Great food, nice atmosphere & service. Wonderful chef making custom omeletes. Kids under 5 eat free. Our hotel package included breakfast for 2 adults, otherwise would have been $30+ per person.

The buffet breakfast has a large variety of quality food. The best option is the custom omelette bar. There are many ingredients to choose from, and they prepare it fresh right there. Fruit, bacon, oatmeal, pastries, sausage, pancakes, coffee, juice, mimosas, etc. are all available.
