We had an amazing brunch/breakfast buffet here on a Sunday morning. A hot and cold buffet with more options than you can possibly take advantage of. I ate way too much!

Ate here on Mother's Day. Enjoyed the flavored mimosas, the delicious food, and the price was excellent too! It was well worth it; we can't wait to visit D.C. Again just to go back here !
