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 !

Food was excellent but it was bit high for breakfast. Love the fact that the price includes food AND beverage.

We stayed at the Hotel Sofitel so before our plane left, we joined our daughter and her fiancee at Chez Colette for Sunday Brunch. It was marvelous! The service is wonderful throughout the hotel, and we were lucky to have the same "Ambassador" that had waited on us the day before in the bar. Do recommend the buffet, wide selection... More

I had a wonderful new scallop dish. The waitress asked if I wanted dessert. I said I'd like just a bit of chocolate. She brought me a beautiful bowl of fresh raspberries, blueberries, and something else with a few pieces of very good chocolate. It was perfect.

Chez Colette is a great breakfast option, especially if you're staying at the Sofitel. The pastries and breads are dangerously addictive--thank heaven the chocolate croissants are mini-sized! And the healthy egg scramble is far more flavorful than one expects from a "health food" option.

The egg and spinach scramble atop brown rice was fantastic, as was the less healthy mini chocolate croissant. My friend has a Belgian waffle that she declared to be the best Belgian waffle she has ever had. Everything in this place was delicious.

We stayed at the connected Sofitel (fabulous) and had breakfast at Chez Colette our last morning. The pricing is expected for a restaurant attached to a hotel, and the quality was better than an average "hotel breakfast", but not the best given the surrounding options. The buffet was stocked with your usual breakfast meats, danishes and pastries, home fries, eggs... More
