Proino is the Greek word for "Breakfast. Traditional breakfast in Greece (Proino) is not a big event, just like in many countries worldwide. Most start off with bread and preserves, a pastry savoury or sweet and fresh fruit often with yoghurt and honey.

Sometimes, cereals and pancakes with honey and cinnamon. Greek coffee is of course the order of the day traditionally enjoyed in northern parts with a pastry called a Bugatsa . Greek coffee is identical to Turkish coffee and can be ordered without sugar (sketo), medium-sweet (metrio), or very sweet (glyko) but it is not served with milk. Many people supplement this light breakfast with a mid morning snack which might include bread, meat and cheese.
