Latest Falling Water Cafe news and reviews

JM and Nichole ate the breakfast buffet.
The buffet was $14/person, plus tip.
JM gave Falling Water Cafe a C+; Nichole gave Falling Water Cafe a C (see our grading rubric).

So, the Madison Marriott West has a brunch buffet. The space is beautiful and airy, a huge central courtyard with a fountain and all. The staff is great, but the $14 felt a little much, and almost all the actual food suffered from dryness.

There was a made-to-order omelet counter, Greek yogurt, and waffles. There was not much appealing pastry, just some sad donuts. The fruit was good looking, but far from ripe. Also on offer were bagels and lox with red onion and capers, which made us wonder where else in Madison, other than actual bagel stores, we could get bagels and lox.

If you are staying at the Marriott, Falling Water is an OK choice. But also in the area within quick strolling distance are Sprecher's and the interesting Dryhootch. Just south of Old Sauk to both east and west are a bunch of unique local places to explore: Asia Express, Oliva and Swagat for a truly pan-Asian experience, downtown Middleton for anything else. Even Greenway Station has more excitement and you could WALK there!
