Specifically a small B&B as opposed to a hotel.
Which/how many options would you expect?
Asking for a friend.

I've just spent a week walking, staying in a different B&B each night.
Both the quality of the rooms and the food were variable, but they all offered much more choice than I expected.
The least choice was:
- full English or your choices of the component parts, eggs cooked as you
- Smoked haddock
Plus cereals, toast, fruit, yogurt
One offered a huge choice
- smoked salmon and scrambled eggs
- all the egg options on toast
- Eggs benedict
- breakfast burrito
- Full English/vegetarian alternative
- French toast with avocado, bacon and egg
- porridge plain, with raspberries and almonds or with blueberries and pecans
Plus cereals, fruit, yogurt etc and that's what I can remember.

She's been debating whether to send guests to the cafe opposite with a voucher instead because variety seems to be their main concern. Also complaints that the pastries are not fresh.(They're heat from frozen but good quality)

She does cater for allergies too but she'll buy them specifically for that person/persons and ask which milks etc are most suitable. This is due to waste but also because vegans might like soya or oat milk milk but someone with soya allergies might need oat or another option.
I think it's just a peril of the business. There's always going to be some who expect more than is feasible from a small B&B. It's just that she's had a run of them.
