Excellent breakfast buffet and wonderful dinners. We have had our Xmas dinner there for a number of years. Yummy and far better than the usual hotel restaurant. Reasonably priced with a discount for guests of the hotel.

Breakfast at La Scene Cafe and Bar is a nice cozy experience. The salmon eggs benedict with potato pancakes were so warm and delicious. The waitress, Virginia, is such a delight. Every morning she greeted us with a smile and remembered our preferences for hot...More
