Start to the day

Breakfast buffet had a wide assortment of food and tasted great. Might have needed another waiter on the floor during the breakfast rush though.

It cost $54 for 2 as the 18% tip is already included on the bill. The scrambled eggs were one big stuck together blob, you couldn't break it apart. The smoked salmon had a weird off taste, so bad I had to spit it out. The bacon and sausages were nice but not worth the exorbitant price.

I had breakfast at Aura and was pleasantly surprised with the buffet selections...as others have mentioned, there were different types of sausage, crispy bacon, fritattas, eggs Benedict, ricotta blintzes, pancakes, etc. I really enjoyed it and for $21 it is reasonable, since coffee and juice were included too. The service is great too.

For those working in the Seaport area this location offers great service and great food. If you are looking for lots of breakfast choices, but can't make up your mind, the buffet may be your best bet. Hot and cold choices are available and excellently prepared. The fruit is sweet, breads flaky and egg dished cooked creatively and just right.

Visited Aura with family recently. The brunch was great. They offer a very good selection. There is your normal fare(scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc...)which is very good. They also had a seafood cake benedict, two types of fritatta as well a very tasty chicken apple sausage. I thought that $21 for brunch in the seaport was reasonable. All in all,... More

Aura was the restaurant in the Seaport that was open for breakfast. We were greeted with a smile and well taken care of. Our waiter found us at the buffet to make sure that he got our drink orders, that were then waiting for us when we sat down. The food was good, and the buffet was reasonably priced at... More

Freshly squeezed OJ!! Limitless!! Bang! The $21 buffett was great, and if u think a bit much for breakfast each, works out well compared to the single items on the menu. Did i mention the OJ? lol Food was fresh and delicious, and just downstairs of the hotel!

My wife, inlaws and 7 years old son had Easter Brunch at Aura on Sunday - April 20th and it was excellent. The hotel did an excellent job creating a bunch that appealed to everyone of all ages and tastes. My wife and I prefer a bit more eclectic / new American cuisine, my son likes the basics and inlaws... More
