The prime minister's decision to seal the agreement marked the finale of a three-week diplomatic effort to finalise the most contentious divorce terms.
Shortly after the breakfast started, Mr Juncker's chief of staff Martin Selmayr tweeted pictures of white smoke rising from a chimney stack, indicating the deal was done.
Juncker confirmed the deal at a press conference alongside Theresa May, saying it had been a "difficult negotiation" but that both sides had shown a "willingness to compromise."
Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, met in Brussels early today to sign off a 15-page "progress report" that will allow EU negotiators to recommend opening a second phase of talks on post-Brexit relations.
Britain today reached a historic deal on its EU exit terms, enshrining special rights for 4m citizens and paying euro 40bn- euro 60bn in a hard-fought Brexit divorce settlement that clears the way for trade talks next year.
