What is a Continental Breakfast?
Continental breakfast is an institutional meal plan based on lighter Mediterranean breakfast traditions. It is a light meal meant to satisfy one until lunch. A typical Continental breakfast consists of coffee and milk (often mixed as Cappuccino or latte) or hot chocolate with a variety of sweet cakes such as brioche and pastries such as croissant, often with a sweet jam, cream, or chocolate filling. It is often served with juice. The continental breakfast may also include sliced cold meats, such as salami or ham, and yogurt or cereal. Some countries of Europe, such as The Netherlands and those in Scandinavia, add a bit of fruit and cheese to the bread menu, occasionally even a boiled egg or a little salami.
The Continental Breakfast concept is not limited to Europe, as evidenced by the numerous hotel chains that offer this service worldwide.
Continental Breakfast at Hotel Chains may vary:
- Waffles: variety of syrup flavors
- Fruit: Apples, bananas, peaches, strawberries,
- Juice: apple, orange, grape, tomato
- Drinks: Coffee, hot chocolate, tea,
Continental Breakfast is Buffee Style
A buffet is a meal system where patrons generally serve themselves. It is a popular method for feeding a large number of people with minimal staff. Buffets are offered at various places including hotels, casinos, cruise ships, and at church and social events. Sideboards are also known as buffets as they may be used to offer the dishes of a buffet meal to guests.
