What we ate:
I chose a combination of items from “To start with” and “the hot menu”..
To clarify, “To start” is a bread basket (yummy one, pictured above) and a drink of your choice: tea, coffee and juices.
The hot item I selected was the house breakfast. Along with the usual suspects- sausages, mushrooms, beans, bacon, eggs - was an unusual item called home fries. The poached egg was very well prepared, the moment I cut the egg, the yolk flowed fluidly. Also jams and butter were served, pictures of which were not taken. The mint lemonade I had sadly didn’t have the zing I seek in juices. I did point it to them because they seem like one of those places that would take suggestions seriously.
It’s a good thing I don’t have vertigo or that would ruined my appetite. If you can tear your eyes away from the windows, you will be delighted by the excellent service at La Verenne. I ordered a portion of waffles with apple sauce. The waffles were a bit too crispy for my liking, but they offered extra maple syrup which softened it considerably. This is an AWESOME place to have breakfast. My only criticisms are that they don’t open on weekends which makes it hard for office goers like us to visit it during the week (since we wrote the review, the place is now open on the weekends too) AND parking at Tornado tower is really hard. So you have to reserve a day in advance by email [firstname.lastname@example.org] so they can provide your name to the security at the gate. But the trouble is worth the experience at the highest place in Doha to eat breakfast.
Excellent service and great views of skyscrapers or the corniche. Food & coffee = good.
