I LOVE BREAKFAST! I love cooking breakfast. I love going out for breakfast. I love starting the day with a great big meal. I love getting up early and getting a jump on the day. I love all things breakfast. As I’ve mentioned before we had breakfast foods (at lunch time) for our wedding.
So when I saw that QT Gold Coast served up a spectacular buffet breakfast at the stunning Bazaar restaurant, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to enjoy a long lazy breakfast.
Bazaar opens for breakfast at 6:30am, which is perfect for early birds like me (it also allows for optimal eating time) and finishes at 10:30am. The restaurant is also open for dinner from 5:30-9pm and Sunday lunch.My mouth hit the floor when I walked in. The options were endless and I wasn’t sure where to start. On your first visit, you are guided in by a hostess who explains what the options are, the lady who walked me in had all the questions about ProBlogger Event and even said she would love to go next year.
Feeling a little daunted and not being sure where to start, I settled on fruit and yoghurt for my first course of many. I was always taught to start with healthy options (thanks Mum).I’ve never understood how people could go to an amazing buffet breakfast like this and get cereal, until Tamsin (Editor-in-Chief of Kiki and Tea) got Fruit Loops! But I avoided this section in favour of bacon and hash browns.Miniature pastries tempted me from when I first entered Bazaar Restaurant but sadly they never made their way onto my plate.
My first course was fruit and muesli, second was bacon, scrambled eggs, crispy hash browns and some amazing poached mushrooms (no photo sadly) and my third was bircher muesli with julienne apple. Bircher muesli always reminds me of Christmas or camping, funny combination I know, but these perfect small serves were a great grease sponge for the preceding course. Everything about the QT Gold Coast was just a little quirky and I love love love the bottles that the juices were served in. I helped myself to multiple various juices throughout my multi course breakfast. As I said at the start, the options were endless, and some sections that I didn’t quite get to were the Asian style miso soup station and the Scandinavian style cold meat and pickles station.
What’s your favourite meal of the day? Do you love a buffet breakfast?
