Wide assortment on buffet

The choices are broad when choosing Mares for breakfast at the Ritz. Fruit, cereal, omelet station, scrambled eggs, thick bacon , etc, etc. The service is also top rate.

We had the breakfast buffet four times during our stay at the Ritz Carlton. We winced at the price at first, but realized it was worth it. Custom omelets - great for us since we do egg white and veggies. The Cornmeal Maize cereal is amazing and our server, Joey, even brought me the recipe when I raved about it.... More

Had the buffet daily. FYI it's 34 pp .. It's the same buffet menu daily so it can for a bit boring. If you are thinking about ala carte...That may cost you more than the buffet. Service is great and everyone is friendly. A special thank you to Robert and to Angel for starting our day great.

I went here for the breakfast buffet. It was your typical buffet except that the service was outstanding. Everyone calls you by name. The food was good too. I had bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, oatmeal, and coffee. They had omelets, eggs, pastries, breads, etc.

To start with there is nothing extraordinary wonderful or luxurious to justify the price. The assortment of items offered, while large, are plain and ordinary with little difference from the free breakfasts offered by Residence Inn. Yes there is an omelet station but how much is an omelet worth? The omelet Chef Mike is very personable and an excellent omelet... More

They had a wonderful breakfast buffet (included with our room package). There was a great variety of everything you could think of. Mike at the omelet station did a fantastic job. He was very busy, but always very friendly!

Since this is the only breakfast restaurant, they know they have you so the prices are very high. The a la carte options end up costing almost as much as the buffet if u plan to order coffee or other drinks so I suggest just going with the buffet. They buffet offerings are great and they include cappuccino with the... More
