Rating: Mid level Italian breakfast
As I’ve written about earlier, almost all hotels in Italy include buffet breakfast. The Grand Hotel Miramare is no exception.
This is the same dining terrace as we ate dinner at on the previous evening.
And the view still doesn’t suck.
The have cappuccino and juice as always.
Various sausages, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes.
A few cakes and jams, although nothing compared to the cake selection at the Adriatic beach hotel.
And a closeup of the cheese. Missing here, oddly for Italy, were the cured meats like Prosciutto.
My plate. A bit of protein, a bit of cake.
This local cake was really interesting. Not only did it have various dried fruits inside (raisons and some other stuff), but it had fennel seeds!
Overall this breakfast, while totally fine, was a bit of a disappointment considering the level of the hotel. The more commercial Palace Hotel (here for breakfast) we stayed at earlier in the trip had a much more extensive buffet, with even a slightly higher ingredient level. Even the Real Fini (here for breakfast) may have had a few more options, although the breakfasts were fairly comparable.
