Breakfast at Hotel Rival
When we wanted to take a mini-vacation in our own city, we got a lot of recommendations for various hotels. Our wishes were simple - we wanted a nice, clean room - obviously - and an absolutely great breakfast. That was it. After considering many options, we decided on Hotel Rival, which is a small-ish designer hotel owned by Benny Andersson of ABBA.
And the breakfast was well, well, well worth it. In addition to all the usual stuff, they had a short-order cook, so I asked for French Toast, and Per for a large fry-up with eggs, mushrooms, toast and sausage. And great coffee latte, too.
That would have been well enough, but I couldn't help sampling some of the baked goods. Excellent buttery, flaky croissants! And you don't often see macarons on a breakfast buffet, so I felt compelled to sample those. Suffice to say, I was full all day after this. Two thumbs up!
Ps - don't forget about the HP-sauce giveaway!
