I just decided randomly to have brunch here this rainy saturday morning... And was pleasantly surprised! :) The $5.50 continental breakfast is really worth it! :) And the service is good...
I had scrambled eggs with ham and a coffee... It came with 2 slices of butter toast and some salad (salad greens with cherry tomato). The toast was genuinely the nicest I'd ever eaten, I'm not sure why, but it was perfectly toasted, still warm, pleasantly brown, and that and the butter was a heavenly match. See, I don't have very cheem tastes, just do the basics well n you've hit the home run :) The scrambled eggs were yummy too, just the write amount (though I was very full by the end), fluffy and yellow and not too watery or buttery. Don't know why I kept taste a slight garlic taste in the eggs, toast and salad, but it was just a hint and pleasant :) The ham was also good, the ingredients tasted fresh and good-quality throughout, so obviously it wasn't cheap thin generic picnic ham, but it tasted like real meat, just thick enough, and fresh (: Can't get enough of fresh meat... :)
The salad was a decent portion, greens n a cherry tomato drizzled with olive oil and something slightly savoury and sweet, fresh and I gobbled it all up. Coffee was alright, a little too watery and bitter. But the service was good :) It was only one guy serving the entire place. Granted it's a small place (they just renovated too, so it feels nice & new (:), but he has to cook, clear tables, take orders at the cashier... They overworking him ah :P But he did a superb job, my breakfast came quite fast (and well done, as you've seen from the previous paragraph) and he's really efficiently going round cleaning the tables and taking new orders, like a worker ant... So i say, more people should come to Haato (for their also v good ice-cream :)), and make him even busier! :P
All in all, $5.50 for a big plate of eggs, ham/sausage, toast, salad n coffee(/tea/milo/ice tea) is satisfying and super worth it :)
