Tuesday Tasties (Sort of) - The Breakfast Club - A Review

Ad and I have a Bucket List of places we need to venture while we're living in London. Naturally it includes a number of places to scoff as well as some more tourist type attractions. Today's post focuses on the former and is a place we have been to scoff.
This weekend we ventured to The Breakfast Club which has several branches in London. We opted for the Shoreditch branch as we wanted to potter around the markets and explore some vinyl sales around Brick Lane.
The interior was good fun, full of mismatched furniture and quirky features such as the below wall which we enjoyed admiring while we hanging around the queue. Don't worry, we weren't hanging around for too long, around 10 minutes when we arrived at about 2:45.
This sign in particular made me chuckle.
While this made me want to burst into song having viewed Rock of Ages a few weeks prior (the movie is awesome, I don't care what you say!)
Right, that's enough of that, what we're all here for is the food! As you'd expect, on a Saturday, Brunch/Breakfast is served until 5pm with scrummy dishes such as Boston Beans, Breakfast Burritos, Pancakes and even Huevos Rancheros if you're so inclined.
I was ravenous having not eaten since 8:30 and opted for the All American Pancakes with eggs, sausage, fried tatties, bacon and maple syrup for a bargain £11! The tatties were really tasty and crispy and the pancakes were lovely and fluffy.
Ad went for the Boston Beans which were full of slow roasted pork, cannellini and butter beans, a fried egg and egg bread. Ad struggled to polish it off so it must have been filling.
Despite this, we both managed and peanut butter and banana milkshake before calling it quiets.
The brunch menu was pretty substantial so I doubt you'd struggle to find something you liked the sound of. There are plenty of veggie options so don't worry, it's not just for meat eaters.
All in all, we had a great experience and the bill was really reasonable (£30 for the two of us) although I'd like to go back and sample their dinner menu. Ad has his heart set on the fried chicken which we didn't realise wouldn't be on offer till gone 5. Never mind, maybe next time eh?

Have you been to The Breakfast Club? What did you think? Is the fried chicken worth a return visit?


  1. Fun! We have a list of places we'd like to try around Nashville, but we keep going back to our favorites. We need to make a bigger effort. We're good at trying new things; not so good at trying new places to eat. This looks delicious! The tin and neon signs are very Nashville. We have a lot of quirky, mismatched places like this, too. Your breakfast(?) looks delicious. We always go out for dinner and forget how underrated breakfast and lunch are. Not to mention much cheaper! You've inspired me to try a new restaurant this weekend, even if it's just for a quick breakfast or lunch!

    1. Well I'm constantly updating our London bucket list, Ad keeps telling me off as we tick off one place and I'll add two more as and when I read about them. London has so many delicious places I want to visit it's hard not to keep adding places!

      Ha, it was meant to be breakfast/brunch but by the time we ate it was well gone three, I was so ravenous I couldn't shovel this lot down quickly enough. For me, bacon and maple are always a winner. Oddly enough the maple actually worked really well with the potatoes as well...who'd have thought?

      I'd love to get more into my brunch, there's a wonderful American style diner over here called Stax, their brunch menu is awesome and features one of my favourites, waffles!

      You're right though, breakfast and lunch are much cheaper. We tend to avoid going out for dinner too often as restaurants can get a little hectic down here which tends to mean you can't hear yourself think!!

      I hope you went somewhere tasty!
