”I had a quick breakfast” collocates and ”sounds natural”.

It’s possible to use ”I had a fast breakfast” in Australian English, but don’t try that if you use British or American English

    we have two words ”fast & first” but with different meaning.
    Fast means speed and first means being no. 1 or 1st incident so you have to be keen when using them.

Do you say ”I had a fast breakfast” or ” I had a quick breakfast”

    ”I had a quick breakfast” is the usual way to say it.

    Note that there is an article ”a” here because we give a description of the breakfast - ”quick”.

    Incidentally, when breakfast is described as ”quick”, it means that it is eaten in a very short time as well as consisting of very few different things.
