On Airport Breakfasts

Eating breakfast at airports is a hit-or-miss affair. The majority of airports have very limited options, notably carb-heavy, for travelers who arrive for early morning flights.

A happy exception to this rule is Seattle. I recently ate breakfast at Anbthony's, located in the central hall at SEA. My veggie omelet was very fluffy; the home fries gave the perfect balance of carmelization and creamy centers; and the blueberry coffee cake was a great.

Now consider my sad little morning repast at San Jose's airport. I did arrive a little earlier to SJC but I saw no indication that my options would have been substantially better an hour later. Why so many minimal, not-so-good breakfasts at airports? Isn't breakfast The Most Important Meal of the Day? Am I the only person who wants a balanced morning meal with protein as well as carbohydrates? Do all those road warriors who crowd the hotel gyms at 6 AM put up with these unhealthy breakfasts? Or do they perhaps carry stashes of soylent green in their laptop bags?
