We had high expectations of this place! The baked egg dish felt dry and the potatoes were the tastiest things on the plate. Bacon aglio olio was requested to be spicy but came not spicy. Drinks though were pretty good and we were spoilt for choices! 7/10 for this visit but I would come again.

Topped up $2 to change the cheese sausage to brutwurst. Brutwurst was really juicy.

Rosti was good. Crispy edges and a soft centre.

Visited the cafe on a Monday morning ard 11.15am and there was already a short queue forming. Took us ard 15 mins to be seated.

Topped up $1 to switch up my sunny side up egg to scrambled eggs and no regrets !!!!

I’ve always loved scrambled eggs and the rendition here was one that was creamy and silky. Many places tend to over cooked it but the ones served here are what you typically get at HK cafes

Pancakes were okay tbh. But the other sides which were the bacon and cheese sausage were not bad.

Coffee was smooth and packs a punch.

Tucked away in a quiet HDB in Crawford Lane, bordering the vibrant Kampong Glam conservation area, lies Tolido’s Espresso Nook. It’s unassuming exterior doesn't deter a large crowd from lining up every weekend. Here the crowd favourite is their Pandan Pancakes ($14). Think pancakes lightly fragrant with pandan flavour, with gula meleka syrup drizzled over for extra oomph. Burppler Grace Lau thought their Rosti With Bratwurst ($19) was great, saying "The rosti has a nice golden crisp from pan-frying, and the potato is shaved quite coarsely, giving a good bite in every mouthful."

Dine here with my friend on a Sunday afternoon and ordered the rosti. Staff said it would be a 20 minutes wait and I was okay with it.

The rosti was a good size served with a sunny side up egg, sour cream and a choice of cheesy sausage ($17), smoked bratwrust ($19), smoked salmon ($22) or corned beef ($19). So your rosti paid is according to the sides that you choose. There's also an option to add on rosti at +$9. The rosti was good. Shredded pieces of potato, lumped together and fried till the sides were super crispy but yet not burnt. So you have this super crispy outer crust while the middle is soft. The smoked bratwrust was good as well. It had a good bite and was firm. Taste-wise it was smoky and salty which complemented well with the unseasoned rosti.

Overall if you love your potatoes real crispy, this is your go-to place but fyi we waited 1hr 20mins before we got a table.
