Breakfast and good coffee for foot commute in the CBD

I have been working at One Shell Square and staying at either the Intercontinental or Hotel W for the last few weeks and have not yet found a decent breakfast solution. I just want to grab some kind of egg sandwichy something that is not microwaved and an espresso (or expresso, in the local tongue) based coffee beverage that doesn't taste like cough syrup. This morning I went to the W Café in the lobby of the hotel and got a breakfast croissant, which would have been great if it had been fresh and not nuked. My coffee options were regular and decaf. Apparently the commercial espresso machine behind the counter has a purely decorative role.
Sorry about the complaining! Please help and keep in mind that I do not have a car and won’t take a taxi to go have breakfast.
