There are those who roll out of bed, shower and maybe grab a quick croissant on the way out the door. Maybe the height of your bed makes rolling a potentially life-threatening maneuver and so you opt for a more careful and calculated dismount. We respect that decision. Maybe you’re the kind that doesn’t need a shower in the morning. No harm, no foul. We can still be friends. But if you’re the sort who makes a regular habit of forgoing morning sustenance altogether – boy have we got problems.
Much like everything else in a German’s world, breakfast is something rich with tradition. But let’s be honest for a minute. Just because we’ve done something a certain way for as long as anyone can remember doesn’t mean it isn’t a shitty way of doing things. Herein lies the problem with german breakfast. Germans can’t really be blamed if breakfast doesn’t hold an especially dear place in their hearts, because traditional german breakfast culture is, well, a bit bland. It’s no wonder why many opt for skipping. With bread as the centerpiece, the goal is to spread and place as many things on top of said bread as possible – more like a game than a sacred start to one’s day. Hear us out here: we mean no offense, but when the glorious possibilities of the morning meal are reduced to the humdrum tune of an open-faced cold cut sandwich, it’s time to reevaluate.
