Hello everyone. Hope you’ve all been doing well and enjoying how fast this year is going! I’m back with another post about my trip to The Breakfast Club.
Location: It was located in Angel, Camden with a less than 5 minute walk from Angel station. It is also a short bus journey from Kings Cross station.
Settings: Amazing! Lovely and warm atmosphere with the smell of food meeting you outside the door before you even entered. It fitted the Islington scene – old and rustic. It also had a homely feel, that helps you to feel immediately comfortable in the restaurant. The tables-for-two- were quite small and put together, so when all our food came it was a struggle to put it all together, however bigger tables can be requested, and for those with a bigger party.
They have vibrate settings of orange and yellows and browns. These colours, I feel, bring the place alive and brighten the place up.
Service: We were seated fairly quickly and we were catered form quickly and efficiently. If I needed a member of staff, there was always someone floating around to cater for what I was asking for. The service was fast and efficient and would make you want to visit countless times – something I plan to do soon!
On to the good stuff!
Main: “The All American” – £11.40 – Tinu’s sore – 4.5/5
The plate included pancakes, eggs, sausage, potatoes and with a small jug of maple syrup. In the morning, when you are looking for a good hearty breakfast – this is your plate.
One great thing about this dish was that you can have your eggs in three different ways. Poached, scrambled or fried. I decided to have it scrambled and I feel this went with the dish better. My boyfriend had his poached and it was two perfectly poached eggs. Runny in the middle.
Potatoes were light and crispy , bacon was crispy, and the sausage was meaty. The pancakes were airy and light and the maple syrup brought everything together. There was plenty on the plate and it will line up ones stomach for the rest of the day.
Side: Mac n Cheese – £3 – Tinu’s score – 2.9-3/5
If you are a greedy so and so just like I am, a main is never enough. I decided to go with some mac and cheese on the side. It was enjoyable, but I felt it was middle of the road. It had some taste, but I felt that it could have had a lot more cheese embedded through out. A little bit of salt had to be added just to adapt to me. However, overall, still nice and would go well with a meat based dish.
Hot Drink: Hot Chocolate – 3.20, with marshmallows. – Tinu’s score – 2/5
I felt that there was not much taste in this hot chocolate. The most enjoyable part of this hot chocolate was the lovely mug it came in and the marshmallows. Plenty spoons of sugar would need to be added in order to bring taste. But all in all, there are better hot chocolates out there to taste.
Cold Drink: Salted Caramel Shakes – £5.25 – Tinu’s score – 4/5
This was a very real thick milkshake. It was thick and creamy and and everything a milkshake good be. When a milkshakes has 6 scoops of vanilla ice-cream, you know that it going to be a big deal. It was also topped up with popcorn, so that was little treat on top of your drink!
Overall experience: – 4/5.
I think this is one of the best places to go for breakfast, brunch or dinner! Tasty food, warm atmospheres and good service. This place is great for a quick catch up, or when you are come back from a good shop in Oxford Street and want something to eat quickly. Good location, easy to find, with an affordable price. £15/£20 will go a long way here! No need to call to book ahead in the morning, just walk in and dine as you wish!
