When a restaurant is named for a meal, you know it's their specialty. Such is the case at The Breakfast Club, which serves up home-style morning fare every day of the week.

But in cheerful defiance of its moniker, the eatery has also expanded into the tasty realms of lunch and dinner. Diner-style entrees such as classic BLTs, half-pound burgers, and chili cheese dogs arrive tableside, along with hearty steaks or chicken and waffles. Desserts continue the comfort-food tradition with strawberry shortcake and decadent milkshakes loaded with candy bar pieces or chips of imported icebergs.
