This breakfast will last you well into the late afternoon. For most people the breakfast is included in the cost of the room, but some folks do come into the hotel just for breakfast. You get much of the beauty and ambience of the hotel at a much lower price than a formal dinner.
If you want an early coffee you will need to order room service. Also this hotel does not have the common Europeon custom of a coffee/ tea maker in each bedroom. No one will rush you if you want to keep your table for a very long time. You will not feel the pressure of others waiting for a table. If the morning light is just too much for you, you can have a 'continental' in the deep shadows of the bar. See photos for the fireplace in that bar. What a place.

I began with a fruit cocktail, the others had seafood cocktails (as usual heavy in mayo). We had a plated salad in the Europeon style: sliced cold fish, white asparagus, small tomatoes--no lettace, no dressing. I ordered salmon poached in white wine. As good as salmon can ever be! Served with small white potatos and fish knifes. (My mother would be so pleased!)
In the style of Spain, the table was ours for the entire evening. No reservations booked behind us. We sat down at 9pm and stood up again at 11:45pm. (2100 to 2345 hours). We spent the time between courses chatting, enjoying the atmosphere and trying several different wines. As we had a celebration, we bought several bottles of Spanish cava. As far as I am concerned a superior product to champaign.
The dessert was a flan (said to be made in a convent). Many of the finer desserts in Sevilla are such. Truly milk and honey!
After nearly having to throw a rope around one of the waiters to get our bill, we signed and went upstairs feeling like royalty. However, a very, very expensive evening. To us, worth every cent.
