Is the current voucher for continental breakfast buffet or full buffet?

I'd appreciate clarification on standards on this point.
Thanks for reporting this. As of today they will offer all the items listed on the breakfast vouchers.
If there are any other anomalies out there, please feel free to let me know.

W Paris Opera - offered complimentary continental breakfast as amenity choice on check-in. Even though I choose points, the voucher was put in my key wallet - notes on it read that "as a minimum it includes juice, coffee, pastries, cereal and yogurt (sic) for you and one other guest registered to your guest room".

Asked for the breakfast at check-in. Agent seemed surprised at first, but then produced a spg coupon for breakfast.
Breakfast in Bank restaurant is a limited buffet (all the main things are there, bread, fruit, yougurt, cereal, juice....just that there is not a lot of choices of each). Also scrambled eggs and sausage/bacon.
The good stuff is on the ala carte menu and unsurprisingly this is not included.
All in all a decent breakfast and I would select it again as the amenity.
footnote; midway through meal, I was personally greeted by the GM who mentioned I was the first recipient of the plat brekkie.
Toronto Sheraton Airport is offering full buffett breakfast in the restaurant. They said this was because they don't normally offer a continental option. Except in the lounge, which has always been a fairly decent fare in the morning, with at least one hot egg option, sort of a Continental+.
Ironically, I took the points even though I had a breakfast meeting in the restaurant at the Sheraton. My client was paying.
They were confused when I mentioned it, but seems most people have breakfast in their rate? Was directed to the breakfast buffet that everyone gets. It was dreadful powdered eggs and bread, but a very fair offer for Plats.
