Surprise buffet

When I sat down I thought the menu was OK, and there was a buffet. I thought the buffet would be eggs, sausage, potatoes which did not appeal to me after similar at a conference the previous 2 days. But I decided to look anyway and found what I expected, then turned around and found a line of... read more

We were staying at the Sofitel and this day had breakfast at Chez Colette. From the first moment we walked in it was a wonderful experience. The server was amazing. He was funny and very helpful. Nothing was a problem. I had a tomato and spinach omelette and potatoes. The server also brought us the most amazing croissant. Definitely will... More

We stayed at Sofitel for business overnight and decided to have breakfast before heading out for the day. When we stood to be seated, we waited a few minutes- then we were seated and looked around at a number of tables with guests seated in a spacious well decorated room. We sat for over 10 minutes with my husband asking... More

Only had breakfast here, twice, but it was an absolutely lovely way to start the day. Had an amazing smoothie one day. An amazing omelette the other. Great service, friendly staff.

Had a weekend breakfast buffet at the restaurant while visiting Philly. Buffet had a good variety of foods and the price wasn't that bad compared to a la carte. We ate quite late and the place was almost empty and it seemed that some of the food had been on serve for quite a while and didn't taste that fresh... More

Had a business breakfast here. Place was pretty empty. The men had omelets which were HUGE. Smoked salmon on bagel for me. Service was good. Overall good spot for a breakfast meeting.

Good food selection and excellent staff. Everything has a little French touch. Nothing over the top but solid style.

Went to Colette the first time for the breakfast buffet, I was not dissapointed at all. Food was very good as well as the service. I went back with a friend for the tea party one afternoon, she loved it too.

We enjoyed their breakfast buffet. It was very fresh and constantly turned over and added to. Nice continental selection. The waitstaff was courteous.
