The legendary lines shouldn't put anyone off going here for a nice breakfast (secret: bring coffee while you wait)

I love The Breakfast Club and go there every time I'm in Islington. Long line? Well worth the wait (although if you're there early in the AM, you'll not experience the line). Tables outside among the funky market stalls of Camden Passage? Resist- eat inside with the wild 80s-esque soundtrack and the hipster waitstaff so willing and able to please. Need your mega cappucino with non-dairy milk? Sure. Love a little lime-infused avocado with your organic poached egg? It will become a favorite of yours. Smoothie? Oh, there are so many, you'll have to come back all day and night. And you can, too. Go with friends, with a love interest (there are many, many just woke up from a wild night couples on a late Sunday morning), with families or on your own. It is ALWAYS fun. And delicious. And appropriately priced. And healthy. Really, there is nothing wrong with the place.
LOVE it!

Although everyone know the famous London 'BC' now, it would not stop me from going.
The food is very comforting and yummy.
If you are after a low fat/ carb meal the I wouldn't suggest here but if you fancy a proper weekend brunch then get in the queue!
The coffee could be a little stringer for my personal taste, although they are made well by the coffee barista with the beans they have.
The all American pancakes are awesome and as are the breakfast burrito's :)

The staff work really hard to serve everyone and be friendly at the same time and I always think 'good on them'.

Thanks BC....

We came to this place on recommendation, and weren't disappointed.
Note: arrive reasonably early if you want to avoid the queue, which can get quite long, particularly at weekends!
Huge menu with about the best selection I have seen in a long time.
As a spiff, we each had a breakfast cocktail to begin - haven't done that in a while, which made it all the more enjoyable.
We each made our own selections and when the plates arrived were suitably impressed. Good sized helpings and very tasty food, most enjoyable.
Finished off with a nice coffee each and a couple of pancakes to share which just sealed the deal.
Friendly helpful staff, and a definitely different place!
Will try and come again when down in London and, can certainly recommend.

Been here for pancakes, which were average. Breakfast was decent, despite being undercooked. Would come here again, but nothing special.
