While we have served an award-winning buffet brunch for years, last Sunday we started our new-style Sunday Jazz Brunch. We are now serving your Sunday Brunch, rather than offering it buffet-style. This has allowed us to accomplish several important things.

The first is that we were able to substantially lower the price, which is a huge benefit to you, dear guest. The new brunch starts at $16.95 per person, for three courses plus warm, freshly baked coffee cake, and the more expensive selections are only $19.95 per person for the three courses.

The second is that with this revised style, we are being more "green" because we are not wasting so many of our precious natural resources. In order to keep a buffet brunch looking fresh for each guest, we have to replace the food fairly often. This means a lot of wasted food, because once it has been set out on display, discarding it is our only option. Unfortunately even the local food banks cannot take food after it has sat on a buffet table. In addition, the canned fuel needed to keep the foods hot is certainly not great for the environment, and it makes our air conditioning have to work even harder to keep the dining room cool -- all the way around doing a buffet is a big waste of resources.

We hope you will try out this new style, as we believe it is a big improvement to our previous brunch. We still have great live entertainment, and the best servers in Salem.
