"the breakfast"

  • Fabulist

    American English
    It wouldn't really have to be a State Breakfast, but there would have to be something special about it, something that would give it a name, to use "the" instead of just saying, "Shall we start after breakfast." It might be the pancake breakfast given on the first Saturday morning of every month by the Elks Club to raise money for some charity, and the people you are talking to would have to know which special breakfast you are talking about.
