We have observed a phenomenon across several countries now. Doughnuts are not breakfast food any more in much of Asia.  We're used to Dunkin’ Donuts being open by 6:30 or 7 in the morning so you can stop on your way to work and pick up coffee and doughnuts, either just for yourself or for everyone.  If you are traveling, you stop at a waffle house for breakfast. 

                We learned when we were living in Korea that Dunkin’ Donuts never even opened until 10 or 11 and it’s busiest time of day was afternoon to early evening.  Donuts and coffee are the new "tea and cake" in the afternoon snack. 

                Gofry (pronounced Gofree, I think) are waffles in Poland.  We had seen several restaurants yesterday serving them in the early evening.  Mistakenly I wanted some for breakfast.  Not to be.  Couldn’t find a single place open in the morning that was serving gofry.  Funnily enough, I could find places to get ice cream in the morning, a nice ice cream soft serve or a regular cone.  Later in the morning though the gofry places started opening up.  A waffle all by itself is rather inexpensive, about $1.  But you have to add the whipped cream and fruit to make it especially delicious.  Gonna have another one tomorrow
