Located inside the Crowne Plaza in Milpitas, Sevens serves up a breakfast buffet for around $20 or complimentary as part of your stay in certain packages. After waiting for a couple of minutes at the entrance, I was seated by a hostess who took my drink order. I opted for a glass of orange juice while I departed for the buffet. Upon arrival, I found some sliced pound cake, bananas, cereals, milk, and toast. On the back counter, there was some fruit, yogurt, and hard-boiled eggs. On top of hot plates next to the fruit, there were trays of home-style potatoes, “assorted dim sum”, cheddar eggs, Italian sausage, and bacon.

On my first trip to the buffet, the hot food items were pretty much cleaned out. The home-style potatoes tasted OK, but needed some ketchup, which I had to ask for. The “assorted dim sum” was just a meat-filled deep-fried wonton, which tasted a bit bland, but was edible. The cheddar eggs did not seem to be firm enough and had a lot of give. You can definitely tell the eggs came from a carton too, and I still couldn’t really taste the cheddar. The Italian sausage tasted a bit off and was not flavorful. Hopefully the links were cooked all the way. The bacon was not very crispy and was more crunchy instead. On my second trip to the buffet line, the potatoes, Italian sausage, and bacon were all refilled, so I did get some more potatoes and sausage. Although this food came from a fresh batch, they still tasted the same. After I finished that plate, I did go back to see if there was any good fruit left, but I did not see anything I wanted. I did revisit the buffet the next day and was happy to find some new items and a stocked hot food area. In lieu of the home-style potatoes were hash browns and in lieu of the breakfast sausage was Italian sausage. Unfortunately, the food tasted like it had been left out for a while and was not fresh. I did find a salmon and cheese platter in the cold fruit area. The smoked salmon was cold, but tasted very fishy.

Overall, Sevens serves up an adequate breakfast buffet for hotel guests, but I would certainly not spend $20 for the meal. I did notice a waffle station there, but it was not in operation. Also, some guests were able to order other items from the back like a smoked salmon with cheese platter, but I was not sure if that was part of the buffet. Service was OK since my original plate was taken away, but I was not offered a refill in my juice, and they took my fork away from my first trip. If you are staying at the hotel and have a breakfast voucher, by all means give Sevens a try, but I would not make a special trip out here to try it.
