Egg Break 1

Squaremeal Review of Egg Break ?

Soho House Group has focused its expert eye on current trends to hatch this laid-back, pop-up café devoted to the egg. Set in a villagey part of Notting Hill, Egg Break has a simple, white interior with comfy seating, a small serving bar and an airy basement. The kitchen can rustle up elegant riffs on greasy spoon fry-ups, along with such classics as eggs Florentine and Benedict, but there’s plenty else besides – a brunch starter of spring vegetable soup given a novel kick by pickled egg, for instance. But the organic Clarence Court eggs really shine in a dish of fried hispi cabbage (nicely charred), anchovy (we would have liked more), aïoli and Parmesan; the rich, saffron-coloured yokes dribbled seductively into the ingredients. Equally pleasing was ‘broken eggs’, chorizo, scamorza cheese and spring onions: a tangy, creamy muddle. Moreish side dishes of fat portobello mushrooms, crispy jalapeño fries and smoked bacon could form a meal if eggs don’t appeal. For afters, a slice of lemon bar with brown butter crust produced salvos of citrusy sweetness, and drinks include cold-pressed juices, shakes and smoothies, as well as alcoholic beverages. Service is sweet too, with charming staff clucking over diners.

    Food Expectations :: Food Expectations: Egg Break Review

    I had been drooling over pictures of some eggy dishes from Egg Break, a new restaurant occupying a space that belonged previously to Thai Break in Kensington/Notting Hill Gate. (The new owners just had to cross out Thai and replace by Egg which was a witty touch.)

    Samphire and Salsify | just another food blog :: Egg Break, Notting Hill | Samphire and Salsify

    Egg Break opened under the radar; there was little to no song and dance about Soho House’s latest restaurant tucked down a sleepy side street in Notting Hill. As the name suggests, the menu specialises in all things eggy and as it’s only open for breakfast and lunch, it’s a convenient brunch spot.
    We sat on the ground floor which had a relaxed cafe vibe. The staff, in particular our waiter, were hilariously funny – I’ve never laughed so much in a restaurant. The whole experience was undoubtedly an enjoyable one – it was just the food that didn’t quite do it for me.

    The Lifestyle Diaries :: The Lifestyle Diaries: Egg Break, Notting Hill

    Is there anything better than a good all day brunch joint? Especially when it looks very simple from the outside and turns out to be a total gem inside? Didn't think so - and Egg Break is the true definition of this.

    You go in, and it's decorated in the most simple yet beautiful way - but more on that later. I was meeting the lovely Pooja from Soho House, the brand behind Egg Break, to hear more about them an their restaurants...

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London: Hatching Plans at Egg Break

    The humble egg has become a rather fashionable food in London. Low in calories, high in protein, rich in iron and containing all nine amino acids, it’s no surprise that the delicate oval now has several restaurants dedicated to cooking it in all manner of ways. Personally I love a good egg and I was excited (that’s right not egg-cited, this will not be a post full of egg puns!) to try Egg Break, the brand new cafe celebrating this simple ingredient.

    Gingle lists everything :: Gingle lists everything Egg Break 1st May

    My insta feed is always full of eggy goodness pictures from newly opened Eggbreak in Notting Hill. So it was the logical choice for a brunch date a few weeks ago.
    Of course, I had to choose an egg dish. I had the corn cakes with poached eggs and sriracha hollandaise. I have to say, the cooking was uneven. One of my eggs had the most watery yolk when I pierced it. It gushed everywhere in a way that was almost offputting enough for me to send it back. The other egg, however, was overcooked and didn’t ooze anywhere at all.

    I arrived at Egg Break around 10:30am and got a seat immediately but realised sitting by the door was too cold, and requested to move by the windows instead. They did take a while to clear the table before I moved. It’s a cosy little place with oak wooden tables and cushions to keep you comfy.

    If you visit their site, various photos are on display on the screen and it just has links to the menu and social networks. As the name suggests this place does eggs, however, you like it. Breakfast is served from 8-12pm, avocado lovers they do a great avo smash here.

    I ordered smashed avocado on sourdough...
