The Breakfast Club. Not the 1985 American teen drama film directed John Hughes not that I have seen it (I was too young to watch the film), but two children of the 80s founded their first cafe in Soho London ‘The Breakfast Club’ in 2005 serving up from traditional English, pancakes, salads, buritos, burgers, wraps and many more.
I discovered the cafe’s Hoxton branch from a friend which became a regular hang out place to have breakfast for lunch (known as brunch, duh), tea, have meetings and all sorts. It is a chillaxing atmosphere where you would spend all day socialise with friends, the staff are helpful, friendly and under pressure when busy. The surrounding furniture, shelving and homeware are either secondhand and vintage, which makes it feel like you’re having breakfast at your local traditional cafe with a funky twist.
There are other branches in London but are often busy depends what time of the day, a mix of locals favours by students, musicians, fashionistas, artists and even celebrities.
