Out of the four breakfast permutations, we loved the Egg Beef Patty ($13++) the most. With a distinct crust on the surface, the interior had a lovely hints of spices that cut though the richness of the egg. To add to the allure, this had an extra golden layer of beautifully torched hollandaise sauce.
The Egg Florentine ($12.50++) came with folded browned ham with nicely charred edges, distinguishing itself from the light pinkish version. The unseasoned poached eggs married nicely with the savoury ham and wilted spinach, though the latter was slightly over-salted. The egg yolk was flowing very quickly but we mopped it clean with the pillowy soft toast (not dry English muffins) within seconds.
I love smoked salmon but I must admit that the tastebuds lost its direction between the Egg Royale ($13.50++) and Egg Salmon & Asparagus ($14.00++). Both were similar except for the asparagus in the latter that offered an extra crunch. Some dashes of pepper that I've added in later, perked up my appetite which was unexpectedly overwhelmed by the creaminess of smoked salmon and eggs.
Apart from the hearty breakfast, BeanSTRO also offers a selection of desserts which we bought some to try though they were not part of the review. (Scroll to bottom for details)

Thank you Herbert and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® for the invite.
The Tiramisu ($10) was too dry and lacked coffee aroma, though the sweet Chantily cream served alongside was a nice touch.
The filling of the Cream Puff ($8) between two dry shells was rather cloying, but not too sweet.
The Mango Almond Tart ($8) had a nice crumbly texture but passable. The breakfasts are more enjoyable than the desserts, which could have tasted better if not served too chilled.
