JFK (DEATH PHOTO) breakfast was last meal; soft-boiled eggs, bacon, toast. John F. Kennedy never made it to his 1 pm lunch appointment in Dallas—he was assassinated just 30 minutes earlier as his motorcade entered Delaney Plaza—but at least he went out on a full stomach.

On the morning of November 22, 1963, Kennedy was served coffee, orange juice, two eggs (soft-boiled at five minutes) and toast with marmalade on the side.

The food was prepared and served by Otto Druhe, the executive chef at the Hilton Fort Worth, the hotel JFK and First Lady Jacqueline were staying before leaving the next morning for Dallas.

Kennedy’s last meal (and final speech) took place in the Crystal Ballroom, where 2,000 supporters joined them for breakfast. Go here for more including the death photo.
