The Breakfast Club is a place that I have often heard spoken about, however I have never had the pleasure of visiting – until now… and I certainly wasn’t disappointed!
I have often heard tales of people queuing for 45minutes or more just to get a table at one of this chain of restaurants popular locations across London, and if people can be that committed to a place then it can’t be bad – can it!
Located just around the corner from Borough Market, London Bridge tube station is about a 5 minute walk away so this is ideally located for transport links.
The Breakfast Club at London Bridge looks pretty unassuming from the outside; however as soon as you enter you are hit with a blast from the 80s. From their illuminated pineapples scattered around the sides of the restaurant, to the classic hits of the era being blasted from the speakers – this truly is a place to reminisce and let your hair down.
The menu is the same across locations and essentially it is breakfast/brunch focused, but with a little bit of a twist. What I love is that it is open until 9pm and onwards, meaning you can have breakfast at dinner time – a true joy of adulthood!
Prices are around £6-£10 for a main which isn’t too extortionate given the location and the fact that people clearly want to be seen to be here! The portion sizes definitely make it good value for money too.
The food itself is delicious. The bacon is so crispy but tasty still and is the perfect additional side order whatever you might be ordering. We sampled posh sausage sandwiches, their own version of a full English breakfast and much more – but were all left feeling satisfied and incredibly impressed with the offerings.
What’s more they have a fully stocked bar and a fantastic cocktail list, and whilst it is a little strange to be eating a sausage sandwich whilst drinking a gin cocktail – it’s not to be sniffed at and definitely livens the atmosphere.
The staff were excellent and really couldn’t do more to assist us. Our drinks were never fully empty before we were offered more and our food was swiftly delivered, whilst still being hot and fresh.
I really cannot recommend The Breakfast Club enough and totally understand why people queue around the block just to get a table in this place. Everything inside it is made to be instagrammed, and the London Bridge venue in particular will fill you with nostalgia.
So the next time you are looking for brunch, whatever time of day it might be, be sure to visit The Breakfast Club for a bite to eat – and a cocktail or two.
