The world’s smallest disco in the toilets made me laugh!
Very bad service, I'm not impressed at all.
I came here with a friend, the place wasn't too busy yet we were made to wait quite a while to be seated, then again the food took 30 minutes. And that is 30 minutes for a small breakfast in a normal not so busy day.
They finally started moving faster when I said they either bring the food or I leave.
Anyhow. The food itself wasn't bad. But there's plenty other places in the area with nicer food and better custome service.

Any place that states, "toilet and worlds smallest disco" has got to be a good place to me!
If you want pancakes, syrup, bacon, eggs good quirky atmosphere then get here!
It is bigger and better than the one in Angel.
Go and check it out.

This is a really funky place to meet up with friends to have a GREAT!! breakfast/brunch.
You may have to wait a while for a seat, well worth it though..Great atmosphere and friendly staff.
"Green eggs and Ham, followed by a peanut butter and banana milkshake!! don't knock it until you try it...deeelicous!
I loved this place! A group of 4 of us headed there for Sunday brunch, and the 1 hour journey was definitely well-rewarded with a really awesome breakfast and smoothies. It has an awesome vibe inside, the portions are really generous and it's good value for money. I will definitely be going again!
Last night we were walking around Hoxton and we spotted it, and after seeing that huevos rancheros were on the menu, we decided we had to go the next morning. We got there at noon and there was a fairly substantial queue, but that didn't dissuade us as I always figure, if there's a line, then they're doing something right. We wait maybe a half hour and get in, the the decor was very homey and lived in. For someone who is used to eating in more grand places, this probably wouldn't be for you. I found the decor really charming and fun. Once inside we really didn't have to wait long to order or for our food to arrive, it seemed we had just ordered 5 minutes before and they were already out.
I got the huevos rancheros without the chorizo (as I'm vegetarian although I bet the refried beans were fried in animal fat, oh well), and that was quite nice. The portion was pretty much perfect for me, and I guess you could say I have an average-above average appetite. The refried beans were much better than most I've had before, and the guacamole was also quite good. It was a proper messy dish, which is exactly how I like my Hispanic food :D
I'd 100% go there again, next time with a bigger crowd, as it has such a friendly atmosphere and its the sort of place I just want to share with everyone else.
I know it's supposed to be an Aussie style place but there's something about this place that reminds me of favourable dining experiences back in the States.
The menu is gratuitously comfort food, a good bit of the seating is generously spacious and the prices (though far from budget) won't set you back too much.
I love the burgers. Chilli's good also. Service is generally receptive and without any Hoxton Square attitude (and they don't seem to mind if you linger over your laptop in the afternoon). Win.
Shoreditch’s reinvention of the typical greasy spoon café. I would recommend this place to everyone - from people burned out from the night before and in need of refuelling to fresh-faced creative types looking for a cool breakfast meeting location to impress the clients. I had The Half Monty which was basically half a fry-up (I was too sober for a Full Monty) and it was absolutely delicious. Good sized portions, plenty of people watching to be done and decent prices.
I continue to return to The Breakfast Club because it's location is convenient, the breakfast burrito rocks my world, and the atmosphere makes me happy.
The service is borders on obnoxiously slow, which only really bothers me when I'm ready to pay and leave.
I always have a good time when I go and they have a nice happy hour, so that increases the fun. It seems to be my friends' choices too when we're wondering where to go for any meal of the day or just a coffee and a chat. Seems like we all pretty much enjoy it.
I loved this place!
The Breakfast Club in Shoredich has a distinctive style, typical of the East London scene. Decorated with various vintage objects and furnished with a range of tables, sofas and chairs of different size and colour, this place offers a wide choice of delicious dishes. You can go for delicious burritos and other food of the Mexican tradition or opt tasty burgers accompanied by old-style roasted potatoes. The place is also recommended for Sunday brunches (large range of delicious options) or just for enjoying its healthy creative juices, such spinach and yogurt mojito.
The problems with The Breakfast Club, start with its name. Neither is it anything breakfast related, not anything to do with the awesome 80s movie of the same name. It is in fact an Aussie diner. Who would have guessed?
After all that, as if that wasn't enough it is downhill from there. With £9 burritos and a less than inspired menu.
if you are looking for a proper breakfast then head to The Diner around the corner, or any of the other venues in Shoreditch offering up the best kind of English Breakfast. If for lunch or anything else there are plenty of equally good options in Hoxton Sq and beyond.
I went to TBC on more than one occasion both here and in Soho, but won't be rushing back any time soon.
it's a cool place full of shoredictch hipsters. Be prepared to wait for a table and then wait some more for service, it's pretty hit and miss. They lost our drinks orders and by the time we managed to flag down a passing waiter to reorder we had finished all our food and it seemd a bit pointless. I had pancakes with fruit and some kind of weird cream that didn't melt even when it came into contact with warm pancakes. Do not go here if you are in a rush. I probably won't be heading back anytime soon.
I loved this place!
It has a real retro feel to it and seems to be separated into 'rooms' - dining room, kitchen and lounge!
They have really thought through the decor in here and made it a lovely atmosphere. They also played some brilliant retro tunes as well!
We opted for the cocktails of rhappy hour (£4 - usually £6) and between us had nachos, fried hallumi, burritos and wedges. Yum! Really good food!
One of the highlights has to be the toilets! They are all decked out with retro wall paper - one if covered floor to celiging in ghost-busters wallpaper! And there is a disco ball in the waiting area to keep you occupied in a queue!
It'd be a really good place for a first date!
I love the bc- particually this one.
it's the biggest out of the three - so
no ques and I just love the way it's hidden down a hoxton back street.
the bc is (as the name suggests!) the place to come for brekkie or brunch.
I personally reccommend the eggs benedict or the breakfast club original chorizo hash browns!!
just to say around 11-2 there may be a small que defo on weekends.
also old street tube is the nearest- take exit 2 (quite confusing as old st tube is under the roundabout thus about 8 exits)
ohhh and don't forget a button badge!!

shabby chic, funky atmosphere.
I drank a virgin mojito and had a hulmi wrap and loved both.
the bread and olive oil wasn’t great and the mezza platter was overwhelming and disappointing simultanoisly.
that said enjoyed the evening and the staff were great
I quite liked this place early in the morning, right before I had a flight to catch. The space is open and bright, friendly and relaxed. The music was a bit too 80’s and a bit too loud for B that early in the morning. Their toast, a big, very thick slice was tasty. You won’t need much else for breakfast afterwards.
My tea was just fine, B’s coffee was deemed “quite good”. They offer more substantial breakfasts, plus salads and burgers for lunch/dinner. There’s also a takeaway bar, particularly good for your morning coffee. They do the whole range of espresso drinks.
Very friendly vibe, usually busy in the evenings. When they open the windows, it’s especially nice.
There’s a cute room in the back that can be reserved for groups as well. Oh, and the loos are quite fun.
