This all day cafe and bakery in a spot where Crustacea used to be in Rockwell serves single-origin coffee as early as 7am. But trust me, it is more than just a breakfast place.
Hatch 22, obviously a play on the phrase "Catch 22", is more famous as Chef Erwan Heussaff's new place. You know, the brother of every Filipino's dreamgirl Solenn Heussaff..... And boyfriend to another dreamgirl Anne Curtis.
We ordered and shared a bread basket and sausage platter. But my growing boy had his fav stylized tapsilog. Tender slices of beef on a bed of garlic rice topped with fried egg.
I love bread. And my growing boy loves his rice. The bread basket and sausage platter is good for the 3 of us sharing. Brioche, cinnamon roll, 3 kinds of sausages , accompanied by potato wedges, butter, jam, mustard, beets, etc.
Hatch 22 should be drawing in the same breakfast crowd patronizing nearby Starbucks and Pancake House. But I'd like to head back one evening and try some of their handcrafted cocktails. All-day breakfast place transforming into a bar as the sun sets. Love it!
There are other items we tried: the bestseller Fish & Camote Chips my young lady swears is soooo yummy and the Hangover Shells which I can do without. Bad choice. :-( I skipped the Hatch Pie and instead tried the Cinnamon Roll. Not bad.
