BUFFET DINING

 

Montecito Sequoia Buffet Dining 

 

OUR ALL-INCLUSIVE RATES INCLUDE YOUR BUFFET MEALS, SNACKS, DESSERTS & SOFT DRINKS:

Included in your room rate for your 1st night's stay is the Dinner Buffet the evening you arrive, and the Hot Breakfast Buffet the day you depart.  For each additional night that you stay with us, you will enjoy all three buffet meals - Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.  Meal times can vary, but follow the above scheduled times for each season (Fall, Winter & Spring versus Summer).

 

Our culinary team focuses on serving California-fresh meals:  including a large and varied salad bar, fresh fruit platters and whole fruit, three hot entrees (including one vegetarian option), and a hot vegetable and/or rice, a soup of the day, and a dessert to finish your meal.  

 

We offer many items 24-7 for our guests to serve themselves:  including bagels, toast, cereals, sandwich fixings (from our public-access kitchen fridge), granola bars, and other various snacks.  

 

The beverages included in your room rate are also available to guests around-the-clock.  We offer many non-alcoholic drinks from which you can choose including coffee, specialty teas, hot cocoa, flavored waters, juices, milk/almond milk, water, etc.  Should you desire a glass of wine or beer, it can be purchased from our Pine Box Bar.  We also offer soda for purchase.

 

Our culinary team changes menu items to fit the season and offers special holiday-themed meals for all major holidays.  So whether it's a little treat like chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine's Day, or a traditional Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings, our chefs will make all of your holidays at Montecito special and festive!

 

Meals during our Summer Family Camp are more extravagant too - our chefs serve special items such as a prime rib and crab leg dinner, an outdoor barbeque night, homemade bagels & lox, a wine & cheese welcome reception, and a specialty dessert night!

 

Breakfast

While our hot breakfast usually starts at 7:30 a.m., guests who want an early start to the day have 24-7 access to our cereals, toast, bagels, coffee, teas, hot cocoa, juices, milk, flavored waters, granola bars, etc., so you can get an early start on your day.  

 

Our hot breakfast offers traditional breakfast fare such as eggs, pancakes, french toast, bacon or sausage.  We usually offer hot cereal or oatmeal, an assortment of yogurts, fresh fruit, and other items for you to start your day.  During special times like holidays or summer family camp, you might be treated to homemade bagels and lox, or specialty baked goods made right here in our kitchen.

 

When we are unusually quiet and don't have a lot of guests,  you may get to enjoy omelets or waffles made-to-order, or other specialty items, due to the limited number of guests.  

 

Lunch

Our hot lunch buffet starts at Noon and goes until at least 1:00 p.m (1:30 p.m. in the busy Summer season).  In addition to the hot buffet, we usually offer a make-your-own sandwich bar, for those guests who would prefer a sandwich instead of a hot meal.  For those wanting to eat healthier, we also offer a full salad bar at lunch, fresh fruit, and a soup of the day. Want to treat yourself?  We usually offer fresh-baked cookies or some other dessert at lunchtime!  Enjoy!

 

Dinner (If you'll be arriving after dinnertime, call ahead and we'll save you a plate!)

Since most of our guests like to get an early start in the morning, our hot dinner buffet is offered in the early evening.  During the Fall, Spring & Winter Seasons, our hot dinner buffet starts at 6:00 p.m. and goes until 7:30 p.m.  In the Summer high Season, dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m.  If you will be arriving at Montecito after our dinner buffet closes, please be sure to call ahead (by 7:00 p.m. please) to our Front Desk @ 559-565-3388, press "0," and we'll make up a dinner plate for each member of your party to enjoy upon your arrival!

 

Each of our hot dinner buffets include two types of meat and/or pasta entrees, and always includes a hot vegetarian entree (quinoa, pasta, tofu dish, etc.).  We always offer our extensive salad bar at dinner, and a fresh fruit tray for our guests to enjoy (the kids love it)!  Our culinary team often makes a fresh homemade specialty bread to go along with dinner, and we ALWAYS offer a delicious dessert!

 

Special Dietary Needs or Food Allergies

Our culinary team does their very best to accommodate our guests' dietary needs and food allergies.  As mentioned above, we offer at least one hot vegetarian item during each meal, and offer a salad bar, fresh fruit, sandwich bar, etc., along with stocking soy milk and other dairy-free options.  

 

If you have a food allergy, or eat a vegan or gluten-free diet, for example, our chefs will do their best to accommodate you.  Just stop in the kitchen when you arrive and let our kitchen staff know of your dietary concerns.  

 

Those with food allergies should make sure to bring their epi-pens with them.   Parents, please assist any children with food allergies to make good choices from the buffet.  Check with our chefs if you aren't sure of ingredients in a particular dish, or if you have any questions.  

 

If you have a less typical dietary need, not listed above, please contact our front desk or reservations office ahead of your visit (we recommend a minimum of at least one week before your arrival), so we can try to make adjustments as best we can.  Please realize that we may not carry or have access to certain items that you specifically need.  If this is the case, you are free to bring any special items with you, and you can store them in our public-access commercial fridge for your use.  This includes baby formula, or other dietary-specific items (eg. specialty gluten-free snacks, tofu or non-dairy ice cream, etc.) that we may not have on hand.

 

Pine Box Bar (Alcoholic Beverages & Specialty Drinks)

Occasionally, we will host a special event that is complimentary to our guests, such as a wine-tasting or wine & cheese welcome reception.  However, outside of these special events, alcoholic beverages are not included in your room rate.  If you would like to enjoy an alcoholic beverage, we offer an assortment of wines and beers, including special local brews, and some mixed drinks at our Pine Box Bar for purchase.  We also allow guests to bring their own alcoholic beverages with them to enjoy, but we do charge a small corkage fee which includes use of our wine openers & wine glasses.  Ask the Front Desk when you arrive for more information on operating hours, fees, and pricing, for our Pine Box Bar services.
