Breakfast is a very important meal in Brazil. There is a wide variety of foods to
choose from. Of course there were fruits like pineapple, mango, watermelon, strawberry,
guava, jack fruit, cantaloupe, papaya, and passion fruit to enjoy. We also enjoyed
juices that were made out of several of these fruits. Coffee is also a focal point
of breakfast; Brazilian coffee is very sweet, strong and served in small cups.
Mozzarella cheese and slices of ham are served at breakfast as well. Breads are
another huge part of a Brazilian breakfast.
There were different types of breads served, from croissants
to various types of biscuits that were either covered in cheese or had some type
of jelly filling. We also devoured Brazilian scrambled eggs and sausages, which
were delicious. In Brazil, you can even enjoy black beans with yogurt in the morning.
Brazilian breakfast buffets are a wonderful experience!
Darius - "Breakfast for me was one of the best meals of the day.
To wake up to such a wide variety of fruits and cooked foods was a joy. In Brazil
I experienced different types of breads and fell in love with waffles or at least
the syrup that was served with them. A Brazilian breakfast is awesome."
Victoria - "The fruit in Brazil was so fresh and good! There were fruits such as
the jaca (jack fruit) that I had never even heard of. It was some of the best fruit
I have ever eaten!"
Ed - "Every morning was a drag. I am not much of a morning person, but staying at
the Othon Palace in Salvador made it so much better. The hotel had the best syrup
for their waffles that I have ever tasted. The Shalimar Hotel in Porto Seguro had
the freshest fruit drinks one could imagine."
Jesse - "Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day and thanks to Brazil
I don't think that will ever change. My typical Brazilian breakfast consisted of
a variety of fresh and delicious fruits. I simply fell in love with the pineapple
and papaya, which seemed to get more delectable by the day. The yogurt I ate was
also very good and surprisingly different from what I am accustomed to. While at
breakfast I did not find much use for my utensils. Everything was just finger-licking
Ben - "There's nothing like waking up a little dehydrated and going to a Brazilian
breakfast. The omelets are incredible, the array of fruits such as pineapple, melon
and mango are enough to bring anyone back to life. The coffee is strong and sweet
and the juices are fresher than any store bought brand."
