Breakfast (café da manhã) consists of fruit and café com leite e pão com manteiga (coffee with milk and bread with butter). Cereal with milk, orange juice, fruit, toast, eggs and bacon, are part of the traditional breakfast.
Both lunch and dinner are full meals that may include Brazilian staple foods such as beans, rice, meat, fish, vegetables, potatoes, cereals, eggs, dairy, and fruit. Lunch is a light meal (e.g., a sandwich). Dinner is the important meal. Ordering take-out or eating out is common.
