The Breakfast Club
While its name references an era-defining movie and afternoons spent picking chewing gum off the underside of school desks, the cafe itself evokes broader memories of childhood.
It's a small, cosy space (a bit too cosy on weekends) that feels homely and many of the customers are regulars. Tea is served in teapots that are wrapped snugly in tea cosies and fresh flowers are placed on the tables next to nan’s napkin holders.
The menu highlights at The Breakfast Club are, perhaps unsurprisingly, the breakfast options: the baked egg dishes are a substantial way to start the day and cinnamon toast is a sweet delight. Some of the dishes even pay homage to childhood, like Baby Bear’s Porridge and the Bananarama.
As suggested by its name, this cafe is a place for early morning coffee and mid-morning treats, so get in early to bypass its relatively early closing time of 3:30pm.
