Baked Eggs Italian-Style!

When we are craving baked eggs, we always head to Falai for a nice weekend brunch. It's a super cute Italian caffe conveniently located on the edge of Soho and Nolita, a perfect stop off before shopping! The space is really cute, modern and all white. Little white tiles cover the bar and floor, decorative mirrors fill the walls, and crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling. For food, we usually share one of the baked eggs, since they load it up with 4 eggs its a bit excessive for one person. The fontina and basil is probably my favourite but the mushroom and spinach with marscapone is also lovely. We also love this zucchini salad, super thinly sliced zucchini and layered up with golden raisins, pine nuts and then topped off with freshly grated ricotta cheese. It's so delicious and really refreshing! The pear salad is also really great. Another favourite item on the menu is the fresh ricotta and figs, its pretty rich and quite big so perfect to share! Their homemade sweets and coffee is also amazing, so pop in even for a sweet and cappuccino to go!
