A continental breakfast is a light morning meal that is provided by many hotels and motels. It traditionally includes bread products, fruit juice and hot beverages. The Belmore Court & Motel also include other types of food, such as cereal, and fruit. Our breakfast is presented in a buffet, from which guests can help themselves, rather than being served to the guests like it would be in a restaurant.
Origin of the TermThe term "continental breakfast" refers to the continent of Europe and distinguishes this simple breakfast from an English breakfast, which typically consists of more food and often includes meats, cereals, fruits and even vegetables in addition to bread products, juice and hot beverages. It also is convenient for travelers who might not have time for a sit-down meal in the morning before needing to continue on their journey.
