    Hi,

    Just wondering what extra or what the difference is with a brunch buffet as opposed to a regular breakfast or lunch. Is it basically a breakfast and lunch combined?

    I appreciate it depends on the hotel, but is there a general rule of thumb?

    Thanks!

    Its been my experience that Brunch buffets have some of all meals (from breakfast to dinner). Breakfast i.e. Omelets made to order to crab legs (which are usually reserved for dinner). The Palms buffet Sunday Champagne Brunch, is a good example. Everything from scrambled eggs to crab legs, prime rib and mongolian beef strips, are available!! Along with Champagne and mimosas!

    BReakfast + LUNCH = BRUNCH

    Yes, it's basically breakfast and lunch combined. It's my favorite meal.

    just as Champster1 said.
    Depends on the place, more or less like a 30-40-30 combination.

    As others have said, the food selection is generally a mix.

    PLUS, don't forget this...

    Many also include all you can drink champagne, mimosas and sometimes bloody marys or other cocktails with the price.

    Breakfast buffets for a lot of casinos can have very limited options. Brunch and lunch will have pretty much all stations in play.

    Our local Horseshoe discontinued champagne on their weekend brunch buffet just a while ago. No reduction in price. (As if anyone really expected it!)

    Our local Ameristar still has champagne. Their Sunday brunch is more like a "big meal at noon" Sunday dinner. They have all of the good stuff out.

    Now some casinos capitalize on holidays, and even Sundays, doing a "Special Brunch", which has an obviously jacked-up price!

    Usually during the week a hotel will have breakfast then transition to lunch with 2 separate prices. Even then, you can usually get some lunchy type foods at the breakfast one, especially if you go shortly before the cutover.

    On weekends they often do a "champagne" brunch, which offers free sparkling wine (which I would recommend having in a mimosa since it won't be very good),and has breakfast and lunch foods. Mainly its an excuse to charge more on busy days,
