Breakfast buffett has great selection

Great selection at the buffet for breakfast and price was comparable to other buffets. Only negatives was the method of paying the bill (you have to fill out tip portion prior to charge card being ran). Server didn't refill beverages

Usually when you have meals at the hotel they aren't the greatest and the service can be subpar. Not the case here. We had the breakfast buffet for some family members and ordered off the lunch menu for others. The food was very good and the staff was wonderful. Our family was the last to eat the buffet and before... More

Their Breakfast Buffet was $11.50, which includes coffee. The buffet had several different kinds of fruit, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage links, pancakes/waffles with several topping and some sweets to finish the lineup.

We got the package with dinner & breakfast and were very pleased with the cafe. We ate lunch on the first day as well and found it quite affordable. The service was top notch and the food was very good. (Nice little beer selection too!)

We thought we would stop in and think about staying here for a couple of nights. The kids were hungry so while we inquired about staying, I took the kids for something to eat in the Elf Cafe. We sat at a booth and waited for a long time for someone to come and help us. Not worth the wait,... More
