Hello Hello,

I decided yesterday to set up a blog - Hotel Breakfasts dedicated to finding the best and worst hotel breakfasts in the world - its fairly new and I haven't added many pictures or reviews yet.

Would the kind members of style forum like to add anything? Ideally a .jpg and a couple of lines of text, describing your satisfaction or dissatisfaction at the various breakfasts you may have had in the last couple of years.

Thanks a lot!

Most of the yank chain hotels I've been here have been buffet style so I'm not sure there's much if any expectation. I did try one yesterday, and it felt so unhealthy I must have walked two paces slower and breathed harder for a good two hours. Remarkably I was not hungry until 7pm either.

cool site.

I have a preference for sites with fresh juice and indian and japanese options. I find that rice and or indian breads are a lot lighter than the standard anglo saxon breakfast

Best hotel breakfast has to be at the Metropol in Moscow. A buffet of almost every conceivable breakfast food in the world, all of it expertly prepared.

It was almost an embarrassment of riches when you realize how much of it will be thrown away, however, and how just a block or two away there are pensioners starving in the streets. But oh well! Garcon, another half-dozen croissants and some miso soup while you're at it, pozhalsta!

EDIT: To the OP: great photos. Making me hungry just looking at them.

Love breakfast in that part of the world.

If I'm awake for breakfast service I like going down to the hotels locally for the buffets. They have your typical fry-up stuff, omelettes, roast meats and veggies, Japanese and Chinese stuff, some kimchi for the Koreans, tons of fruit and cereals, a green salad bar with a lot of pickles and olives, some charcuterie and cheese, and great baked goods and fruit juices. It's usually around $35/head but for the food involved, it's a great deal. Imported groceries like that can be quite expensive.

The Grand Hyatt here has a lackluster brunch with far fewer options, but unlimited champagne for $75ish a head, for 4 hours. Haven't been, but I'd like to go.

I like the typical British breakfast -- eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, baked beans, grilled tomatoes. Had that every morning in Sri Lanka plus a great selection of fresh tropical fruit. Mmmmmmmm.

Japanese hotel breakfast buffets are pretty awesome IME. The bakers always pride themselves to make bread and croissants just like their French teachers showed them - and the scrambled eggs are so orange !

that's those amazing Japanese eggs, the yolks are the biggest and most intensely I've ever seen before.

High end hotel hears do a good british style breakfast (at least good by north american standards). The King Edward is good.

Travelling, I think I've enjoyed the breakfasts in sweden the most. The traditional swedish breakfast seems to be yogurt and muesli followed by a sandwich on fantastic fresh bread - salami and peppers and so on. Actually lots of smoked fish too. I passed on the smoked fish. That bread was amazing though.

I'm currently on a low-carb diet and this may be biasing me.
