We ate breakfast after staying in the hotel. The coffee cups were small and needed to be refilled several times. There was only one person working but service was slow. Three tables were occupied, so I would not consider it busy. The biscuit was over done, however they did give a discount. We will eat elsewhere next time.

It was awesome. I got free room service for breakfast the first morning and the lady who delivered it was so nice and polite. The second morning I went down to eat in the restaurant and it was even better. The service and staff were very professional and attendant to detail.

We stayed at the Foundry Park Inn and Spa and decided to have breakfast at the Hoyt House on Saturday morning. We walked in and stood in the foyer for about 10 minutes until someone said "someone will be right with you" we waited another 2 or 3 minutes and were seated. The server took our drink order - unsweetened tea for me and coffee for my husband - we sat there a good 15 minutes before the server came back and said "we will have to brew you some tea." At this point we got up to leave, the server apologized to us and said they were very short staffed. This was Valentine's Day Weekend!!!!! Short staffing should not happen. I had just seen the Chef walking toward the Foundry Park office. I was very disappointed as I had spent quite a while reading the menu and was excited to try their food. If we ever go back to Athens, Georgia, I'm sure we will stay with Foundry Park Inn and Spa again and I will give the Hoyt House another chance, but two is all they will get from me!

Had breakfast here during our stay at the Foundry Park Inn and thought the waitress, Annise, delightful, but the cook couldn't seem to get the food right. The waffles weren't quite done, even on the second try, and the omelette had the onions my husband asked be omitted.

The Hoyt House presented a wonderful menu with affordable side items. The bisquits and oatmeal were a real treat. Service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend!!!
