TGIF for Breakfast
Courtyard by Marriott, Indianapolis, IN
Review by Diana, SuSu, MaceVindaloo, Csillag, Bunchbox
There were several options for breakfast, all buffets. There was a continental, or a steam table, or a "courtyard breakfast" which included an omelette station and a Belgian waffle station. There were also pastries and danishes (which were pronounced "fresh and good," inciting one of us to eat 3 or 4 at a time), cereals, oatmeal, a buffet of cut fruit, bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs (made by the omelette guy when he wasn't busy), breakfast potatoes, and biscuits and gravy. Everything was at the right temperature, and generally quite good. The exception was the oatmeal, which was too thick and sticky, but one of us is addicted to the stuff and ate it anyway.
The decor of the place was typical of the franchise, but had some odd "olde fashioned ads" for things like cigars and embalming fluid and undertaker services. Very odd and kind of creepy, but we guess it's normally a sort of bar and grill, not a family breakfast place?
But the coffee was good, the food was good, and it was a substantial way to start the day. It's also good when you have several hearty eaters in the group who insist on hot breakfasts, because there is no limit to how often you can partake in the various buffets. Other guests included kids who seemed overjoyed and determined to make their own waffles.
Overall, a good breakfast experience, though we felt it had nothing to do with the TGIF franchise.
