I think this may be my favourite Breakfast Club! Brilliant across the board, it's particularly good for a weekend brunch. They do a mean Bloody Mary and feather light pancakes. Definitely worth a visit! Toilets are a 5/10, but 9/10 for their toilet soundtrack!


Oh my, this experience was incredible! And it was that to me... more an "experience" rather than a "restaurant". I read the menu the night before and couldn't sleep all night because I was concentrating too hard on what I was going to eat the next morning, as I was totally spoilt for choice. And my dilemma continued once I entered into the fabulously fun and nostalgic place itself, I couldn't go somewhere so fancy and only eat (my favourite) a fruit salad. I made those and the granolas off limits as they were too 'safe' and after much deliberation went for the 'Huevos Rancheros' or the 'Mexican Brekxican' as I kept calling it... the concept of having refried beans, melted cheese, guacamole and chilli sauce for breakfast is just genius. I am not big on breakfast normally and probably hadn't eaten anything in the morning for about 8 years before this visit so I was doubtful I would finish the giant portion ... but it was so amazing that I did so with no trouble whatsoever. I am definitely going to become a regular at this place!


When I rocked up to the Breakfast Club I was more than ready for a stack of maple syrup-drizzled (or in my case, drowned) pancakes to get up in my grill, so I was pretty set on my choice: pancakes with berries and cream. A healthy stack, served with fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries and a freshly squeezed orange juice were handed over in exchange for a reasonable price (£11.00 total) and I was ready and raring for the day.

Hoxton Square boasts all the most dreamy places to eat in Shoreditch, and the Breakfast Club venue itself is pretty cool, decked out with Smeg fridges, old school film memorabilia, squidgy armchairs and a delightful array of mismatched furniture to sink back on in the breakfast-induced coma that follows. But it's not all sausage sandwiches and scrambled eggs, there were some delish mac and cheese and burger options also on the menu for later shindigs.
