here are the "levels" as I see them along with my personal habits:
1) Buffet or breakfast with eggs to order and usually has a lox area. – I’ll eat here. I typically rise no later then 4 am but if I’m late and they’ve served any more than 2-3 people, I skip the buffet and grab an omelet cto.
2) Buffet with waffle iron. – I tend to skip these but might grab a waffle if I’m the first one in, and then go get some decent coffee. The place needs to be spotless though.
3) Microwave and toaster plus cold cereal. – I skip it and go find some good coffee.
Very seldom do I travel without bringing my own coffee but my wife travels with me so she handles the details like that.
