Should We Stay at the Hotel that Provides an American Breakfast an English Breakfast or a Continental Breakfast?

I never realized there were so many choices.

American Breakfast: A hotel breakfast that includes most or all of the following: two eggs (fried or poached), sliced bacon or sausages, sliced bread or toast with jam/jelly/butter, pancakes with syrup, cornflakes or other cereal, coffee/tea, orange/grapefruit juice.

English Breakfast: Traditional breakfast (also called full breakfast, and served in inns or restaurants) may include cereals, porridge or stewed prunes, melon, yogurt, boiled eggs or bacon and eggs, grilled fish, sausages, grilled or fried mushrooms or tomatoes with fried bread, followed by toasted bread and marmalade and tea or coffee. Modern English breakfast (served in hotels or motels) may include cereals, bacon and eggs, toasted bread and marmalade with tea or coffee.

Continental Breakfast: A hotel breakfast that may include sliced bread with butter/jam/honey, cheese, meat, croissants, pastries, rolls, fruit juice and various hot beverages. It is served commonly in the continental Europe, North America, and elsewhere, as opposed to the English breakfast served commonly in the UK.

I vote for the English breakfast.

English breakfast? Beware of black pudding! (In Ireland, white pudding).

Licia - I have never had blood sausage (black pudding) or oatmeal sausage (white pudding). White sounds like a safer choice.

I would vote for the English breakfast, too. Although carbo-loaded, it's still nutritious and not as fattening as American styles. And, look at all the choices in comparison- why wouldn't you?
