Saturday Brunching at The Breakfast Club in Angel

16 August 2014

On a grey Saturday morning in July, myself and Natsumi, headed down to the Angel branch of The Breakfast Club (a chain of little yellow cafés dotted around London inspired by the film). It is tucked away on The Camden Passage, a pretty little pedestrian only street away from the hustle and bustle of Islington. Though we did have to queue a little outside, it was worth the wait - popularity at any eating place means good food. And with cheeky slogans on the café's various blackboards, we were kept entertained. 

Once inside, we were ushered on the sofa benches at the back, meaning we were sat in a great spot for people watching/watching other people's food (I know I can't be the only one that keeps an eye out for what other people have ordered?). Either way, we were sat alongside a collage wall, made in homage to the cult classic film and as a token to the laid back, family feel of the business. Given the fact we were waiting outside for a while, the service was quick and to drink we ordered a pitcher of freshly squeezed orange juice (and as it is £3.50 a glass, I would really recommend getting a pitcher). The Breakfast Club also serve special morning cocktails, which from where I was sitting, looked delicious - so next time I go (because there will be a next time) I think I'll be ordering myself one.

Brightly decorated in yellow and orange, the cafe seems to resemble a little spot of sunshine and we didn't have to wait long for our food either....

I ordered The Full Monty, which included bacon, sausage, baked beans, black pudding, home-style fried potatoes, grilled tomato, mushrooms, toasted multigrain bloomer and I chose to have my eggs poached (how do you like your eggs in the morning?). Natsumi opted for The All American Pancakes which came with sausage, streaky bacon, home-style fried potatoes, maple syrup and she chose scrambled eggs. Both of these dishes came to a tenner, and I'm thinking that this may have been the best £10 I have ever spent. For the rest of the day we still felt full from our traditional breakfasts! I definitely recommend visiting any one of their London branches, I think I will be trying out Hoxton or the newly opened one by London Bridge.

Has anyone else been to The Breakfast Club? Where's your favourite place for a spot of brunch?

    1. The plates were indeed packed, so I'm glad I was hungry when I went! Their signs across many of their branches are hilarious, for example one in Spitalfields lights up and reads 'Sex, Drugs and Sausage Rolls'. I definitely recommend keeping it in mind, I've never heard a bad thing about the restaurants! :)

  3. Love the sandwich board haha. I need to try this place when I'm next in London xx
