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.

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.
