Going out for breakfast is a pleasure that I don’t get to indulge in all that often (a travesty, if I’m honest). However, earlier this week, I took a day off work for Christmas shopping but decided to treat myself to a breakfast outing.
The Breakfast Club is a popular London chain of café-cum-restaurants, which started out in Soho in 2005 and are rapidly taking over the capital. Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, but focusing on the meal of it’s namesake, The Breakfast Club makes breakfast exciting and fashionable. With an impressive selection of breakfasts from classic Eggs Benedict to blueberry pancakes, whatever your taste, you can find it at The Breakfast Club.
Unsurprisingly, I went for a Mexican brekkie ordering the Huevos Rancheros: two fried eggs on cheese stuffed tortillas, with refried beans, the juiciest chorizo sausages and a trio of salsas. Not for the faint-hearted, but simply delicious.
My sister went for the Eggs Al Benny, which is a Mexican take on Eggs Benedict with poached eggs, served on a breakfast muffin with chorizo, spicy hollandaise, guacamole and chilli. Both were outstanding, and the service was friendly too.
For two breakfasts, coffees and juice, the bill came to about £26. Not an everyday stop, but a lovely weekend treat.
