As we mentioned, before going shopping we love to have brunch to fuel us for the day ahead. Our favourite place is Dishoom – however we had read amazing reviews for The Breakfast Club – and have always intended to go, we just didn’t like the idea of queuing.
The Breakfast Club has several locations around London, we went to the Soho branch (which was the first restaurant). On a side street off Wardour Street – the store front is easy to spot by the queue or egg yolk yellow decor.
The yellow continues inside – where it forms the backdrop for 80′s memorabilia – cassette tapes, troll dolls and pac man bunting. There is an extensive menu – Jason often struggles to find breakfast options without eggs but was spoiled for choice here.
He went for the Pancakes & Bacon. It was a three stack of milk pancakes with rashers of crispy bacon on top. The pancakes were very nice although it was a little too dry as the maple syrup was miserly poured on. They do supply more if you ask so no problems there. No big fan of crispy bacon but it was quite tasty, and I also ordered a side of sausage which came in the form of one plump sausage which at £2.50 was far too expensive but it was better than the bacon even though it was less in quantity.
Dee started with a latte – which was served in an large cup (just want I needed to kick start the day), followed by the Veggie Breakfast Burrito, which was served with sides of guacamole, salsa and sour cream. The burrito was filled with scrambled egg, roasted peppers and mushrooms all mixed in with a hot pepper sauce. The burrito was amazing, huge in portion filled with flavours, the sides however were not, they didn’t taste as fresh and seemed a little pointless.
You can check out the full menu on their amazing website (we adore the 8-bit theme).
