We really enjoyed our breakfast at the Pond Cafe. They have a breakfast bar that's all you can eat, or you can order from the many different dishes off the menu. Everything that we had was great. The service was also terrific. Highly recommend!

Best place for breakfast. The buffet is great! Make/create your own omelets! Linda is a great waitress. Everyone is nice and friendly. Great view of the mountain! Eat outside if the weather is good.
