Since our hotel stay did not include breakfast, I asked around for a good breakfast place on Orchard Road that we could go to. Two places were recommended to us - Wild Honey and Jones the Grocer. We ended up going to Wild Honey since we went for a little wander across the road to Scott's Square from Hilton Singapore, where we were staying.
Eggs Benedict ;)
Apparently, Wild Honey has a no-photography policy but we didn't know until we were leaving the premises and someone saw Hubby taking photos with my iPhone4S and told him to stop. What is it with establishments that don't allow people to take photos? I don't understand it. Anyway...
The decor in Wild Honey is pretty nice and the ambiance is good too, I wouldn't mind spending the morning here with a bunch of friends and enjoying breakfast. When we arrived, we were told that there would be a 30 minute wait if we wanted a table unless we sat on the bar stools (where the huge columns are), it didn't really bother us so we went for that option. They have photos of the food on an iPad which you can flick through at the cashier counter while waiting for the table to be set.

Some decor around the restaurant
The menu consists of all day breakfast items, sandwiches, tarts, and some sweets. There are 16 breakfast items to choose from, we had a pretty tough time deciding as they all sounded good. In the end, we settled for the English and European breakfast, as well as a pot of organic Chilean rose hip tea (S$6) to share.
Rosehip tea has a tart flavour
Love all the touches here and there which adds to the overall ambience
Hubby had the European breakfast (S$18), which is Wild Honey's version of eggs benedict - two perfectly poached egg, sauteed mushrooms (underneath the eggs which you cant see in the photo), imported Italian prosciutto and homemade Hollandaise sauce on their signature brioche. We were both very impressed with this - the brioche was very nice and the whole combination of eggs, mushrooms and prosciutto went well together. I wish I had ordered this.
Beautiful poached eggs
I had the English breakfast (S$22) which was the full works with pork (yes!) back bacon and Cumberland sausage, as well as eggs any way, sauteed mushrooms, Dad's baked beans, breakfast potatoes, grilled vine ripened tomatoes, and signature brioche. I chose to have scrambled eggs, and they turned out to be pretty good (soft and fluffy). I also loved the brioche, they were very soft though not as buttery as the ones we make (different type probably but no complains). The only thing I didn't like was the baked beans... I would have no problems if they gave me baked beans out of the tin (I like those actually with breakfast) but I think this is homemade using borlotti beans if I'm not wrong and the sauce is slightly spicy with a Mexican-kinda influence. I couldn't eat it and passed it to Hubby. Overall, it was a good breakfast though.
Love the brioche!
Nice fluffy scrambled eggs
Dad's baked beans
We watched the kitchen action from where we sat... very very busy!
Nice colorful glass structure at Scotts Square entrance
Verdict: A great breakfast/brunch place or just catching up with friends.
