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....

A "Continental Breakfast" is pretty much as you described. I would sub the sweets with fresh seasonal fruit, and perhaps incorporate an egg dish. Is there a nutritionaist to consult with re the menu?
Crustless quiche (& fresh fruit) is another way to go.
