Typical buffet style breakfast. $38.50 per person which is not too bad considering real coffee is offers not just the drip or instant type. Omelettes are made fresh to order, good selection of cakes and smoothies.

Perfect for breakfast meetings, business-friendly and great coffee. If you are staying at the Crown Metropol hotel you will receive a discount voucher and free coffees. Also good for Asian dinner, reasonable prices, tasty food.
