We had an excellent breakfast here, after a night in the Hawthorne Hotel. The pancakes were fluffy and--as you'd expect--the maple syrup was real!

Enjoyed the Jazz and the brunch! It's a fixed price brunch, and offers breakfast breads, entree and dessert. The dining room is beautiful, and the service was attentive. The Jazz band played a lot of the old standard, and was enjoyable but not intrusive. Food was very good.

We had breakfast here for two mornings while staying at the Hawthorne Hotel. Coffee and omlets were excellent and portions large enough to share for light breakfast eaters. Coffee kept coming, and the decor was pretty. Prices typical for an upscale hotel dining room. A convenient way to start the day!

I only wanted a muffin and coffee however my husband ordered the full breakfast with no hash browns as he is allergic to onions. The breakfast took forever to arrive and when it finally did the hash browns were on the... More

Our first visit for breakfast and dinner was very nice! The staff was very welcoming. Our second day, the staff was slower. More focused on the next dining hour and how to place tables, silverware and napkins. very disappointed for the prices we paid.

Dear Sue N, Thank you for your feedback. Based on your comments, I have spoken to our dining services manager regarding resetting the room while diners are present, as it is indeed not very nice doing so with guests still being in the room. Best regards, Patrick Cornelissen General Manager More

We sampled a number of different items and everything we ordered was very good. The service was good but they could have been more attentive at refilling the... More

We had the jazz brunch. It was beautiful when we walked in and there was a jazz duo (piano and bass). They played wonderfully. The staff was very attentive. I had said on our reservation that it was our second honeymoon. The waiter and the manager congratulated us and brought us two glasses of champagne. I had a salad with... More
