Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you shouldn’t be afraid to spend a little money on it. Or in this case, a lot of money. Here are some of the most expensive breakfasts from around the world…

It featured a croissant, hand-decorated with edible gold and diamonds, Bar le Duc hand-seeded red currant jam, a cup of Kopi Luwak coffee, and the pièce de résistance — a $32,178 Chambord and champagne cocktail.

The $235 Bacon Bling sandwich served at Tangberry’s cafe in Cheltenham, England includes eggs, a “rare breed bacon”, black truffles, truffle oil, gold leaf, gold dust, and saffron. The World Record Academy honored it with the title of world’s most expensive bacon sandwich.
