I've had this twice and it was absolutely amazing both times. The scrambled eggs were thick and creamy, the bread was chunky and soft yet chewy, the shrimps were well-seasoned, and the corn and cherry tomatoes were nicely grilled. The portion was huge and filling. The dish wasn't oily either. This was from the Circuit Breaker menu, and I hope it stays on the regular menu as well.

Cheesy omelette with sliced mushrooms. Better than expected. There was a pool of oil that I drained out before eating. The portion was alright for me but may be small for some.

Creamy peppered scrambled eggs, crusty crunchy thick buttered toast, and nicely cooked green spinach. They thoughtfully packaged each item separately on delivery so that the toast didn't turn soggy and the items didn't cross contaminate each other's flavours.

I've wanted to try this for a long time but have always been put off by the purported queue and the relative inaccessibility for me. So I'm thankful to the circuit breaker that I can now have this delivered. Even taken away, it is absolutely amazing. The mushrooms have a beautiful bite, and are creamy and cheesy without being jelat. Eggs are firm and moist. And unlike many sourdough breads out there, this sourdough is proper sourdough, with the classic texture and taste of sourdough. Highly, highly recommended, even at this price point.

Breakfast lasts till 3pm. For $10, you get a choice of bread (pancakes, brioche or scones) and a choice of eggs, with a variety of optional add-ons. I had brioche, which was wonderfully fragrant, and nicely toasted with a thin crispy crust that stayed crispy throughout the meal, and a soft interior. Scrambled eggs were soft, moist and perfectly done. Even the tomato was sweeter than expected. It's a big portion, much bigger than I expected for the price. The staff were lovely too and took the initiative to keep refilling my water.

I usually don't like eating too much cheese as it gets overwhelming, but the ricotta here is light yet creamy and so good. Micro bakery is still my favourite place for sourdough toast. Theirs has a crusty crust and a soft chewy middle.

Aside from the main menu items, you can also choose your own selection of breakfast items to create your own plate. I had scrambled eggs ($4), sourdough toast ($2), mixed greens ($2) and a roasted tomato ($3). All tasted good.

I like how the scrambled eggs looked like they had more whites than yolks. Scrambled eggs were thick and creamy, the with bread with with toasted, and there was a little spice from black pepper.

Creamy, thick, soft, golden scrambled eggs with bits of salty furikake on a hunk of chewy toasted sourdough, topped with crunchy snap peas and asparagus. It may be a little overpriced but I keep coming back for this.

The toast was supposed to be sourdough but it was crusty rather than chewy, though it was saved by the coffee creme fraiche smeared lightly over it. Otherwise, the smoked salmon, poached egg and greens were all tasty. Overall a satisfying but overpriced dish.

This is a sesame seed bagel lathered in dill cream cheese and topped with smoked salmon, raw onions and spinach, with a side salad dressed in sesame dressing. The bagel was tough and stale, and there was too much cream cheese, but the other ingredients were good in quantity and quality.

It's a sign of the popularity of this cafe (and perhaps of the propensity of its customers to sit and chat long after their food is finished) that, despite its inflated prices, at 2.40pm on a Thursday, all the seats were filled and there was a short queue outside the door. The food and coffee were excellent. The scrambled egg whites were firm, rich, and generously portioned. The greens comprised kale cooked till tender and edamame on a bed of guacamole, topped with shredded parmesan.
