We all have our own particularities when it comes to how eggs should be cooked, and Eggs & Co., a small cafe in St. Germain-des-Pres, has got them all: en cocotte (baked), au plat (sunny side up), brouillés (scrambled), à la coque (soft-boiled), omelette, Benedict, Norwegian, Florentine, in a burger, served with red wine sauce…

The cafe first floor is tiny with only a few bar seats, but the second floor is more spacious with two rooms, one of which has a cozy loft-like atmosphere. VERY popular on weekends, reservation highly recommended.

The decor is consistently egg-y.

All brunch sets (€22~31) come with fresh orange juice, coffee/tea, eggs of choice served with oven-baked potatoes and mixed greens, pancake, and fruit salad. My friend chose eggs Benedict, poached eggs and bacon drizzled with Hollandaise sauce, served over grilled muffins. Not bad, not bad.

I went with eggs baked in a cocotte, which was a bit too bland. Made me miss the baked eggs from Hardware Sociéte in Melbourne, which was better in both presentation and taste.

What I did like about it was that the eggs were still runny, perfect for dipping.

Fruit salad, fine. Pancake, disappointing. Dry, not fluffy, tasted like nothing except a hint of alkaline from baking soda. Blargh.

The latte was ok, but can’t really be compared to the glorious cups at Coutume Cafe.

Not so impressed by the brunch sets at Eggs & Co., but perhaps I’ll come again to try one of the suggestions de la maison from below…
