My mother always told me that breakfast was the most important meal of the day.  What? Your mom said that too?  Well, if you travel much you know that a good breakfast can make all the difference.  Eat a great breakfast and you have the energy for the adventures that lie ahead.  A bad breakfast – or skip it completely – and you may find yourself struggling.

Sometimes it’s easy to find a good breakfast while you are on the road.  If you are lucky, your hotel may include a great breakfast as part of the tariff ( for example you can read a related article “Breakfast in Bagan“).  But if your hotel offers no breakfast, or if you are staying in a short term apartment rental or an Air BnB, then you will have to venture out and discover your own breakfast  But I recommend you do so – it’s worth the effort and your day will go much more smoothly.   You can take my mom’s word for that.

While traveling through Spain I discovered a great place for breakfast in Valencia.  Okay, to be completely honest it was recommended to me by a local.  It turned out to be a great place.  Never hurts to ask for recommendations folks.

La Mas Bonita Pataconia (actually there are two restaurants by the  name La Mas Bonita in Valencia –  the other is La Mas Bonita Ruzafa) is located on the beach which is a wonderful location for a nice liesurely breakfast.

Start out with some nice juice and a coffee ……………….

Then maybe a nice bowl of fresh fruit………

And then the piece de resistance – for me at least – a fine hearty breakfast including eggs, potatoes, pancakes and bacon.  This fine breakfast is know as the “Pataconia Beach” on the La Mas Bonita menu.   Excellent if I do say so myself.

La Mas Bonita has three dining areas from which you can choose.  They have inside seating and a very nice interior open air courtyard in the rear.  Out front there is nation dining with a view

 Now isn’t this a nice breakfast view?  Palm trees, blue skies, beach – it really doesn’t get much better than this.

After breakfast a bit of exercise might be in order.  How about a nice walk along that gorgeous beach?   Perfect!
