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

We ate breakfast here several times. The burritos. Acai bowls, and tea were great! It was not super fast, and the lines were long, but it was great quality. We took our food out to the rooftop bar. That made for a perfect breakfast!

Ordered two drinks and a breakfast sandwich here. Sandwich was suprisingly very good. The drinks weren't bad either. Convenient place for things you left behind but cheaper to go to the CVS a mile away.

Highly recommend over other fast food and a good replacement for traditional dining at the Ritz Laguna Nigel. I tried Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner items and snacks and coffees. Everything seemed to be really good and a much higher quality that expected. Kudos to The Ritz Laguna Nigel for having a great alternative to a regular sit down restaurant. Excellent... More

Hotel is sophisticated, and view is gorgeous! Seated at a table inside overlooking the cliff to beach below, truly more my liking! Elegant hotel with beautiful furnishings and flowers in lobby, create soothing environment. Food was served hot and tasty! Will return!
