Bed and Breakfasts Could Serve Lunch under Proposed Legislation

A bill is currently circulating in the Legislature that would allow a Bed and Breakfast establishment to serve meals other than breakfast to guests. Current law exempts Bed and Breakfasts from having a restaurant license to prepare and serve only breakfasts to their guests. This bill would remove this meal restriction and allow a Bed and Breakfast to serve any meal to their guests. This proposal is expected to be introduced shortly.
