    I'd heard this place is overpriced, yet I was still a bit shocked by how flagrant it is. Perhaps the owner should scale back the staff--does such a small place with a limited menu really need nearly a dozen employees?

    Had the" Pumpkin Shakshouka" over the weekend. The dish was in quotation marks so I knew it wasn't going to be an authentic shakshouka, but it was a tiny serving of pumpkin soup with a poached egg in it. The egg didn't even seem poached in the pumpkin so not sure why they term it "shakshouka" except maybe to make it sound more exotic than it really is. It was pretty basic and amateurish though the little piece of bread that came with it was good enough. Be prepared for a second breakfast/brunch/lunch after eating at this place, that's what my group had to do. Better yet, skip this place and dine somewhere with price-appropriate portions and ingredients.

    Overall, lacking substance and cruel as it sounds, I hope this place doesn't survive lest it begets a spate of similar simple food-high priced western eateries. Maybe it's already too late...

    Its a very nice little place, but not so much value for money... Specially to be a breakfast place. With those prices you can get a full meal/combo in a similar place.

    They have potential but they have to work better on their pricing and menu...

    And to be able to pay with card!

    It's been a long time in the making, and I've been waiting patiently to get in on the final product, having been lucky enough even to get a "sneak peak" at a previous Shanghai Supper Club catered by the lovely Camden herself, and it's here. On this less than sunny Sunday, we were determined to get us some EGG. Thankfully there was a spare bright & breezy table near the entrance, and we were welcomed by the bouncing and bubbly Camden, and promptly seated and introduced to the ways of EGG - the super soft opening menu, the savoury, the sweet, and asked for what drink we'd like to start. We managed to order a selection of goodies to share - the corn fritters, avo toast with a side of scrambled egg, the Spring shoushouska. Coffee & a perfectly put together cherry lime kaffir soda to wash it down. Oh and did we mention the pimped out peaches & cream french toast for 'dessert'?

    The shoushouska was an improvised version, making it lighter than the traditional version but still comforting - spinach, edamame, onions in a savoury broth with the obligatory EGG.

    The avo toast was perfectly blended guac topped with the tiniest bit of feta (?) and coriander, all put a top a dense piece of toast (brown sour dough type). My boyfriend would've preferred the toast to be a lighter, wholegrain & seed version. I was impartial on this. The scrambled eggs was light & fluffy to accompany it and perfectly paired with a bit of extra salt & pepper.

    Corn fritters and the tomatoe jam are a well thought out match to entice the palate as the fritters would otherwise be a bit bland.

    The pimped out french toast was a great end to brunch, and definitely enough for sharing! Not too sweat, with a little bit of crunch from the granola bits, and without fail, keeping the eggyness alive.

    Artisan and quirky, but with a friendly neighbourhood feel, the cafe is a great place to meet girlfriends for coffee and cake (or banana bread with PB and the other delectable toppings), have a lazy weekend feast on something a little out of the usual breakfast box, or make it a staple weekday stop to get your day started on the right foot. With the open kitchen just as hustly and bustly as the cafe with patrons itself, it's a all rounder winner.

    Looking forward to seeing the evolution of the super soft opening menu and heading back soon to try the missed cinnamon toast, okonomiyoki and banana bread items....
