I came to M St. Cafe for brunch with some girlfriends. The food was amazing! We will definitely be coming back! I especially enjoyed the kitchen whipped whip cream. The service was also awesome.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The food (Sunday brunch) was great, as were the ambience and service. There was good variety of food, from meats to salads to fruit. The desserts were just the right size for sharing. Great coffee also. The server was very attentive. Highly recommended.

I love the St Paul Hotel. The food and service experience is always first rate. I just think M ST could be updated to look less like a hotel lower level. Primarily I think if the lighting were enhanched to warm up the room that would be a big plus.

We love coming here and have been for many years. 90% of the time we have no issues with staff of getting in. We have not had friendly service with the host staff a couple of times and we request our lovely waitress Florence and they said ok then we get there and end up not having her 😕 she is amazing as is many of the wait staff she just knows us well. Very friendly, menu or brunch buffet. Holidays are busy and book fast. Spring and summer weekends are weddings. Food is great for the price. Very big selection for food and desserts.

Usually so great, but this time we had a server who disappeared for 30 minutes at the end of our visit and for Father's Day the brunch was underwhelming.

Excellent service, great food! The Sunday brunch is full of delicious options. It's a buffet, but it's not the tired, bland buffet of other restaurants. A little more expensive, so it would be good for a special treat or occasion.

We went for Sunday brunch before going to an afternoon matinee. The food and service was great. We were there for two hours and weren't rushed. The website hasn't been updated so the prices were higher than expected but still worth it. We would go again.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and the food was amazing! The beef brisket is to die for and the salmon was wonderful as well. The service is top notch and location/restaurant setting is also perfect. I came here with a group for my birthday and we all agreed that we will be back to do the buffet again!

A nice value for Mother's Day brunch . Fare was standard, with a nice carving station of prime rib, as well as made-to-order omelettes. The Eggs Benedict was super mushy, but other than that, food was prepared well. The dessert bar was more vast than the salad bar, which is tough if you are on a diet- haha! Wonderful, friendly service.

It was a Mothers Day brunch/lunch and it was busy which was to be expected. The dining area did not seem crowded.
Service was buffet and the food was fantastic and selection was excellent. The serve crew was very attentive.
Over all, a very enjoyable dine out.

We had our yearly Easter brunch celebration at the M st cafe, this was the 4th or 5th year in a row. Great selection of food - we always look forward to the prime rib and desserts. The chocolate fondue is always a hit with the kids. The service is very good - appropriate for the St.Paul hotel name. Great experience.

We had the Sunday brunch. Food was good and fresh but not anything more than you would expect at a hotel of the St. Paul's quality. The real stars were the servers. They were helpful, attentive and unobtrusive at the table. The servers making the omelettes and carving the prime rib were friendly and helpful. A very good experience.

Met our son and his wife for a Sunday Brunch. The food selections were varied and very good. A cold buffet offered fresh fruit, salad, shrimp and soup. A hot buffet offered salmon, prime rib, vegetables, potatoes and waffles. Made to order omelettes were available at another station. A large selection of desserts are available at a dessert station. The food was very fresh and flavorful. This is a self-service buffet.

Our waitress was very responsive, engaging and professional.

M Street Cafe is located in the lower level of The St Paul Hotel. The table placement is a little tight, especially with customers moving around to get their food, but not as tight as many places. After 11:00 on Sunday, no menu orders are possible, only the buffet.

I have eaten at The St Paul Hotel many times and I have never been disappointed with a meal.
