Champagne breakfast

Champagne breakfast
Champagne breakfast‎

A champagne breakfast is a breakfast served with champagne or sparkling wine. It is a new concept in some countries [1] and is not typical of the role of a breakfast.

It may be part of any day or outing considered particularly luxurious or indulgent. The accompanying breakfast is sometimes of a similarly high standard [2] and include rich foods such as salmon, caviar, [3] chocolate or pastries, which would not ordinarily be eaten at breakfast[4] or more courses.[5] At fashionable restaurants the breakfast can cost £4,000 or more. [6] Instead of as a formal meal the breakfast can be given to the recipient in a basket or hamper.



As part of a day where scheduled activities have been arranged, the breakfast may be served early in the day, or even at sunrise.[7] The breakfast may be as part of a cruise or tour.[8][9] It can be a part of honeymooning couple's itinerary,[10] or stay at a hotel, when it may be delivered to the couple in bed. This can also be a part of Valentine's day or a Valentine's Day holiday package.[11][12]


The breakfast can be delivered or served to someone as part of any treat acknowledging the person's worth, such as Mother's day.[13] or as a celebration of an event or achievement.[14] A champagne breakfast was even fed to Red Marauder when the horse won the Grand National.[15] It may be a tradition at some colleges for graduation,[16] such as Wells College. People may be awarded a Champagne breakfast as part of winning a competition. [17]

Business or charity

The breakfast may be hosted as a means of attracting people for the launch of a business, or a charity fundraiser.[18][19]
