Frühstückstreff (German: "breakfast meeting") is an international, multi-lingual breakfast club initiative located in over 50 cities in Europe and Australia.[1] Founded in July 2001, the social networking site allows people to meet for breakfast, share their hobbies and special interests with other members of the community. In March 2009, there were 14,800 registered members.

Frühstückstreff offers a free basic membership, and there is no admission fee to attend Frühstückstreff breakfast meetings.[2] Participating members and their friends pay only for what they eat and drink at the selected restaurant or coffee shop.

Frühstückstreff is run by volunteers. Since its foundation in July 2001, more than 250 honorary Frühstückstreff staff members have supported the initiative by arranging regular meetings, selecting suitable cafés, leading excursions, and acting as regional contacts for other members.

Site features[edit]

Registration on the site is free, and anyone can create an online profile. Users must have a verifiable e-mail address before they can begin to interact with other members. Member profiles typically contain an overview of hobbies and other interests, links to friends, a photo, and a personal homepage.

The site's forum covers regional Frühstückstreff groups in Germany and internationally, as well as many topics of general interest.

The calendar of events includes over 900 dedicated Frühstückstreff events per year. Many of these events are regularly scheduled Frühstückstreff meetings. In addition, there are occasional movie nights, concert visits, hiking trips, bike and canoe tours, which are arranged and accompanied by Frühstückstreff members.

Frühstückstreff includes a locations database with over 10,000 restaurants, coffee shops, sport facilities, and tourist attractions, from which potential event locations are chosen.
