Time Out says

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.

Fans of John Hughes will rejoice at their dining experience in any one of the Breakfast Club's eight branches (including one in Brighton). Each is unique and filled to the brim with non-cheesy ’80s memorabilia. The menu boasts an American diner vibe, with deli sandwiches and buttermilk fried chicken to boot. When you walk into this Canary Wharf branch, you won't fail to spot the humungous disco ball glittering above the entrance. This alludes to the fact that here you'll be able to get a bite to eat, as well as have a boogie, play boozy bingo or catch a live act.

I absolutely love the food here - it's a definite winner for Sunday brunch. The only drawback is that because it's so busy, the service can be a little shaky. You have to question something when you don't get water until halfway through your meal, and your drinks don't arrive until you're almost done. 

That said, the food is delicious and there are some good options for a lovely brunch meal!


Not as good as the Shoreditch branch, but if you’re in the area, hungry and love breakfast then this place is nice. The portions are always generous – the pancake stack is a proper stack – and the service is friendly too. It isn’t the best avo on toast I’ve ever add but it certainly wasn’t bad and the coffee was pretty good too and if you like a retro-throwback soundtrack to your breakfast, then this is the place for you!


A diner-style restaurant that's stuck in time, serving breakfast all day. If you head here at a ungodly hour, before 12 pm, you're likely to have to queue to get in. The restaurant is decorated with an 80's charm, the walls are clad in veneer and the furniture is like something you'd find at grans, in a good way.

I have been here before for an event and it's a great space for events!

The food is american-style breakfast. I had the veggie all-american a delicious spread of mushrooms, eggs, potato's, vegetarian sausage, and pancakes. I recommend their Elvis shake, a peanut butter and banana milkshake or their salted caramel shake.

I will definitely be back for more!


I first visited Breakfast Club in Angel a few years ago and actually waited in the queue to try the food everyone raved about. It was ok then but this time round when I visited it was horrendous. Our food took 30 minutes to be served and generally the service was slow. After waiting for 25 minutes we asked a waitress where our food was only to be told that it normally takes that long on a weekend. We were never told this when we entered the restaurant.

Then the food we had..i had eggs Benedict which lacked seasoning. My brothers had waffles and chicken which also were bland. I will most definitely not be waiting in the queue again.


Fans of the 1985 film "The Breakfast Club" or born in the 1980's and feeling nostalgic? This is the place for you! Filled with 80's memorabilia, an arcade section and a stage, it looks like being taken directly from a film. The vibe is that of an American diner, where you can choose whether to order take away or stay. The menu is rich in delicious meals, for instance, I went for a dinner with friends and opted for an "Halloumi, Avocado & Butternut Squash burger" topped with sour cream and Sriracha, while my friends had "The Full Monty" which is bacon, sausage, black pudding, eggs, potatoes, mushrooms, beans and a multigrain bloomer and "Chilli Bowl" which is beef chili,jalapeños and sour cream, served with rice and chips; but really, there's wide choice of food for all tastes ranging from burgers to salads, tacos and desserts (we had "Pancakes & Berries" with maple syrup and vanilla cream which are really worth it).The restaurant serves breakfast, but also brunch and dinner (and meal portions are really generous). The staff is friendly and the prices are far from being expensive (aside from the drinks, but it is quite difficult to find restaurants where drinks'  prices are what can be defined as not expensive at all). Overall, it's a really great place, you should definetely give it a try!
