The Maritim Hotel Frankfurt charges 28 euros ($36 / £34) for their buffet breakfast.

http://www.maritim.de...

This is not some posh boutique hotel in some exotic location catering for celebrities and the mega-rich – it's just a modern, featureless, four-star city centre hotel patronised by investment accountants, systems engineers and other similarly mundane nobodies like me.

28 euros for a bit of scraggy, dried-up bacon and some congealed eggs is a shameless rip-off but, unfortunately, most hotels charge like a wounded bull for brekkers.

It's wrong, but if there's nowhere else to eat locally, your only choice is to pay up or go to your meetings hungry.

If you are staying there and paying that then you are part of the evil plutocracy growing fat on the blood of the worker! Viva la revolution!
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Was at a crappy hotel in Montreal last summer with a breakfast for $40!!!!! Each person $40!!!!!! There were three of us, and it was $120.00 for a really standard breakfast, okay the croissants were good, but still.

The best breakfasts are at Irish B & B's. The full Irish mmmmmmmmm, and cheap too. It's all included and you can find some really decent places.

Get McDonald's.
Trans-fats galore, and it will probably give you a coronary, but it's delicious.
I miss the old members.

McGriddle's are the most superior breakfast sandwich of the fast food world.

Just because our meals are not all three times the size of our stomachs and covered in five inches of molten cheese does not mean that we don't eat well.
