Good Vegetarian Options
Just off Soho’s Carnaby Street in Kingly Court + serving food all day long, The Good Egg is a spectacular all day dining destination for a Tel Aviv-inspired breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner (try the award-winning
shakshuka!). The menus here cater very well to both meat eaters + veggie/vegan diners; central to the restaurant's vibrant atmosphere is a huge clay oven + long open kitchen bar, where guests can choose to dine while they enjoy the theatre of the chefs at work, unless they’d prefer a table away from the action. Guests can also eat
al fresco on the terrace – heated + covered Oct-Mar, and open + sunny during the summer months. Stunning seasonal house cocktails, craft beers, natural wines + desserts are on offer here too, making this the perfect pit stop before or after visiting the many theatres or other entertainment spots that lie just a few minutes’ walk away. Enjoy £5 cocktails during their Happy Hour, 4-7pm Mon-Fri, and bottomless brunch every Sun. Great for large groups.

Food was good but we had to wait for a long time for our coffees and had to ask them to check on our drinks order.

Nice food, hit and miss service. Quite slow and inattentive. Front door kept being left open with freezing air blowing in, none of the staff closed it, we had to get up to do so on multiple occasions.

This is the 3rd time I've eaten at The Good Egg and it never fails to impress. The food is excellent and we had a lovely waitress who, despite technical problems with the till, was helpful and thoughtful. Had a great evening meal, prior to going to the theatre - good timely service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for either a quiet meal alone or for a group where sharing the food means you get to taste even more of the menu!

From the moment I walked into the restaurant, I was not greeted and was left to wait for the hostess. A few servers saw me but avoided eye contact. Once we were finally seated it took about 15 minutes to place our drinks order. The server forgot about 2 food items that we had ordered, served my drink without ice or fresh mint (as described on the menu) and when I sent it back I was told they did not have any fresh mint left. We ordered 7 pieces of chicken and only 6 were served, the water glasses were practically thrown on the table and there was a delay in receiving our starters and told that their systems were down. The overall experience was disappointing and I will not be returning in a hurry.

I love the good egg in Stoke newington, but unfortunately this did not live up to expectations. Service was not great - had to call someone over every time to take a drinks order/food order/desert menu/bill. My 3 friends and I went there to celebrate my friends 30th birthday and despite us all wearing party hats (!!) and having banners it was a birthday not one single member of staff said celebrations or offered any sort of 'on the house' drink/desert to the birthday girl. Most of the staff seemed uninterested, some seemed rushed off their feet and others miserable.
Such a shame as the food and drinks are good - as is the interior - but they need to step up the service and be more attentive.
I would have complained in the restaurant but given the occasion, did not want to distract from my friends birthday meal.

The food wasn't great. French Toast was too sweet.
The cornbread was also very sweet and extremely dry and crumbly.

The food was great, and it has a nice vibe. But our waitress was bad. Waited 30minutes for our drinks. She forgot to put the order in! when we finally got them, the size of a £9 cocktail was atrocious, and tasted watered down and weak. I would go again, jist for the food,but not on a weekend and definetly wouldnt order cocktails.

very flavoursome food. was really annoyed when I asked the waitress if their prosecco was dry and she said she doesn’t now because she doesn’t drink .. They only have 2 in the menu . And I mentioned this to the manager on duty at that time. I hope my comment won’t put off potential customers coz it’s a simple restaurant with good food and the location is really nice ..
