Quality weekday breakfast buffet?

Hubby and I will be celebrating our anniversary on Thursday and want to have our special meal during the day while our daughter is in preschool. I was originally thinking of lunch somewhere, but then I thought about a breakfast buffet at a nice hotel. The reason for this is twofold...the preschooler is allergic to eggs, nuts and cinnamon, so that pretty much eliminates us ever going out for breakfast, so this would really be a treat for us and while on our honeymoon at the Ritz Carlton on Maui, we had their amazing breakfast buffet daily and we still talk about it, so it would be a nice trip down memory lane.

I see that the Ritz in Pentagon City has a breakfast buffet and I'm curious if anyone has been or has any other recommendations. I know it's not the most romantic setting, but it would allow us to have the rest of the day to take a drive or go to a museum or something (we are taking day off work). We live in Arlington, so anywhere from Fairfax to DC would be fine.

Suggestions of good non-hotel/non-buffet breakfast spots also welcome.

Thanks
