What is Second Breakfast?
"Second breakfast (or Zweites Frühstück, Drugie śniadanie) is a meal eaten after breakfast, but before lunch. It is traditional in Bavaria, and in Poland. In Bavaria
(Bavarian Breakfast) or Poland, special dishes are made exclusively to be eaten during second breakfast. In Vienna, Austria the Second Breakfast is referred to as Jause. It is typical to eat four to five meals a day in these locations."

"The second breakfast is typically a lighter meal or snack eaten around 10:30 in the morning. It consists of coffee, pastries such as monkey bread (sticky bun recipe) and the like, or some sausages. The typical sausage is a white sausage (pictured above), Weißwurst, which is considered the specialty of Munich. The sausage is prepared during the early morning to serve during the second breakfast. It is served with pretzels, sweet mustard, and wheat beer. The meal is roughly similar in concept to the British elevenses, though elevenses is little more than a colloquial term for a mid morning snack. In Poland second breakfast usually consists of some snacks like sandwiches, or pastries, but may consist of light dessert type dishes like chocolate pudding or kisiel."

Monkey bread is also called Hungarian coffee cake, golden crown, pinch-me cake and bubbleloaf, is a sticky, gooey pastry served as a breakfast treat.

In J. R. R. Tolkien's book The Hobbit, the hero, Bilbo Baggins, eats a second breakfast. In the preface to The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien mentions that Hobbits prefer to eat seven meals a day. In the film adaptation of The Fellowship of the Ring one of the hobbits, Pippin, references second breakfast in a line of dialogue.

In Thomas Mann's book The Magic Mountain, frequent and detailed references are made to second breakfasts. Beer is served along with "cold cuts on toast". Sometimes food from the first breakfast appears again such as oatmeal and fruit.

The traditional Polish breakfast is a large spread with a variety of sides eaten with bread or toast. Sides include various cold cuts, meat spreads, the Polish sausage kielbasa, tomatoes, Swiss cheese, and sliced pickles. Twaróg, a Polish cheese, is the breakfast classic and comes in many forms. Twaróg can be eaten plain, with salt, sugar, or honey, or it can be mixed with or chives into a cream cheese-like spread. Eggs are served often as the main breakfast item, mostly soft-boiled or scrambled. For a quick winter breakfast, hot oatmeal, to which cocoa is sometimes added, is often served. Jam spreads are popular for a quick breakfast, including plum, raspberry, and black or red currant spreads. Breakfast drinks include coffee, milk (some areas may serve fresh milk from the cow), hot cocoa, or tea. Traditionally, the Poles avoid heavy-cooked foods for breakfast. For the most part, one will not see fried meats or potatoes in a classic Polish breakfast. Emphasis is placed on a large variety of foods to satisfy everyone at the breakfast table. wikipedia

The typical German breakfast consists of bread rolls, butter, jam, ham, soft-boiled eggs and coffee. Cereals have become popular, and regional variation is significant — cheeses, cold cuts, meat spreads, yogurt, granola and fruit (fresh or stewed) may appear, as well as eggs cooked to order (usually at smaller hotels or bed-and-breakfasts). A second breakfast is traditional in parts of Germany, notably Bavaria (there also called Brotzeit, literally "bread time").
