The old San Francisco of women in white gloves and men in fedoras lives on in the extravagant Sunday buffet brunch ($75) in the Garden Court of the historic Palace Hotel. The choices seem endless, with everything from pancakes, omelets, and salads to roast beef, sushi, dim sum, and raw oysters available. The buffet is short on culinary innovation here, but delivers a bountiful selection and a classic atmosphere. Appetites are heightened by the great live jazz that fills
the stunning space, with its stained-glass ceiling, towering Ionic columns, and crystal chandeliers. If you can't make it to the Palace for Sunday brunch, try the Saturday-afternoon high tea.

The Sunday Jazz Brunch is elegant and delicious! There are several stations situated around the magnificent room. Sushi, tempura, traditional breakfast, carving stations, raw bar, salads, deserts, and omlettes and crepes to order are all tempting. As you sit you are treated to champagne and orange juice. The jazz music is wonderful and relaxing. Plan on spending a couple of hours eating and taking in the atmosphere. The wait staff was prompt
and curtious. A nice way to spend Sunday morning.

Sunday brunch is a real event here. The room looks so beautiful with bright daylight shining through the skylights. Don't miss the Maxfield Parrish print in the Pied Piper bar, just down the corridor from the Garden Court.
