Continental Breakfast

I need your help.

I manage a independent senior housing community 55+ for which we offer a free continental breakfast 5 days a week. When we opened 3 years ago it was pretty amazing, but the cost got out of control and we are now offering coffee, tea, cold and hot cereals and sweets.

I am not sure if it is possible to do, but I have a budget of $500 per month for food items, coffee / tea is on its own budget. So, $500 for breakfast food. We serve about 30 to 40 people a day, Monday through Friday. Is it possible to provide an EASY to prepare continental breakfast with that budget and head count?

We have a nice kitchen, storage, but want something fast to prepare, but is not just a pile of donuts. I am not a cook, just trying to find something better than pastries.

Thanks you for your help....

Egg dishes were the first thing to come to my mind. Scrambled is typical but hard boiled also. Hardboiled could be served cold as is or cut in half and topped with any number of things for a chafing dish. They can be cooked well in advance for use as needed.
