Traditional Spanish Breakfast

What does the term „traditional Spanish breakfast“ mean? Those of you who have already been to Spain probably noticed that the Spanish have their own idea of a normal breakfast.

While walking through the streets you will find a lot of signs with the writing “desayuno” (breakfast).

A lot of Spaniards have their quick and easy breakfast in one of the countless tapas bars or cafés. These two forms of breakfast are the most common ones:

Tostada con Café leche y Zumo de Naranja - Toast with Milk coffee and Orange juice

Although this breakfast is likely to be adapted with Serrano ham, salami, cheese etc. most of the Spaniards prefer the simple form: A roasted bread with olive oil, tomatos, fresh squeezed orange juice and of course, a coffee.

But not only the Spanish love this kind of breakfast, also the “Spanish-by-choice”, exchange students and tourists appreciate the Spanish form of a breakfast. It is healthy, cheap and easy to prepare.

Although Spain has been affected a lot by the economic crisis and the effects can still be felt nowadays, most of the Spanish are willing to invest 2,50 to 3,50 Euros on a daily basis for a healthy breakfast.
