Its all about brunch these days and one Saturday Brunch Time Astrid, Renata and I went to The Breakfast Club to have their famous all day breakfast menu.
They do not take reservations and so (especially on a weekend morning) you will find a line of hungry foodies outside the restaurant.
We must have only waited about 20minutes before we were inside and seated. The interior reminds me of an 80’s diner, but brighter and more eclectic.
I was going to go for a naughty Bloody Mary, but decided to go for a Beetlejuice (£4.10) instead, which was a beetroot, apple, carrot and ginger juice. It was very gingery and a great refreshing start to the day! Renata went for the All American (£10), which came with pancakes, eggs, sausage, home-style fried potatoes, streaky bacon and maple syrup. Renata is a big fan of having sweet and savoury together so this was a winner for her. Renata and Astrid both went for iced lattes (£2.50) for their caffine kick.
I went for the Full Monty (£9.70) which was supposed to be bacon, sausage, black pudding, eggs, home-style fried potatoes, mushrooms, beans, grilled tomato and toasted multigrain bloomer – but I swapped the potatoes for some spinach instead.
My poached eggs were perfectly cooked with the yolk runny so that I could dip my bacon and sausage into it. I think the grilled portabelo mushroom was a great touch and had a lovely bbq-like flavour to it and the spinach was steamed and very fresh tasting as well.
Astrid went for the Veggie All American (£9.60). She isn’t a vegetarian but just loves veg. This came with pancakes, eggs, veggie sausage, mushrooms, home-style fried potatoes and maple syrup.
Its definitely one of my top brunch spots.
