Wallet-Friendly Thrills



Evolving from a humble food truck in Los Angeles, Eggslut today is a household name. Though you would've already guessed this, egg is the name of the game here — from scrambled, hard-boiled, sunny side up, to poached. 

For an all-encompassing breakfast treat, the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Sandwich ($12) checks all the boxes with crispy applewood smoked bacon, a runny egg, chipotle ketchup and oozy cheddar sandwiched between buttery brioche.

Crossroads Cafe


With its charming alfresco dining space in the heart of Orchard Road, Crossroads Cafe is the perfect place for a chill-out brunch date with friends. Between coffee and chats, sink your teeth into the succulent Lobster Brioche Roll ($38++), brimming with chunks of Boston lobster, bacon, and avocado sandwiched in a buttery brioche bun.

Eat fresh with healthful salads like the nutrient-packed Grilled Asparagus & Pumpkin Salad ($24++) with zucchini and flax seeds. Those wanting something heartier, look no further than the Crossroads Grilled Chicken ($30++) served on a bed of pearl barley risotto.

The 1910 Coffee ($9 per pot) is for those with a fruity flavour profile bearing the summery sweetness of strawberries in fresh cream. Whilst the Copacabana Coffee ($14.50 per pot), is a darker, earthier blend with nutty undertones. Whatever you choose, ensure to pair it with the remarkably buttery and flaky croissants.

Not your usual French toast, the Cereals Crusted French Toast ($22++) gives you an extra crunch and fruitiness from bourbon peach. Savour aromatic brews from award-winning roasters like ONA coffee and Seven Seeds, then shop around to bring a piece of Australia home.
