The service was fantastic and the waiter was the best. Varied menu and it was hard to make a decision. The Wildcat Catch sandwich was so delicious. Freshest of white fish.

Unlike most hotels, breakfast and lunch at the Globe Cafe is reasonably priced. On the weekends they have a buffet that includes an omelette station.

I had an excellent breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, 2 slices of grilled ham, home fries, and English muffin. Cost was only $9.00. Great quality and taste for a very low price. Most unusual for a Hilton.
