    let's go and +(verb) / let's go to + (verb)

    Hello everyone,

    1. "Let's go and have breakfast."

    2. "Let's go to have breakfast."

    I think that after "let's go" we do not use "to" before the verb,instead we use "and" but I am not sure. If I am right could you please clarify the rule?

    Thank you.

    Neither of them is needed. "Let's go have breakfast."

    As a BE speaker, I prefer 'Let's go and have breakfast'.

    There is no 'rule'; it's a matter of usage.

    I think "let's go for breakfast" is better, but I' m not sure.

    What's with the spacing format? When you post here, please use standard English grammar, punctuation, and spacing.
