Hello All - We are hopefully about to escape our clinical research careers and purchase a 10 bedroom inn at the beach Smiling

For now, we only want to serve breakfast, as we don't want to apply for a food service application at this time.  According to North Carolina regulations, we can serve a "Continental Breakfast" limited to bakery items, whole fruit, beverages and individually packaged food.  I'd love to hear what items others are serving for their continental breakfasts.  Would anyone be kind enough to share your menus?  Many thanks in advance!

If you cannot cook, or don’t want to, this is what I like when traveling:

  • Yogurt
  •  juice
  •  fresh fruit
  •  boxed cereal
  •  milk
  •  bagels and a way to toast them

 I can no longer eat sweets for breakfast, which breaks my heart, but there you have it.

 It really depends on your market. You may want hummus as an option. I’d eat that! 

We are at the beach right now and my suggestion is to have breakfast available on the earlier side for folks who want to get out for the day.

Among other things, we put out a make-your-own yogurt parfait bar.    Individual yogurt cups, fresh fruit and lots of toppings choices.    Coconut, walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds.....

When I opened in 1996, I was doing Continental Plus. I did several kinds of muffins and breads, juices, fruit, and coffee/tea.  Since then (I discovered a cooked breakfast was easier) I have made bagels and they are really easy to do. I sometimes make them now but would have bagels on the Continental breakfast menu. Jams, jellies, cream cheese, apple butter, individual yogurts on the side. A toaster with butter and honey and a couple kinds of bread (white, wheat, and perhaps rye).
