Just getting a simple cup of coffee can be a challenge... :)

Graham Chastney

Looks like you have been visiting the States about as long as I have. I too used to worry about breakfast, in recent years though I have tried to make it a game. Can I order breakfast without the waiter/ress asking me another question. Can I define the specification so accurately that there won't be another question. I know have a very long and detailed specification but have yet to succeed in having the waiter/ress just say 'OK'. It's a challenge that I am still pursuing, I will succeed (or perhaps not).

Judy Gombita

When some friends from the UK crossed the pond several years ago (primarily to visit Toronto and New York), what impressed them about North American breakfasts was the fruit garnishing the plates. (They asked us whether the fruit should be eaten or just admired.)


Ah, I didn't mention the coffee, Robin!

Graham, that's probably indicative of more patience than I care to have at breakfast time.

That's another one, Judy - the fruit!

Ted Demopoulos

Maybe that's why American servers expect such a big gratuity :)

I'll take a buffet anyday - quick and fast, and decisions delayed until you're looking at the food. Now overeating is a different issue . . .


You would think the buffet would make choices easier, Ted. Yet the buffet spread in the last US hotel I stayed in was a bit like the jam experiment I mentioned in the post - so many choices!
