Silverspoon Restaurant – Silverstream, Upper Hutt

Silverspoon Restaurant –

Reviewed by Fi Fi, April 2016

The Place:

There is plenty of seating inside and outside.  They offer Vegetarian / Paleo / Vegan and gluten free.  You can order salad, steak, fresh fish, brunch and breakfast options, the food looked fresh.  We went on a Saturday around lunch time, and lucky for us the place was practically empty which resulted in our food coming out fast.

The Service:

The service was prompt and the staff were very friendly.

The presentation:

The food was plated up nicely and looked inviting.

  • The Benedict and Montreal – Both were pretty average.
  • The Eggs – were runny and warm.
  • The Bacon – the portion size was just right.
  • The Salmon – was okay.
  • The Hash browns – because they were placed in between the bacon and eggs they came out soggy.  The menu states that these are homemade, I beg to differ.
  • The hollandaise – was fairly yummy and creamy and it looked and tasted homemade.
  • The bread – the ciabatta was crunchy and tasted good.

Would we go again?

No, we would rather continue the quest to find great eggs to spam.


Style: Classic 6/10.

Taste: 6/10. The meal was average.

Originality: 4/10 – They only have the Benedict (bacon) option.   I ordered the Hash Stack, which was exactly the same except there were hash browns between the bacon and bread

Value: 7/10. $16 for the Benedict and the Hash Stack.  There were no Montreal (salmon) or Florentine (spinach) options on the menu.

Eggs: (how good they were): 6/10.

Overall score: 6/10

Location: 7 Kiln Street, Silverstream, Upper Hutt
