Which one is correct "have you had a breakfast" or "did you have a breakfast"? And should I use the ‘a’ s, is it necessary to use it?

1 Answer 1


Neither is correct!

The usual question is either:

Have you had breakfast (yet)?
Did you have breakfast - usually, but not necessarily, followed by a time reference - this morning?

However, one uses the indefinite article before an adjective preceding breakfast

Did you have a good/hearty/substantial breakfast this morning?
Have you had a good breakfast in preparation for a hard day's work.
