Meet new people
over breakfast

Not dating or networking. Just breakfast.

The Breakfast introduces you to someone new & awesome to meet and talk with. Over breakfast.

We call every introduction a “chance” — a chance for a genuine in-person interaction.

We believe in chances, not matches

You can take only
one chance per 24 hours.

Why one chance per day?

The Breakfast is all about quality interaction with real people: we believe in showing up, not swiping.

That’s why every day you get the opportunity to take a chance on someone new. Take it or leave it — no pressure!

How do chances work?

We developed an algorithm called BRIOCHE (Breakfast Integrated Ongoing Chances Estimation) that finds chances tailored to your profile and activity.

Each chance is an opportunity to meet a new person in your city and have breakfast together.

You choose whether to prioritize diversity or similarity of interests and personality, and BRIOCHE does the rest.

That way, you have the opportunity to interact with all types of people and expand your world.

Who is on The Breakfast?

A global network of creative individuals.

People who ask questions, invent things, make moves, explore possibilities. But ultimately, The Breakfast is for anyone who is open to connecting and having conversations — the first step is to download the app.

Why invites?

Invites help us keep the space clear of bots, spammers, fake, or incomplete profiles.

We want to make sure each profile is personal and thorough, that way every chance is a meaningful introduction.

How do I join?

Download the app and fill out your profile to request an invite. Every week we review each request and invite people with complete, personal, and verifiable profiles.

Or, join by receiving an invite from someone already on The Breakfast.

Does The Breakfast work in my city?

Right now, you can meet new awesome people over breakfast in New York, Lisbon, Berlin, London, Kyiv, and Paris.

We launch new cities whenever a city reaches 151 profiles. If you want to see your city’s status on The Breakfast, download the app and fill out a profile.

Is The Breakfast app free?

The Breakfast is subscription-based. From the very beginning, we wanted to meet the needs of our members, not the demands of corporations. That’s why we will remain ad-free, and we will never sell your data.

Your support helps us keep our commitment to our values in building an inspiring space for modern connection.

You can join monthly for $12.99 (USA; for other regions, check the app store).

Who makes The Breakfast?

The Breakfast was conceptualized in 2018 by us, Eteri and Lisa. We wanted to create a social app that wasn’t about dating or networking, but instead was about people and conversations.

Today, we are a small multinational team of designers, developers, therapists, writers, curators, and generally brilliant people headquartered in Lisbon, Portugal.

What’s the point?

We believe everyone deserves the luxury of real life interactions. Making new connections opens us up to new experiences and new worlds — and lets us show up in new ways.

While our ability to connect online is an amazing facet of modern life, it can leave us craving connection beyond the screen. Our mission is to help people get to know each other in real life.

Why breakfast specifically?

Because dinner sounds like a date, and lunch sounds like a work meeting. Breakfast is usually just that — breakfast.

Coffee and a pastry counts, too :-)
