On every trip I go to, the morning before fly out always goes in a flash. By the time I get on the plane, settle in and finally arrived at my home destination, more often than not I feel as though I have just ran a marathon. Whether its that shitty budget airline Easyjet or the 1 hour train ride from the airport to my apartment, I always end up feeling pretty spent and dinner-less. So on my last day in London it was time to build the reserves. This time, I was at the Breakfast Club in Hoxton.
The venue serves the American/English for breakfast in an pub-styled cafe with familiar music in the background. To start up the morning (which I woke up feeling super hungry), was a Peanut Butter Milkshake.
Good old Peanut Butter Milkshake £5. Just the month before when Shake Shack in Convent Garden ran out of their special “peanut butter” for my shake, I left London feeling defeated. So when the Breakfast Club had it on their menu, I was sold. The milkshake was spot on when it came to its consistency. Unfortunately the sweet-salty balance was hanging a little on the sweet side. I needed perhaps one more generous scoop of peanut butter. A satisfying drink nonetheless.
The full Monty w/ fried eggs £11
Its all your usual suspects gathering on a plate this morning. You have the toast, eggs, crisp bacon, meaty sausages, sauteed shrooms, pan fried potatoes, beans and of course, baked beans. The full Monty was hard to go wrong with and yes, nothing went wrong. The big breakfast was a great morning fuel for a long day but then again, it was also a very average breakfast that you could find anywhere in London but it was something you had to have in London.
The Breakfast Club in Hoxton had no queue when we were there at 9.45am and that is exactly what I look for where possible. Fuss free diners to kickstart my mornings. Pair that with good service and a decent food experience to get the Breakfast Club Hoxton. The food I had was not the healthiest for sure but it was rather comforting. However, comforting while good can also be bad when you eat what I eat. In this case, it was safe to say that the only thing I will not be doing after the meal was a medical check up.
