Wallow in an ersatz homage to an 1980s youth at this mini-chain of all-day diners dedicated to the most important meal of the day.
There are few more affable temples to nostalgia than this cluttered café, its brick walls covered with ’80s memorabilia – from record sleeves of celebrated movie soundtracks (Back To The Future, St Elmo’s Fire) to a T-shirt bearing the surnames of the original Breakfast Club actors. Finding a weathered wooden table on which to perch isn’t easy at lunchtime, but it’s the best way to fully appreciate the similarly sigh-inducing range of comfort food. Breakfasts take centre stage: from a full English and a US variation featuring maple syrup pancakes, to a Latin American breakfast burrito. But there are also jacket potatoes with toppings less ordinary (goat’s cheese, guacamole, grilled chicken), chunky sandwiches (such as the amusingly titled ‘When Haloumi Met Salad’) and freshly made smoothies galore. BYOin the evenings too.
