The Breakfast Club Exterior

REVIEW: The Breakfast Club

At last – The Breakfast Club has come to Brighton. From its original incarnation in Soho back in 2005, the cafe/bar/restaurant chain has come a long way. They now have seven branches in London and this weekend saw the soft opening of their first venture outside of the capital (lucky us).

Contrary to the name suggests, The Breakfast Club does do evening fare, but I’ve always found that brunches are what they do best. So I wasted no time in getting down there on Saturday morning to see what this new BC had to offer (as this was their soft launch, all profits were being donated to a local LGBT charity. What a lovely bunch).

From the outside, The Breakfast Club looks exactly as you’d expect if you’re familiar with their London branched: plenty of egg-yolk yellow with complementing pastel shades, and signage and styling that somehow exude cool – this brand knows what it’s doing and does it very well. Inside, the usual incongruous tat is there (I mean this in the nicest possible way), somehow coming across as fun and playful, and not irritatingly overstudied and ‘quirky’.

I was prepared to make some concessions given that The Breakfast Club still wasn’t ‘officially’ open, but from the start service was friendly, relaxed and efficient. We settled down with a Bloody Mary (obviously), and they were beauties: perfectly spiced, HUGE and garnished to perfection. Bloody marvellous.

I usually order the Huevos Rancheros at BC (they are absolutely nothing like authentic Mexican huevos rancheros, but that doesn’t stop a plate laden with chorizo, guacamole, refried beans, salsa, sour cream and fried eggs from being darned delicious), but the Huevos al Benny caught my eye so I decided to give them a go: poached eggs, chorizo, roast peppers, avocado and spicy hollandaise. There was the option of adding a side of fruit (what?), but I instead went for a serving of spinach (it’s healthy now, see?).

These were every bit as good as they look (and don’t they look impressive?). Perfectly poached eggs, EXCELLENT chorizo with a really good, fiery kick, sweet roast peppers, ripe avocado and that spicy hollandaise was a stroke of genius. Having been prepared for some ‘hiccups’ along the way given the doors had been open for mere hours, I was thoroughly impressed with how The Breakfast Club got it absolutely spot on from the word go.

I was already a big fan of The Breakfast Club chain (as I think you can tell), so it’s brilliant to have our very own branch down by the sea. I’m sure it will do incredibly well – they really have got the formula just right – and I will definitely be back for many more brunches (and possibly lunches) to come. Brighton’s dining scene just keeps getting better.

  2. ARTASという頭皮を切らないロボットを使うので安心でした。植毛は前に動画で見た時に頭皮をかなり長く切っており、そこが一番の不安材料だったのですが、AGAルネッサンスクリニックではその心配がないのが最も良かった点です。

  3. Nice weblog right here! Also your web site rather a lot up fast!
    What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link for your host?
    I wish my website loaded up as fast as yours lol

  4. Okay, so Bruce wasn’t exactly well-known for his writing about how to increase vertical jumps on the court, or even how to dunk more hoops, but he had a
    profound effect on Kareem Abdul -Jabaar. Training is what breaks the muscle tissue down, and then recovery is
    when it builds. There’s also a risk to performing the workouts wrong, which can trigger injuries.
