The Breakfast Club, unsurprisingly, does excellent all-day breakfasts that are the kind of thing you dream about while being pummeled at Barry’s Bootcamp (not that we ever get up in time to go). It’s easy to get to from the station, and though you’re not getting any points for originality by coming here, the food always hits the spot. There’s a brekky for every occasion here - pancakes and waffles for savage hangovers, or things with avocado and kale for weekday catchups. If you’re exhausted by the prospect of looking for lunch or dinner around the station, or joining the queue for Padella, they also have solid burgers and salads later in the evening.
