Duck Egg Café

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This Thai-run café is a greasy spoon that gives some of the adjacent Brixton Market eateries a run for their money. As the name suggests, duck eggs are the USP on the menu, served poached or any way you like; hen eggs are the alternative. Our eggs forestiere was a play on eggs benedict, the eggs served over cultivated mushrooms over the muffins; these would have been better if the egg whites had been cooked through properly and the tomato more flavoursome, but the hash brown was crisp and decent. Coffee is from Illy, and the orange juice is from Innocent bottles. A little pricey for a caff in Brixton, perhaps, but this doesn’t deter queues from forming outside at peak brunch times.
