It has been quite sometime since I last post about breakfast brunch. It’s my second visit to Hatched but to their outlet at Holland Village. The café is conveniently accessible via walking distance from Holland Village MRT station. Hatched is an egg-inspired, all day breakfast place to chill out. The eggs here are served in many different forms such as boiled, poached, baked, scrambled and more.
My sisters and I decided to have our brunch here on of the weekend. The exterior of the restaurant with its floor to the ceiling length glass window and yellow criss-cross bars snaking across the surface gives a creative feeling of the place set up. It has different exterior and interior designs from the one at Evans Lodge.
Sir Benedict S$13.00 (1 egg) or S$19.00 (2eggs) served classic with ham, poached egg and the hollandaise sauce on top of a breakfast muffin. Poached egg was well done as the yolk was done just right as it just flow out smoothly right upon cutting it.The combination of sour and slightly creamy sauce was perfect to enhance the taste of the egg and ham. It comes with 1 or 2 option so sister ordered 1 only and it is quite filling.
Salted Egg Ranch on Potato Spuds S$12.00 beautifully served in a plate.Potato spuds dressed with an Asian twist of salted egg dressing..
Croque Madame S$16.00 served in grilled ham and cheese sandwich with a fried egg on top served with steak fries. Fried egg was nicely done with the yellowish yolk lying on top the sandwich makes the whole dish looks appetizing. Not to mentioned that the steak fries was thick and filling too.
Serving time was within 20 minutes and service staffs are quite attentive to customers. We do get their attention when we need to place order and also refill water. Overall dinning experience is pleasant with the food quality, service and of course companion.
Total Bill was S$63.60 which inclusive of 10% service charge and 7% GST. We didn’t order any drinks as it comes with free flow of plain water. If you are craving for breakfast dinner, you might want to drop by for a filling craving.

Papillote $16 The partner and I find nothing special about this dish. It was a good combination though. The scrambled eggs tasted rather bland so it went well with the slight saltiness of the smoked salmon.
Sir Benedict $13 Poached egg with bacon and ham on an english muffin Mushroom sauce was drizzled over the mashed potato. It would have been better if the sauce was served hot as it seemed like it was left out in the open for some time. The poached egg met the mark. The runny egg yolk oozed out when the poached egg was cut open.
Blueberry Martini Trifle $8 Dessert was so-so only. It was a tad too sweet for my liking and I could not taste any hint of Martini. She finds it pretty good though. Overall, it was quite a disappointment as I was expecting more after hearing how popular it is. Hatched is overrated in my opinion. There are definitely better brunch and all-day breakfast places around!
Hatched (as it is so aptly named) is a western dining concept that specialises in breakfast and brunch that revolves around the main ingredient, eggs. If you are an egg lover, this is the place for you. They have an extensive range of food items with different methods of egg preparation that you can choose from. From poached egg to eggs benedict to scrambled eggs, you would find yourself spoilt for choice when you realise that something as simple and as common as an egg can have so many exquisite ways of preparation. So stop by here for breakfast or brunch if you can; you would probably not regret doing so!
If you're thinking it's just EGGS, then it is definitely overpriced. But credit the creativity and ambience. I think it is worth the money. Second visit when took this pic. More to come (:
servings were really small and overpriced, ordered the salmon with egg bens for $19!! Smoked salmon was alright, muffins were good but the eggs were mediocre. Though they were poached nicely it didn't taste good...even had a slight bitter taste to it. For $19 I could've gone somewhere else so probably never going back!
