Inn of the Seventh ray? campanile? Akira? Sienna cafe? Others?

What's the best?

        Thanks. I didn't recall one but thought maybe they had added one since the last time we went for brunch, (which is good - as opposed to their dinners).

    1. The Four Seasons....yummmmmmmm

      1. I think that that the Brunch at the Ritz Carlton in Pasadena, the old Huntington Hotel is the best in the area. But I have never been to any in LA either.

        1. Four Seasons gets my vote too.

              Yes, that's the one. They do tons of press junkets there on the weekend, so you might find a celebrity or two in the lobby or while you are waiting for your car from the valet. So if that floats your boat, it's a fun reason to go. But even without that, its a very complete brunch with nice rooms to dine in. It's pricey though. I think last time we were there (2-3 years ago) it was about $65 a person.

              One of the problems I find personally with buffets, especially expensive ones, is that I don't feel like I'm getting my moneys worth since I can't eat $65 worth of food. I don't do buffets anymore as there are so many nice places to go where you can have a nice meal for about $25-$30 per person and it's a more pleasant experience and better value. Jar, Campanile, Cafe Del Rey, Pacific Dining Car are a few of my non-buffet favorites.

              But since you asked about buffets specifically, do I recommend the Four Seasons in BH over others I've been to.


            Trump's national golf club used to have a magnificent brunch. here is the website...You will need to call to find out what is on the buffet. The setting is lovely.
