Lunch Date: The Breakfast Club

If you are a big food fanatic like me, then this is a must read. I always loved to eat, it's a hobby of mine actually. In fact, I love eating out whether it would be in a restaurant or someone else cooking for me. Basically, I don't like cooking my own food because I can guarantee that 99% of the time it will turn out to be a disaster (a little bit of an over exaggeration); anyhow there's still hope as I'm still learning. I do make a mean spaghetti, not going to lie.

Previously I lived in a restricted area; we only had the standard KFC, McDonalds and the odd Chinese restaurant. Since moving to London, I was bombarded with all these new restaurants. I'd never heard of GBK, The Diner, Carluccio's... you can literally find so many cultures (of food) in one street!

It gets incredibly overwhelming so I thought I would help out anyone who does and doesn't live in London to try out these new food places. I initially got the idea to go to The Breakfast Club from my friend Jessica who runs her own blog Food and Baker. Me and Eric (my photographer/boyfriend) love to explore and eat out in  new, different places, so why not document them right? 
Welcome to the beginning of my food diary!

First up, The Breakfast Club




A while back we went on a  double date with our friends and something none of us have tried before was The Breakfast Club. The way it was decorated radiated a quirky and interesting vibe, just my kind of restaurant. 
The downside is the long wait in the queue. I can guarantee that there will be queues 80% of the time you go to this restaurant, although try and go at 3 or 4pm as we found that it didn't extend all the way  onto the street outside at this point. ALTHOUGH, option number two if you want to prevent queuing altogether read until the end of this post to find out how!

We didn't start eating until late afternoon but nevertheless, I love breakfast food whether it's morning, afternoon or evening (trust me, you can ask my housemates who have witnessed me having cereal for dinner). However, they do have different menus - A breakfast and brunch then a lunch and dinner


Whilst we waited for our friends to arrive, we had option to play board games which got me ridiculously excited. Unfortunately for us, Jenga was taken so the next hour or so I was faced with an intense game of Upwards Scrabble. It was so intense that we had to order drinks. I opted for the Big Breakfast Smoothie (The purple one) and Eric went for the Tropical Gangster (The bright yellow one). Warning the oats in the Breakfast Smoothie will get stuck in-between your teeth (sadly for me anyway).

Once it was time to order food, we went ham (literally). Three of us ordered two types of eggs benedicts - two standard Eggs Benedict's with ham and home-style fried potatoes and one Huevos Al Bennny (as you can see below). Alongside this was the pulled pork sandwich. It all tastes just as good as it looks, especially the hollandaise sauce! The additional ingredients in the Eggs Benedict (the spinach on the side) gave it an extra flavour. 
The home-style fried potatoes were heavenly. The interior had a soft texture yet the exterior had a hint of crispiness. It was tasty coming from someone who isn't a fan of potato wedges. The size of it helped as I often find that big potato wedges are a little too much for me.  


I wasn't feeling an eggs bendict that day so I ordered the All American Pancakes which came with pancakes, eggs, a sausage, home-styled fries, steaky bacon and maple syrup. I'm not a very big fan of bacon (I know, shoot me) aside from that, I loved it. The sausages were cooked to perfection and the combination of all four of them (including the maple syrup) made me drool. I didn't think I could combine anything sweet with sausages and potatoes! Now I know. The poached eggs didn't taste at all plain, there was that hint of vinegar which actually took me a few seconds to decide whether I liked it or not, which I actually really do.
It was very filling and I didn't have to eat for the rest of the day. Surprisingly enough, I was full of energy for the rest of the day too. No complaints were made about my feet hurting or that I was tired. Perhaps the meal contributed towards that. Either way, I'm very happy about the quality of service and food from The Breakfast Club. I highly recommend it! 

The one we chose to go to was in Spitalfields (Liverpool Street station is literally 2-3 minutes away from it) and a very useful tip is to look up the "secret password" on their website. It will save you a hell of a lot of queuing time and it will lead you to a secret place... maybe behind a fridge door? You'll know what I'm on about once you go...

  1. So I've lived in London all my life and I still haven't been here! I've heard so much about it, but just never managed to get there. But now from your beautiful pictures and great review on The Breakfast Club, I want to go even more now!:D
