All-day café serving more than just eggs.
Eggbreak is a long way from being just another one-dish novelty restaurant on the tourist bucket list. Though the café is still suitably quirky with its mismatched crockery and rustic interiors, it has the gravitas of a destination venue, not least in part to great service and a broad dinner menu.
There’s a solid trio of burgers to pick from – including a cracking fried chicken with hot sauce and a dreamy veggie bun that comes with crispy Brie and a fat portobello mushroom. And while the crispy chicken wings sound like a simple starter, they’re doused in a kicking ginger and soy sauce, transforming them into a wonderfully messy, indulgent affair. Especially when you throw in a side of superb fries.
Yet, a bland Mexican omelette is the only real irony of the meal. For all of its ingredients – avocado, salsa, spring onion, chilli, and queso fresco – it’s really not worth writing home about. But at least the desserts come up with the goods. The moreish salted milk chocolate pot with miso crumble perfectly sums up this west London haunt: it’s lovely, sweet and for the most part, much better than you might have imagined.

Worst breakfast. We ordered 2 x flat whites and they came cold and asked for a hot coffee and forgot to bring it again. You could taste the coffee beans were not fresh. Turkish eggs looked so good on Instagram as did the healthy breakfast - halloumi, avo, poached eggs, kale and tomatoes. Halloumi was tough, eggs cold and the rest was tasteless. Food was bitterly disappointing and staff completely inattentive. Great Instagram but can’t see what the hype is about, not worth the visit at all.
For somewhere with "egg" in their name they do shockingly bad eggs. My two poached eggs were practically hard boiled.
Have had their coffee twice. The first time I think the operator genuinely forgot to use and coffee at all as it tasted like detergent and frothy milk. Given this was probably a mistake I went back for another flat white a few weeks later. It was too big, too weak and the milk was burnt. A pity as they use good beans. I won't be going back.
