MELBOURNE | Are you a good egg? New South Melbourne café, Good Egg, is a bright and exciting café located opposite South Melbourne Market that focuses on highlighting the humble egg, building a menu around this single offering. This unique concept came about after co-owners Greg and Nick realized how popular the egg and bacon rolls were at their other café, Wall Two 80, in Balaclava.

A cute little café with an overarching yellow-and-white egg-themed design, Good Egg caters equally well to those seeking a take-away coffee and quick meal, and to those who prefer to sit down and enjoy a messy burger or healthy salad. The ornamental yellow bicycle positioned out the front window alludes to the fun and youthful vibe of this venue.

The menu is seasonal, with the current summer menu ranging from Scotch eggs (pork & fennel with roasted tomato relish, or falafel with harissa & tahini dressing), burgers and salads. Burgers vary in ingredient combinations, but all are served on Challah buns (supplied by Woodfrog Bakery in St Kilda) and offer the option of the egg being cooked messy or over easy. The “B&E” is the star burger brought across from Wall Two 80, containing free-range maple cured nitrate-free bacon, egg, Swiss cheese, mayo and houses of parliament sauce. The “Avo” is another crowd-favourite, influenced by Mexican flavours, with sliced avocado, egg, roast corn salsa, corn chips, jalapenos and a lime aioli.

Salad highlights include the “Niche” (soft boiled egg, baby cos, mount zero olives, chat potatoes, green beans, red onions, smoked cherry tomatoes and a tarragon vinaigrette) and the “Bowl” (miso soft boiled egg, broccolini, fresh greens and red rice with tamari roasted nuts and seeds, and a spiced yoghurt dressing). The “Bowl” was a favourite salad amongst everyone when we attended, with the nutty and crunchy red rice perfectly balancing the softly boiled egg, with a slightly Asian flavour permeating.

Drinks range from simple coffees, to house-made oolong iced tea, organic cola and sparkling water. For something a bit sweet, their ‘April Fools Fried Egg’ can be mistaken for an actual fried egg, with a white meringue disc cleverly topped with a dollop of lemon curd.

All eggs are supplied by Real Eggs, which is a family-owned business spanning across generations. Their farm in Yandoit (just outside of Daylesford) uses a holistic farming model, where the chickens fertilise the land on which they roam free, and they have a synergistic relationship with the other animals on the farm. Real Eggs significantly differs from other farms thanks to the low density of their farming; each hectare of land is occupied by 8 chickens, as opposed to other free range farms where each hectare of land can be occupied by up to 10,000 chickens! Having lots of land on which to run around is extremely beneficial to the chickens, and results in the eggs having a cleaner and crisper taste.

The genuine and successful working relationship between Good Egg and its local suppliers (including Real Eggs) is what the food industry should be all about. Good Egg believes in only using top quality produce, which makes them an “eggcellent” (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves) fit with the other producers and cafes surrounding South Melbourne Market.
