Soft folds of voluminous scrambled egg with just a touch of seasoning are served with earthy walnut pesto and mushrooms. Just revisiting this image alone is enough to make me want to head down to @microbakerykitchen tomorrow morning for breakfast.

Yet another fine addition to the burgeoning cafe scene in East Coast, @thebrewingground is situated in the far corner of The Yards, a sprawling compound in a quiet residential street housing a pottery workshop, gym and dance studios amongst other things. It's a little out of the way but well worth the trip.

Chilled out vibes in both the bright and airy interior and the outdoors seating area, though you'd probably want to sit inside in air-conditioned comfort because it can get pretty hot during the day.

What's also HOT af is their signature scrambled eggs, done in the viral tornado omelette style and swirled to a dreamy creaminess. Heft comes in the form of a mountain of sauteed crab meat and ikura, which add a smoky sweetness and saltiness respectively to what could have been a texturally pleasing but plain affair.

Elevated McMuffin wannabes are increasingly making their appearances at cafes. This has to be the best version so far.

A thicc, juicy pork sausage patty, literally buried under silky scrambled eggs and jammy caramelised onions and cheddar, embraced by the warm hug of toasty brioche buns slathered in a creamy ketchup-mayo concoction, was heaven to the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

My go-to coffee varietal for iced coffee here is the Pencil Blend – rich and nutty, it works well with the cold, creamy milk. At double ristretto strength, this is a refreshing perk-me-up to energize you in the morning.

Like so many bright green domino tiles, double fans of avocado slices were spread out on a large slice of rustic sourdough in such a visually pleasing arrangement I was loathe to eat them. Fresh, ripe and creamy, the avocado worked well with the chewy bread and salty feta on the side, and the charred garlic confit tomatoes were practically bursting with umami. If you want a healthy yet flavoursome breakfast, this would be my top choice at Brawn & Brains.

I came with no expectations after my less than stellar experience last time round, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this classically executed omelette. The fluffy exterior yielded to an ever so slightly runny core specked with squares of ham within. On the side were no-frills baked beans, an ultra-crispy hashbrown, and thick, fluffy squares of brioche. The portions here are very generous and I was struggling to finish my omelette, but the scenic view of Bedok Reservoir and idyllic peacefulness of my surroundings meant I could take my time on a lazy Sunday morning.

They do a mean scrambled egg here, rippled through with meandering swirls, well-seasoned, and most importantly light and creamy in texture. The sourdough bread is of good quality, and the charred mushroom sauced with basil walnut pesto had bags of flavour.

Barely a few months old and new Joo Chiat bakery Petit Pain is already packed to the rafters on weekend mornings. Pro-tip – visit during lunch hour when the crowd has dissipated and also when they start making these delightfully cheesy focaccias chockful of caramelised onion and shitake mushroom slices.

You might balk at the price tag(I certainly did), but if you fancy your coffeeshop breakfast in a nice café environment along with great coffee, then look no further than Homeground’s excellent rendition of kaya toast and eggs.

The kaya is lush and creamy, redolent with pandan, and excellent spread on the crunchy, airy toast, that's best eaten dunked into the bowl of perfectly sous vide eggs for that winning combination of sweet, salty and savoury.

Brawn & Brains’ signature fluffy scrambled eggs, crispy bacon rashers and red cheddar sandwiched between handmade brioche buns is the power breakfast of champions, although I found myself wishing for the bread to be less dense and the eggs to be more well-seasoned.

Prices are steep for what you can essentially cook at home to the same standard, but it's worth the (very) occasional treat of a mound of fluffy, creamy scrambled eggs dusted with finely grated Parmesan. The side salad of baby spinach with a subtle dressing is surprisingly good too. No regrets adding on the sides of meaty pork bacon rashers($4.8) and the most beautifully fanned out slices of avocado($4.5) I've seen this side of Guillemard either. They also happen to make the best coffee(imo) in the neighbourhood.

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.
