There are so many reasons to go out for breakfast or brunch, especially now…catching up with a friend, birthdays, meetings, wedding showers, after church, or just because.
Breakfast basics like bacon, eggs, pancakes, and toast are all important menu foundations, but what does it take to be the breakfast spot that everyone is talking about?
Here are a few ideas to differentiate your menu with specialties most customers can’t make at home and will love showing off on social media.
Serve the Unexpected
Waffles are so wonderful. A rich and fluffy inside surrounded by crispy, golden brown valleys flowing with delicious butter, syrup, or warm fruit compote can tempt even the savory breakfast crowd.
Topped with decadent nuts, berries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar, they’re a sweet breakfast lover’s dream.
Why not treat your waffle aficionados to an unexpected and whimsical waffle experience with bubble waffles?
The Hatco/Krampouz KWM18-BU Electric Bubble Waffle Maker is the perfect tool to expand your menu with bubble waffles for breakfast or rolled into a cone and topped with a variety of toppings for dessert or savory wraps.
With precise temperature control adjustable from 120°F to 570°F and even heat distribution for consistent cooking and browning, your waffles will turn out golden and gorgeous every time. The Easy Clean System allows for instant removal of the waffle plates making for quick and hassle-free clean-up.
Add International Flair
As the story goes, the crepe was invented by accident in 13th century Brittany, France, when a home cook spilled some porridge onto a flat, hot cooktop. Not wanting it to go to waste, after the porridge was cooked through, she ate it and found it to be quite delicious!
After 1,000 years of experimentation, these versatile, ultra-thin pancakes can be made with readily-available kitchen staples and filled with everything from sweet custards, nut butters, and berries to savory ingredients like mushrooms, herbs, cheese, eggs, seafood, and chicken.
The Hatco/Krampouz KCME Electric Crepe Maker provides the ideal cooking surface to create consistently-perfect, quality crepes.
Coiled and insulated heating elements create the all-important, even heat distribution across the surface of the plate needed for consistent cooking. An adjustable thermostatic control with a temperature range of 120°F to 570°F gives you the flexibility to cook batters of varying consistencies and ingredients.
Make Sauces Work to Your Advantage
Cold syrup or sauce can bring down hot food temperature in a hurry, and breakfast items are already notorious for losing heat in record time. Heating sauce prior to topping or serving contributes to better serving temperature, food quality, and the overall dining experience.
The Hatco/Krampouz KSW Electric Sauce Warmer keeps bottles of sauces and hot toppings toasty warm and ready for use. Offered in 1, 2, and 3 bottle sizes, each sauce warmer comes with a matching number of 3-valve sauce bottles. Bottles protect sauce from contamination and evaporation while making dispensing clean and easy.
Adjustable thermostatic control from 105°F-195°F holds syrups and a variety of sweet and savory sauces at the ideal temperature, flavor, and consistency.
Cook Every Menu Item to Perfection
Offering a diverse breakfast menu doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality or invest in multiple pieces of cooking equipment. The Wood Stone Plancha Griddle gives you the power to support the breadth of your menu and do more in less space with adjustable temperatures from 150°- 650° F (Gas models) and 300°- 700° F (Electric model).
This high performance alternative to both a standard flat top griddle and a gas charbroiler was designed to support a range of cooking temperatures at the same time.
With thermostatically controlled and individually adjustable zones, this Plancha Griddle can cook delicate food at a low temperature in one zone while searing in another. Steak and eggs, anyone?
Pour on the Premium Coffees
The last two years have increased home-based coffee drinking by necessity. Those who enjoy specialty coffees, but don’t have the equipment to make their favorite latte, espresso, or cappuccino at home, are ready to treat themselves.
The fact that specialty coffees can yield 10-15% higher profits than a regular cup of coffee due to their higher price tag and only a slightly higher cost of goods makes them worth considering.
The Crem Unity1 is a fully automatic coffee machine that creates barista-quality, specialty coffees at the push of a button. With minimal training, your staff will be able to offer a variety of pre-programmed coffee favorites to every guest, any time of day. Watch a demonstration here.
