Things like the green tea were pretty standard. I didn't like the flourless chocolate cake here - I've had far better ones. Sandwich was ok - nothing exceptional.

unusual to have an in-house coffee shop with snacks. Open at 0600 which is great. freshly made cappuccino beats room service coffee any time!

Good for a quick bite, but ran out of food by mid afternoon. Conference crowd wiped it out, may be better ff down the hall at the bar

Too many luxury resorts think this is beneath them - luckily one has realized its guests are not all 80 years old and happy with overpriced, cold room service coffee. This Market Place made my wife and I so happy as one of our hesitations about a luxury resort is having to leave every morning to get coffee and pastries to start our day (or worse calling room service and being frustrated to start the day).

Selection was solid and the service was consistently cheerful - clearly they put something in the water because it shouldn't be possible to be that smiley and happy all the time! But it made for a nice experience. We must have used this place 3-4 times each day so clearly it was an important part of our experience.

Good place to pick up a light breakfast and taste the Ritz' chefs baked goods. Easy access.
