I sent my husband downstairs to the Market to see about bringing dessert up to our room one night. He came back with a decadent mint chocolate brownie and a raspberry lemon blondie- both were SO yummy! He also went down late morning one day...More

Instead of going to a usual coffee joint, fancy it up with gourmet crafted espresso beverages and great and heathy meals-to-go!

Though a bit on the pricy side, this is a very nice spot for coffee, tea, salads and treats. It is also a nice place to watch the game or sit by the fire.

Good food and much better prices than the other restaurants at the hotel. I suggest you get food and drinks from here and then go outside and sit by the grass and eat your food and enjoy the view.

Didn't love it here. The cookies were average and the mini red velvet cake I bought was stale. The iced tea was good.

Paid $40 for a sandwich, fruit and dessert. Nothing was particularly good. For these prices I expect something special. Get out of the hotel and try the deli/bakery just outside. Don't waste your time here.

Being in the Ritz you expect it to be expensive, but I had a pretty standard salad with chicken on it, and a diet coke. It cost me $28. I was shocked. It was average tasting, but for $28, I would never eat it again.More
