We've been here 4-5 times in the last years and each time we've had a different experience. Food is good - sometimes, the coffee is horrible...stick with Tea or water. Service is mixed. The atmosphere is mixed. The place needs to be upgraded.

I truly love this place. Have been stoping here for years and try to stop for lunch when I'm downtown. Great diner feel and have never had a bad meal or service. If they have quiche I recommend getting it.

First things first, this is now called the brunch club not the breakfast club. The one selling point is that the food is very affordable, but it's cheap for a reason, the food is just average. The omelette had a square of craft cheese melted on top of it. The whole restaurant looked pretty shabby and dirty, peeling wall paper... More

Walked here from our hotel one morning and the food was great. Very tasty and the amount of food you get is very filling! Pancakes are huge. Had the scramble with smoked sausage - it was really good! We didn't try the chicken and waffles but someone next to our table did and it looked amazing. Service was friendly and... More

This place holds a special place in my heart. I had my first meal after marriage here in 1971 when it was a White Tower. Now it is breakfast club cafe. Egg meals are the best. I now go by myself as my wife of 44 years has passed.

Always drove by from hotel to work in the morning and was curious about this little breakfast venue. No frills with super quick and attentive service. Unlike other reviewers, I thought the cinnamon roll was so-so but my fruit bowl was fresh and delightful! I'll be back to try eggs next time.

Now called The Brunch Club, this little diner is a no frills, but serves up a great breakfast. Their 3 egg omelette comes stuffed full of your favorite meat or veggies with a side of hash browns (with onions by request) and your choice of toast, pancakes or biscuits. The corned beef hash is also quite tasty. Great value for... More

I admit: I was skeptical when my husband took us to this place for breakfast. The inside is shabby and could use a good, thorough clean. After a short wait, we were seated, and I seriously wondered what we were getting ourselves into... However, the food was absolutely delicious. Both my son and I had the French toast (outstanding!), my... More

So I think the name of this place is The Brunch Club. We spotted it on our way to dinner and the theater one night and marked it as our breakfast spot for the following morning. Did NOT disappoint! Like any great downtown diner, the atmosphere was super laid back with outdated decor, an awkward layout, an eclectic crowd and... More
