“Look who descended to have / having breakfast with us!”
(Said about someone who normally rather keeps aloof.)
Which one is correct?
It's "to have", as it follows a conjugated verb, the conjugated verb is not a verb that takes a gerund usually and "having" in this sense (heres where I'm guessing a bit) would possibly mean "who/what/that [be] having/has" – i.e. a participial clause (I think!).

"Look who deigned to have breakfast with us."
Thanks, I'll try "to have".
Does no one else think that “Look who's descended to (the level of) having breakfast with us!” with "the level of" implied, is possible in speech?
