Ballooning Champagne Breakfast
Chelo’s Restaurant at Mercure Resort Gold Coast is the location for your delicious champagne breakfast.We sit outside under the umbrellas overlooking the lake and the golf course – it’s a lovely setting and the perfect place to sit back and savour your balloon flight experience. Enjoy a wonderful buffet breakfast on Sunday or a freshly cooked meal ordered from the menu on other weekdays.
Choose their special fresh fruit platter and cereal or tuck into hearty eggs and bacon cooked in different ways. Ample toast & preserves is served and a vegetarian menu is also available. Breakfast is accompanied by bottomless champagne and/or orange juice – a tradition of ballooning. No-one goes away hungry
Your pilot and balloon crew will join you during breakfast and they’ll pass around photograph albums showing ballooning around the world. You’ll also be able to view the in-flight pictures that were taken during your flight on our laptop computer.
The pictures can be downloaded onto a CD and purchased for $25.
Breakfast is also the time for the presentation of Flight Certificate ceremony, which includes the story of the history of ballooning and why champagne is served after each balloon flight – lots of fun and informative. The ceremony concludes with the blessing of all the new “balloonatics” followed by presentation of your personalised flight certificate.
