The Philippines' First All-Opinion Website

If there is any meal I would wake up for, it’s breakfast. Besides looking forward to good coffee, a good breakfast buffet spread is a must.

Many hotels can be rated just by checking their breakfast buffet. As a traveler, I always judge a hotel and its management on the attention they give their food.

They may have the best rooms and nice amenities but their breakfast is something every traveler must enjoy and be able to talk about, long after the hotel stay is over.


Swissotel Bosphorus
Istanbul, Turkey
One cannot get enough of Turkey and one cannot get enough of the Swissotel’s breakfast buffet. They offer local breads, three kinds of honey, three or more kinds of butter and a host of cheeses and local spreads. They have different ways to have eggs including the local Shakshouka. There are many kinds of sausages like the local Suchuk and all kinds of ham and bacon.

The Level
Melia Hanoi
Hanoi, Vietnam
At the Executive Lounge, you need not miss the cafe breakfast. Everything you need and possibly crave for is available even if the lounge is compact and cozy.
They have smoked salmon eggs Benedict as well as eggs cooked your way.
They also have the local soup Pho with chicken or beef.


The Oberoi
New Delhi, India
Indian breads, Shambar, chutneys are my favorites at the newly refurbished Oberoi. Though they have western choices, the local specialties are worth the carbs and fats. Everyday there are different breads to try along with lentils and other dips.

The Haymarket
Stockholm, Sweden
The best organic breads, grass-fed butter and local cheeses are common fare in Stockholm. There are also jams and jellies, all kinds of juices, and the best coffee.

These hotels are tops on my list. Their breakfasts are worth waking up early for.

Their coffee is all good. Bad coffee will negate every good experience with the food. Coffee is the best gauge to see if the hotel takes their food and beverage seriously.

Coffee at The Oberoi

First test at a hotel? Try their coffee. If it is good, chances are the good food will follow.

Do you agree?
