there is something for everyone on the buffet and it's all very good. The service is excellent, the coffee is superb. It is not in-expensive, $23 I believe for the breakfast buffet but it's very good food.

Chez Colette is a large room used as the breakfast buffet room at Sofitel. The buffet is the usual but everything that I ate tasted good. I would not describe Chez Colette as exceptional in any way but it was comfortable and satisfactory in all ways.

Since I am a coffee guy, I really payed attention to the coffee, which was excellent. The breakfast on the other hand was very small, especially for the price point.

We have been here several times for breakfast, while staying at the hotel, without issue. However today was RIDICULOUSLY bad. No one greeted us. We waited for quite some time, thinking perhaps we were supposed to seat ourselves. This was not the case, but no apology. OK, no big deal, even though they weren't that busy. When someone finally came... More

A wonderful small restaurant food and service were outstanding. Reservation are necessary on weekends. Everything they serve including drinks is French.

Breakfast was included with my stay at Sofitel. I chose the breakfast buffet. It was a superb meal. Everything was hot or cold, depending its need, and ready to eat. My favorite was the roasted potatoes! Service staff was exceptional. Would totally eat here again.

Our breakfast experience was quite negative. First is the false advertisement of a 'French Brasserie.' Nothing French about it except the common-place wall posters one can see at Target or Walmart. We opted for a buffet option which was unbelievably sub-quality. Three kinds of cheeses available, among which none was of a French origin, how is that for a French... More

Loved the variety of breakfast food, fresh berries, bacon cooked to perfection, mushrooms sautéed, stuffed tomatoes, sausage, and wonderful smoked salmon.

We spent the weekend at Sofitel which is my most favorite hands down.... and I have had many breakfasts at Chez Colette and never disappointed.... ever.... The salmon/spinach eggs benedict and pressed coffee is fabulous.. our server Miguel truly made our breakfast terrific !
