Baked, boiled, fried, poached & scrambled, HATCHED has them all and more... Discover and enjoy the amazing versatility of eggs at HATCHED, where you can have breakfast all day!
Hatched is an inconspicuous restaurant situated away from any mainstream competition in the food industry. Hatched contains surprises inside with their beautiful interior. Everything from their space to their menu is thoughtfully designed. Also, and more importantly, they serve up all kinds of egg dishes that would make egg fanatics dizzy in euphoric hysteria.
Prices are rather steep considering that the portion of the food is rather small or meagre for a grown man but it also depends on what you order. I ordered some form of steamed egg (sorry, I really can't remember what I ordered and I'm not good with eggs) and it was served in a tiny soup bowl... somewhat like Japanese Chawanmushi but the taste is rather unexpected and managed to win me over despite being disappointed at the portion.
Hatched is rather inaccessible if you're not driving. But I guess it is also a plus point in their favour, enabling it to retain its cosy and relaxing ambience, and continues to be a good hideout from the usual crowd. Hatched also manages to capture a niched crowd - everyone there looks like an artist or important person of some sort. Literally everyone is well-dressed.

I absolutely adore the menu - it's so cute and cheery! The interior decor of the place was welcoming and cosy too.
I excitedly ordered a set of eggs benedicts with glee, having heard much about this place. However, when the food arrived, my heart sank as I looked sadly at the measly portions. Undaunted, I put my taste buds to the test.
The yellow, seemingly decadent Hollandaise sauce beckoned me to try it, which I did. I instantly regretted as thoughts clouded my mind - how could anyone LIKE this sauce? It was WAY too sour for my liking. The eggs were fine, but did not justify the price. The muffins were rather dry as well.
Surprisingly, I would return again. Eggs are my best friend and packaging definitely sells. Their menu - I'm sold! I'm guessing many people fell victim to the cutesy menu. Haha.
A generally great restaurant with quality food
This has to be one of my favourite restaurants, with excellent food, service and ambience, what more can one ask for? Located right along Holland village, Hatched is an easily accessible restaurant. The restaurant is rather quaint with its wooden furnishing and large chalkboard sketches on the walls. The restaurant is well known for its numerous dishes which revolve around the key ingredient, egg. Basically every dish is the restaurant’s take on a classic egg dish.
Despite all the great dishes, the El Choziro has to be the one that take the award for the best dish. Large spicy german sausages are hacked up into little bits that are tossed into a mixture of a spicy sauce and scrambled egg, served with a piece of bread. The hints of herbs in the dish pull everything together making it a dish to die for. The sausage itself is a juicy and tender one, and is quick to steal the heart of any meat lover.
The eggs benedict’s is another favourite of mine, served with smoked salmon and bread topped with a delicious hollandaise sauce. it is one of those things that i’d swear i can sense melting in my mouth. the subtle saltiness in the salmon compliments the runny yolk so well, and the bread add the drying element to the entire dish that just makes it so perfect.
The service there is rather decent too. The staff is polite and considerate and the food takes a short amount of time to be served. The prices can be a little steep for someone on a budget, but it’s a good restaurant to visit on an occasion where you’d like to treat yourself. As a whole, it’s an excellent cafe which I can see myself visiting quite often.
One of the best poached egg places I know of
Filmed a food review on this place previously and I was pretty impressed! Their hospitality was amazing(?); their manager served us personally and ensured all our needs were meticulously met. This review might be a little biased on hospitality so let’s make the quality of food the discerning factor.
I had their Burly Benedict while my friend got herself a Papillote consisting of toast, scrambled eggs, smoked salmon drizzled with Chive cream accompanied with sautéed potatoes and we both loved them to bits!
My poached egg was exactly how I liked it: Warm, runny and large! One slice into the egg had me scrambling to not lose even a drip of it. A battle all poached egg lovers would know *wipes forehead* HAHAHA. The smoked salmon my friend had was really good too! Though it was a tad saltier than what I could manage.
The ambience of the café was cozy, with some plumped-up cushions, bookshelves and of course their trademark chalk sketches! One thing however, is that breakfast dishes never fail to make me feel that it’s something I could’ve done in the comfort of my own home, at a much cheaper price.
I recently visited Hatched with a friend to have Brunch around noon. The place was quite empty at the time. As I was with a lady friend, the waitress substituted our egg salt and pepper shakers with ones shaped like birds, which I later realised that it symbolised 'lovebirds'. Haha!
The meal itself was good. I had Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs. The Salmon was a bit salty, but the scrambled eggs were nicely done. The dish came with a side of roasted potatoes, however, which were hard and not very nice. My friend had a Sir Benedict, which was one poached egg on top of an English Muffin and topped with Hollandaise sauce.
All in all, the place is a good place to have brunch and chit-chat, however the food could be better for the prices.
An eggy place!
I love brunch and so Hatched was defitnely one of my visit list according to good reviews online. The place is always packed on a weekend so reservations are defintely required.
However i feel that Hatched does not really satisfy my brunch cravings. It is a perfect place for those who love eggs as 3/4 of their food menu involved eggs.
I ordered their signatures eggs benedict and was slightly disappointed as the yolk did not ooze out when my fork poked on it. I like egg benedicts in which the yolk will run when poked, but sadly this didnt. The place was also slightly squeezy as tables were long and customers sat close to each other, with little privacy for quiet talk.
The meal was also slightly pricey. We paid close to SGD40 for 2 sets. It is not likely i will come again in the near future.
A good brunch for beginners
I was there with my girlfriends because Skyve was fully booked that morning on a weekend.
It was my first 'brunch' experience then.
We had to queue for another 20mins or so, the server passed us a 'catalog of eggs' to decide on our food in the meanwhile.
Finally after the wait we were seated in the nicely and funky decorated cafe. Even the pepper bottle is cute! When my order of Smoked Royale arrive i quickly took a picture of it since it was so beautifully done. Beneath the Poached eggs was huge pieces of smoked salmon. Ah... i love how it taste. From then on i'm addicted to Eggs Royale and Eggs Benedict.
I've been to brunch places that serves better Eggs Royale and Eggs Bendict after that though.
Overall, it was a good experience to brunch at Hatched. A good brunch for beginners.
Strictly for egg lovers.
Baked, fried, scrambled, poached. Hatched has them all. Eggs in any way you can think of.
Even in french toast! They serve a mean french toast, sandwiched with bananas paired with maple syrup, i was truly satisfied. It really served my sweet tooth well.
Then there is their egg benedict, i tried my very first egg ben's there, so I cannot judge the quality. However, it was flowy and didn't have a vinegary smell to it. That should be a good indication of their eggs ben. Standards may differ though, because my friend who went there another time complained for receiving an overcooked poached egg. What a dismay and letdown! I hope it was just one of their 'off-days'.
The prices are generally not too high, however their baked eggs could have fared better for the price. Too small a portion and nothing special, could be recreated at home. Overall the ambience is good, with cute interior furnishings and food ware with acceptable food.
Overrated and pricey
My friends and I had planned a surprise birthday party here for our friend because she wanted to try Hatched. I like the place and the set-up of the cafe. It was cozy and nice on the second floor where we had our food. The service staff were very helpful in executing the birthday surprise for us as well.
Food wise, I thought it was just so-so. I had an Eggs Benedict which were good but it was alright and nothing fantastic in my opinion. Price range was a little pricey for me as well. It's a good place for all-day breakfast but it wouldn't be a place that I would keep going back to because I don't think the price is worth it.
At the end of the day, the birthday event was successful and my friends and I had a great time together there.
Runny is good
Though a little expensive, the food is worth the cost. But only try this out if you are in love with eggs. If you are not such big fans of eggs, there are not many other things on the menu that sound tempting.
Had the 'Cowboy' for brunch one day in Hatched and the egg was exremely well done and the portions are, in my opinion, very filling.
This restaurant seems more like concept dining because of all the design-ish stuff from their menu design and restaurant decoration. We could probably find other restaurants with equally delicious egg dishes but at a cheaper price.
It's a quaint homely spot for breakfast or brunch, just a little out of the way if you're taking public transport. When it gets crowded you'll have to sit outside of the eatery, near the entrance which does not have a nice ambience.
You can probably guess what Hatched sells from their name - eggs. Eggs served up in all different forms! The menu is extensive and has cute names. The main dishes cost around $20-$30. I would say the food is good but not worth the price. After all, its just eggs and maybe toast/sausages. You can find better brunch/breakfast food elsewhere for a similar or lower price - like Spruce.
The service is above average, with perky service staff who are attentive. Our bill just took very long to arrive.
