But dinner is dinner, a meal at which not so much to eat — it becomes difficult to eat much at it as you grow older — as to drink, to talk, to flirt, to discuss, to rejoice "at the closing of the day". I do not think anything serious should be done after it, as nothing should before breakfast.george saintsbury

All hell has broken loose. I admit our Russian is limited, but we can say hello, come in, you are beautiful, oh no you don't. … So in our pride we ordered for breakfast an omelet, toast and coffee and what has just arrived is a tomato salad with onions, a dish of pickles, a big slice of watermelon and two bottles of cream soda. Something has slipped badly.john steinbeck
And behind their frail partitions Business women lie and soak, Seeing through the draughty skylight Flying clouds and railway smoke. Rest you there, poor unbelov'd ones, Lap your loneliness in heat, All too soon the tiny breakfast, Trolley-bus and windy street!john betjeman

Elder ladies, up earlier, had coffee before; For themselves they've prepared now a tasty encore, A concoction from heated, with cream thickened, beer, In which curds, densely floating, of cream cheese appear. For men there's a choice of smoked meats on a platter: There is tongue , savouries, sausage , and half-geese well fattened, All first-rate, all by secret house recipe cured, Long in juniper smoke in the chimney matured, At the end, as the last course, 'zrazy' were served. Thuswise was in the Judge's house breakfast observed.
