Does coffee count as breakfast?

I’ve heard time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you want to lose weight eat breakfast, if you want to have a better day eat breakfast, if you want to raise an army of the dead to do your bidding and take over the world… you got it, find the necrinomicon. Oh, but eat some breakfast before you begin your search.

Thing is, does breakfast actually need to be food? I wake up and have 2 cups of coffee with cream. I’d say my coffees have at least 100 calories each. So 200 calories in liquid. Is that any different than waking up and having a protein shake or food replacement drink? I always figured it was to do with getting your metabolism started but I suspect anything you put in your body would do that. So, do I actually need to “eat” a breakfast, or does my coffee count as breakfast?

Btw I am asking because I really don’t like breakfast. I love breakfast foods, just not eating early in the morning.
