Just had brunch at a little hip and exciting restaurant called Prime & Toast, opposite Amiri Diwan/Seif Palace, Gulf road (a few shops down from Coffee Bean).
My niece had been telling me about it for a while but just didn't get a chance to try it out, until today. Dropped my princess off at an art workshop and met a friend for brunch there. We were both mighty impressed with:
1. It's casual, Soho feel. 2. The menu was really interesting. 3. It was really tasty.
Examples: Spinach and mushroom omelette, huevos rancheros, Thai eggs, pancakes, waffles, steak and scrambled eggs, farmer's omelette with pumpkin, zucchini, carrot and peppers.
I had the eggs Benedict on a bagel (EB they were good; with hollandaise sauce and beef bacon - also they deliver :O) If you're a purist then the bagel was unbagel- like and more like focaccia but tasty, really liked the grilled tomato with a sprinkling of herbs- Yum! I give it a 8/10.
My friend had the French toast with maple syrup which was excellent 9/10. I prefer a little cinnamon on mine but it was very good.
My little pumpkin, when she arrived, had the fried eggs sunny-side up with a side of beef bacon which she woofed down and said it was much better than her mumma makes, so 10/10.
Borrowed this pic from their FB page but it comes with two eggs and a grilled tomato.
The hot chocolate was a kiddies' delight and I should know I've paid for so many and they've been left undrunk. All the above and 4 black coffees came to KD 8.900 which I thought was pretty good value. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Breakfast/brunch is served from 8AM-3PM. Lunch and dinner served, salads and sandwiches are served all day and night.. yes it's open 24 hours Tel. 22411252
They have opened another one at Bida'a opens 8am-12 midnight.
Update- New kid's (or adults ;o) M&M pancakes on the menu.
