The other night me and my friends headed down for a few pitchers at The Breakfast Club in Spitelfields. Undoubtedly these lil’ loves do the best breakfasts in town, but don’t rule out evenings here, they can be even better! Cosy on down with my favourite, the ‘Comfort Food’ menu or dig in to the huuuuge BC Burgers with applewood smoked cheddar and all the toppings.
Like any raved place, it tends to get pretty busy but thankfully that’s what gives it the buzz! So be patient and enjoy the weird and wonderful objects that line the queue – these are all from the owner’s childhoods! Have a little read of the gate pegged notes and drawings left by their loyal customers – some of them are hilar.
The vibe is very New York basement meets East London pie and mash shop – stuck in a blender with a pinch of arty eccentricity and VOILAAA, the breakfast club is served.
Definitely shaken. Not stirred.
Everything goes here. Crowds are a fashionable mix between the mad fash-packs, the young bankers, the pretty school teachers and the ex-crims…
Well I did say everything goes!
Everyone is welcome to come and have a good time and a good time you shall most definitely have.
My sigh of relief was probably heard from space once I found out they still offer Pimms pitchers outside the summer months. With just one taste, I was instantly transformed back to the warm days full of park lounging and tanned skin. Heav-en-ly.
After the first few pitchers were vanished, It was time to parrr-taaaay.
We had a little word with the waitress who led us to a secret door behind a fridge. We were led to the basement to found a heavenly surprise.
This is why I love London – it’s all about quirky findings. It’s the city to forget the big namers and to listen out to the little gems.
The exposed brick walls and darkly lit surroundings created a sexy but chilled atmosphere. The cocktail staff were humorous and the drinks menu mocked the names of snobbier venues – my type of cocktail bar.
The soulful music created a vibe where some chose to simply sit and drink up whilst others enjoyed a little dance in-between tables.
The tables are very close to each other which is great for chatting to tipsy neighbours which inevitably leads to more drinks. Slash shots.
Unless saying please or thank you.
They even offer a cracking food menu! The cocktails filled me up a treat but I’m keen to revisit for some hearty snacks soon!
Did I mention I met Grace in the toilet…
This is such a good place to go with friends for a chilled one with a great atmosphere.
