More Breakfast! Yuyuan Lu Institution Opens Two New Spots

By Jul 8, 2019 Dining

Perennially packed and down-to-earth diner spot AE Kitchen has been doing a brisk trade in pancakes and scrambled eggs every weekend for years. It's the only eatery on that stretch of Yuyuan Lu that has a line waiting for tables every Saturday and Sunday morning, except maybe Fuchun Xiaolongbao. It seems like the brunch money has paid off because they've opened up not one, but two new spots.

It is, far and away, my favorite brunch spot in the city. A hefty breakfast platter for like 72rmb, complete with French toast and ham drowning in maple syrup, the blue-collar diner vibes, the gruff professionalism of the staff, the coffee filtered through a gym sock. Not a free-flow mimosa deal in sight!

Their first new spot is AE Kitchen on Yongkang Lu, where they're sharing a store-front with Tap House, adding waffles, pancakes, eggs, and the rest of the AE Kitchen ouvre to the roster. The other, AE Brew, is a stone's throw from People's Square. It's more of a bottle-o and a coffeeshop, sporting actual latte art! Classing it up, I see. The slogan remains "Not Just Brunch!" Oozing identity crisis, that. A desperate need to be more. A.E. Kitchen, the tortured artist of the all-day breakfast world. Hail the growing AE empire!
