The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club

Release your inner cafness.

We are a caf.........Not a cafe, not a shop, not a branch, not a unit, not a restaurant. Just a caf.

There was also a time they called us a hipster hangout but thankfully that was just a passing phase. We don’t profess to being cool, because we’re not.

We make comfort food.

We make warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach food. We make ‘is my gran in your kitchen?’ food.

We make ‘3 star ethically sourced good for the planet’ food.

Everyone is welcome. Me, your mum, my grandad, your uncle Albert, little Jonnie and all our best pals. Everyone is welcome.

At one point we tried to save the world with varying degrees of success. But we’ll leave that to Greta as we feel she’s doing a much better job.

We’ll stick to being a caf and supporting our local communities.

The Breakfast Club opened the doors of its first yellow caf in 2005 on D’Arblay Street, Soho. Founded by best friends Jonathan Arana-Morton – and now sister-in-law – Alison Rooney, their vision was to create the sort of caf they loved when they were growing up – a place where everybody knew your name; a caf that was about more than just the food and drink you put in your belly, but the way it made you feel.

The Breakfast Club now has 13 cafs across London, Brighton, Oxford & Chelmsford including The Breakfast Pubs plus award-winning in-location cocktail bars, The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town & Call Me Mr Lucky.

And that’s not all. Born out of lockdown in the summer of 2020, The Breakfast Club launched an all day takeaway & delivery offering through Deliveroo & with just one year in the delivery game, they’ve twice been crowned Best Breakfast in the UK at the annual Deliveroo awards.

Not bad eh?!

In 2020 the world closed down. We all took time away from our day to day and we got to thinking what was important.

We didn’t learn anything new from our enforced separation, we just got a heavy dose of clarity. Family, friendships and well being - there is nothing more important. We’re not here to compete with that, we’re here to support that.

When you get into work, what’s important?

Our priority is each other - it always has been, we just never saw it so clearly. First and foremost we make sure today is a good day for each other. We have each others backs. Then, and only then, are we able to do right by our customers - wonderful food with an ‘arms wide open’ Breakfast Club welcome.

We may be a business of future rockstars, actors, producers, doctors, journalists, General Managers and Head Chefs. You may be with us for 3 months, you may be with us for 10 years. However long your stay with The Breakfast Club we will have your back and we will do everything we possibly can to make today and tomorrow a good day. So here’s a little something from us…

Something to work towards...

The Breakfast Club is a career and a place of opportunity. Yes - you may have stumbled into hospitality - didn’t everyone? But listen, hospitality is the world’s best kept secret.

We are extremely proud of promoting from within (90%+ of our senior cafe positions are occupied by people who have grown through the business) And there are numerous examples of people in head office roles who ‘stumbled’ into hospitality to become marketeers, board members, community champions and entrepreneurs.

Something to believe in...

We want you to be proud of where you work. We’d like you to give something back. Hospitality is all about taking care of people - it’s in our blood. It’s why we place such importance on our community volunteering program. 

During your time at the Breakfast Club you will be actively encouraged to play a role in your local communities through our volunteering program because ‘taking care of people’ is one of life’s great skills. We’ll support this - we’ll help you find the right opportunity and then we’ll pay you to do it. Rockstar fame and fortune might just be around the corner, but for now you’ll probably need all the cash you can get your hands on!
