the breakfast club

18 February 2014

This place is no secret.

Made pretty obvious by the sizeable queue…

… that went around the block.

When my sister, her friend J and I started queueing at 11:15 on a Saturday morning, we didn't realise quite how long the wait would be - if we had, we probably wouldn't have braved it. Ignorance was bliss in this case, because we only got inside an hour and a half later. That's dedication.

The last time I went there was my first time, and we got there at a funny time on a weekend - around 3/4pm - so we barely had to queue. This was a different experience all together, but it did make the food taste that much better once we were finally given our well-deserved brunch.

As you can see, it was quite the spread. We ordered the Full Monty (full English), pancakes with bacon, and french toast with apples and cinnamon. Although everything was delicious, we unanimously agreed that the pancakes were the stars of the show - it was confirmed that the first I tried them here wasn't a fluke.

We did ourselves proud -

Obviously, queueing for an hour and a half is for loonies, so I would suggest you go at an obscure time or on a weekday at least. If you can face the long queue though, it will be worth it - it'll be like running a marathon or giving birth. You'll forget the pain once it's done (or so I'm told…).


  1. I do love the breakfast club but I've discovered so many places that actually let me book that its no longer a priority, especially when it's so cold at the moment! Have been known to go there for some pancakes at 9pm though...

  2. Thats one heck of a queue!! But the food does look amazing!

  3. It looks delicious!! God, and a lot!

  4. Looks like a cute place. And wow that's a lot of food, it all looks delicious!
    Really like your blog btw =)

  5. I really liked the breakfast club too!! But I agree there's no point going on "peak day/time" and queue for hours. I was really lucky to go on a random Thursday morning and didn't have to wait but I've heard of people sometimes waiting for more than 1 hour to get a table! Cra-cray... The full monty looks yum! xx

  6. The food looks divine. & worth the wait!

  7. Ahh it looks fabulous! The size of that queue is insane but it looks like it's worth it!

  8. I freaking love breakfast and this looks completely superb but I don't think I could ever have that much patience especially when I'm hungry!
