What would you expect from a 44 dollar breakfast?

I doubt I've ever had a breakfast that cost over 15.. There was bacon, eggs, ham, steak, waffles, syrup, coffee, toast, napkins. Anyway, I seen this video and I began to wonder.

  • Yeah, I've never had a $44 breakfast, but I can almost imagine it. It would probably be the steak and egg dish at a very high-end place. Other than that, breakfast items are always pretty cheap and thus in my experience, even at the nicest places, breakfast tops out at around $30. Like I'm pretty sure I had a $27 omelette at the Viceroy in Santa Monica and breakfast was about that much at Redd in Napa. But even if you got an omelette that was topped with truffles or caviar and creme fraiche, I don't think it would hit $44.

    • You know, the post from @cheapshotbob made me consider a possibility. While it's not really "breakfast", high tea at the Peninsula in Los Angeles is $65. I mean, that's kind of like breakfast, right? Maybe not...

    • it could be , i never had that myself but thats high fr a tea you cna make yourself. but i always make my own things. but if its a aplce i have never been i guess you get your moneys worth if you have never been on a palce like that befre/

      you know your paying for the experience more than the food like how some places charge 80 dollars for a simple cheese burger fries and coke at a dance hall your paying for the entertainment more than you are the food.

  • This is just the tip of the iceberg. The government is well known for being extremely wasteful with their money. They spend considerably more than they should for just about everything they do.

    I don't really understand the $44 breakfast though. Generally government employees get a fixed per diem when they travel. It's quite generous. To my knowledge it's not broken down by lodging, meals, etc. It's just a total fixed amount.

    I have not worked for the government, nor gotten government per diem. But I've spent many months getting per diem in the private sector, which goes by the government rate and rules. Maybe this breakfast is some sort of "official" meeting, that is paid for by the agency rather than individuals. In that case it seems like it should be deducted from the individual's per diem since that's supposed to cover meals. Otherwise they'd be double dipping. Regardless of how it's charged, the price is outrageous.

    But really, this is nothing in the big picture. The waste in government is widespread across every agency. We need to bring back the Golden Fleece Award and give it the same kind of attention that Grammys, Oscars and all the other worthless awards get. But people are more interested in celebrity awards than the government wasting billions of dollars of taxpayers money.

  • While staying in Vegas, I walked into an all night bar. The sign on the wall said breakfast $44 and below that it said Handjobs $44. I asked the attractive girl behind the bar if she was the one who gave the handjobs and she said that she did. I said, well wash your hands and make me some breakfast

  • thats nothing i was at a fancy restaurant once it was my first time seeing how the other half enjoyed dinner i got 1 steak and some fries with a tea it was around 5 bucks and it also included a salad bar. it was good but i thought to myself i could cook this at home for like 12 bucks lol.

    but for the 44 dollar breakfast i would expect the service to be really good where you dont need to ask for anything. like refilling your cup of tea or bringing you a basket of biscuits when you get low and food that is filling and satisfying. so you dont go hungry later thats just what i see for an expensive breakfast.

    • But back to your original question - $44 breakfast. I think I'd expect some kind of enormous self service buffet, with stuff like lobster Thermidor, kidneys Tobago and other stuff that you never really eat for breakfast.

  • Hey, @coolbreeze Freeze, you left out the Waffles and the 3 glasses of OJ and also the Hot Cocoa with whipped top that flop. x
