Mission Inn Sunday Brunch



Los Angeles has no shortage of great places to dine, but there are also many great options outside of Los Angeles in surrounding areas, which include the Inland Empire and Orange County.

The Mission Inn is one of those places that is best described as out of the ordinary. Located 60 miles east of Los Angeles in Riverside, a quiet community in the Inland Empire The Mission Inn is one of Riverside's best kept secrets. 

My foodie friends often joke that Riverside is a culinary wasteland, but there are some hidden gems in Riverside with great food. The Mission Inn is one of those places.  The ambiance in and of itself is breathtaking and the food is the cherry on top.  The beautiful courtyard will make you feel as if you are in Europe and the beautiful dining room is warm and cozy. 

The Sunday Brunch Buffet is a dazzling display of fresh salads, fruits, made to order breakfast staples such as omelets and waffles and carving stations with roast beef and ham. There are also several delicious hot pastas and potato dishes to satisfy those carb cravings we all have. Some of the hot choices  were: Ravioli, Linguine, Pasta Alfred, Mashed Potatoes, Scalloped Potatoes, Potatoes Au Gratin and Breakfast Potatoes. There was also lots of seafood options and plenty of freshly baked breads. 

When I saw the dessert display, I could not see anything else after that. The dessert selection offers something special no matter what your dessert preference. For the chocoholic, the chocolate fountain does not disappoint, if you prefer simple desserts, there are plenty of gourmet cookies and if you love complete decadence, this is your playground! Cheeecake, Tira Misu and a unique White Chocolate Tira Misu along with a variety of tarts and cakes.

My brunch experience ended on a sweet note:-)  This is definitely a brunch worth checking out and at $40.00 per person, it is a great value. You can walk the grounds or just sit and relax and take in the scenery after enjoying your meal.
