Sipped on Strawberry Banana Smoothie Shooter Samples (I think I just invented a new tongue twister).

I really wanted french toast or pancakes, but decided to skip on the sugar since there will be a dessert buffet at the wedding tonight. The $100 Lobster Frittata did catch my eye, but after my $100 egg roll experience, I knew better.

Ordered their James Beard Award Winning Potato Pancake…

Sadly, my dish was disappointing.

The hotel itself was lovely, and so were the little touches (like these Candied Oranges presented with the bill) but with the heat, abundance of flies (and birds hopping onto the patio to eat waffles), plus slow service, I feel the experience wasn’t worth the price.

    Aw, bummer! I think it’s gone downhill since i first went a year ago…I just went back there last weekend and was also disappointed. And the birds were out of control, stealing bacon from the table! Too bad, because I love that outdoor space and the hotel.
