Recommend this place for breakfast, got to the hotel a little early before my spa appointment. Very nice staff, wait for a table was a little longer than I would've liked but overall very nice

We had booked room with breakfast option. Nicely lit and decorated with historical elements. Our waitress was nice, but difficult to understand at times. I had to ask several times for our glass of OJ that we had ordered only to find out a different server had delivered to a different table. The container she gave us for the left... More

They provided great coffee choices and all the staff were very friendly. The service was fast for take-away or dinning in the café.

Many choices that were all described deliciously. Those my husband and I sampled were scrumptious! The menu also includes Gluten-free items.

One of the better eggs benedict ever, and also quite a good frittata. Once we were seated (30 minute wait, but can't really complain, it was Christmas Day), service was very friendly and quite efficient...can't complain. A bit pricey, but worth it.

A great place for breakfast - everything you could possibly want and very friendly staff. The Starbucks at the entrance is an added bonus!

Our dining there was very nice, comfortable, and delicious food. We had their breakfast both times visiting, and the servers were excellent, attentive, and very kind. The value was pretty good and the meals were very well-prepared, their presentation was nice, and delicious.

We were staying at the Pfister for a wedding and had a late breakfast at the Cafe. We were seated quickly and the wait staff was a lot of fun but professional. I had the breakfast special of strawberry waffles and my wife opted for the lunch soup special. Both were very good and reasonably priced for the quantity and... More
