We got here early Saturday morning so we were the only couple eating at the time. The omelettes and hash browns were great. Would eat here again. Would like to do the Sunday brunch one day.

This is the Desoto House Breakfast area, although you don't have to stay there to have a wonderful, filling meal. They offer a wide variety of breakfast options and the price is within reason. The food is fresh and the staff is courteous.

I believe it is a brunch buffet. They had several stations and items warming with chaffing stations. We didn't eat the buffet but had other meals like made to order breakfast. Food was all very good. 😊
