We ate here for Saturday breakfast while staying at the Brown. The buffet included a variety of sweet rolls, oatmeal, granola and yogurt, lots of fruit, bacon, sausage, eggs and french toast. You also had a selection of cereals, juices and more. In addition to being delicious, it's beautifully set up. The staff were helpful and attentive. If you don't like buffets, you can order off the menu. We'll be back.

We had breakfast here twice during our stay. Generally I can accept poor service ion exchange for great food. Here we had poor- inattentive service and frankly the food was nothing special. I asked for orange marmalade on both visits- neither time was that remembered. The3ir idea of rye bread toast belies what rye bread is supposed to be... While my meals were forgettable at best, one morning my wife ordered the eggs benedict.....eggs were perfectly executed, which is not easy to do. That said, I was disappointed. Bright spot? Had a few drinks at their bar around lunchtime- I thought they were very well done.
