Good evenig !


Is the term coffee - break can be used at the beginning of a congress folder ?


As far as I'm concerned coffee break means a pause  to have some cofee and eat something , so it is properly used in the midle of the meeting .


Some friends of mine want to write down a congress folder in Porutuguese beginning with cofee- break . They are telling me that break here means breakfast and could be used in the the begining ( which is in the morning ) .


I'd like to stick to break as a pause not breakfast , BTW, if it will be not corret to use it at the beginning which term could substitute it ?
