Be in good taste when breakfast is served

You’ve heard it time and time again – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether you personally believe this or not, your guests are hungry and they want to wake up with a satisfying breakfast. While the complimentary selection is the most popular, the paid variety is just as important when it comes to staying on trend and in good taste. So what’s on the menu this year? Just see our guide below for some insider insight.

  1. Get Exotic
    Ethnic food is having a moment this year. Why not embrace food items such as Latin-inspired breakfast burritos and wraps? If you want to branch beyond that, by all means feel free to delve into other cultures.
  2. Baked Good-ness
    What’s an easier grab-n-go meal than baked goods and a good cup of coffee? Nothing. Well, nothing as satisfying at least. From pastries to biscuits to toasty breakfast sandwiches, these foods are a popular item for their portability and hominess.
  3. Upgrade the Continental
    Say so long to runny eggs and stale bagels. Don’t nix your hot items – they’re a popular choice, but consider the addition of mix-ins, such as shredded cheese, diced ham and spinach to add some flair and flavor. Also, don’t forget the healthy options such as Greek yogurt with a variety of topping options, such as dried fruits, seeds, and nuts. You have to remember that nearly every guest that passes under your roof will take advantage of a free continental breakfast, and more importantly, it’s the last taste guests will have before checking out, so make it a good one.
  4. A Focus on Local
    If your property provides a continental service, this may not be the most economical option for you, but hotels that provide a paid breakfast service have the choice of being able to source locally grown and produced foods. In a society full of foodies and sustainable trends, offering local products rings bells for a lot of guests and it is a good way to support the community that supports you.

Voila! Just like that you have the makings for an incredible breakfast, and a plan to ensure your guests start the day off right and leave with a good taste in their mouths.
