The best breakfast buffet I've been to is the Sunday brunch at Scarpetta at the Montage Beverly Hills. Quality is top notch - everything is cooked in small batches and is constantly refreshed. They have typical breakfast stuff, but also cold seafood, fresh pasta, a carving station, and an amazing cheese table from Beverly Hills Cheese. It's $58/person, so more of a special occasion place, but it's the best representation of a Vegas-style buffet in the area.
I've also heard they do a brunch buffet at the Universal Hilton, but I haven't been.

Highly recommend the Brunch at Scarpetta Beverly Hills.
