As another way to help you have a better start to your day while travelling, Holiday Inn Express® has rolled out their new Express Start® Breakfast Bar in Canada. The signature breakfast bar now features more than 30 items to choose from, including hot and fresh options, such as fluffy pancakes at the push of a button; freshly cooked bacon, eggs and sausage; and healthy alternatives, such as hard-boiled eggs, turkey sausage and fresh fruit, all available at 100+ Holiday Inn Express hotels in Canada.

Holiday Inn Express® Start® Breakfast Bar

Our team at Travel + Design had the chance to drop by the Holiday Inn Express Toronto Downtown to explore their new Express® Start® Breakfast Bar. The newly renovated property is a bright, open and colourful space that is an inviting place to stay within walking distance to some of Toronto’s best attractions. In addition to having a range of breakfast options to suit for guests to enjoy, their lobby is filled with a variety of seating options to choose from tables for a relaxing breakfast for two and technology equipped tables to facilitate your team breakfast meeting.

READIEST Breakfast Challenge Canada

To celebrate Holiday Inn Express®  challenged two Canadian champions and hockey-rivals—Doug Gilmour and Guy Carbonneau—to create the ultimate breakfast creation in the READIEST Breakfast Challenge Canada. In a spirited Toronto versus Montreal showdown, Gilmour and Carbonneau had three minutes to create their game-winning breakfast using only ingredients available at the Holiday Inn Express brand’s Express Start Breakfast bar.

Ultimately, Carbonneau was crowned the winner with his “Power Play Pancake Cup,” made with a fluffy pancake cone filled with fresh scrambled eggs and sausage. This bested Gilmour’s “Gloves Off Breakfast Sandwich,” a biscuit topped with strawberry jam, a sausage patty, scrambled eggs and cream cheese.
