In English 'en pause' translates as 'on a break'

Absolutely. We can trust Ross Geller on this one...

I have never heard a single Earthling say "on break"

Why not prendre du café?

I think that would translate to "have some coffee" rather than "have a coffee".

Sure, but that's what we were taught when we were first introduced to cafê and prendre.

It's all been said before, but I am on break is too literal a translation of je suis en pause......

What is wrong with "si" for "so"?
