Instead of going to a usual coffee joint, fancy it up with gourmet crafted espresso beverages and great and heathy meals-to-go!

Menu offered every coffee drink and several smoothie choices along with food. I ordered the curry chicken wrap. It was outstanding. Nice fireplace too.

Great idea for an hotel facility - a gift shop / coffee bar / lunch place where you can get everything from a breakfast muffin to a banana to a bottle of wine to a quinoa bowl ordered and put on your room bill. All with friendly and helpful staff to boot.

Though a bit on the pricy side, this is a very nice spot for coffee, tea, salads and treats. It is also a nice place to watch the game or sit by the fire.

Good food and much better prices than the other restaurants at the hotel. I suggest you get food and drinks from here and then go outside and sit by the grass and eat your food and enjoy the view.

Didn't love it here. The cookies were average and the mini red velvet cake I bought was stale. The iced tea was good.

Paid $40 for a sandwich, fruit and dessert. Nothing was particularly good. For these prices I expect something special. Get out of the hotel and try the deli/bakery just outside. Don't waste your time here.

Being in the Ritz you expect it to be expensive, but I had a pretty standard salad with chicken on it, and a diet coke. It cost me $28. I was shocked. It was average tasting, but for $28, I would never eat it again.

Located at the busiest corner in the hotel, this 'cafeteria' has a variety of ways to fill up and to only spend a tidy sum vs. a fortune for breakfast...... Oatmeal was twelve bucks, but you're at the Ritz, and it came with fresh fruit atop a generous serving.... other offerings were usually cold and not prepared on site but... More
