SQL Time Comparisons

I have a query that I need to produce that gives the mealperiod that a particular order was produced in.  (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).  

This is so that my report can be exported into Excel and grouped/manipulated/massaged, etc.

However, nothing do seems to be able to get anything other than 'Dinner' as a result.
(possibly irrelevant note:  I don't care about the date, even though SQL forces me to store one... all I care about is the TIME portion of the 'TargetDelivery' field to make a determination of category)

Many thanks in advance.

Case 
        When CONVERT(DATETIME, OrderEntry.TargetDelivery, 108) <= CONVERT(DATETIME, '10:00:00 AM',8) Then 'Breakfast' 
 
When CONVERT(DATETIME, OrderEntry.TargetDelivery, 108) > CONVERT(DATETIME, '10:00:00 AM',8) AND CONVERT(DATETIME, OrderEntry.TargetDelivery, 8) < CONVERT(DATETIME, '3:00:00 PM',8) Then 'Lunch' 
 
Else 'Dinner' 
End As 'Meal Period',

your query wont give the proper results as you cannot just convert 10:00am to date. instead use datpart something like this

select case when datepart(hh,getdate())<11 then 'Breakfast'
                    when datepart(hh, getdate()) between 11 and 18 then 'Lunch'
                   else 'Dinner' end
