For Pancakes Fluffier Than a Sheep with a Perm
We've all heard of the Breakfast Club; the iconic, must-see movie. But the restaurant? It's a whole different story.
Don't be fooled by the name into believing that they only serve breakfast because it is so much more than that.
Although, the breakfast is pretty up there. When I visited it was nearly nine at night but they had no problem cooking us up some bacon, maple syrup and pancakes - a combination I had never had before. An absolutely killer breakfast (or, in my case, dinner).
Like I said, though, they serve plenty of other things if you're not in the mood for pancakes. My friend placed an order for spicy chicken wings, which were delivered with an extra bottle of Tobasco sauce to satisfy his desire for flaming hot flavour.
I was told they were delicious but didn't risk trying one. I know full well all that will happen if I consume spicy food is pain, tears, burning and regret; not necessarily in that order.
The milkshakes are absolutely bomb, too. Thick, creamy, caramel, artery-clogging goodness. After sharing one I felt like I had consumed all my sugar for the entire year. (They're definitely a hit for someone with a sweet tooth. Just not necessarily people who want to keep all their teeth).
I actually enjoyed my bacon pancakes so much that I dragged a different friend back with me a few days later for a lavish brunch in between classes. The food I had the second time around was equally as amazing as the first.
I ordered the Breakfast Burrito - something that, again, they weren't technically supposed to be serving anymore as it was past 'Breakfast Time', but the chef made one for me anyway, reassuring that it was no problem at all. The burrito consisted of tiny chunks of fiery chorizo mixed with light scrambled eggs wrapped up in a floury tortilla; one of the most beautiful sights of my life.
Both times I have visited The Breakfast Club I've been overwhelmed by the fast and lovely service. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. It's practically Disney Land, except instead of fairy tales and magic it's where breakfast dreams come true.
Overall, I'd say to definitely check out the Breakfast Club if you can get the chance. It has a great playlist in the background, a funky interior, friendly staff, a fantastically quaint location and some of the best food you'll probably eat for a long time. This restaurant really does seem to have it all.
