Good buffet breakfast

Wow what a variety of food hot and ready on the breakfast buffet. Omelets were also included in the price of the buffet. My ham and cheese omelet was large and tasty. The wait staff was very cordial and efficient. I think the price was reasonable considering the selection available. I... read more

My husband and I went to the breakfast brunch buffet at Hazel's. The selection was so-so with half being breakfast items and half lunch items. I was disappointed in the breakfast items. The bacon in particular was not good. The lunch items were much better. It was one of the cheaper meals we had in Gulf Shores and we did... More

Stopped on a Tues. with friends for lunch buffet and the food was very good. It closes at 2:00 PM so get there early. We have also been there for Sunday brunch and that was also very good. Not the problems that some people have stated in their reviews. We will definitely go back.

Stopped in for breakfast. Waitress seemed to be annoyed with us,she had the " hurry up and order" attitude. I chose the breakfast buffet. The bacon was nasty and the sausage was over cooked and tasted bad. The only saving grace was the omelette bar, it was the ONLY item edible. Shame on you for serving slop like that.........no pride... More

We went for breakfast. My husband had bacon and eggs that were good but I had the buffet and omelet. Omelet was over cooked and buffet selections weren't very good. Best thing in the cafe is the biscuits!! They were wonderful!

Buffet food was not hot, all food on the buffet looked like it came out of a can. A hair was found in the cold hashbrowns. Waitress was upset we looked on the menu instead of going straight for the buffet. The cheese on the omelet was not melted and was still cold. Paid $13 a person for a subpar... More

This local eatery in Gulf Shores had friendly staff with hilarious banter and good food. We ordered the buffet and no it wasn't for the healthy eater but was true to the southern cuisine. Plus you could special order your own omelot with the buffet. Clean, reasonable, and location is easily accessible.

Gulf Shores needs more breakfast places. We walked in and the waitress was extremely nice until we decided to order off the menu as opposed to getting the buffet. The food was ok, but nothing special.

While the staff is sweet and friendly, the food is very greasy. I ordered their Oscar omelette and it was like ingesting oil. Very unhealthy.

Our visit was greeted by very loud and friendly staff. Several tables were filled with very big eaters. The buffet was the draw. Everything you could want for breakfast was present. Eggs, bacon, sausage, corn beef hash, pancakes, French toast, biscuits.... With that said, you were also given the option of ordering from the menu. I chose the menu. I... More
