This is an ad for the Eurostar train service that was running on the Continent.  It doesn’t make much sense, until you know that in Britan, beans are considered breakfast food. In fact, most cafes that serve breakfast or brunch have a “add beans to any breakfast for £1!” line on the menu.

  1. Astrid,
    When I was a kid, my parents had some older friends who had a camp up on Lake Winnipesaukee in NH. We’d go up for the weekend and my mother used to bring her Boston Bean Pot for Saturday night hot dogs and beans there. She always had to be sure to make the full pot, because the next morning the host husband always wanted baked beans for breakfast along with the bacon and eggs. At least this was somewhat common amongst New Englanders in the last century, so they might have gotten that habit from Mother England, who knows. . . .
