A grilled cheese station would be an easy food option. Have a selection of nice breads and cheeses. Then just have a couple of panini presses. That would go well with the soups.

Bread or crackers, for both. Nutella is commonly served as a breakfast spread for breads in Europe. I also see in the photo that they have bananas there, which would also be nice.

They used to have a PB machine in the E club at ATL and the Peanut butter was really good. I was surprised people with peanut allergies didn't complain

BOSTON satellite club had a very tasty hot Salisbury steak and mashed potato offering when I visited on Jan 9.

Good to know. In the "main" SC in Boston recently, my choice of draft beer was Michelob Ultra...or Michelob Ultra. Opted for water, which has more taste

Valid...there's usually bread for toast, and especially at breakfast. I tend to take the cookies or brownie bites and just put it on them. Or since I love PB, I probably wouldn't be averse to just eating it plain.

Yep, it's been there for awhile. They had some A/C issues after the hurricane and brought that in while it was warm in the club for a week or so while fixing. Glad to see they've left it, always grab one after landing for walk to car.

Virgin Australia had this in the Perth club when I was there about 4 years ago. At least I think it was Perth.

I had a folded over cheese omelette thing at the ATL C SkyClub that was reminiscent of my old Hampton In. Brekkie days except it was not over cooked or dry and I had some toppings for it. It was nice to have warm eggs even if they came out of a bag.
MSP G SkyClub today Had decent chicken fajita meat which I’ve never seen before. Nice but the “warm” tortilla fell apart the moment I bit the into it.
The beers, however, were warm. Not “I like my beer really cold so this feels warm” warm but more like finding your half drunk beer from the night before taking a swig and going “oh here’s the beer I was drinking last night” warm

I miss the individually wrapped Tillamook cheese they used to have at most clubs. I am sure it was expensive and the packing a waste, but they were SO good (and easy to grab a few extra to take on a flight).

Also, has anyone noticed that they have removed the mocha option from the Starbucks machine. BOS, ATL, TPA and JFK all seemed (if memory serves me correctly) no longer had this option. A girl can dump a bunch of hot cocoa mix into a cappuccino, but it's not quite the same.

Keeping on the breakfast theme, it would be SO easy to add sliced meats and cheeses to the breakfast assortment. Ham, prosciutto, salami, etc. Very common in Euro hotels (JW Marriott in MEX had the best spread evah). A little meat, a little cheese, a little fresh fruit, a little pastry. Perfect cold breakfast that keeps on a line forever.

The Sheraton in PTY does a good job of this in the lounge. Salami, ham, turkey, salmon with caper, assortment of cheese and fruit. By the time I got to the made to order omelette I was full. This would definitely be a nice addition to the SkyClub
