when it is local, fresh and simply enhanced. The morning meal at our country bed and breakfast inn includes fresh-squeezed orange juice served daily and white grapefruit from our citrus ranch; a variety of locally grown fruits in season; a variety of muffins and artisan breads; hot teas, including herbal, and coffee made from freshly ground organic, shade grown, rain forest blend beans. The memorable menu features a scrumptious hot entree.  Be sure to visit our Recipes page to sample some of our guests’ favorite recipes. When available, dishes are made from eggs laid by free-range hens from a local farm.
