The food was delicious and the waiters were very personable and courteous. Marco was our morning waiter and he liked teasing me about my morning tea.

With two little children, a solid breakfast buffet is key in the mornings. Their breakfast was delicious and had all the staples for a good breakfast, but also had other dishes as well. You can also order a la carte.

Located in the lobby of the Seaport Hotel, Aura has one of the best cups of coffee I have had anywhere. The breakfast buffet is excellent even if it is a bit pricey. They have fresh takes on the classics and execute them very well. AT $23 plus tax and gratuity, a bit high but the quality was first rate.

My son and I had breakfast here twice while staying in the hotel. The first time we ate off of the menu and the food was great. The second we chose the buffet which had wonderful items to choose from. Way past your typical breakfast buffet. We had two different servers and both were exceptional. The truly value customer service... More

The service was spot on, the venue comfortable and the food well prepared the wild mushroom and cheese omelet scrumptious. Go back. Maybe.

Met two colleagues for breakfast here earlier this week. I had the buffet, it was awesome with lots of healthy options. Each of the others raved about their breakfast from the menu. Elegant surroundings are a big plus

Good selection, reasonable price given location. Some of the food was luke/cold. Selections were not well labeled making selection challenging. Waiter was very attentive...almost to the point of distraction.

We had a glitch with our door keys during our stay, so we got to try out the breakfast buffet for free the last day of our stay. The buffet is solid, with everything looking home-cooked and presented in skillets and roasting pans that you'd find in someone's kitchen. They apparently have their own little apiary and have fresh house-harvested... More
