The main banquet space at the Equinox opens for breakfast daily. The room itself is beautiful, and on a snowy day, try hard to get a window seat for a gorgeous view. The continental breakfast is far above your typical baked goods and yogurt. The smoked salmon, meats, and cheese is included, and so is a carafe of chocolate banana... More

We stayed at the new Kimpon, but wanted to check out the Equinox so we tried brunch. The main dining room is a beautiful setting, especially with the morning sun. However, it's not nearly as grand as some other historic hotels at the same level such as the Omni Mt. Washington or The Hotel Hershey. Service was fine but underwhelming.... More

Nice choice available for breakfast/brunch. You could order a la carte, continental only or full buffet. We went with the full buffet but only made one trip. The made to order omelets were good along with the waffles. My husband loved the fresh salmon. I would say the only thing needing improvement was some kind of music should be playing.... More

We loved The Colonnade - from the amazing variety for Sunday Brunch to the stellar service for which the property is known. Our made-to-order omelets were perfect, the Belgian waffles were delicious and I can't recall when I last enjoyed a cheese blintz so much! The weekday buffet is a bit "toned down," but none-the-less delicious and a good value... More

A very nice Vermont breakfast buffet. The price might be few dollars higher than else where it's worth it for breakfast in a beautiful room, at a wonderful resort( the Equinox), a beautiful town, in a gorgeous state! It's not the largest buffet, but everything is fresh, savory, and served in the Colonade room....worth it. Small thing that you'll notice,... More

The food selections on their breakfast buffet is amazing. The quality of the food comes through with every bite. They manage to have perfectly cooked scrambled eggs on the buffet, which is difficult. The sausages are made specially for them and are absolutely delicious. The granola is made in-house and is packed with nuts and fruits. I wish they sold... More

You can order from the menu or take advantage of the grand buffet for breakfast. Definitely save room for the apple cider donuts!

The menu was varied and the food was outstanding. As importantly, the kitchen readily accommodated dietary-restrictions. The staff was exceptional.
