Breakfast Options

Breakfast is one of our favourite meals and particularly one enjoyed in a restaurant. Breakfast can range from an Egg McMuffin at MacDonald’s to a lavish Buffett at a Four Seasons Hotel and everything in between. 

Two contrasting breakfasts experienced recently are worthy of comment. The first is the special $5.00 breakfast at QUALITY FOODS in Qualicum. Two eggs, you choose the style, two strips of bacon, hash browns, and your choice of toast, 2 pieces. FIVE BUCKS! I’ve had it twice and both times it was good. All properly cooked and satisfying. FIVE BUCKS! 

On the other hand, in Nanaimo the other day,  I slinked into a White Spot and not realizing that my eyes were bigger than my stomach, I ordered the NAT’S HEARTY BREAKFAST.  WHOA! Two eggs, two pancakes, three sausages and hash browns, shredded or smashed. I checked the White Spot website and discovered that my choices added up to more than 1200 calories and 2800 mg of Sodium.  Good Grief. 

It was good, although at my age and activity level,  Nat’s Hearty was just too much. Couldn’t eat it all. This is a meal for someone who is a Triathlon activist. 

Did I mention the price? With a coffee and 20% tip it passed $22.00. For one breakfast.

Next breakfast out will be at Quality Foods. Having said that, I must retry BREAD & HONEY in Parksville. 

Just saying…

One thought on “Breakfast Options

  1. Good morning Terry,

    Wooo looks like you discovered a lot about your hearty breakfast…but the cost is alarming for one breakfast! YIKES

    Yesterday at The Heron Rock Bistro Norm was charged $1.50 for having mustard with his sausage….my friend said she was charged $1.50 extra when she asked for a piece of lemon in her water!

    Breakfast is very trendy …..the owners are starting to realize they can make more money…and people are s till willing to pay the big bucks! We have date day every Sunday…and so it is breakfast out!

    I guess it is still cheaper than Dinner out!

    Take care….have a wonderful day…regards to Susan!
