Breakfast - the most important meal of the day, or at least that's what people say. Now, breakfast tends not to be a very sociable time, with people looking at newspapers over soggy bowls of cornflakes and lukewarm tea.
If only there was a type of club you could go to, where good breakfasts were provided in an atmosphere conducive to this most important of daily meals. Well, you're not going to believe this...
The Breakfast Club exists, and it can be found on D'Arblay Street in Soho (as wells as in four other locations around London, with another one soon to be added in London Bridge). The name is indeed the inspiration of the famous '80's movie and a step inside any of the locations will provide you with enough paraphanalia to make you believe 1989 didn't switch into 1990 on the last New Year's Eve of that decade.
To the food. Obviously there are breakfasts, of many sizes and shapes. Should you feel like really going for it, there's the Full Monty (an English Breakfast par excellence); if that's not your cup of tea, there are 'butties' (British English for a sandwich), and pancakes (for the more American style), and a whole load of other things on the menu too.
Don't worry if you can't make it up in time for breakfast, you're not alone (me too in fact), they stay open throughout the day, so breakfast can easily become lunch, or even dinner, when burgers, sandwiches and salads become the order of the day.
The best thing about this club is you don't need a membership card, there is no secret handshake, and certainly no 'truffle shuffle' (that's for you, Goonies fans) - so come along and feed yourself well.
