Was expecting a lot from the breakfast buffet, except for the local fare the menu was pretty standard. What irked me though was the quality of the muffins - dry and very sweet.
The fruits were diced to rock like proportions, felt like I was dicing the same while eating. Overall, disappointed.

The Cafe Cha at the Shangri_La Hotel provides an excellent variety for breakfast and therefore if you have an extended stay, you never have to have the same twice. But that is difficult as once tasted you will want to go back again for the same. The service too is excellent with the always friendly staff only to pleased to make your stay more enjoyable.

I had breakfast lunch and dinner at Cafe Cha at least once while I was staying in the hotel. Overall, the food is very good quality, and the selection is enormous. You definitely pay for it though. A continental breakfast with an espresso and a small bottle of sparkling water will set you back around $40. All meals are served either buffet or a la carte style. This isn't your typical buffet though. Lunch and dinner consist of various selections of lobster and fresh seafood as well as various local dishes.

This is an excellent restaurant in one of the best hotels in Beijing, China. The breakfast buffet is great and the dinner seafood buffet is a opportunity not to be missed for those who like a wide range of seafood options.

This has got to be the best breakfast in Beijing – extensive choices and if you don’t get something you like here, you must be extremely fussy – their pastries are to die for and we just could not get enough! Sitting enjoying your meal overlooking the garden is an added treat – don’t miss out on this one!
