The Colonial's Best Breakfast Dishes
Picture this: you’ve woken up in your Tolcarne room, with views of the beach and the sea breeze seeping in through the window.
Then, you head down to our on-site restaurant, The Colonial, for a delicious, nutritious breakfast to start the day. The most important meal, we serve all our breakfasts with fresh and locally-sourced ingredients. This summer, here are our favourite picks from the breakfast menu:
1. Full Cornish Breakfast
It goes without saying, this one is a must-try.
A Cornish spin on the Full English, we’re frying up two bacon rashers, sausage, hash browns, baked beans, mushroom and cherry vine tomatoes. Served with your choice of white or brown toast and either poached, fried or scrambled egg. Plus, add extra items for just £1 each!

At The Colonial, we grill our kipper with butter and tomato, served with a choice of brown or

4. Eggs of Choice
Another breakfast staple, we’ll make our eggs just how you like them.

always served with hollandaise. Or, opt for smashed avocado and poached eggs on a base of
sourdough, seasoned with chilli and lime.
If you prefer scrambled to poached, don’t worry – we’re also ready to whip up some scrambled
eggs and salmon, topped with chives.
Though not technically a breakfast meal, we couldn’t complete this list without an honourable
mention for the drinks menu.
Start the day with a caffeine boost and opt for anything from an espresso, to a flat white, to a pot

Marys and Prosecco, it’s the perfect opportunity to treat yourself this summer!
There you have it – our top breakfast picks! We look forward to welcoming you to The Colonial this summer, helping you start your day with a smile.
