Aragorn would not be stopping for Second Breakfast

“Second Breakfast” is a meal eaten after breakfast, but before lunch. It is traditional in Bavaria, Poland, and Hungary. In Bavaria or Poland, special dishes are made exclusively to be eaten during second breakfast. In Vienna and most other parts of Austria the second breakfast is referred to as Jause. It is typical to eat four to five meals a day in these locations.

In J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel “The Hobbit”, the protagonist, Bilbo Baggins, eats a second breakfast. In the preface to its sequel, The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien mentions that hobbits prefer to eat six meals a day.

Seven daily hobbit meals (most famously listed by a distraught Pippin soon after realizing that Aragorn would not be stopping for Second Breakfast)
7:00am – Breakfast
9:00am – Second Breakfast
11:00am – Elevenses
1:00pm – Luncheon
4:00pm – Afternoon Tea
6:00pm – Dinner
8:00pm – Supper
