Homemade yogurt and great omelettes, unlimited fresh juice give this buffet an edge over most others. I find it a bargain at $34.95 but that's I plow through three omelets and 5 or 6 yogurts.

Large hotel restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining. Menu offers many fresh and health (e.g., salad) options. Service was great; food was very good as well. I would eat here again if confined to this resort.

They have a very good selection of food, fruits, veggies, make your own omelettes, etc. A little high priced though. Value to cost ratio is skewed.

This place is never busy but there is always good service and great food. Buffet brunch on weekends is super good. I would go here with my wife and visiting family often. One of my favorite places to eat in all SD area. Small dishes of quality food. Limited selection but super quality and tasty.
