One early morning, a group of friends meet in their favorite café.

Ash, the biggest in the group, remarked :

"Must have been millions of years since we were all together, uh?""

Affie, who was wearing her brand new elephant pants, nodded. Anthony kept on complaining about the weather back home.

"Yeah, I am glad to be here with you, it is so cold at my place!"

Eugenie, who was saddened by the loss of a friend, was looking at Samuel and Namur, who where arguing about the possible future election of Donald Trump.

"These two are really inseparable", she said to herself.

Octavia, the smallest among her friends, stood and spoke :

"Guys, I have a suprise for you! We're going to the opera tonight!"

The waiter, waiting for the orders, wondered why these customers reminded him of something. But all of a sudden, he said:

"Ladies and gentlemen, may I suggest some sliced bread with butter, slices of cheese and ham? We also have croissants and other pastries. And for drinking, is coffee fine? We also have tea, of course, and orange and apple juice for you."

Who is this group of friends, and what came to the waiter's mind? (and yes, it is related.)

They are the

Seven continents

Explanation:

The first two or three letters of their names help to identify them:
Ash, the biggest - Asia
Affie with the elephant pants - Africa
Anthony with the bad weather - Antarctica
Eugenie with the lost friend, Great Britain - Europe
Samuel & Namur, who are inseparable and arguing about Trump - South & North America
Octavia, the smallest mentioning the Sydney opera house - Oceania

Ash's remark 'millions of years since we were all together' also makes sense.

Finally, a continental breakfast was what the waiter had in mind.
