I have to say it's very advised to find a hotel when you travel that includes breakfast, especially in foreign countries that don't often concentrate on breakfast as a meal. My parents skipped the hotel breakfast one day to go out with some friends. It cost €24 (about $36) for four Danish and two coffees.
Our best breakfast was at the Hotel Michelangelo in Milan. One room had about 6 varieties of rolls and croissants, fresh fruit, and cut fruit including kiwis, strawberries plums, and pineapple. All fresh, no cans. And then there was a whole other room with hot stuff. Toast, pasta, meats, cheese, and eggs. But the best part was the fresh orange juice machine. Select your orange from the case, drop it in the wire rack, and put a cup under the spout quick! Two oranges made more than a glass. Clearly that machine was more efficient than my juicer.
We ate well on the trip. All breakfasts were special. But this one clearly had the greatest selection of fruit, which made it healthier.
Oh, and our May new food to try? Loquat. Like a comquat, but larger. While two people weren't fond of it, I loved the sweet-tartness.
This hotel was very nice, perhaps the best we visited, but I would give up the larger bathroom and free mini bar as long as they kept their fabulous breakfast. And the location wasn't bad either, right by the train station.
