Yes it's a buffet and yes it's cheap but it needs flavor. Bland and dried up buffet. Still looking , might have to give our $9 hotel breakfast a try. Too embarrassed to take a post a picture.

Its still a buffet so some... More

Very good service, a variety of foods, breads, juices, desserts. Only item I did not like was the bacon. It tasted artificial. I had this on two occasions, and it tasted the same. Friendly and helpful staff.

In that downtown area there are many options for breakfast, but somehow many locals come to this restaurant to enjoy the first meal of... More

The buffet was a good, fast place to get a breakfast for a reasonable price. I was not impressed with the selection or quality of the food but it did for a quick meal in the morning. The hot cakes were like little hockey pucks, about the same size but flat and no flavor. The chilaquiles were dry, and the... More

Many locals, busy, many waiters. They will bring bread basket, any juice, coffee to table. Order your eggs made any way, great egg chef. Large variety of dishes. Fresh fruit. We ate there every morning for 3 days while stayed at hotel attached. Only open for breakfast.

The service here was great, but the food at the buffet was pretty awful and I'm not want to complain. I didn't realize how old a lot of these reviews are- there must have been changes.
