Brunch at the Hotel del Coronado

by Sally Bernstein

If you find yourself near San Diego, California on a Sunday, there is an experience not to be missed. The award-winning Sunday Brunch buffet at The Del offers a show stopping array of foods including breakfast, brunch and lunch items. Hundreds of foods, both hot and cold, are offered. There is an omelet station, roasted meats, an assortment of salads, seafood, breads and multiple tables of desserts. The 9 a.m.-2 p.m. event has a large following but because guests are seated in several dining rooms, hundreds of people can be accommodated at the same time.

Brunch is held in the world-famous Crown Room, which rivals the imagination. Whimsical crown shaped chandeliers, designed by Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum, drop from glowing sugar-pine ceiling. Spacious windows circling the room offer some of California's most radiant views.
See why the splendor of the Crown Room was chosen as the first state dinner held outside the White House and as a setting for many Hollywood films.

Hotel del Coronado, situated along 28 oceanfront acres, is an elegant example of Victorian architecture and is considered one of America's most beautiful resorts. The Del completed a $55 million restoration in 2001, which has resulted in brand new oceanfront dining, redesigned and air conditioned Victorian rooms, a new bar and retail venues. A grand lawn now reconnects the beach and ocean to the Victorian Building. But the Crown Room, home to the brunch, has changed little in many years.

Voted "Best Hotel Dining" by the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Hotel del Coronado boasts a talented culinary team of over 100 culinary associates headed by Executive Chef Greg Ische. Offering classic, California coastal, casual and the award-winning Sunday Brunch, the resort provides a wide variety of dining alternatives.

The Del also received top honors in the San Diego Magazine's annual "Best Dining Guide" in August, 2005 for "best Sunday brunch."
