Fantastic pastries....and all are two for one price after 3 pm each day. Good selection of coffees, teas, and healthy plates for small or large eaters. Take out service is excellent if you want to take a 'picnic' lunch or dinner to the lake...only a six block walk from the hotel.

We just had the breakfast from the counter, had Danish, scones, muffins, individual egg soufflés, oatmeal, Starbucks. It all tasted homemade. The cinnamons rolls, warming in a frying pan was a cute and yummy touch. We did not order off the menu, but the good looked good.

Great, friendly waitstaff. A very good breakfast menu. Excellent service with the Pfister Hotel flair! Good way to start the day from sweet roles and coffee to a full breakfast. All very tasty.

Sunny, cozy place. Ask to be seated by the window. You'll enjoy the street view without the street noise. Delicious breakfast. Smoked salmon to die for!

We enjoyed the cafe. It was downstairs with east access to the main lobby. The staff were professional and courteous. We especially enjoyed the breakfast. There pancakes are delicious. The coffee was fresh, hot and strong (the way I like it). The cafe was clean, which is important to our family.

Starbucks coffee, but does not take Starbucks card. For a quick breakfast it is fine as the items are limited. Good service, very nice people in the Cafe.
