“Looking for a great breakfast buffet?”

The Courtyard restaurant in Galena's DeSoto House Hotel is a great place for breakfast, before you begin a day of shopping and viewing the sites of one of the nation's most historic communities. It is an attractive location, the ground floor of an enclosed four-story atrium with 19th Century paintings on the walls and antique fixtures. They serve breakfast daily, lunch on Saturday and Sunday. But the Sunday breakfast buffet is to die for. Usually, I'm not one for buffets of any kind. Too much food. I always fill my plate to overflowing. I feel guilty if I don't choose something of everything on the table. But the Sunday breakfast buffet at the Courtyard is a real treat that can't be passed up...pancakes, Belgian waffles, eggs, omelets, fresh fruit, sausage, bacon, ham, cereal, danish, coffee, juices. More than you can eat. Fast, friendly service. All in a very relaxing atmosphere. And at a reasonable price.

Impressive interior atrium space in the core of the historic DeSoto. 19th Century paintings on the walls. Ancient clock and light fixtures.

The server was pleasant and kept the coffee coming, but the meal took forever to arrive despite the room being almost empty. I had the pancakes; the wife had eggs. Portions were large, but not flavorful. Next time I'd go for the Belgian waffle. Decent prices.

We eat breakfast here every time we visit. We watched the video on the history of the Desoto House. When you sit in the restaurant & think about what happened where you are sitting you can't help but be impressed. Many favorites at this restaurant. Never had a bad meal!

The buffet is good but the belgian waffles are out of this world! Melt in your mouth -- always get raspberries and strawberries to put on top. Breakfast at the courtyard, before all the shops open is always on the top of my list of things to do in Galena.
