Typical breakfast in Portugal
The breakfast in Portuguese is called "o pequeno almoço".
The Portuguese take their breakfast quite late (around 9.30 or 10am). It consists of bread, toasted or not. Most often, it is country bread, spread with jam or jelly of quince, cherries or tomatoes. It is accompanied by a bowl of milk or coffee.

Typical breakfast in Brazil
In Brazil, each region has its typical breakfast. However, breakfast will be a sweet mix of sweet and savory everywhere.
On the table will be placed fresh tropical fruits such as mango, watermelon, papaya, watermelon or salad ..., jam or honey or cakes with banana, carrot or chocolate. Tapioca and very European foods such as salted butter (always), bread, melted cheese, scrambled eggs, sweet or fruit yoghurt (never nature) and ham are also very popular in the morning. The preferred cereals will be granola.
Brazilians love meat. It will not be rare to find in addition to the smoked turkey at sunrise as a salty breakfast. The latter will very often be accompanied by requeijão, a solid cheese made from cow's milk or a misto frio, which is a kind of local croque-monsieur (bread, cheese and ham) to eat cold.
The Brazilian breakfast specialty is Pão de queijo, a roll made with mandioca flour and cheese.
Drink level, from the classic: coffee, coffee with milk ... the difference here is that the grains come mainly from the country. The consumption of tea is quite low. The fruit juices are exotic: orange, of course, pineapple or caju, depending on the region.
For a quick breakfast, Brazilians will prefer a coffee and pão na chapa, buttered toast or even a misto, grilled sandwich with ham and cheese.
