These breakfast spreads are food’s way of saying ‘VERY good morning’

Behold what a difference a good breakfast can make.

Whether you're an early bird, a night owl or some indeterminate bird species in between, there's no better way to start your day than with a good breakfast. In the case of these amazing platters, however, breakfast is more than an important meal – it's practically an art form. And since September is Better Breakfast Month, you've got all the motivation you need. Here are seven photos of delicious breakfasts around the world that put your cold cereal and lukewarm coffee to shame.

This small neighborhood cafe in London, called Villa d'Aversa, sure does turn out a lovely morning meal, dotted with fresh avocado and tomatoes, rustic bread and a light helping of meats. It might not be the traditional English breakfast (no baked beans!), but we'll happily oblige.

For such a tiny country, Luxembourg certainly packs a punch with its larger-than-life breakfast. Guests at the NH Hotel actually wake up to this, an elaborate assortment of pastries, pies, breads, fruits and salads. We wonder what dinner looks like ...

It's no wonder this restaurant means "Golden River" in Cambodia; its breakfast is a seemingly endless, utterly elegant stream of international dishes as well as made-to-order omelets and noodle soups. It's conveniently located inside the Tara Angkor Hotel, a resort that's considered one of the jewels of Siem Reap's hospitality sector.

They call this the Godfather Benedict: a poached egg atop layers of prosciutto, tomato and arugula pesto, drizzled – er, more like slathered – in rich hollaindaise. It's an offer we can't refuse.
