It could have all been so different. Two children of the 80s, searching for that elusive name for their first cafe in Soho… ‘The Breakfast Club’ could easily have been ‘St Elmo’s’ or ‘Save Ferris’. Chickens and pigs would have breathed a sigh of relief. But it was not to be and The Breakfast Club was born in 2005 when they moved into a small cafe on D’Arblay Street in Soho, painted the front egg yolk yellow and filled the place with junk from their childhood bedrooms. The Lucky Trolls seemed to have worked, they built it and you came. In 2007 they opened on the lovely Camden Passage in Angel and then in 2009 East London beckoned in the form of the skinny jeans capital of the world, Hoxton.

They’re big on their breakfasts (did the name give that away?) serving up everything from the traditional English to Pancakes and Eggs Benedict. Worried about fitting into the skinny jeans? Try they mueslis, porridge or fruit salads.

As the day progresses they move on to a range of wraps, burgers, burritos, pies, sharing plates and salads. All this washed down with fairtrade lattes, smoothies and a range of beers, wines and cocktails (though unfortunately not in Soho).
