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."

Always a queue outside so that has to count for something! Inside is decorated in a rather eclectic way. As you queue you are greeted with pictures of previous diners strung up on old metal school pegs and disposable cameras so you can take your own to be added to the collection.

Well decorated and a good variation on the menu, cool atmosphere.

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.
Although I've wanted to try this place for a while it's only recently I managed. It was worth the wait.
The food was lovely and the staff were very pleasant and genuine.
We then saw the Mayor for some of the best cocktails I've had. A special mention to George who made my an off menu cocktail which is a particular favourite of mine.
I loved the fact the venue was quite small and intimate...more
