Since the occupancy rate is still very low, the breakfast at its French restaurant called L’Avenue is set as a la carte instead of buffet.
My boyfriend and I have different preferences for morning beverage. I am a coffee person, so I ordered Hot Cappuccino. The cappuccino is made from the Illy machine, decorated with cinnamon powder in the shape of H – the logo of the Hermitage Hotel.
My boyfriend ordered orange juice. The juice is very fresh, a perfect mixture of sour and sweet. The colour is bold orange, like the colour of jeruk Pontianak, but it has the sourness of sunkist.
I was in the mood for Indonesian, so I ordered Bubur Ayam (Chicken Porridge). The yellow soup tastes like Soto Ayam, maybe it is the same soup used for Soto Ayam menu. I liked the chilli paste and emping.
My boyfriend had Western breakfast: Three Egg Omelette and Hash brown. The hash brown was crispy.
There is a lounge opposite to the restaurant, also decorated with pictures of Javanese lady.
