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

They greet you with a "Bonjour," which is nice, and then they delight with attentive but not obtrusive service. We had breakfast here, which included complimentary little somethings, as well as breads like croissants. Orange juice was first rate, as was my oatmeal and the fruit medley. French toast was a tad undercooked; my wife says because they used the... More

I had breakfast with my family. Everything was top quality. The viennoiseries were fresh, delicious. Coffee was very good (Italian Lavazza). Fruit juice was freshly squeezed, so very natural. Fruit salad was great. Eggs and bacon wee also top quality. The room is also very nice and comfortable with comfy chairs and lots of space. Service very attentive and professional.... More
