A Dose Of America At The Breakfast Club Cafe In Soho

London Foodie Hotspots: The Breakfast Club Cafe In SohoImmediately on entering, it was obvious why there is always such a long line outside this cafe's doors - the place is tiny! Around five tables fill the space at the front by the juice bar, and in the small addition at the back, there is just barely enough space to fit another six. Don't expect to have a private conversation here - depending on where you're seated, you might be uncomfortably close to your fellow diners at the next table. Some might call this cozy, I call it cramped.

But what The Breakfast Club lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in personality. Named after the beloved 80's movie of the same name, the inside of the restaurant has been painted with colors just as vivid as the outside, and the decor is a nostalgic throwback to the decade with lots of Polaroid photos, vintage postcards and buttons, and even items from the owners' own childhood bedrooms covering the walls. Music from the likes of Depeche Mode, Madonna, and the Bangles plays softly in the background. Cafes may be a dime a dozen in London, but I've yet to visit one as delightful as this. Besides the food, the 80's theme was my favorite element of the place.


Speaking of the food, that's the other reason the line stretches all the way down the street on a busy day - it's really freakin' good! {You're impressed by my extensive vocabulary, aren't you?} But seriously, my Pancakes and Berries very nearly brought me to tears with how good they were. Like many of the items on the menu here, my pancakes were made "American-style" {read: big and fluffy}. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say the secret's in the flour. Every other pancake I've tried in the UK has fallen flat - pun intended - but not these babies. My brunch consisted of three good-sized pancakes topped with vanilla cream and loaded with strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries and then drizzled with real maple syrup - not that golden syrup crap they try to sell me at the grocery store. My mouth begins to water just from recalling the memory!

The type of food isn't the only thing that's American-style here, so are the portion sizes. After an hour and a half, this was what I had left and I sure did hate to leave it behind. Before I visited The Breakfast Club, I would have told you that no food is worth waiting in line for over an hour for, but I would have been wrong. I needed this little dose of America more than I realized!
