Table Featuring some of the Best Breakfast Around the World
You can experience a different corner of the world in every single morning without even being late for work. And we are here to guide your every step in order to make sure you get the best breakfast every morning!

The American dream starts with the morning plate

America is known as being a place of great variety when it comes to cuisines. With all its influences and mixes of cultures, it can’t be anything less. So here are five best ways to fix a breakfast meal in the tasty, American way.

1. Cereals and milk. If you want to start the day by the book, this is a great way to make sure you get all the nutrients you need for the first part of the day. Though it’s more popular for kids, cereals are a great source of energy, no matter the age. So don’t be afraid to mix the two most beloved ingredients of a perfect American breakfast.

2. Peanut butter and jam – This is a fun and tasty version of breakfast. If you want to have a pumped day, full of energy and joy, then the mix of a protein bomb with some tasty sweet jam is the best way to start it! And since it’s for the morning, there is no reason to feel bad about the calories! They will all go away until evening!Peanut butter & jam - The American Breakfast

3. Waffles – Do you like waffles? ‘Cause Americans sure love them! Especially in the morning with some tasty sweet syrup and a glass of milk or orange juice. Of course, they work great with coffee too. Just be careful to not over energise yourself and start jogging all the way to work because you’ve mixed too much caffeine and sugar. Which is not such a bad idea, after all, is it?

4. Nutella toast. Ok, maybe you will think that Nutella is not really American. But the Nutella toast has been appropriated by the American culture and is nowadays a very popular breakfast in every American home. Although it is, for sure, of Italian origins, who can resist Nutella after all?

5. Pop-tarts may not be the best option but it’s definitely good when you are on the go and can’t waste much time in order to fix a real breakfast. They are easy to eat and if you mix them with a glass of milk, they may even seem to make up for a decent, healthy-ish breakfast.

Europe has some secrets of a tasty first meal

The old continent sure has a lot of delicious secrets to share, when it comes to the best ways to start the day. And the best thing is that the styles are so different that it’s impossible to not find something to enjoy, no matter what kind of breakfast person you may be – sweet or salty, light or heavy. So here are some ways to start the day, European style.

1. Cappuccino and cornetto is an authentic Italian experience. Start your day on a terrace, facing the beautiful sea while enjoying a delicious cornetto and a flavoured cappuccino and you will feel instantly like you’ve just started your vacation on the Italian coast of the Mediterranean Sea. And if you’ve forgotten your alarm and you are already running late, but still want to enjoy an Italian breakfast, try the Espresso Machiatto and panino. It’s a fast version that will allow you to make it in time for the meeting.

2. Croissant and coffee – The French saga. France is known for a lot of mouthwatering dishes. And breakfast makes no difference. Though it’s a small, light meal, the French breakfast has everything you need in order to start the day in a great way. A flavoured coffee, accompanied by a sweet, tasty croissant is one of the best morning energisers that get you on the move.

3. Smørrebrød is a traditional Scandinavian open-faced sandwich made up of rye bread and butter as the main ingredients. Once you’ve got the basics, you just add whatever you feel like eating: cheese, salami, ham, jam or even chocolate flakes.
