Ellyngton’s in Denver, Colorado

An amazing and luxurious champagne brunch. Fantastic!

I had heard that within the historic Brown Palace that Ellyngton’s is famous for their brunch. I can understand why after having an amazing dining experience. This is truly special from the plethora of high quality buffet choices to the decadent dessert tables. And of course, the champagne! Look to Ellyngton’s to indulge yourself by enjoying the wonderful Sunday Champagne brunch.

My champagne of choice was Moet & Chandon and of course, paired with chocolate…heaven!

Location:
The restaurant is located inside The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa. Walk through the lobby and it is situated to the right of the entrance. Be sure to stop and admire the atrium area of the lobby. They do a nice afternoon tea as well. It is exquisite.

Beautiful decor! Cheers!

Menu:
The brunch is entirely buffet. However, you are able to order a specialty eggs benedict dish from your waiter. There is such a wide variety offered at the buffet that it will leave you wishing you could try it all. From the prime rib, to the fresh seafood bar, there is plenty to choose from. All is excellent quality and the food is replenished often. The dessert area is very nice. They have a chocolate fountain as well as many flavorful and beautifully decorated options. The pastry chef is amazing with the offerings and the presentation. There are three price levels for the buffet depending on the champagne that you order. The highest level being the Dom Perignon (which is only one glass at a time). My husband and I choose the Moet Chandon. It was an outstanding selection and it is bottomless.
