Breakfast at Swensen’s also means… you can end the meal with lots of ice cream!
Swensen’s revamped breakfast menu includes a wider variety of popular breakfast classics from pancakes to French toasts to eggs Benedict –all within a comfortable price range from $6.90 to $14.90.
Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict ($12.90)
Each breakfast set comes with complimentary coffee or tea Top up; top up an additional dollar for a glass of fruit juice or an additional $2.50 for a cup of Cappuccino or Café Latte.
Good Morning Sunnies ($11.90)
Two sunny-side up eggs, chicken sausages, hashbrown, sautéed mushrooms and ciabatta rolls
Good Morning Sunnies – unlike other breakfast items that are available till 11am – is available till 3pm. Lazybones can afford to sleep in a little longer!
Baked honey butter cream ciabatta rolls
The ciabatta rolls that come with certain breakfast sets (such as the aforementioned Good Morning Sunnies) is a must have. Freshly baked daily, these balls of bread – crusty on the outside, soft on the inside – are pumped with honey butter. Best part is, they arrive to the table warm.
Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict ($12.90)
Eggs Benedict has to be one of my favourite breakfast/brunch items.
Swensen’s rendition is decent. Perfectly poached eggs with yolk that bleed with the slightest prick sit on two slices of sourdough bread and smoked salmon, drizzled with a pleasant Hollandaise sauce, and served with homemade BBQ beans on the side.
Hearty Steak & Eggs ($14.90)
This dish, along with Good Morning Sunnies, is available till 3pm.
Grilled steak is topped with caramelised onions and a sunny-side up egg. Don’t expect steakhouse quality though.
Swensen’s Sunrice Omelette ($10.90)
Basic omelette mixed in with diced tomatoes and herbs, served with baked honey butter cream Ciabatta rolls, chicken sausages, hashbrowns and sautéed mushrooms.
Half expecting the insides of the omelette to be overcooked judging by its firm façade, I was proved wrong when I cut into it.
Scrambled eggs have met the basic requirement; they are done nicely creamy and not overcooked.
The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich ($9.90)
The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich is composed of Parmesan eggs, chicken ham and tomato slices, sandwiched between two thick slices of toasted Japanese Bread. Made of wheat flour, Japanese bread has a softer and spongier texture; it pulls apart easily with the tiniest effort.
Apart from the bread, I didn’t quite fancy the sandwich fillings –they weren’t outstanding.
The fine-quality Japanese bread is put to better use in the French toast.
Simply French Toast ($7.50)
Three slices of Japanese bread grilled to golden brown perfection, served with homemade honey butter cream.
The homemade honey butter cream goes exceedingly well with the thick slices of French toast.
Simply Pancakes ($6.90)
Three slices of fresh fluffy buttermilk pancakes served with honey butter cream
The pancakes did not disappoint either; they are perfectly golden brown on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside.
All American Buttermilk Pancakes ($9.90)
Pancake lovers who want more variety to the plate can opt for the All American Buttermilk Pancakes that includes chicken sausages, hashbrown and sautéed mushrooms.
Eggy Delight ($6.90)
Sunny-side up eggs served with grilled chicken sausages and potato smiles
Each kiddie set comes with a glass of fruit juice; you can also top up an additional dollar for a cup of Milo.
Prawn Bee Hoon Soup ($11.90)
Going as a family can also mean that there are different cuisine preferences. Those with a penchant for Asian food will not feel left out at this American-style restaurant, because they’re serving up Asian favourites as well.
The deep-fried dumpling is highly addictive.
