The term “eggporn” came into being for a reason – true enough, we couldn’t get through this round-up without drooling over these breakfasts of champions.
The cafe’s star Organic Eggs Benedict (pictured): 2 poached eggs nestled on tender braised ox cheeks and sourdough toast, with creamy Hollandaise sauce with just the right about of zing. It’s immensely satisfying without being cloying, and if you’re still worried about it being a little too rich for breakfast, remember the adage: have breakfast like a king.

We used to think we’ve mastered the perfect scrambled eggs in the kitchen, but we thought wrong. Try Atlas Coffeehouse’s (pictured) – soft yet rich, fluffy yet buttery, and frothed to a perfect sunny yellow. Paired with creamy mushrooms, it’s the breakfast of dreams.

This cafe is full of surprises: the first being its obscure location in a medical centre. The second is its simple menu of not-so-simple breakfasts. Case in point: The crispy, flavour-packed crab cakes (pictured), best enjoyed thoroughly smeared with the goodness of an oozing poached egg.

Try the Soft-Topped Toastie (pictured) with mixed mushrooms, sous vide egg, mozzarella cheese and baby chard atop sourdough, with butternut puree as the perfect finishing touch. Make it a meal with a nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee.

From a dressed-up croque madame topped with a perfect sunny side up to devilishly delicious french toast with rhubarb berry marmalade, it’s hard to pick a favourite at this dainty garden-themed cafe – the kind of cafe you’d want to spend a lazy morning at.

The European is eggs benedict splendidly done, but for something unconventional, go for the Tunisian (pictured), a sizzling pan of spicy shakshouka with chorizo sausage and studded with 2 fried eggs. The best part? Breakfast is all-day! We know what we’re having for dinner: breakfast.

The Big Ben is all you need: scrambled eggs, maple glazed bacon, a chicken sausage, grilled tomatoes and mini hashbrowns. But is it all you want? Save some space for the Berry Ricotta Hotcake to end off your meal on a sweet(er) note.

The Homemade Sausages with Rosti and Scrambled Eggs (pictured) at Riders Cafe is a departure away from the typical breakfast dishes. The usuals come with a twist, too – the Pacific Benedict has salmon flakes crowning poached eggs that sit atop crab cakes.

There’s something about their waffles, tinged with the subtlest cotton candy sweetness, that makes it pair perfectly with the rest of the savoury components of your big breakfast. Or, be pleasantly surprised by the Asian-inspired Kimchi flatbread – kimchi, grilled bacon, pork bratwurst, and a sunny side up atop fragrantly toasted flatbread.

Their Eggs Benedict is simple yet satisfying; add their tranquil green compounds into the equation and you get a super satisfying breakfast. It’s kid-friendly too – kids eat free with every main ordered. That is, if you can get them to get off the bouncy castle on the lawn.
