Breakfast at Shakespeare & Co – The Wave

Shakespeare & Co - The Wave Muscat

We have previously published a review of Shakespeare & Co in the Wave Muscat (Telephone: 2418 1363 | [geolocation]), we thought we’ll do another one specifically for breakfast. The menu of Shakespeare & Co is pretty extensive as may already know. This same menu has a section dedicated for breakfast dishes, another one for eggs, crepes, and one of serving Lebanese “saj” bread.

Shakespeare & Co - Breakfast

Not being ever over the breakfast of Slider Station, I decided to try to Eggs Benedict (RO 3.6) at Shakespeare & Co. The poached egg came with turkey bacon over an English muffin with roast potatoes and a special hollandaise sauce on the side. I found the dish to be average with no special kick or anything memorable about it. My friend had the Egge Florentine (RO 4.2) which was very similar to the Benedict with the turkey bacon replaced by smoken salmon. He also found his dish to be too boring.

We also tried something from the saj lebanese bread section. I have never heard of saj before, this turned out to be a think flat lebanese bread folded in half with a filling inside. The one we tried was the Zaater and Lebneh (thyme and yoghurt) (RO 1.8), in short: we were not impressed and I personally did not enjoy the texture of the feel of this bread.

To end our meal, we decided to try a crepe. I went for the almond and caramel crepe (RO 2.800). The crepe itself was nice, but I was not too fond of the filling I chose. Probably my mistake for ordering the wrong thing.

Shakespeare & Co - Breakfast

In total we ordered two egg dishes, one saj, one crepe, two glasses of orange juice, one small bottle of water, and a cappuccino. Our bill came to RO 20.318.

The service at Shakespeare & Co was alright, our food came as ordered and was not late.

Even though technically there wasn’t anything wrong with the food at Shakespeare & Co, I just did not find it interesting. Maybe we got spoiled by the amazing breakfast of Slider Station, but still I thought that this food was way too boring. I do not think that I will be coming here again for breakfast.

Has anybody been to Shakespeare & Co for breakfast? What do you guys think of it?
