The Breakfast Club is one of the first landmarks as you drive into town along the 203. So if you're starving, and looking for the first available food, this might be a good choice. We were starving, just rolling into town, and needed a place to sit outside with our dog so for us it fit the bill.
I knew better than to try to park in the super-congested parking lot that BC shares with the tiny strip mall and uber-busy gas station, so I parked at Rite Aid and called ahead to make sure there was outdoor seating available (on the micro-sized outdoor patio) for our ever-so-adorable but also gigantic dog, Thor. We were told there was plenty of seating so headed across the street. Couldn't have taken more than 4 minutes flat.
Apparently, a lot can change in 4 minutes because even if there was plenty of seating, and they were still open, the server had less than no interest in serving us. She encouraged us (verbally but also with effusive eye-rolling, head nodding, and neck cracking) not to sit, but go elsewhere. It was, in a word, awkward. I feel fairly confident that it had little to do with us, and more to do with some interpersonal staff drama we were unaware of. An older, possibly more self-aware server soon came to the rescue, helping us find dog-friendly seating and eventually bringing us menus.
Life is tough for servers in a tourist town.
The food was fine-- I think? My recollection of the food is completely overshadowed by my clear memory of the ... awkwardness. So you'll have to evaluate the food primarily from the photos.
Bottom line: unless we are starving, rolling into town, and are desperate to bring our dog, I probably won't go back.
