The Breakfast Club Canary Wharf

The Breakfast Club never got a sequel.

That is, the seminal ’80s coming-of-age movie The Breakfast Club. Not the Soho-based brunch spot. Because that has seven follow-ups, and counting.

The latest is Canary Wharf-based, and looks like the lovechild of a glitzy casino and a 1970s working men’s club, with wooden tongue-and-groove wall panelling, retro tangerine lino and, naturally, a giant custom-made disco ball in the entrance hall.

And, just for you – in a manner not entirely dissimilar to the chefs skilfully preparing your breakfast – we have picked, diced up and artfully arranged the tastiest bits of the establishment thus:

1) The food. You’ll find all the classics that inspire those loyal queues round the block at their other branches – not just staples like pancakes and bacon, eggs royale and the full English; but twists like the artichoke and sun blush tomato hash, and the Mexican breakfast classic, huevos rancheros – fried eggs with refried beans and chorizo.

2) The drink. Of course, as we’ve come to expect from TBC, there’s more to this eatery than meets the eye. Head down a corridor and you’ll find yourself in the Breakfast Pub – a less successful 80s film, but a very successful evening den serving er, more breakfast, quality sandwiches, beer and cocktails.

3) The entertainment. When they’re not too busy piling up pancakes, the Club also plays host to a big, boozy, bottomless Saturday afternoon party (why pretend it’s brunch: this is pre-drinks) with a fleet of all-singing, all-dancing drag queens to serenade you through 2 hours of non-stop fizz, beer and party games.

Needed a new party spot? Bingo.

 

NOTE: The Breakfast Club Canary Wharf is open daily 8am-4pm, with the Pub open Tues-Sat, 4-10pm. You can reserve yourself a table HERE.
