Good spot for a breakfast meeting

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.

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

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.

Great croissants, hot from the oven. The restaurant is a beautifully decorated room with period French posters.

We stayed at the Hotel Sofitel on a rate which included breakfast, so we ate here for breakfast three times, and also had their Christmas day buffet dinner. The service was generally good, but the food quality really varied. The first morning we ordered off of the menu and all three of us enjoyed our meals. I had the ham... More

Breakfast was included in our room rate at the Sofitel Philadelphia (normally $23pp). Although there was a bit of a wait for a table this morning, our server was very sweet and the buffet did not disappoint! Quite a variety- eggs, bacon, sausage, sautéed mushrooms, baked tomatoes, potatoes, french toast, eggs, bread/croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, salmon, cheeses and meats,... More

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.
