I’ve been to Two Good Eggs a few times now and it has yet to disappoint me. It’s an intimate place that serves Campos coffee (an increasing favourite of mine) and organic eggs at standard café prices. The interior is decorated in monochromes highlighted with splashes of red, with clean lines giving an air of Swedish design. In keeping with the name of the place, I especially like the cream-hued, egg-shaped light shades.
It is inner city so parking can be a bit restrictive time-wise, however it is usually easy to find parking spaces around the perimeter of the nearby park.
I start off with a nice, strong flat-white which is then followed by Two Good Eggs’ big breakfast with poached eggs. It has sausages, bacon, rather tasty mushrooms, tomato wedges that come herbed and pre-peppered, sourdough toast and, interestingly, a small side of green salad. The organic egg yolks are golden and runny whilst encased in their silken whites. The big breakfast lacks the potato hash and/or baked beans that some others have, but it’s still plenty of food and great quality to boot.
Monsieur Poisson has the potato, spinach and mushroom frittata which is accompanied by a slice of grain bread, side salad and a wedge of the abovementioned tomato. The frittata is herby, firm and moist and contains a middle layer of lightly mashed sweet pumpkin. It’s quite light in comparison with the potato ones that usually involve a fair bit of cream.
I finish my coffee and check for any herb bits stuck in Monsieur Poisson’s teeth. Then it’s off into the autumn sunshine for us – our parking is up.
