There's not a lot to say other than you have to try it. Best breakfast around. You can get more for less at other places, but the food just isn't the same. And you can't beat the strawberries at the end of the meal. When they have sweet potato tots they're a must-have breakfast appetizer.

I used to enjoy this place. Won't be going back. Brighton lacks a great breakfast place. We needs good heathly choices and vegetarian options. Look at menus like at First Watch. Please get more creative. How about a avocado option????

This is the place if you like pancakes that you need to go. Oversized and three to an order, you will be hard pressed to eat them all. Good omelets too just in case you are really hungry. Lots of other specialties that are not for the timid. Only downside: Coffee is just OK and not a whole lot of... More

The food is fantastic. Go there whenever I am in Brighton. Try the baked French Toast or any of the omelettes you won't believe how good they are. Atmosphere is good and wait staff is excellent.

We LOVE this place. We have been to a lot of breakfast places, but none are better that the Breakfast Club. Their menu selections are very creative and fun to eat. Daily specials are always noteworthy. The staff is extremely pleasant and they strive to please. I was served the Crab, Asparagus & Hollandaise Omelet with the fabulous Tomatoes Au... More

The food was great and the service was pretty good. The waitress seemed a little aloof. You would say things to her and she would all of a sudden say something to tell group and walk away. We had to ask for the first cup of coffee multiple times. She just seemed a spacey, but she was friendly.

Breakfast here with friends. Haven't been here in years-worth the trip. Very nice decor and atmosphere. The wait staff is very attentive. Don't be afraid to ask questions-they are more than happy to answer questions or recommend dishes. We arrived before the morning rush or else there would have been a wait. I enjoyed the sweet potato puffs-a must try,... More

This is our go-to breakfast place in Brighton. If you're here on a weekend morning, expect to wait. I promise it'll be worth it! The service has always been excellent. The servers usually stock around, so if you're a regular, you see old friends everytime you visit. If you're new, they'll still tea you like an old friend. The coffee... More
