Hostess did not honor our reservation to be seated outside. When we asked to be seated at a free window table we were told it was reserved, and seated at the back of the restaurant. The entire duration of our meal the table by the window was empty. Our waitress was great and food was good. We spoke with the manger before we left and he was understanding.

Allen is the man. Went across the resort to get my wife a chocolate cappuccino. Great buffet for the price! Went all three days during our stay and would definitely recommend!

Lovely view of the beach and ocean. Nice dining room though it is, in my opinion, getting a bit dated. Buffet has most everything on the menu but is at the far north end of the dining room ( a bit of a walk if you are at the south end, outside or mobility challenged). We could not sit outside as it was a very windy and cool day. Waiting for an omelet when crowded can be frustrating to those with limited patience.

All-in-all, food was good, scenery was beautiful and the cinnamon rolls are outstanding.

We had Joseph for our waiter, friendly, personable, efficient. He was attentive without being intrusive and made the dining experience extremely pleasant. The buffet was very good , my only disappointment was that there was no roast beef, which I was aware of by reviewing the menu but still missed. We went at 11am and will be there again next year.

Buffet was extremely messy with spilled food everywhere. Most dishes were empty or little food in them. No control over kids and adults at buffet, people were touching food with there hands and leaving it on the buffet. Very unsanitary.. I will never come back and will not recommend it to anyone. Our server was very kind that’s about it.

Really wonderful buffet and Christina, our server, did an excellent job helping make our meal special. Best breakfast I have had in a long time and it was definitely worth the effort of dealing with the Omni security. If coming from off the Omni property, reservations are required

Breakfast buffet was good and plentiful. A little expensive but typical for a resort. Paper straws great but not with thick smoothie. Our waitress was extremely slow, pleasant but slow

The experience was great. We loved the omelette station, biscuits, fruit preserves, and fresh squeezed orange juice machine. However, the gravy was way too salty, bacon too hard, and the cinnamon rolls were hard as well.

A poor grade for service has been given because we were uninformed how inconvenient it was to reach. Situated on an opened campus, too much walking uphill was required for this 70+ couple after recent hip surgery. After reaching the Cafe, although there was a ramp, it was every long which required us to climb up a dozen steps to reach the entrance of the restaurant.

Although there was 3 or 4 golf carts at the foot of the stairs which we were told would drive us to our car after brunch, the staff in the hotel lobby (located in another building) were too busy to assist us. So after waiting 45 minutes, we had to walk down a long wet walk after a wild thunderstorm hanging onto each other hoping to get to our car safely before the next round of storms rolled through. The staff inside the Cafe refused to help us with transportation to our car. The staff at the hotel were nonexistent.

This was our first visit to the Omni Sunrise Cafe, but it won't be our last! Their Easter Brunch was magnificent and the service was perfect. We had a table on the verandah overlooking the ocean and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Of course the endless mimosas and bloody marys didn't hurt either!

An excellent and picturesque breakfast! The setting, looking over the Atlantic, and the attentive servers made the entire meal a delight. And the food - WOW! Having freshly squeezed OJ with fresh honey (literally dripping from the comb!) were just a couple of the unique and delicious elements to this family resort breakfast. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely horrible service and not so great brunch. The food ordered off the menu took over 40 mins to arrive at table. Once arrived, eggs were ice cold, found hairs in the pancakes, and orders were incorrect. Not a fan of the brunch. Didn’t seem to have enough staff members to keep up with the influx of people.
