Cappuccino after noon - faux pas in US?

I guess this is a question about dining etiquette changing with transplantation. Obviously, in Italy, it is a huge faux pas to have a cappuccino after a certain hour (I forget the exact time) in the morning.

In the US, it appears to be extremely common, at nice restaurants of all stripes, and in Italian ones (Caffe Vittoria in Boston comes to mind).

So my question is, is it still a faux pas at all, or is it just okay to break the rule?
