Los Angeles-based brand Eggslut is world-famous for its short-order menu of egg-heavy breakfast burgers. Greg Papas and Jana Andrianopoulos loved the concept and thought Melbourne could use something like it. They opened the original Egglab in 2017, before moving up the road to Fitzroy.

The Fitzroy location is now takeaway-only, with just a street-facing canteen-style window. The Brunswick site, located on a busy corner, has that as well as two lines of high benches and barstools against the inside windows. While you eat, watch the world go by on Sydney Road or Albion Street.

The menu has all the soft-and-scrambly and fried-egg-featuring classics Egglab fans will recognise. That includes the popular Potato Head, stacked with a hash brown, fried egg, bacon, cheese and relish; the Scram with chives, caramelised onion, cheese and house-made chipotle; and the Chilli Scramble with feta, lemony rocket and dill. For something meatier, there’s a classic cheeseburger or a chicken-schnitzel sanga with dill mayo. Crisp fried sides include potato gems, waffle fries and hash browns.

And if you’re looking for a hangover cure – as tends to happen at places like Egglab – you can smash a Bae Juice with your breakfast sanga. The Korean pear juice is purported to help with hangovers. Espresso, milkshakes and squeezed-on-site orange juice are also on hand.
