The Cafe at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead
When Sunday brunch costs $75 per person, it’s best to arrive ravenous.
The Cafe at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, offers myriad food stations, including seafood, prime rib and omelet. There’s row upon row of breakfast pastries and sugary delights, including croissants, pastel-colored macarons and cheesecakes.
Waffles, which are almost as big as a dinner plate, are customized twice: first with fruit toppings of choice and, second, with the Ritz-Carlton logo in the center.
Drinks are unlimited, but curb your enthusiasm; alcohol is excluded from the Sunday brunch menu, so you’ll have to quench your thirst with coffee, tea and an assortment of juices.
Patrons can purchase unlimited champagne and specialty cocktails like mimosas, Bellinis and more for $15 at the Bubble Bar from 12:30-2 p.m.
While the food is very good, you’re really paying for ambiance — stately décor, ornate drapes and leather armchairs so comfortable that time flies by as you pile your plate high again (since the Sunday brunch is all-you-can eat). Babies and tots eat for free, but each child ages 5 to 12 is an additional $36.
3434 Peachtree Road N.E., Atlanta. 404-240-7035, ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/georgia/buckhead/dining. Brunch: 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Sundays.
