It was an extremely cold morning. When we reached the Cafe, we were welcomed by the staff. Food was great. I had yogurt with granola and fruits and my son eggs Benedict. We shared a Crispy Belgian waffle.

You don't have to leave the hotel to grab a Starbucks coffee, latte, or other brand drink AND you can pick up pastries and fruits right there too! Or, let a hostess seat you for breakfast!

Basic lobby coffee shop and restaurant. They serve large omelets and breakfast entrees. Service is fine. Much better food than the Pfister Club on the 23rd floor.

We had breakfast and all of our selections were prepared perfectly. Our waitress was very nice. My egg white omelet was perfect and my daughters cheese omelet was as well.
