Comparing Breakfast Traditions

Typical German Breakfast

In Germany, the morning spread often includes freshly baked bread rolls, various types of cold cuts like ham and salami, cheeses, and soft-boiled or scrambled eggs. Along with a collection of jams, honey and creamy butter add a touch of sweetness to the meal.

You might also find Müsli, yogurt, and seasonal fruit for those who prefer a lighter option. To wash it all down, Germans often enjoy a cup of strong coffee or my favourite a pot of fresh peppermint tea. For a traditional German breakfast in Berlin go to Anna Blume cafe.

This traditional breakfast captures the essence of German cuisine – hearty, wholesome, and built on quality ingredients.

The not-so-traditional but increasingly popular German breakfast item is pfannkuchen or pancakes. Expect to find pancakes on every breakfast and lunch menu in the city!

Irish Breakfast vs English Breakfast

An Irish breakfast, often referred to as a “Full Irish,” boasts a hearty spread that includes sausages, rashers (bacon), black and white puddings, eggs, tomatoes, and baked beans. It’s a robust and savoury affair.

On the other side of the Channel, the English breakfast, known as the “Full English,” takes center stage with similar components like bacon, eggs, sausages, and tomatoes, but it may also feature mushrooms, fried bread, and hash browns or baked beans. It’s a hearty, no-nonsense breakfast that provides the perfect fuel for a busy day.

American Breakfast vs English Breakfast

The American breakfast tends to lean towards a sweeter palette with staples like pancakes, waffles, and syrup, along with scrambled or fried eggs, bacon or sausage, and possibly a side of hash browns.

English breakfast vs American breakfast vs Irish breakfast are all very similar in my opinion. I personally love a German breakfast whether I’m in Germany or not. Even as a vegetarian, I can’t say no to local cheese, topped with marmalade on a freshly baked Brötchen (or bun), along with the Müsli, yogurt, and seasonal fruit.

As a Holidaymaker

On weekends, especially Sundays in Berlin, Berliners embrace the leisurely art of brunch with enthusiasm. While celebrating their diverse culinary scene, it’s intriguing to note that Berliners also have a soft spot for the iconic English breakfast.

While Berlin might not boast an extensive number of English breakfast restaurants, the select few available are worth seeking out and make Berlin worth visiting!
