What is The Breakfast?
What is The Breakfast?
The Breakfast is an invite-only app that introduces you to someone new to meet in-person and to talk over breakfast. The Breakfast is neither a dating nor a networking app, we call it a human app.

Human connections make us happy and the best human encounters in life come when least expected, and usually by chance. Today with the growth of remote/freelance work and virtualization of life we have less chances for new offline encounters which directly impacts our mental health. The Breakfast is a space for more of these chances to happen.

The Breakfast is a space for quality and diverse human connections. Here you can meet open-minded and driven creatives with diverse backgrounds: design, entrepreneurship, tech, filmmaking, media, food, architecture, marketing, journalism, photography, education, etc.

The Breakfast is made by a small international team, led by two female founders and headquartered in Lisbon, Portugal.

The founders are Eteri Saneblidze (originally from Odessa, Ukraine. Co-founder of Sea Me) and Lisa Oreshkina (originally from Moscow, Russia. Co-Founder of The Question & Channelkit).
How does The Breakfast work?
How does The Breakfast work?
To have breakfast you simply make an announcement by sliding The Breakfast toggle on home screen. The app will introduce you to someone new, who also made an announcement within the same time range. We call it a chance.

The search might take up to several hours, because the app is trying to find the most relevant chance for you. The app is advancing and learning with every chance and breakfast you have.

Once you are chanced with someone, you will both have 24 hours to proceed to the chat to arrange a time and a place for breakfast. Otherwise this chance will expire. You can get only one chance a day — that keeps everyone focused, engaged and it doesn't feel like a marketplace.

We are constantly improving the technology and UX to encourage people having real life social interactions and to keep these experiences diverse.
“We don’t want people to spend time texting and swiping instead of just meeting. Starting from the home screen the app encourages and leads people to spontaneous real life interactions.

This is one of the things that makes The Breakfast so different from other social apps”
Eteri Saneblidze, The Breakfast co-founder
Why is The Breakfast invite-only and subscription based?
Why is The Breakfast invite-only and subscription based?
We decided to make The Breakfast invite-only in order to keep the environment safe and the community culture friendly and respectful.

To join The Breakfast you will need an invite code from someone who is already a member or you can fill out a waiting list application. If your profile is substantially filled, seems friendly, and clearly states what you do and what you are interested in, you should be getting your invite code within a week.

We don't sell ads or user data, we work to provide the utmost quality experience for people who find it valuable — that's why The Breakfast is subscription based.

We have a monthly subscription plan ($ 11.99) and a weekly plan ($ 3.99) if you just want to give The Breakfast a try.
Is the app launched yet?
Is the app launched yet?
Yes. The Breakfast officially launched in Moscow, Russia in January 2020 — right before the COVID-19 pandemic and the severe lockdowns. We spent 2020 improving the app performance and chancing technology based on our first users' feedback. The Breakfast has created 20k+ chances for its users so far.

Currently the app is available on iOS and allows its users to publish breakfast announcements in 13 cities. The Android app is coming later this year.
