We had a glitch with our door keys during our stay, so we got to try out the breakfast buffet for free the last day of our stay. The buffet is solid, with everything looking home-cooked and presented in skillets and roasting pans that you'd find in someone's kitchen. They apparently have their own little apiary and have fresh house-harvested... More

They have a menu and a buffet. The buffet is the better deal ($22 I think) but we ordered off the menu to avoid overeating. Our tab was $46 for two omelets and two cups of coffee. The server was very attentive. The atmosphere feels like Denny's (no windows, the lights are too bright, the furniture looks like it can... More

I went to the Aura restaurant for breakfast. The menu was full of delicious items and I initially ordered only from the menu but both my hostess, Ashley, and my waiter, Michael, advised me to have the buffet because everything I wanted was there and much more and it would cost the same. I really did not want a big... More

I went to Aura for breakfast one of the mornings I stayed at the Seaport and my colleague told our server what her ideal breakfast was (and it wasn't a menu item). He was all over it and served her her perfect breakfast. It was delightful to see.

My husband and I frequented this restaurant on the 2 mornings of our weekend stay. He ordered the buffet and I ordered an omelette. On our first morning, our server brought me a selection of fruit from the buffet as he felt my meal would take a few minutes to come out. I felt this was very thoughtful of him... More

We went the week-end of Jan 16-17 to a late brunch and the $21 buffet was essentially inedible. I am not sure the food was good to start with but all of it had been left out for several hours and it was hard, stale, and gross. I should have asked for money back. One of us got the huevos... More
