My husband and I had breakfast there and really enjoyed our meal. We booked ahead on open table because reservations is a must it’s super busy. We both chose to eat of the menu as we both didn’t want buffet. The coffee was sting and yummy and the French toast was fantastic my husband ordered the eggs Benedict with salmons day he said it was great.

I would definitely go back... ask for a window seat the view was lovely!!!

We had breakfast buffet here. Very nice buffet. Lots of options including maple soaked bacon chunks. Yummy and decadent. For being at the chateau which can get crazy this was actually nice and peaceful.

Not an entirely traditional High Tea. Service was slow and not very attentive. Paper napkins detract from the place setting.

If you're looking for thoughtful place with no fuss breakfast options that you've come to rely on, head here. We were 6 with a baby in tow. The staff made it a point to interact with the children. Fairmont knows what good service is.

Dined here for the buffet and was not impressed by the food quality. The bacon was so dry and the waffles were tough like jerky. It was nice to be able to have omelettes made to order but otherwise the buffet did not meet expectations. There was a large variety of items warm and cold. Not worth the price though.

Spent a week in Canada in three different cities/hotels. Place Dufferin can not be beat for the ambiance and view and the food and service were exceptional. The breakfast of vegetable eggs Benedict was the best of the week.

The service was great and friendly. I’m a big foodie and travel a lot. The Brunch & Breakfast was wonderful. Fresh and delicious. We ate there everyday. Everyone was so nice and helpful. One of the best Fairmont’s I’ve been to. My 60th bday was very special there. So are the other restaurants and bars at the hotel.

For the price that I paid, the selection of the food wasn't that great. I have had better breakfast buffets. Would not recommend for the food wise. Other than food the ambiance and service was pretty good.

Breakfast was wonderful, hot and fresh. Was very fortunate to get a reservation on Open Table the night before. The staff was very efficient and professional with very good knowledge of menu and buffet offerings. The hot coffee was refreshed frequently and we lingered there much longer than we should have. We were so comfortable and full.
We did not opt for the buffet and we're very happy with our choice of fresh OJ, fresh fruit plate and French Toast for hubby and Eggs Benedict for me.
The sweeping views of The St Lawrence River were magnificent. We could actually see our Cruise Ship from our table!

We went to brunch at 10 am. The bacon was inedible, unable to bite through it or chew. The eggs were just eggs. The potatoes were dried out and stale. So very disappointed as this was a birthday gift and it was extremely expensive for inedible food. Would not recommend.

Place Dufferin is situated within the spectacular Chateau Frontenac/Fairmont Hotel. They are now open for breakfast only till 11:30. We wanted a Sunday Brunch thinking they would serve wine/alcohol. They only offer Mimosas no other alcohol. However the choice, when you choose the full Buffet ( $32.95 ) is huge an varied. Hot and cold. Excellent place save for the alcohol. The Hotel has another restaurant for a full Brunch with full Bar service. The choices are even more staggering ( $59.95 ).
