Sorry, dear the link to the "second breakfast" is currently not working because of the protest.
I was trying to find the blog I posted mentioning "second breakfast" with your comment to reply properly but my brain is hurting trying to remember, so I thought I'll just create a blog about it. This post might be all over the place because I can't focus with things going on around here but I've been wanting to reply to you for sooo long, so I'll do this now even if it's a rush and sloppy. :)
Second breakfast is typical in Europe. If I remember how wiki explained it, it's almost like the equivalent of "brunch".
But not really. Maybe I remember it also incorrectly...
I don't remember having second breakfasts in the Philippines. We call "snacks in between", merienda but I still feel "snack" is not an appropriate translation. Some in the Philippines might call "second breakfasts" merienda but it won't fit somehow.
I think it's because just with anything different in each country, there is this emotional meaning to every word. For example "second breakfast" in Germany it's literally translated to Zweites Fruehstueck, while in England I read it's called "elevenses".
Hmmm, it's normal here for people to eat a "second breakfast" at around 9-10 am (in Germany it was until 11 am, from my experience). Almost all go to school, or/and work very early, and either eat the "regular" breakfast, and the second is taken at school or at their placeof work or wherever you are.
Some restaurants can serve breakfast here until 2 pm. Or where I used to live in Germany, there is a restaurant that served "breakfast" 24 hours. It's situated at an area where there where a lot of people working in shifts.
I love second breakfast because just like in Germany, Holland has a lot of choice savoury second breakfast. They eat here "sweet first breakfast" mostly (also the same in Germany, and Ireland, the latter is where my youngest brother and his family works and lives) composed of bread, jam, chocolate in different forms (I'll create a post about breakfast in the Netherlands next time).
Oooh, now I found another link while searching for some keywords about breakfast in Germany.
Hope this link to second breakfast lends much clarity to what I wrote. Enjoy! (I liked reading it because it brings back good yummeeey memories. lol)
