How would you like your eggs?

Scrambled, fried or poached?

Instead of the McDonalds saying, “Do you want fries with that?” the traditional Bed and Breakfast saying might be, “How would you like your eggs- scrambled, fried or poached?”

A traditional Bed and Breakfast offers a hearty, cooked breakfast with a combination of locally made products and/or locally sourced produce. 

Sit down to a sumptuous, fulfilling breakfast of bacon and eggs, with sides that might include grilled tomatoes, mushrooms (with or without garlic), sausages, hash browns or a range of local delicacies.  

 Each property will offer something slightly different but with a basic offering that includes bacon and eggs. 

A great deal of love and tenderness goes into the offering from the Bed and Breakfast host. Be it home-made sauces or relishes from vegetables grown on the property, homemade jams and marmalades from local fruit and berry suppliers or eggs from the henhouse. 

Time and effort have been spent to create the “home-cooked breakfast” on offer that will get you started for your day of adventure and exploration.

Waking up to the smells of bread baking, bacon on the grill, or a coffee brewing can’t be matched in a hotel, motel, or Airbnb. 

Add to the delights of a delicious breakfast, the wealth of local knowledge about the area you have come to explore, how to prepare for your day ahead and the weather that might be in store. The best places to stop for a bite on your way or where to sneak a quick wine or gin tasting.  Your hosts are a source of endless tales and information to set you on a journey of discovery.

In addition to your hosts and their wealth of knowledge, other guests could be enjoying breakfast at the same time and are generally happy to share their travel stories, “must-see” places, and things to do further afield. An opportunity to meet some new acquaintances and get “the good oil” on road conditions, closures, costs of entry to some sites, and weather occurrences that may impact your journey, like snow. 

Breakfast at a traditional Bed and Breakfast is an experience one will remember for a long time and seek to enjoy time and time again. With that in mind, the recently formed “Tasmania’s Best Bed and Breakfast Trail” has taken the hard work out of hunting for the ideal place to stay and created a website with all the information you need at your fingertips. www.tbbbt.com.au

Properties on the trail are located around Tasmania in regional areas, near popular tourist locations, are of high quality with high review ratings, and operated by owners that are regular everyday Australians. 

Make sure you start your day with a fabulous breakfast at a traditional Bed and Breakfast – you just can’t beat it!
