The Westgate Hotel Sunday Brunch Buffet

Sorry for the delayed posts as of late.  We’re going through a few changes at the moment.  In the meantime, I’m going to try to give you some new content which will be primarily made up of pictures and not too many words… which is probably okay, because I know you’re here to eat with your eyes, right!?  🙂

Anyhow, here’s a long overdue post that’s been in the hopper, but you really need to know about.  It’s probably the best brunch buffet in San Diego I know of!

So this post is way overdue!  However, I hope it’ll be worth the wait.  You see, they have a fabulous Sunday brunch that was super memorable.

Savory Sensations


A complete caviar station with blinis!


Nigiri sushi to order.



Beautiful colors from all that juicy fruit.


Cheese anyone?


Individual benedicts… mmmmm.




The yellowtail was divine!


Prime rib with a generous topping of jus!


Jorgina and I getting ready to dig in.




Fresh squeezed OJ and champagne added if you like mimosas!


Dessert Time



Crepe station – Butter and brown sugar reduction + fresh berries = yes!



Beautiful chocolate fountain.






AWESOME ICE CREAM BAR.  Save room for this one.



Coffee and donuts with Mexican chocolate sauce.  And, macaroons too!



More dessert because there wasn’t already enough!


I really love coming here to the Westgate for Sunday brunch.  It’s really a beautiful setup and matched equally with the quality of the delicious bites at every corner.

The service was wonderful and we felt well taken care of.  There was even a live piano player in the main dining room for an added layer of decadence.

It’s not something we do often, but it was absolutely perfect for celebrating our anniversary.

This link will take you to their Sunday Brunch menu.  Reservations are definitely recommended and don’t wear your flip flops!

    1. Yes Lynn, it could very well be a dessert buffet alone! But, I’m glad not. There are far too many other delicious items to feast upon while you’re there…mmmmmmm.
