That looks like enough to feed a family for a week. No way you'd get such good value in the south or Belfast/ Dublin.

Those prices are amazing. Maybe a loss leader or something? Check it out.

What is it with the beans? How did that evolve to the breakfast plate? And why no fried potatoes?

Them beans are revolting, be it at breakfast or any other time. Just like English bacon, usually a chewy undercooked mess dripping with fat. Give me a regular American breakfast with crispy bacon and hash browns anytime.

Best value breakfast is IMHO at dolce vita on 172. I trade the banger for extra bacon and refuse the beans. 3 eggs, ham and crispy bacon, hash browns, tomato, toasts w/ jam and butter and a decent cup of coffee, all for $4.

Never understood how hash browns and baked beans ended up as classic English breakfast food. When l was a kid back in Devon sixty years ago breakfast was a combination of, bacon, sausage, black or hogs pudding, fried bread, bubble, fried eggs tomato when in season and mushrooms freshly picked at daybreak from the fields. The bread fried in dripping of course and washed down by strong tea.

I don't really find it hard to get good breakfasts. The examples shown here in this thread are not exceptional, rare or stellar. It is not hard to cook the ingredients and assemble together a decent breakfast. The main variable is value for money which is key.

I personally like buffet's; all you can eat, where I can assemble my own. The best I had recently was at Memoire d' Angkor Boutique Hotel in Siem Reap. $7.50 all you can eat (for guests and included otherwise with your room rental). Sausages, Bacon, lots of cold cuts and salads, breads and pastries. Even some disgusting beans if that what floats your boat. Eggs any style. The breakfast is presented for western palates, but there is also an Asian selection if you have company along which seems adequate.

The dining room is nice and bright and comfortable enough. Good enough to sit for a few hours and get a bit of online work done, while grazing and drinking your coffee. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

One thing of value that really adds up at other places is if you are being charged per cup of Coffee. This is free flow, and they will even bring you cappuccino.

Image
Memoire d' Angkor Boutique Hotel (SR) free flow coffee and Cappuccino. I cannot believe I didn't take some photo's of my breakfasts here, I usually do. Apologees.

Image
Eggs Benny, from the A la Carte menu at the lovely (yet unfortunately named) Anusa Residence & Spa, Siem Reap. Portions a bit small, but not bad food. Was not sitting on a proper English muffin however.

Image
From the buffet; the best I could assemble at Pacific Hotel, Phnom Penh. Definitely not fantastic, but didn't leave me starving.

Image
a la carte Breakfast fail at Ashia Hotel & Lounge (not recommended)
Portion small, closed off room with no natural light, and tables that you cannot get your legs under. (and no AC)

Image
Breakfast and Sunrise at Ratanakiri-Boutique Hotel, Banlung. Exceeded my expectations, although wouldn't have sought it out. Service was good, and they would have brought me more if I had asked for it.
