Eat. The Breakfast Club
— 12 Sep 2017, 21:18
This hip American-style breakfast joint shares its name with one of the most iconic movies of the 1980's. It also happens to dish up some of the meanest plates, shakes and cocktails in the country.
Yes, it's The Breakfast Club, a restaurant so embedded in British culture now that its menu, events and secret speakeasies have become the stuff of legend. Since arriving in Croydon with the launch of Boxpark in 2016, The Breakfast Club's mega menu has been satisfying tastebuds throughout the borough and providing a delicious range of sumptuous cocktails to enjoy on our rooftop terrace, to perfectly ease you into the weekend.
The Breakfast Club also happens to be the prize in this week's Free Food Friday draw!
That's right! YOU, yes, you, reading this from your smartphone, could be in with the chance to win a meal of your choice for both you and a friend this coming Friday. Did someone say Friyay?! No, no...I can't pull that off. I'm sorry.
Anyway, should you possibly need a reason to jump on board and be in it to win it, here's a rundown of what's on offer...
Yeah, I know right, duh, it's in the title, but seriously - Breakfast! With a capital B!
To go through the entire selection of dishes on offer would take forever. It would probably take until breakfast time tomorrow to breakdown everything you can possibly order, but that's a good thing, because there's so much choice.
So, let's pick out some favourites. These aren't personal favourites either. These are YOUR tried and tested/tasted favourites.
The All American - Okay, this is England and we like our eggs with ketchup and our bacon with brown sauce but hear me out - bacon, pancakes and maple syrup go SO well together. So well. It's not just a stack of hearty American fair either, you also get your fair share of eggs, sausages and those tasty home-style potatoes too.
The Posh Sausage Sandwich - This is a staple of fine British cuisine and I won't hear otherwise but, at The Breakfast Club, they do it with a twist. Every bite of this delicious sarnie is fused with the strong flavours of a mushroom and red onion chutney and a nice, big slice of Applewood cheese - you know, the smoked one!
And for you vegetarians there's even more good news - you can have your eggs any way you like them, honest. There's also a butternut bubble and squeak and an artichoke and tomato hash for your dining pleasure too.
Lunch & Dinner
What? You thought it was all about breakfast? This is 2017.
We're gonna speed-rush the lunch and dinner menu because I want to give you a mouth-watering checklist of dishes that will get your stomach rumbling, so, here goes:
There are burritos, chicken wraps, burgers, sandwiches, waffles, grilled cheese, salads, pancakes, mac & cheese fritters, nachos, fries, chilli, meatballs, tacos, pulled pork *inhales* and brunch!
Hungry? We thought you might be.
Drinks & Shakes
You can't dine Americano without a thick and tasty shake at your side. Unless maybe you're lactose intolerant, in which case, you're off the hook. If you're not then you'll be pleased to know there are a number of tasty shakes on offer, but the real winner on the menu is the 'Elvis' with peanut butter and banana.
There are also some healthier options of course! You can choose from a selection of fresh smoothies and soft drinks and, for the grown ups amongst you, there's even a refreshing range of colourful cocktails for you to enjoy too.
So, if you and a friend have yet to visit The Breakfast Club and you fancy a free meal to kick start your weekend, then head over to Boxpark Croydon's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and get liking and tagging!
Good luck and happy eating!
