Amazing place for brunch!
Maison Ikkoku is a cafe that serves all-day breakfast during weekends. I've always been up for a good, generous portion of Western breakfast, so I was pretty excited when my aunt introduced my family and I to this cafe recently.
Although Maison Ikkoku may not offer the most varied menu, they make up for their lack of variety with sheer quality. Their Eggs Benedict was absolutely delicious - the poached eggs were warm and delightful, and went extremely well with the sauce that was generously lathered atop the two muffins. For salmon lovers, Maison Ikkoku also offers a dish similar to Eggs Benedict, except with salmon laid on top of the muffin instead of bacon, known as Salmon Florentine. I also stole a few bites from my mothers French Toast with Sea Salt Caramel, and that dish was delicious as well, and the cafe certainly didn't scrimp on the syrup, so there was plenty of sweetness to go with the toasted bread.
However, I did find the prices at Maison Ikkoku a little expensive, as a plate of Eggs Benedict can easily set customers back $18, which definitely isn't ideal for a student like myself. The same goes for their boutique, in which the male apparel there costs at least $50.
I adore the concept at Maison Ikkoku, as it's not everyday that you see a cafe with a boutique just upstairs. The interior of Maison Ikkoku gives off an extremely rustic and vintage vibe, with indie music playing from the loudspeakers, and would probably make a very good haunt for hipsters.
Come during weekends for their hot menu!
Wanting to try their all day breakfast menu, i made sure to come on a weekend. Even though the menu is not very big, the food the sell is indeed up to standard. When we went in, they have a cake display selling a few different types of cakes, scones and their ever popular MI Musubi which is essentially like an onigiri with luncheon meat on top.
When ordered, they would heat it up and serve it to us. We tried their house coffee for a change and it was indeed thick and aromatic, a delight for the senses! We also tried their french toast which was slathered in a rich and thick sauce which went well with the thick slabs of egg coated bread with mixed berries.
After your meal, head upstairs to their clothes retail shop for some shopping!
