Did you know that The Broadmoor has one of the top rated Sunday Brunches in the United States. Whether you're a hotel guest or one of our local patrons, this is sure to please even the most finicky eater.
A brunch buffet wouldn’t be complete without the omelet and waffle stations, and if you add in the seafood buffet, fruit buffet and quite the dessert spread (because I know after everything you haven’t had enough sweets), you’ve really got something special. Set aside all other meals for the day, you’re going to want to dig in for a long as you can handle!
Susan Krokidis is the face of Lake Terrace Dining room as Front-of-the-House manager. Though she doesn't like to be photographed, try to spot her in one of our photos on the blog! She got a head start on The Broadmoor’s hospitality – her parents owned a restaurant in Chicago while she was growing up. They had their regulars and were always nurturing their relationships with any customer that walked through the door.
Susan may run the breakfast realm here at the hotel, but her favorite foods range from Greek to grilled salmon. But if you’re thinking variety – you could probably go and get something of the sort from the brunch itself!
She loves the problem solving that comes with running a restaurant. That could mean from those of us that are grumpy in the morning (*hand slowly raising*) to running out of a regular guest’s favorite entrée. She’s had her fair share of experience to deal with whatever comes her way.
Running all things banquets, Chef de Cuisine Mark Lefebvre gets all food out the door, with the help of his culinary team, of course. Cooking since the age of 15, his aspirations became a reality when he attended The Culinary Institute in Hyde Park, New York. He’s worked at the best of the best, eventually bringing him here to The Broadmoor. Previously he’s been at the Biltmore in North Carolina and The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin.
We all love our grandmother’s cooking, don't we? I, personally, have memories of my grandma's raviolis - his earliest food memory is of his grandmother’s homemade cinnamon rolls. Even now, his favorite pastry at Sunday Brunch are the sticky rolls. Can’t argue with that! But on a day off, he prefers some good fried chicken, which he claims is hard to find if you’re not in the South. If fried chicken isn’t on the menu, it’s mashed potatoes, meatloaf and a whiskey to top it off.
Even during the week, without the huge Sunday Brunch, be sure to stop by Lake Terrace Dining Room for their breakfast buffet and a view!
