Small but mighty, this is where it all began on D’Arblay Street in 2005. Gone are the days when we didn’t even serve eggs. Believe it or not it, it didn’t occur to us that a place called ‘The Breakfast Club’ would attract people looking for a fry-up, not just die-hard John Hughes fans. You’ll still find a queue whatever day of the week, luckily we’ve opened an equally beautiful caff just round the corner on Berwick St.
Now you may be thinking that Christmas won’t be the same, that maybe you need to hold back, that for some reason it might not be quite as good as other years and that maybe we just look forward to 2021. But listen, we’re all in, head first, Sleigh bells ringing, Rudolf red nosing, eggnogging, roasted sprouting, snogging under the mistletoe (well maybe not that) because if we’ve learnt anything this year it’s that we find a way and nothing but nothing is going to stop us getting ourselves the Christmas we all deserve.
Ps. We’ve used artistic license, taken our favourite quote from our favourite Christmas Film - Love Actually - and swapped ‘love’ for ‘Christmas’ - but hey, let’s get the shit kicked out of us by love too!
There was also a time they called us a hipster hangout but thankfully that was just a passing phase. We don’t profess to being cool, because we’re not.
We make comfort food.
We make warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach food. We make ‘is my gran in your kitchen?’ food. We make ‘3 star ethically sourced good for the planet’ food.
Everyone is welcome. Me, your mum, my grandad, your uncle Albert, little Jonnie and all our best pals. Everyone is welcome.
At one point we tried to save the world with varying degrees of success. But we’ll leave that to Greta as we feel she’s doing a much better job. We’ll stick to being a caf and supporting our local communities.
Release your inner cafness.
Our D’Arblay St caf doesn’t take bookings & is walk-in only.
