The Cafe is in the lobby of the Hilton City Center hotel and is a good place to have breakfast. Our server was helpful and friendly, the food was good, and the price was good for hotel fare.

If you don't want the buffet they also have an excellent menu. Prices are reasonable. Service was excellent, food was excellent. Very nice atmosphere here, not very loud easy to carry on a conversation with friends.

Ate at the Cafe and had the breakfast buffet, which was delicious. Food was hot and fresh and there was a large variety of choices. Service was a bit slow.

We were looking for a quick but tasty breakfast so we opted for the buffet. The selection was great and the omelet station was excellent! The food was well prepared not like some buffets. The price, $17.00, was more than worth it. Recommend to all.

Nice cafe with a very good breakfast menu and a fairly large buffet with a lot of options. A bit pricey for what you get, but very convenient if you are in the hotel. The food was good and they are generous with the coffee,...More

This is a GREAT breakfast bar! It is a little pricey at $17pp, but to be in a hotel of this caliber makes things okay. The selection is plenty, and the taste was REALLY great! Did I mention they will make you an omelette, pancakes,...More
