The Breakfast Club Birthday Bottomless Brunch!

As I noted here, I was on holiday on my birthday this year. Now don’t get me wrong – I wouldn’t have changed that for the world. There’s literally nowhere I wanted to spend my birthday more than by the pool in Santorini, cocktail in hand! But it did mean I missed out on having a little celebration with my friends. So when I returned, I decided to organise a little get together. I didn’t have a lot of time so I just looked up brunches in my local area and found that the Breakfast Club in Canary Wharf offered ‘Dr Kluger’s Bottomless Boozy Brunch.’ 

Sounded pretty perfect, so I booked a table and off we went!

When you arrive at the Breakfast Club in the Wharf you look around slightly alarmed, because there don’t actually appear to be any tables! But then a waitress will take you by the arm and ask you, somewhat creepily if you ask me, if you’re here to see the doctor.

Say yes and you’ll be lead to a darkened corridor which, in all honesty, feels a lot like an emergency exit and might lead you to duck back into the restaurant and ask if you’re going the right way. But continue through and you’ll enter into the bar!

I found my friends already waiting for me around a low, wide table with squidgy sofas – possibly a bit impractical for messy brunch food but comfortable nonetheless. I opened some presents and we ordered our first round of drinks!

Bottomless prosecco costs £29 per person, which includes a main meal, and lasts for 2 hours – they keep replacing your drinks from the time you order the first one, basically. Unlike some brunch places, they put the bottle on your table (rather than topping up your glass – much easier) and they noticed as soon as the bottle was empty and replaced it, which I thought was brilliant service. You can also get bottomless beer if prosecco isn’t your thing!

Prosecco is definitely my thing. I loved these glasses too!

Next up food – the menu at the Breakfast Club is known for it’s amazing brunch choices and we were spoilt for options. I went for the Half Monty – poached egg and scrambled (I got two eggs as I hate baked beans!), sausage, bacon and tomato. Others went for pancakes or Huevos Rancheros.

The food came quickly and it was all so good. Like I say, the only thing I would change would be the tables – they were quite hard to eat from and with it being so big, it was hard to talk as a group so we were all constantly getting up and down and moving seats!

Once the food was gone we focussed in more on the drinking. The music was really good and we ended up having a mass singalong with the group opposite us to Queen and Guns n’ Roses – it’s dark and you do forget it’s only 4pm!

We staggered out into the harsh light of day and made our way back to my flat for more bubbles and dancing, which you may have seen if you are unfortunate enough to have me on Snapchat (@catscruse).

The Breakfast Club brunch was a fantastic way to celebrate a belated birthday – it’s definitely good for a party!
