Sometimes it’s easier to satisfy pint-sized cravings in the comfort of your guest room as opposed to schlepping to the hotel restaurant, so parents will be pleased to know that The Cloister offers a full children’s room service menu. For breakfast (served 6 to 11 a.m.), kids can order silver dollar pancakes or a waffle; each comes a choice of two toppings — strawberries, blueberries, bananas, mini chocolate chips or whipped cream — as well as a meat —bacon, sausage patty or link, or chicken-apple sausage.
The lunch menu (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) features peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, macaroni and cheese in a cheddar-Parmesan cream sauce, chicken fingers, or a healthy grilled chicken breast with steamed broccoli and carrots. Pair lunch with a side: French fries, chips, fruit or carrot and celery sticks. And for dinner (6 to 10 p.m.), the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel repeats several of the midday dishes, with grilled cheese, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, mac and cheese and chicken fingers on the menu.
While there isn’t a kid-specific dessert menu, we’re sure that little ones won’t mind ordering from the adults’ sweets section. Try the old-fashioned chocolate layer cake and the Gold Brick sundae (scoops of vanilla topped with a hardened chocolate shell, whipped cream and a cherry), the latter of which is a longtime favorite at the Sea Island hotel.
