“Sweets, you couldn’t ignore me even if you tried.” It was true when John Bender said it to Claire Standish in the movie ‘The Breakfast Club’ in 1985. It was equally true when I walked along Camden Passage in Angel and spotted the Breakfast Club Café. A few days later I met some friends for a typical English breakfast at the popular café. Some had the traditional beans with sausage, called The Full Monty. The girls ate pancakes with maple syrup and forest fruits. As a sweet tooth, I loved it!
Some fun facts:
- The interior is filled with random memorabilia of the owner’s bedroom, two children of the eighties. Of course there are some specific links to the movie that shares the same name. Since it was Movember, the place was taken over by moustaches. Can you spot them?
- According to the dating site ‘Doingsomething’ it’s a highly recommended place to have a date.
- The website looks like a colourful eighties computer game with matching original tunes. You should definitely have a look!
