Breakfast is served on the 26th floor of the Sheraton Leblon. L’Etoile, the hotel’s French restaurant host the traditional, early-morning affair. Guests may enjoy North American classics from omelets to champagne before the venue turns fully français. Successfully seeking out good breakfast abroad is cause for celebration. It is too early for champagne, but a bottle is chilled in case a toast proves opportune. O. removes our plates, and we linger to admire the beach below. Our sentiment is reflected in the view of the serene ocean.
