The Bel Cafe is located in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. It is operated by Chef David Hawksworth, the proprietor of Hawksworth next door. This is a real coffee shop: They offer patisserie-style baked goods, coffee served in real cups and food served on real plates.
I had honey muffin and ordered 8 macarons for Sleeping Beauty. The vote from my Sleeping Beauty: She said the macarons are as good as Bottega Louie, but not as good as Laduree in France. I have never been to France, but I have had the Laduree macarons at Charles de Gaulle Airport and they are excellent. I didn't get to try these macarons :-( The muffin was pretty good. It was moist and flavorful: Both 4 Stars.
The ambiance was buzzing @ 8 am on a Fri. There were business types, workers grabbing a quick cafe & breakfast item, or tourists like me. There is good people watching because the cafe is on the corner. My server was friendly and efficient: Both 4 Stars.
I would definitely come here again regardless or not if I was staying in the hotel. Bel Cafe offers good quality food, friendly service and nice ambiance.
