The name should give it away. Twenty6 is the breakfast/lunch/dinner option at the La Quinta Resort. But instead of something like, "Maggie's Diner" or "All Day Grill", it has an upscale name to go along with upscale prices. In fairness, if you are staying at the La Quinta Resort, paying upscale rates, you should expect to pay upscale prices for this on-site location.
Even during the dog days of summer. this jack-of-all places gets busy. We were seated promptly this Sunday morning but the day before, the wait for lunch was quite long. While its purpose is to feed the masses, it is a relatively small restaurant with aspirations to be fine dining.
Four of us ordered breakfast. They offer a $24.95 buffet, but none of us wanted that much food. One of their breakfast claims to fame is about a dozen specialty eggs benedicts. I tried the smoked salmon benedict while my wife tried the "country" with sausage and gravy. I would tell you the salmon worked, the sausage & gravy not so much.
Our friends ordered the lox & bagel and the French toast. Both were deemed a success, particularly the lox & bagel. The French toast was two large pieces of Brioche bread that our friend could not even finish.
Needless to say the overall cost of the meal was on the expensive side. The ambiance, service and general feel of the place was quite good. I didn't mind going there one morning but it seemed to me to be a splurge rather than a necessity because of the cost and the need to bring traditional foods up another level. That might appeal to some foodies but there is also something to be said for a $6.95 Denny's grand slam. Nothing like that exists here.
