SUNDAY BRUNCH IN CARLSBAD

Coming from the East Coast and looking for a Sunday Brunch Buffet for 5 people on Sept 18in or near Carlsbad. Bellefleur looked good online, but I've tried to call several times and there's no answer. Have they closed up? I did do some research after the fact and read a lot of bad reviews. How about the Ocean House or Park Hyatt Aviar? We'd like to stick close to Carlsbad but will travel to SD if it's worth it. I've heard that the brunch at the Hotel Del is pretty nice. I've been to Humphrey's and it didn't blow me away.

If anyone is familiar with the Sunday Brunch at Spagettini in Seal Beach, you'll know what I'm looking for.

    I had brunch at the Canyons at The Crossings golf course in Carlsbad about a year ago. Not a super huge, extensive menu (like what you'd get at Spaghettini), but the items they did have were nice, and the view was lovely. It had been between there and Bellefleur when we were making our selection, and we were happy with our decision.

      Thanks for all of your input. We just got our power back from hurricane Irene so I know what you're going through. Hopefully, power has been restored by now. The Canyons at The Crossings golf course looks like a winner. I'll let you know how we make out.

      Thanks to all my fellow hounds.

      Aviara if it is still similar to what it was when the Four Seasons ran the resort, it is the best of the bunch by a mile. Bellefleur is fine, decent, but wont blow you away. Nice outlet mall to walk around in afterwards, if thats your thing. Ocean House ehhh.

        Huge power outage today from Carlsbad down to SD -- electricity is not expected to be restored until tomorrow. I'd try calling again Friday afternoon, or maybe this weekend..
