Save Ferris. The Story Of The Breakfast Club
It could have all been so different. Two children of the 80s, searching for that elusive name for their first cafe in Soho…
‘The Breakfast Club’ could easily have been ‘St Elmo’s’ or ‘Save Ferris’. Chickens and pigs would have breathed a sigh of relief. But it was not to be and The Breakfast Club was born in 2005 when we moved into a small cafe on D’Arblay Street in Soho, painted the front egg yolk yellow and filled the place with junk from our childhood bedrooms.
The Lucky Trolls seemed to have worked, we built it and you came (thank you!).
In 2007 we opened on the lovely Camden Passage in Angel and then in 2009 East London beckoned in the form of the skinny jeans capital of the world, Hoxton. In May 2011, exactly two years after Hoxton we moved into our new home in Spitalfields along with our first dirty little secret, The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town. Another two years down the line and we went South of the River for the first time, opening on Battersea Rise (Hello Yummy Mummys!) in May 2013. Through the launderette, The King of Ladies Man opened his pad and has since knocked up many notches on his SW11 bedpost. August 2014 saw us TAKING IT TO THE BRIDGE, with our new BC six opening just round the corner from Borough Market in London Bridge. Call Me Mr Lucky also came along for the ride.
Look out for new additions to the BC family in Canary Wharf and Brighton (our first caf outside of London) in May and June. For all the latest news on openings or events sign up to the BC mailing list.
