The Broken Yolk offers your typical breakfast fare along with some south of the border inspired dishes. The service was quick and friendly and the servings were generous. Can I just say Tiki toast? :)

Broken Yolk is a step above most traditional Breakfast Dining establishments. This location had ample seating both indoors and outdoors. The service was prompt and very attentive. Beverage refills were tended regularly. The food selection was more than adequate and the portions were too.

Having eaten at as lot of breakfast places around the country, the main thing you want to look for is the freshness in your meal...I know you want that in every meal but you can get away with it during other times of the day...More
