Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and when you’re on vacation in Turks and Caicos, you’ll want to fill up your tank with some tasty delights to charge your energy for an awesome day. If you’re signing up for a five-star resort your hotel will usually come with a full hot (American-style) breakfast in Turks and Caicos. If you’re at a four-star, you’ll usually receive a continental breakfast that does the trick quite well. Or you can choose to venture out to other restaurants and try the breakfast foods as you watch the sun rise up from beneath the water.
American VS Continental Breakfast in Turks and Caicos
The difference between American and Continental breakfasts may require an explanation. American-style indicates a hot meal that usually includes eggs, bacon and sausage, pancakes and syrup, and your cereals and fruit juices. Continental, on the other hand, refers to the more simple breakfast of pastries and rolls, as well as cheeses and meats. Not to confuse things, an “English” breakfast is a full hot breakfast with boiled eggs, grilled fish, porridge, fried mushrooms and tomatoes, and tea and coffee. While Turks and Caicos is a British colony where vehicles drive on the left side of the road, you’ll find far more American breakfasts than English breakfasts. You’ll also use American dollars to pay and not British sterling.
Far be it for Turks and Caicos to be culturally restrictive, however, as you can do your own breakfast in whatever style you like! Swahili breakfast, Estonian breakfast, French breakfast… Head on down to the local bakery and grab yourself a freshly baked baguette and some tasty brie cheese imported in from France. Load up on some fresh fruit from the market, mangos and papayas, and do it DIY-style. Take matters of the first meal of the day into your own capable hands and whip something up in your hotel room. Chop up a little fruit salad, make a little coffee, and dine on your own patio with the waves of the ocean serenading your meal.
