: he had nothing on his breath but coffee and cheese Danish.

It means he smelled like what he had been eating and drinking. A cheese Danish is a pastry containing cream cheese. Depending on the context, your sentence might mean that somebody smelled the person's breath to learn whether he had been drinking liquor and found that he had not.
