As far as continental breakfasts go, this is just average. Good thing we had vouchers and did not have to pay for it. I would much rather go to a local coffee shop for a decent breakfast or a decent donut at Claytons.

Staff are awesome here but the breakfast buffet is just average. In fact, except for the surroundings and enjoying an ocean view and being at the Hotel Del Coronado the value is not optimal.More

We ate a couple of times at the Sheerwater and I do not believe they have bad meals. The waiters are excellant and had excellant suggestions for the menu.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure. I know there is a huge buffet. But I don't know if all of it is available for a continental breakfast. That means get be just cold food, but I'm not certain.
