The staff was extremely accommodating to our group, which included 2 children that needed high chairs and an antsy 8-year-old, for whom they provided crayons.

Best biscuits and gravy I've ever had. Who knew they could be so high class? Exceptional service and fair prices for a high-end hotel.

Great service, nice atmosphere, wonderful food. We had the benedict and it was fabulous. Great omelets, eggs and meats. For a real treat ask to sit in the lobby lounge!

Nice, attentive staff. food was tasty. Coffee was sometimes a little stale, but for the most part it was a nice experience. Breakfast did not come with price of room (for us, anyway), and I'm used to hotels that give me free breakfast.

These folks know Hollandaise! Hubby had a chorizo based Eggs Benedict with a spicy sauce, I had a spinach Benedict with a tomato based Hollandaise. Delectable! At my request they scrambled my eggs vs. poaching. Excellent service, good food.

Recent renovations to the Café have given this restaurant a nice open airy atmosphere with lots of light. Food as good as ever. Casual setting.

Food was very good at reasonable prices. Coffee is starbucks if you are a fan of that brand. Don't miss the Scottish salmon plate. A good value and plenty of salmon on the plate.

Had the fried french toast, coated in corn flakes covered in a berry compote. Wow! Didn't even need any maple syrup. Not to be missed!
