I went to the breakfast club on a Friday for a couple of drinks and I was expecting a massive queue but surprisingly, nothing! We got in in a second and got a table straight away!

The happy hour runs until 7PM and you can get 2 same cocktails for less than a tenner! 

Also, as they have a license for drinks + food only they'll serve you free french fries to go with your cocktails!! (absolute dream)

As you can see on the pictures below the interior is really funky and the staff is super friendly. The music isn't too loud so you can actually talk with the people your with.

It's a great discovery for quiet after-work drinks and I most definitely recommend it!

I think you'd struggle to review any of the Breakfast Club restaurants and to not mention queuing. To be honest it had been the queues outside on the weekend that had stoked my interest in the first place as it seemed people were voting with their feet in droves so they must be doing something right. So it did it live up to the hype? Well for me it pretty well did. I thought overall the pricing was on the high side, but I guess under the circumstances when they are struggling to fit people in why not? Obviously it was busy, but the staff were friendly and the service was good. I think the main draw is their American style offerings but I went for standard English fare with a Mocha which while it wasn't listed on their menu they were happy to oblige and the service was fast and friendly. All in all while I wouldn't suggest queuing too long, if make it in you shouldn't be disappointed!

I love the Breakfast Club, definitely one of my favorite places to go for brunch (after a late night!) The pancakes and bacon are my fave, but there are a variety of delicious options on the menu. A must for anyone in the area!

If you can get in its fantastic good old nosh with delicious pancakes you'll just hope you have space left to eat


Excellent place for breakfast and branch! Try the "full monty" or if you prefer something sweet try the all American pancakes - just delicious. Cons: huge queues and no reservation can be made. The area inside is quite narrow - things are better during summer that you can also be seated outside.

I wanted to see what all the fuss was about so went with a friend to the Angel branch. We were greeted with a queue outside and were given told it was a 15 minute wait to be seated. Once inside it was quite cramped and extremely busy but I decided to give it the benefit of a doubt seeing as this was a popular chain. I had the Veggie All American and although the sausage was quite nice with a smokey paprika taste, overall the meal was quite bland. The potatoes and mushroom lacked flavour, however the pancakes were light and fluffy and were even nicer once I drowned them in maple syrup! My friend had the pancakes and berries with vanilla cream, which she said was delicious- so maybe the sweet meals go down better than the savoury food? If I had picked a quieter time to go perhaps I would have enjoyed the atmosphere more (especially with all the cool 80's memorabilia on the walls to look at and the cheesy 80's/90's tunes on the sound-system), but as it was a weekend lunchtime, we felt a bit rushed.


I'm not sure why this place generates the queues it does. The food was terrible. I had the All-American, which involved dry, claggy 'pancakes' served with potatoes that tasted like they had been left out in a bain marie too long and three strips of bacon which had been cooked as a single fused chunk. The onions were soggy and flavourless, the sausage completely forgettable. Worst of all, the heavily diluted and oily scrambled eggs still contained sizeable fragments of eggshell. My friends had similar reviews for their respective meals (Huevos Rancheros and the Chorizo Hash Browns). I would say it was like an overpriced greasy spoon, but I have had better breakfasts at greasy spoons and I didn't have to wait to get in. To their credit, the staff were quick and friendly enough, although I suspect that was as much about maintaining turnover as seeing to us. Will not be returning - and certainly don't recommend it for others.

Disappointed as well...

Went to the BC the first time today, having previously seen the long line outside, we now came early to beat the crowd. Staff was pretty quick and attended to us. We ordered pancakes and a classic english breakfast and a fruit salad. GIven our expectations seeing the long lines everyday we were deeply disappointed. The full english was no better than what you find in any poor restaurant and the pancakes came with bacon which seemed to have been fried yesterday and only a few drops of maple syrup which made the dish very dry. So I will agree with the previous owner and go to The Elk in the Woods which is supposes to be very good. I hope that will not be my second disappointment in Camden Passage.

Disappointed Potential Customer

Arrived on a week day and thought great no long usual queue, waited ages to be seated despite the the fact it was pretty much empty. After the wait I took it upon myself to ask the blond lady behind the counter if we could sit outside, the table outside was filthy and stacked with plates so thinking someone had forgotten to clear it I returned back inside to ask the blond lady again if the table could be cleared. I was greeted with a look of annoyance and a snotty tone in her voice. In the end we felt unwelcome and left where we rather enjoyed a warm welcome, fantastic service and great food at the Elk In The Woods. The Breakfast Club has just lost two regular customers.
