The Summit’s buffet is certainly not fancy looking, but we appreciated the international items, particularly at breakfast.
The Waterfall Café offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets. As so many other buffet venues, it looks more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. If you’re in a hurry to eat something before you hit the pool, this is the perfect choice. Romantic it is not. Manned stations provide a huge choice of international dishes. Smaller stations with coffee, juices, and hot water are strategically positioned throughout the room.
Breakfast at the Waterfall Café includes some great international dishes, like English blood sausage, Russian blintz, and crepes. Of course, there are plenty of American breakfast choices too, like pancakes, bacon, eggs, and French toast. We also enjoyed an eggs benedict platter that featured international spins on the preparation, like the German version with sausage instead of ham.
A few healthier options, including cereals, yogurt, and fruits are also available.
Lunch and dinner are much the same at the Waterfall Cafe. There’s always pizza, pasta, a carving station, bread, and salads. For dinner the Summit also offers sushi, but only a couple of rolls. As the buffet seems to pride itself on international cuisine, we were able to find some delicious Indian food.
The wine list here is not very long. The Waterfall only offers wines by the glass, including Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Cabernet, Chianti, and Pinot Noir. Prices start at $5.50 for a glass of wine.
