BREAKFAST still seems to be the most controversial meal of the day when it comes to the business traveller. We”ve lost track of the airlines and their on/off philosophy but the railway people do seem to know what people want, and breakfast is definite. Train operator Midland Mainline is championing breakfast as the most important meal of the day. The company, whose London services leave from St Pancras, have introduced its very own Breakfast Ambassadors. The idea is to get to grips with a new menu where the choice has transformed from a traditional breakfast grill and pre-packed bacon butties to almost 20 options, with all hot dishes freshly cooked on board. The ”Full Works” combines a ”Healthy Option” of citrus fruits, cereals and probiotic yoghurt with the Great British ” bacon, egg and the trimmings ” or smoked salmon, or kippers. Alternatively, diners can now enjoy the ”Healthy Option”, a vegetarian grill, salmon or kippers, as individual choices. In addition, Midland Mainline has introduced bacon and sausage baguettes, freshly cooked on board, and toast served on its own or with scrambled eggs. And there”s a new range of breakfast snacks including yoghurts, smoothies, tropical fruit salad, cereal bars, croissants and Danish pastries. Breakfast baguettes and snacks are served at seat in first class and are available to all passengers from the mm”s bar.
