Great Breakfast Views of the World by david.flintham on 12 August 2005 2:02pm
 
Have recently re-watched MP's "Confessions of a Trainspotter" (Great Railway Journeys of the World).

He considers the view from the Kyle of Lochalsh Hotel to be one of the Great Breakfast views of the World.

Would anyone care to add their own to this?

I would suggest the view from the resturant at the Hilltop Hotel, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, USA has to be up there.

off the back porch of my brother's vacation home in Prospect Harbor, Maine.
Right on the ocean. We once saw dolphins swiiming and breaching in the bay as we sipped our tea. Best sunrise view too.

Sigh. I wanna go back there now!

The Maine Coast is great (Acadia National Park) and I've seen the view in Harpers Ferry. A great view in Southern Arizona is just sitting in the backyard looking at the light off the four mountain ranges. The Catalinas to the North, Rincons to the East, Santa Rita's to the South and the Tucson Mountains to the West. The "
A" on top of A Mountain lights up in the Sunrise.

I've been to that restaurant, David. It's a beautiful view in autumn, but I wouldn't classify it as a top scenic outlook. But to each his own.

Mike, I agree. Acadia is gorgeous, in every direction and at every bend of the coastline.

Atop Mont Blanc and Zurs in the Italian Alps in winter . But then, I'm an alpine mountain lover and have ascended many peaks to ski or simply for the view. Can't remember them all, but every one was great! Sometimes I would take a pastry and something to drink in my ski clothes. or just sip hot choccie from the mt-top hut or tea room. Speaking of tea houses, how about Berchtesgarten, Germany?????? WOW!!!!!!

My hotel room overlooking Lake Lucerne with Mt. Pilatus and other distant mountains was really lovely too. And also the Bernese Pass. (I carry food a lot!)

And last but not least was the view of the Caribbean and many other islands in the BVI's (Tortola) from our beach-front room.

Room service breakfast in my room at the Macchu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, overlooking (actually, underlooking would be a more appropriate word) one of the most astonishing places I have seen.

Makes me misty-eyed just at the thought of it.

that sounds wonderful, JF.

The view from the front of the Hotel Ca'Formenta in Venice, where you can eat your breakfast gazing out over the lagoon, with the doge's palace around the curve of the waterfront & all the island dotted around in the most glorious setting. I didn't want to leave.

Yeah, Kaz. Next month, not next year!
Plans changed and our entire 2 weeks will be in Scotland.

Believe it or not, the best breakfast view I've had while traveling was at a teeny-tiny cafe a few blocks from St Paul's in London. At 8 a.m., I sat outside savoring a calorie-laden, cholesterol-packed breakfast that would make a doctor screech in horror and watched the City hustle on its way to work, smug in the knowledge that I had nowhere to go but where I wanted.

People-watching really should be declared an Olympic sport <G>.

The dinner view was outside a small restaurant within clear sight of the Eiffel Tower just before the sun dipped below the horizon. The meal was ho-hum, but the view was fabulous.
