Hi all. Can anyone advise the best place for a buffet breakfast anywhere on universal property?

We're staying at HRH early December and do love a good start to the day, so any recommendations would be greatly received.

I understand that The Kitchen does a brunch but am looking for an early breakfast prior to hitting the parks - unless anyone can recommend anywhere inside the parks themselves.

Huge thanks in advance.

Most of the onsite hotels have at least one full-service restaurant that offers a daily breakfast buffet, including The Kitchen.

Here are the menus from Universal's website:

The Kitchen at Hard Rock Hotel - https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/the-kitchen/breakfast-buffet-menu.html
Trattoria del Porto at Portofino Bay - https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/trattoria-del-porto/breakfast-menu.html
Amatista at Sapphire Falls - https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/amatista-cookhouse/breakfast-menu.html
Islands Dining Room at Royal Pacific - https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/islands-dining-room/breakfast-menu.html

I can't tell you which one is the best as I have not tried any of them. There are not really any full-service "breakfast" places in the parks - but you can get breakfast sandwiches, pastries, etc. at a few spots.

Can thoroughly recommend Amatista and Islands Buffet breakfast......both are incredible.

Also consider while you`re there the Grinch character breakfast will be on in the park. Always gets good reviews.

    I have stayed at both RP and HR hotels
    They both have an excellent breakfast buffet besides menu ordering

    You can’t go wrong with either one

    Last there mid October

    The Kitchen at Hard Rock Hotel has the best breakfast buffet, no contest IMO. I'm not sure what or when they consider to be brunch, but every time we have eaten there, its never busy and they have every breakfast item you could want. We've been about 3 or 4 times now, and its been great every time!

    Thank you. I've booked the buffet at 7am for our first morning before hitting the parks, $25 each and the choice on offer looks fantastic.

    Was not impressed with buffets at Islands this year or Trattoria last year. The Tahitian French Toast a l'Orange off the a la carte menu at Islands is amazing if you like French toast, though.
