The question is where can I get the best breakfast in London? Well who knows, when you look into these things on google (and review websites) there are hundreds of places and recommendations…
So I knew I was heading to watch my friend do the marathon at Canada Water, so looked into places near London Bridge which reduced my google search and where did I find but no other that The Breakfast Club Cafes … when I started to read about these places it blew my mind – an 80s throwback experience that serves breakfast. WOW!
I packed my bag as quick as I could and headed there like a crazed woman in search of the 80s (and brunch obviously).
Following the success of their Soho cafe, opened in 2005, The Breakfast Club has since expanded to a number of other London locations. The London Bridge, opened in 2014, comes with a license so you can have a beer or maybe a more civilised Bloody Mary with your breakfast – happy days!
It serves a wide selection of breakfasts to start your day, it then continues serving up fab things till early evening. The breakfasts are not just your standard fry up; you can choose from a US variation featuring maple syrup pancakes, to a Latin American breakfast burrito.
Like the Spitalfields and the Battersea cafes, London Bridge also has a secret. Hidden beneath The Breakfast Club in London Bridge is Call Me Mr Lucky – a concrete den that serves cocktails with lanterns and hidden alcoves.
So … Phew after reading all the reviews on this place I was expecting a huge queue but I got straight in and was seated by the really friendly staff.
I decided it was time to try something new so opted for the veggie breakfast burrito filled with scrambled egg, roasted peppers, Portobello mushroom, gucamole, cheddar and spicy pepper sauce. Delicious.
The atmosphere of the cafe is just right. The music plays, the staff are chatty and it’s just a happy place to start the day. The design features that made me smile to myself where the fired egg lamp shade (where do you find such a thing), the smiley face cups and the hidden bar concept.
The staff where uber friendly and really looked after me. I will be defiantly heading back and looks like I did get there at the right time but the queue would have been worth the wait!
