I repaired to the Fountain Restaurant to sample the breakfast menu. In a mini-foyer leading to the dining room, a shrine had been erected honoring Frank Sinatra. The shrine consisted of two cheesy black and white posters with photographs depicting Frank with other famous people - mostly in Las Vegas.
I was greeted by a nice young woman whose duty was to deposit me at my table. Also pleasant was my server, Karen, who was professional and friendly. She was kind enough to indulge my request for matchbooks and napkins with the Fairmont logo.
The setting was excellent, the silverware washed, the ambience sunny and bright. Water-color paintings of cows adorned the walls. Something as stolid as a cow should not be painted in water-color.
I ordered banana-nut pancakes with fresh fruit, coffee, and orange juice. I expected the meal to be pricey, but $3.50 for a glass of orange juice is over the top.
Taking a photograph of your pancakes will turn a few heads, but one must be strong for the sake of art.
