If a person was in Minsk, Belarus (present day) and they were guests of a local family, what would they likely be served for breakfast?

Thanks, jeff

Seriously though, http://www.suite101.com/content/common-meals-in-russia-a77482

Bread and coffee or tea, pancakes (russian pancakes called Blini, not quite the same as the West European ones), omelette, buckwheat porridge with sour cream or hearty sandwiches.

As the article says the type of breakfast will depend somewhat on the nature of the host.

Tea or coffee is a must. If it's a quick small breakfast, a cup of coffee and a cheese sandwich (European-style, bread & butter & cheese on top) will do. But if they have company, they are likely to serve a larger meal.

Buckwheat porridge is spot on. With milk, of course.

Thanks for the replies.

My characters are feasting on blini and buckwheat porridge with sour cream.
