The servings at Two Good Eggs are massive. The Two Good Eggs Breakfast (essentially their big breakfast), whether you take the vegetarian option or the regular one, will have you full the entire day. People don’t walk out of this Surry Hills cafe, they roll. That’s not to say that the chef is exchanging quality for quantity, quite the contrary. The coffee is consistently good and the kitchen dishes out their own takes on breakfast classics that will have you coming back for more.
If a big breakfast doesn’t take your fancy, the menu has many other options. The baked eggs are spot on with the Spanish version (above), laced with salami, olives and manchego cheese, superior to the pumpkin, pesto and fetta option. The breakfast burgers are all winners, both on taste and value, with the prosciutto, parmesan, poached egg (yes, only one!), spinach and tomato relish burger outshining the others. “Goats on toast” (below) is a real surprise as French goats cheese mingles with honey and walnuts on sour cherry fruit toast that doesn’t seem like it would go together but gels superbly, like Arnie and Danny Devito.
What I like most about Two Good Eggs is the little touches. From the small chocolate on every coffee to a cute little tub of Spanish tomato relish with most egg dishes. Most of all, the basics are there: perfectly poached eggs, an interesting and dynamic specials board and friendly staff who are happy to have your custom. It might not be a cafe where you take your overseas visitors but it’s where you meet your friends every Saturday to analyse the shenanigans from the previous evening. One visit will have you coming back for more.
