On the first morning of our Wyoming vacation we ate at the breakfast buffet at Alpenhof Lodge. This was a complimentary breakfast as a result of Hotwire selling us a room reservation at Alpenhof Lodge when they did not actually have any vacancies. You can read more about that part of the trip by clicking here.
The breakfast buffet was very good. Had it come at the end of our Wyoming vacation rather than at the beginning, I would have considered it to be fantastic. Most of our breakfasts in Yellowstone and Grand Teton were disappointing, but the breakfast buffet at Alpenhof Lodge was impressive in terms of quality. While it seemed small at the time, it turned out to be large by comparison and exceptional in terms of quality when compared to the restaurants in the national parks.
The best part of the buffet was the real eggs used in making the scrambled eggs. Most breakfast locations we visited used the egg-ish mix that some restaurants buy in big cartons, which generally make either a runny mess or a dry crumble depending on the amount of water mixed into it. At Aloenhof, the texture of the scrambled eggs on the buffet indicated that these were real eggs that someone had cracked open that morning.
Coffee was brought to our table and our daughter was given a cup of hot chocolate that looked really good. Our son opted for apple juice, which he then poured into a coffee cup to pretend he was having coffee.
Along with the great eggs, the breakfast buffet included bacon, sausage links, a plate of various cheeses, dry cereal, fruit bowls, yogurt, bread and pastries, and good coffee. If you are staying at the Alpenhof Lodge, there is no reason to go anywhere else for a good breakfast. I do not know know the price since ours was complimentary, but it was one of the best breakfasts of our trip.
