The Good Egg is an all-day cafe that you can quite easily spend all day in. The food is middle eastern inspired, and is best when sharing. Really you want to come here on a Thursday or Friday lunch time when you’re not in any great rush, and you can peruse the cocktail menu in the name of ‘research’. The shawarmas and anything involving aubergine are definitely worth ordering.
