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 an impressive nine follow-ups, including this doozy: The Breakfast Club Canary Wharf.
It 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 selected, 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 The Breakfast Club’s other London 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. And as always, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, meaning you’ll find it served from open to close.
2) The drink. Of course, as we’ve come to expect from The Breakfast Club, 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, burgers, quality sandwiches, beer and cocktails with one of the area’s most competitive happy hours, and the option to go entirely bottomless during dinner, Thursday – Saturday. Which we are here legally obliged to clarify refers to the drinks, and not your attire.
3) The entertainment. When they’re not too busy piling up pancakes, The Breakfast Club Canary Wharf also plays host to a big, boozy, bottomless Saturday afternoon party (why pretend it’s brunch: this is pre-drinks) with two hours of non-stop fizz, Bloody Maries, and beer.
It’s pint-sized fun.
