What to eat for breakfast while travelling?

Start your day the right way with a great breakfast at CoDE Pod Hostels. Breakfast helps you stay healthy and gives you the energy you need to enjoy your trip even more. Here are a few tasty breakfast ideas for hungry backpackers to get through a morning when you are not at home.


Eating cereals for breakfast is a well-liked choice at a hostel because it is easy and fast. Most of the hostels provide the likes of corn flakes, granola, and other types of cereals. But if you are looking for ideas beyond this, we would recommend you try Oatmeal. Oats have a well-balanced nutritional composition containing good amounts of protein and fibre. Our fantastic breakfast buffet is available everyday from 8:00 am, you can make your own oatmeal with fresh milk. You can customise a healthy breakfast porridge to include your favourite add-ins and even to be gluten-free. Add a sprinkle of fresh fruits or nuts, heat it up in microwave on a cold day. Yummy.


Want something cool for breakfast? A good way to enjoy your healthy breakfast is to have the cereals with loads of toppings. Top with nuts, sliced banana and a spoonful of honey, mixing your favourite cereals together with creamy milk is so enjoyable. Stir in some other fresh fruits for colour and antioxidants. You can also choose the yogurt topped with muesli and fruit slices, it is a tasty combination.

British Toast

There are also many other choices. Fresh toast made of whole grains and warm it whenever you need it. Spread some marmalade, or top with Nutella or peanut butter, and even yogurt. That is an excellent way to have a quick breakfast if you are in a hurry to leave for the day trip. How about trying some British ways? – Baked beans on toast, if you want to get a bit fancy then add some cheese on top of it. Actually, it tastes great with a few glasses of milk, it is an option when you don’t want a sweet breakfast.

Are you a coffee drinker or a tea lover? Please help yourself to the warm drinks or fresh orange juice.

Fresh home-made Waffles at CoDE

We would like to introduce our home-made Waffles, and we prepare the waffle batter every day freshly. The most important thing is that, YOU CAN MAKE THEM BY YOURSELF!

Step 1: Open the waffle maker
Step 2: Pour the batter on the plate, in a spiral if you can
Step 3: Close the lid and wait

Beep beep beep… your waffle is ready! Watch your hand while opening the waffle maker, the steam escaping from around edges and the waffle is golden brown. Such a waste if you are not going to eat it right away! Let the Nutella melt on top with a fluffy inside and crispy corners. Warm, sweet, and melt in your mouth! It can be served hot with peanut butter, yoghurt, and fruit slices on top as well. It is all up to you!
