Description: Will open at the new location on 02/22/2018 【About Eggcellent】 Everyday’s an excellent moment at Eggcellent… I want to create a place where people can feel energy through our daily life and moments. One day, my American friend said to me, as she saw Japanese people running on to the train during the morning rush hour, "…Why are they running? Take it slow…" Of course, for most Japanese people, the morning is the busiest time of the day. Mornings tend to be spent for commuting to work. On the other hand, in other countries, foreigners are very good at using time in the mornings. For example, having a power breakfast and sharing the future visions with their business partners. Or spending a wonderful morning with their loved ones, or maybe sometimes using that time for reading your favourite novels. That's what connects and creates a good day; a good life. A good career leads to good performances. Spending some good time eating together is such a wonderful thing. Therefore, morning time, with a good breakfast leads to such positive physical health. They understand this way of life to create a positive energy. We would like Japanese people to feel and experience this morning culture from around the globe. Through this 'morning culture', we hope you will find physical fitness, mental health and power for life by creating 'excellent moments' here at Eggcellent. The Egg Kurofuji farm is at an altitude of 1100m surrounded by beautiful nature in Yamanashi prefecture. At Eggcellent, we only use freshly delivered eggs born from stress-free, free ranged chickens that live on this farm. They eat safe and friendly seeds, and breathe in this beautiful nature daily. We receive our delivery of fresh eggs everyday straight from the farm as soon as they pop. To keep the soil in good condition for the farm and the chicken house, we use the method of organic agriculture (BMW methods). So the farm land is operated by the cycle of nature. You can see by their behaviour, how much the chickens are growing by love and support that they get through the farm. So please enjoy these rich eggs that are delivered from these wonderfully happy and healthy real organic chickens.

The salads are both nice to see and delicious, a great combo. We also took the croque madame, with lots of cheese and eggs obviously. The pancake was simple but delicious. A great place to got to if you're around, especially in that fancy cute restaurant! Staff is nice too.

As you queue up (very likely) you notice almost everyone in queue is a foreigner, western one at that. They probably flock here due to its high rating from TripAdvisor and yeah i did fall for it too. Roppongi Hills is an upper class ex pat place so their prices equally reflect so. Okay so they secure premium organic eggs and they're the egg specialists around here. Let your tastebuds be the judge, its good but equally good as elsewhere and perhaps without the luxury of that pricing buffer. So yeah as Speedy says, don't believe the hype

This is a very popular breakfast spot in Roppongi Hills. I loved their healthy breakfast bowls, but found my guilty pleasure in the coconut pancakes. They taste like coconut cream pie. Yum!

The only disappointment is that when you order the normal pancakes they bring you about a tablespoon of syrup. When we asked for more, we got a tiny bit more for 250 yen. I also noticed that they always serve Japanese customers first. We weren't happy with the service, but the food was delicious.

Made a reservation on their website via their contact page which turned out to be a good decision as there was a queue outside the cafe at 10am on a saturday morning. The staff were so sweet, they even wrote a little message, complete with drawings, to wish me a good day and placed it on my table.
The ambiance was relaxing too. We ended up getting their signature eggs benedict, which was delicious! The hollandaise sauce was spot on. Do visit if you have the chance!
