The day after my birthday, I planned a day of pampering, relaxation and “me” time. It started with having breakfast solo at The Breakfast Club – one of my favourite breakfast spots. A friend was meant to come with me but cancelled last minute, so I plucked up the courage to go by myself. And I loved it.
My main reason for choosing The Breakfast Club was because I wanted to try its new vegan addition to the menu: the Beauregarde Pancakes. These were gluten free pancakes (a bit annoying because I’m not gluten free) with warm blueberry compote, complete with Oatly cream and maple syrup.
I also ordered bacon, because how can you not have pancakes with bacon, and avocado because I am crushing on this fruit and am obsessed with its health benefits.
To drink, I had the cold pressed green juice – spinach, celery, lemon, apple and ginger. Anything with ginger and apple in it and I am sold.
I didn’t like the consistency of the pancakes because they were gluten free, making them drier than I am used to. They weren’t too sweet, but the blueberry compote added a natural sweetness.
I love that the cream was Oatly, because that’s the alternative I use on a day-to-day basis.
The breakfast was satisfying and I would definitely order it again.
