For $80 a person, they can do better. Decent selection but considering how the rest of the hotel is so perfect, this place is a major disappointment.

Whether you are staying at the Park Hyatt or a local the Sunday Brunch is fantastic! Everything from made to order omelets to an over the top selection of seafood, cured meats and fantastic pastries. You will not be disappointed.

Views outdoors - lovely and very large indoor dining area(s). Half booths and tables - high level dining. Don't miss the Sunday buffet. I think it's one of the best I've every had. Picture everything you want and expect in a fancy restaurant buffet....and more.

Had the breakfast buffet before departing the hotel recently. Server was attentive and polite. Food was above average for buffet food and offerings were about average. Was not worth the $32 price tag however.
