If you know me well, actually, if you know me at all, then you’ll probably be familiar with my obsession with all things romantic. Don’t mistake me for referring to cringe, over the top, social media based displays of affection – far from it. The notion of old school romance has been a major storyline of my life and cult 80’s classics definitely influenced the narrative of my own formative years. My best friends still to this day chastise me for my extraordinary expectations of romance and it’s probably fair to say my love life would thank me for listening to them. (Not that I’m going to anytime soon.)  Name me an 80’s film and I’ll probably have watched it, and if not, I’ll probably have to cancel all plans for the foreseeable future until I have. Say Anything, Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles are 3 of the most obvious, but nonetheless brilliant movies to emerge from the era, and the champion of all indisputably has to be the obvious John Hughes classic. I found The Breakfast Club when I was about sixteen years old, going through a turbulent time as all sixteen year olds do, and in it I found a sense of comfort and rebellion that sat very well with me.

While The Breakfast Club restaurants have come a long way since two “children of the 80’s” pinched the name for their new start café in Soho, their world-renowned restaurants still serve as the perfect spot to celebrate the nostalgia that comes with the past. And what better way to celebrate than with food?

A couple of weeks ago, my best friend and I trotted down South and naturally had to make a quick stop at the breakfast mekka of London. We popped into the Spitalfields branch for a bacon sandwich and cup of builder’s tea, and boy did it not disappoint. I think I paid something around the £5 mark for my breakfast, and it was genuinely the perfect early morning filler. The staff were brill, the atmosphere was cheery and the soundtrack to our breakfast is one I would quite like to soundtrack my life. With the overwhelming chatter about newer, prettier, shinier breakfast establishments it would be easy to overlook the BC, but if you’ve got half the chance I would definitely encourage you to call in and experience the magic for yourself.

Sometimes old news is the best news.

Until next time,
