Sunday Brunch - Breakers vs. Biltmore

For Thanksgiving, my husband and I are planning an outing with my parents and his parents. I thought either the Breakers ($85) or the Biltmore ($65) would be a nice place to celebrate an special adult-only holiday. I'd prefer to go to the Breakers because we live in Miami and could make a golf or sight-seeing outing out of heading up to WPB. BUT $85 is about $60 more than I think I can eat. Is this really worth it? Is the Biltmore as nice and at least priced for this planet?

  1. I've never had brunch at the Breakers, but the Biltmore brunch is just about the best meal I've ever had. Completely over-the-top decadent, and well worth the price if you come hungry, stay for a while, and drink enough mimosas.

    1. Last time I was at the biltmore over a year ago the food was not great.

      1. I would say yes, the Biltmore is worth the high price. The food is so varied with lots of surprises....and it's just such a nice special occasion daytime place to go. The only thing that I was disappointed in were the desserts which were just OK and not as varied. But the ambiance was great....nice live lowkey Latin guitar music going on....and the 3 tall iced Cuban coffees with condensed milk that I had were alone worth $65!

        1. The best part of brunch at the Biltmore is walking around the grounds after you eat. . .and boy, you will eat, and it will be beautiful. :-)
