I have two breakfast options which work very well for the locals as well as the tourists.
I have the menue's on each table for the guests to see the options available.
Option 1 - Continental Breakfast (which is included in the room rate) and the guests help themselves.
Large jug of orange juice.
Choice of three cereals which are served in large bowls (Muesli, Kellogg's all bran flakes and Kellogg's corn flakes)
Large jug of fresh milk.
Plain and mixed fruit yogurt served on a platter.
Assorted Muffins served on a platter.
Plain butter Croissants separately wrapped served in a wicker basket. Pre-heat in the microwave for 45 seconds and they stay warm for some time.
Two types of cheeses which I buy pre-wrapped mixed with cherry or similar tomatoes served on a platter.
Bowl of boiled eggs in the shell.
Bowl of freshly cut fruit salad (at least five different one's)
Toast - white or brown bread.
Seperate station with a selection of different teas, instant coffee and percolator coffee.
The good thing about the above with the exception of the fruit salad is that what is not used can be refrigerated for the next day. Just monitor that the tomatoes do not go soft and the yoghurts "use by" date. There is very little wastage this way.
Option 2 - English Breakfast (at a extra charge) BUT the Continental is also included. They can choose from below.
Hot Jungle Oats served with honey.
Bacon - streaky is the best.
Eggs (two) choice of scrambled, fried, poached or boiled. (No omelettes served - too complicated)
Sausage - choice of beef or pork fried.
Fried tomatoes with a little ground black pepper.
Baked beans warmed in the microwave with fried onions.
Fried button mushrooms with black ground pepper (optional as they can be very expensive)
Selection of pre-packed jams and butter on the tables.
My guests never leave the dining room hungry and they always compliment me on the great breakfasts.
Big bonus is that once the guests see that there is a charge for the English breakfast (which can be expensive).....95% of them settle for the Continental breakfast only which is a saver for me and a win win situation for all.
When there are children, I place a plate of pancakes on the table. They love them and this really fills them.
For vegetarians, I keep a stock of Vegan sausages.
Give it a try and good luck.
