The concept of all-day breakfast restaurants isn’t new to our country. Pancake House has been with us for decades. There’s also Heaven & Eggs, now H&E, still exists. The US franchise iHop is finally in the Philippines but I don’t have the patience to go there yet because of the long line (besides, I’ve tried it in the US). Not to mention the Filipino breakfast foods like Tapa King, Rufos, and the likes. Early Bird Breakfast Club recently joined the breakfast restaurants club and we were eager to try it because of the good reviews. Unfortunately, we somehow felt duped after our experience there.
Everything in Early Bird Breakfast Club is aesthetically pleasing – the logo, the graphic prints, the pastel color combinations, the table top decor, and the food presentation. All were clearly well thought out. Unfortunately the food falls short for us.
I ordered the Eggs Benedict (P420) which was bigger than most of the eggs benedict I’ve had before but not by much. It’s good for 1 person. I found the hollandaise sauce too tart so I’m guessing there was too much lemon juice to it. For P420, I expected the eggs benedict to be spectacular.
My sister and I decided to get the French Toast Fondue (P210) for dessert. According to the menu, it comes with melted chocolate, maple syrup and cinnamon. It certainly looked pretty when it was served to us but much to our chagrin, there were only a few french toast sticks, we think they only used 2 breads worth. Also, the french toast was overcooked and had a burnt taste. We had to request for a new batch and reminded the staff not to over-toast the bread. The fondue came in little egg shells. They look quaint but it’s a challenge for those with big fingers like me. I accidentally hit the shell of the maple syrup and ended up eating egg shell.
I don’t know if we’ll come back to Early Bird Breakfast Club. I honestly don’t think the food is worth the money but don’t just take my word for it. If you have extra money and want to try this all-day breakfast place, do so and I hope you tell me what you think of it.
