In brief: Preferably.
As with any medication, maintaining a circadian (daily) rhythm helps maximize the efficacy of ocps too.
That does not mean that you should stress out about a couple of hours off each day, rather make a habit of taking them with breakfast daily. If you miss one day, take two the next.
