Pendulous poached egg on a avocado-smothered sliced of toast is my power breakfast of choice. The only thing I can fault is the price, which given the tiny portion, should be at least a few dollars cheaper. Then again, it's a P.S. Cafe in the middle of the city.

Taste: 3/5


I could eat eggs anytime of the day, but breakfast is when I savour them most. La Brasserie's Eggs Benedict sees two plump poached eggs coated in hollandaise atop toasty English muffins draped with your choice of ham or smoked salmon. Faultless and so satisfying.

Taste: 3.5/5

Breakfast at Fullerton Bay Hotel is a luxurious experience amidst plush, sun-lit surroundings and an indulgent spread of local, Western, and even gluten-free options. Take your pick from the buffet, or order extravagant a la carte dishes such as the Egg Surprise Special. Braised Wagyu beef cheeks for breakfast anyone? Melt-in-your-mouth hunks of fall-apart meat surround a wobbly sous vide egg begging to be burst in a bath of truffle infused meat jus. This is almost too rich for my first meal of the day, but I'll throw caution to the wind for anything that delectable.

Taste: 3.5/5


Given a choice, I always go for the breakfast option. Two Men Bagel’s Egg Boca might not be the most impressive looking thing on the menu, but it is comfort food at it’s best – egg salad, bacon jam, scallions, mayo and fresh greens make for a soul soothing moreish mouthful.

Taste: 3.5/5


At twice the quality and cheaper than most other "big breakfast" plates at cafes of similar ilk, the GastrosmSmiths Breakfast Plate comes laden with a swathe of silken scrambled eggs of perfect consistency, bacon, wok-sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomato, a high-quality Nürnberger sausage, toast and blackcurrant maple compote. What a mouthful, literally and figuratively. Available on their weekend brunch menu from 11:30am - 3:30pm.

Taste: 3.5/5


I don’t order this out often because I plan to eventually buy a house, but this was the waiter’s recommendation and I like to live dangerously sometimes. The avocado was immaculately sliced and nicely flavoured with the bright flavours of lime and chilli flakes. As for the eggs, they were soft, wobbly and custardy in the centre. Crumbled feta and sweet tomatoes on the vine rounded out the dish. Beautiful, simple breakfast food that went well with my pint of White Rabbit Ale.

Taste: 3.5/5


Really smooth and strong coffee with a luxuriously frothy finish. It’s got a not inconsiderable sugar hit too which makes it tastes vaguely like kopi o in a good way. I’d come back just for this.


Thanks to @burpple I got to know about this hot new bakery at Serene Centre. I initially ordered the vegemite and cheddar toast, but upon seeing this beauty being prepared behind the counter I quickly switched my order and boy I am I glad I did.

Fresh out of the oven, the sourdough was pleasingly crusty outside, yielding to a soft, stretchy center within. The savoury sage cream cheese slathered on the toast was a complementary contrast to the sweetness of the lush berry compote.

Unsurprisingly, they were all sold out when we wanted to buy a loaf to take home.


A serviceable greasy fry up of sausage, bacon, shaved beef and scrambled eggs. For when you are hungover or when you need to line your stomach in preparation of some cheeky weekday lunch drinking.

Taste: 3/5


Tuckshop's roti wrap puts a spin on the typical Ozzie breakfast roll with bacon, egg, onion, tomato, mayo and sweet chilli sauce. Fairly ordinary


Woefully underwhelming. Other than the OK scrambled eggs and canned beans, everything else on the plate left little to be desired; insipid turkey bacon, spongy and tiny chicken chipolatas, a greasy hashbrown, truffled diced mushrooms that tasted extremely strange and what looks to be floppy untoasted gardenia wholemeal bread. It's surprising since I really like the other food and coffee here. Much sadz 😞


This luxe omelette is served with lobster and prawn chunks in a delicate lobster bisque, then topped with briny avruga pearls (made from herring roe). A rich dish in both senses of the word and a hedonist's delight.
