Saturday was Rob’s birthday and to begin the celebrations he wanted to go out for a cooked breakfast. Our previous breakfast hangout used to be Seven Bees, which we still love but now it’s based in St Georges in Kemptown it’s not open at the weekends. I’d heard great things about The Breakfast Club, a London-based chain that has recently opened up shop in Brighton so thought we’d head there.
As soon as we walked in it had a really nice atmosphere, they were playing 80s music and had group photographs on the walls. It was busy but we arrived at a good time and managed to bag a table in a booth.

The service was fast and the waitress took our drinks order straight away. I asked what kinds of milk they had (as it didn’t say on the menu). As well as cow’s milks they had soya milk and almond milk so I opted for a big mug of tea with almond milk and Rob had a flat white coffee. For breakfast, Rob ordered The Full Monty which had bacon, sausage, black pudding, eggs, home-style fried potatoes, mushrooms, baked beans, grilled tomato and a toasted multigrain bloomer. His only negative comment was that the bloomer was popped on top of everything on the plate rather than its own side plate – though that’s of course very minor as he could have easily asked for another plate!
I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toasted rye bread (it’s supposed to come with multigrain toast but I paid 50p extra to swap it for rye bread). I also ordered a side of avocado. I was totally in my element, it was gorgeous!
I’d definitely go back again, I’m a Breakfast Club convert.
