Fellow Boarding Area blogger Gary Leff noted on Sunday that self-serve buffets have kind of returned to Delta Sky Clubs.

My family visited the Delta Sky Club in MSP’s main concourse yesterday. We sampled the breakfast presentation and products.

Don’t get too excited: things aren’t the way they were before the pandemic.

Guests may now serve themselves some items. But there’s still a lot of pre-packaged food. And Sky Club employees plate other items from behind the buffet.

At the start of the line are wrapped English muffins and bagels that guests may pop into a toaster. You’ll also find peanut butter packets and jelly packets.

After that are assorted muffins and breads.

Then come a couple of hot warm options: breakfast sandwiches. Some are made with sausage — others with plant-based/vegetarian “sausage.”

I found the breakfast sandwiches awful. I’d be surprised (and embarrassed for Delta) if they were made in the Sky Club kitchen. They tasted as though they were originally packaged, then unwrapped, toasted, and tossed onto the buffet. The bread was stale, the cheese unappetizing, and the patty was, gross.

There is an array of hard-boiled eggs, oats, croissants with egg salad, and a “grain bowl.”

Toward the end of the line, a pleasant woman staffed the “create-your-own-yogurt-mix.” I asked for vanilla yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and granola. That was very good and the highlight of breakfast.

Some fruit salad options and 2% milk cartons are also available.

And some dry cereal selections round out the food offerings.

Non-alcoholic beverages are self-serve.

My wife and I think the Starbucks coffee tastes better in Sky Clubs and on planes than at actual Starbucks stores. (And we like Starbucks coffee, FWIW). What do you think?

As for adult beverages, the Delta Sky Club bar menu is available via the Internet. There’s a QR code you can scan — or just bookmark this page.

I wish Delta would give trays to Sky Club guests. It makes carrying food and drinks so much easier. The American Express Centurion Lounge in Las Vegas starting doing this and I appreciate the enhancement. I understand this means more work and expense –but it makes the guests’ experience easier and better.

Final Approach

We’re slowly but surely returning to some semblance of normal — though I don’t necessarily mind Sky Club staff members plating food to guests. The food options were fairly meh the day I visited — hopefully, we’ll see some tastier options return soon.

  1. Review made me smile–honest assessment of yukkie burgers. Yay for Starbucks in the Delta lounges–I agree. And glad for the granola with fresh fruit. Thank you!

  2. So I have flown on 10 trips in the last 12 months. Been to the sky clubs at pbi, the temp one at fll before it closed, nashville and several in Atlanta. I have to say that the PBI and nashville locations are doing a much better job than the clubs in Atlanta. Better sections and quality of offerings.

    On Friday May 21 we visited the Sky Club at A40 in DTW midday. They had a nice buffet of cold cuts, cheeses, small sandwiches, etc. There was an employee that plated your dish which was perfectly fine with me. Still good to see something other than only pre-packaged items.
