The Sea Horse B&B is new on the market, but we have over 30 years of experience in hospitality by hosting many friends, colleagues and relatives who decided to spend their holidays in Soverato.
Among the many guests, there have been those who enjoyed eating a good few dishes as part of their breakfast – that usually comes with a digestive – and there have been those who were satisfied with a tiny portion of breakfast with a cup of tea.
We then realized that the breakfast is a ritual that everyone celebrates in their own way and we decided to give the opportunity to customize the breakfast to your liking, once you will be in our B&B in Soverato.
We offer a wide menu of drinks and dishes to create your ideal breakfast. As the days goes by you can tell us which perfumes you would like to be waken up in our B&B in Soverato and we will prepare your customized breakfast - everything fresh and tasty.
For those who are undecided, we have created a section of suggestions for breakfast.
|Breakfast to Seahorse B&B|
In our B&B we respect the nature cycles, paying attention to the rhythms of the microclimate of Soverato.
We serve only local, genuine and seasonal products. For example, we do not offer orange juice between August and October. The only foods out of season, that we would like to offer to you, are the typical dishes of Christmas or Easter, which, if required, can also be served at other times of the year.
Soverato and the surrounding area have a long history of coffee roasting.
There are two companies near Soverato that produce delicious coffee blends. You cannot smell the delicious aroma of roasted coffee from our bed and breakfast, but we are always ready to make you a lovely coffee with our espresso coffee machine.
At The Seahorse B&B we serve espresso in the classic small porcelain cup or in the small glass, macchiato with hot and foamy milk or with cold milk, long, short and corretto - with a shot of local spirit. We also offer other popular variations of the simple espresso coffee like cappuccino, latte macchiato or iced coffee.

But for us the coffee is much more than just a simple hot drink and in our bed and breakfast - it speaks many languages:
Finally, the specialty of our bed and breakfast is Il Nocciolino, a delicious nutty version.
Instead of the instant chocolate we prefer the homemade, cooked one without any added flavour. We like to spice it up with cinnamon, orange, hazelnut or red pepper - you tell us how you like it and we will prepare it for you.
Teas - green or black - and infusions follow the rites of the continents and the countries in which they have spread over the time. In Soverato especially during the summer iced tea is a very popular drink, but in our B&B we always prefer to prepare the traditional one. It is up to you if want to enjoy it plain or enrich it with sugar, honey, milk, or with a slice of lemon. It is also up to you if you wish to have some delicious homemade dessert with it (please see our homemade desserts section).
In addition to the common fruit juices, Soverato also offers a large range of locally produced beverages, which have their own history in the region of Calabria.
Between November and July is the time for the production of oranges. We have yellow or red ones, whose fragrances can be enjoyed in the glass, after being squeezed.
Bergamot is an excellent product of Calabria. This plant is very rare and sought after and lends itself to a variety of uses, grows wild in the microclimate offered by the Ionian coast of Calabria in the south of Soverato.
The almond milk is believed to have a monastic tradition: it was used as a substitute for milk during Lent.
Finally we also offer a wide variety of original coffees and coffee drinks.
|Fruit salad - The Seahorse B&B||Fresh fruit - The Seahorse B&B|
Fresh seasonal fruit shakes with milk and sugar or simply pureed fruit is always available to help you wake up in our B&B in Soverato.
Fruit salad is a pleasant way to enjoy the rich variety of local fruit mixed with some exotic fruit. It is fresh and healthy dish that can be enjoyed with a tasty dessert or you can try it with a spoon of homemade ice cream.
It can be homemade or bought in the shop. However we prefer the homemade one enriched with seasonal fruit.
We offer a variety of homemade jam made with fruit from Soverato and its surroundings. You can enjoy it with a slice of homemade bread or eat it with croissant. You are always welcome to try it with the typical Hungarian pancake, “palacsinta”. Trust us, you are going to love it.
Homemade - hot from the oven or just pick up in the bakery. You can have it plain or filled with chocolate or marmalade.

During your holiday in Soverato we can teach you how to cook at home all the stuff you usually buy at the supermarket. We teach you how to mix local ingredients according to the procedures of the Calabrian tradition and our family experience.
We offer a beginner cookery course that you can extensively customize, perhaps choosing to learn how to prepare one dish, such as potato gnocchi, or a full dinner with starter, main course and dessert. You tell us what you would like to learn and we will customize the course for you.
As part of the course we offer you what for us is the real secret of cooking: the obtaining of basic foods. The course begins at the local market or in the stall of the fishermen in Soverato. A good choice of food is the first and fundamental step to prepare delicious meals.
We don’t give you certificates at the completion of the course, because we do not claim to make you a great chef but will certainly help you to enjoy cooking and have fun during the course.
Our aim is to give you practical and tasty ideas for the cooking of everyday, a little bit of knowledge of the culture and culinary history of Soverato/Calabria and the pleasure of cooking at home, in a healthy and delicious manner.
