Champagne Brunch Suggestions

I will be staying in downtown San Diego and am interested in a champagne brunch. Any suggestions? We will not have a car, so places that are within walking distance or a quick cab ride away would be great!

  1. Cafe Chloe for Saturday/Sunday brunch downtown.

    1. A guy named Jim, a.k.a. the Brunch Master, has a web site that summarizes the champagne brunches. I don't think he is very critical, but is at least tells you what you'll get:

        Cafe Chloe would be my pick but this isn't a buffet style campagne brunch - they have champagne and mimosas but you order off a menu. Which I love.

        If the OP is looking for the buffet style wiith carving stations, made to order waffles and eggs, etc... I'd suggest the Westgate Hotel's Le Fontainebleau room.

        Or, ferry over to Coronado and rent a bike to the Hotel Del's...

          I would definitely second Le Fontainbleau for brunch. I just visited a week ago and IMHO, it beats out some of the best known Vegas brunches. The pastry chef is more than skilled... try their pain au chocolate.

            I second the Le Fontainebleau room at the Westgate.
            The Grant Grill at the US Grant Hotel is great for brunch (off the menu) but champagne is not included.
            Jsix at Hotel Solamar too.

              Third for the Le Fontainbleau for brunch. Pricey but a lot of bang for the buck

        2. You could always do a brunch cruise on the Hornblower. That way you get a champagne brunch and a nice watery view of the city.

          1. Shouldn't this thread be in the Great Lakes Forum?

            Oh...that's a CHAMPAIGN brunch. Sorry...

              The Catamaran Hotel in PB has a pretty great Champagne Sunday Brunch. Great location as well.
