I serve breakfast at 9am. It is a mixture of fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, pastries & cereal. Plus a couple of cooked options including a “Full Cornish”. It says in my listing, in at least 2 places, that breakfast is served at 9am, but I am happy to do it a little earlier or later with a bit of notice. You can come down at 9:15 or even 9:30, I am not a time maniac!
So, young couple staying, yesterday was their first brekkie. They came down at 9:30 and just had the cold buffet. Seemed very nice we chatted blah blah. Yesterday I had another couple arrive, so full house now. This morning the new couple came down at around 9 and I made them both full cooked, and we chatted and they are also super nice. By 9:45 still no sign of the other guests. By 10 o’clock I start to clear everything away and do the dishes. The new couple have already finished and gone upstairs to get ready for their day. At 10:15, the young couple come down and ask for full cooked breakfast. I told them sorry, kitchen is cleaned but you can help yourself to fruit salad, and all the rest. There was still tea and coffee left.
Would you have made them cooked? Should people realise that hosts may have things to do, people to see and cannot hang about for the entire morning waiting for them? Do they not understand that the washing up has to be done and the kitchen completely cleaned after breakfast?
