As far as buffets go, you’ll be hard pressed to find an array of dishes so well conceived and frequently refreshed as the morning offerings at Hotel Arts. Look under the lids of the Le Creuset Mini Cocottes for the chef’s delicious daily surprise, which may include duck confit cassoulet with poached eggs. -Dan Clapson

Make it a family affair and enjoy the vast variety of dishes – including carving stations, seafood, salads and decadent desserts – that this 100-year-old hotel serves up every Sunday morning. As God is my witness, you’ll never be hungry again – or, at least, for the rest of the day. -D.C.
Forget everything you think you know about breakfasting at a large hotel-chain restaurant because Thomsons at the Hyatt, with its focus on fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, offers up inventive, flavourful and premium quality dishes normally reserved for the most food-forward boutique hotels. -D.C.
