Tucked away on a side street opposite Liverpool Street Station, The Breakfast Club Spitalfields doesn't have the usual bright egg-yolk yellow frontages of the other BC cafes - but as you'll soon find out, we like to keep a little mystery here. Once inside, the usual Breakfast Club quirks are present; from our famous neon "Sex, Drugs & Bacon Rolls" sign to the Sega Mega Drive console. Top tip for those who've yet to visit: Tell staff you're "here to see The Mayor."

We spent so long waiting to order/have our plates collected/get the bill/pay the bill that we were in two minds about just...more
We queued for 45 minutes or an hour get in on a Sunday for brunch. In the cold. In a bit of rain. Maybe that's what made it all go wrong but by the time we were finally seated, I was a bit over it, to be honest.
The music was loud so the talking was all even louder. The hipsters were out in full force. I imagine half of London's Instagram traffic was going through this one location.
I've been wanting to go to the Breakfast Club for a while - after all , brinner is for winners. So we were in town (although at brunch time) and nearby so decided to give it a go.
First off, the queue was about 45 minutes long. I figured it was all people wanting to see the Mayor but nope, all there for breakfast. I had expected it to be more eighties themed but aside from a Commodore 64 box...more
