The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

You know I have a very bad reputation - Avery Tolar

The Cayman Islands can thank John Grisham for their bad reputation. Based on the adventures of Avery, Mitch and Abby, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Caymans is the go-to place for money laundering, over-billing and extra-marital hanky panky. But it's also quite the beach resort. And for breakfast by the beach, it doesn't get much better than the buffet at the Ritz, Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, Tel +1 (345) 943-9000.

beach buffet

As a general rule, hotel breakfast buffets are things best avoided. Like stingrays. But every rule has exceptions. And the Ritz buffet is one of them. Everything was good. Perky eggs benny. Spicy jerk potatoes. Thick and spongy slabs of french toast. Juicy caramelized banana. Fresh waffles. Custom-built omelettes. Fresh fruit. Local specialties like fish escoveitch. And a very delicious mushroom quiche.

Hi Jamie:
Just seeing the picture made me hungry for eggs!
We are fortunate to spend alot of time in Grand Cayman, and do enjoy the Ritz from time to time, particularly their brunch on Sundays.
For those wanting to spend less, across from the street from the Westin is Eats - they have a great breakfast menu - it's crowded all the time.
Guess I know where I am going next time I get off the plane!

Wow, that looks so good!, all it's missing is a side dish of waffles, I don't know why you say avoid hotel breakfast buffet's, my experience with hotel breakfast buffet's has always been pleasant, especially the one's with the omelette stations.

All they have to do is just type the voucher code (which will be provided upon response to this email) at the check out.

I love cod fillets but have never tried them together, much less had fish for breakfast. This also looks delicious.

appetizing post! I don’t like perky eggs benny, spicy jerk potatoes, but surely I like fresh fruit and I agree with you we must avoid the breakfast and buffet at hotels, rather I depends on other light things. I mean it, I don’t know much about cayman cuisine but seem to be worth to taste, we are a group of friend leaving for cayman soon, do u have some suggestion on grand cayman restaurants, which r value for money?
