This place is a nice gem where most students don't go, so it's not crowded. The chocolate chip pancakes are large and thick, and they come with plenty of chocolate. The order came with 3 pancakes, but I only needed half that order to be full and satisfied. The hot chocolate also comes with an... read more

Every city has those few local restaurants that are a must for the out of towners. This is one of my favorites. The staff are usually helpful and the prices are reasonable. I recommend any of their omelettes. My favorite time to go to The Broken Egg is in the spring/summer. The out door seating is appealing while soaking up... More

I really enjoyed my late breakfast at this place and it was fast and decently priced for the quality of the food which was high. The service is prompt and you'll have your food quickly. The decor is old, but family oriented and nice to bring everyone along for a great meal. This is the place to eat breakfast or... More

This is our favorite breakfast place in Ann Arbor. We live 25 minutes away but when we get the chance to go, this is the spot. The selection is very diverse and unique. If you are looking for something outside of just your normal eggs and bacon breakfasts, go here. They always have some kind of neat specials to choose... More

The food was very good and just a little pricey $3.50 for a medium orange juice. I could tell it's a local favorite as it was packed and had people waiting. This is just my observation, a few of the staff looked like they were miserable, running around doing everything at once and disorganized. There is no one at the... More

This restaurant used to be one of the best in town as it used the finest ingredients in preparing it's food, but it has slipped lately. The hostess may bite your head off or just be cool, but if your hungry you can get a decent breakfast here.

Broken Egg is a nice little diner. The wait staff was great. Food was plentiful. 2 out of the 3 meals were also terrific. The 3rd -the vegetarian breakfast stew was a bit bland and mushy. Wished the hash browns in at had some crunch.

We enjoyed our visit to the Broken Egg. Fun little diner. Great atmosphere, and we even enjoyed reading the fun menus. Wait staff was attentive and nice, and the food was great. You will not go hungry.

We go every time. Guaranteed you will not leave hungry. Be aware that this is a very popular place, so if you come on weekends during rush times (noon'ish), might have to wait a few mins.

Complete, solid breakfast menu. Omelets are good; potatoes are real. Hot refilled coffee & standard A2 pricing. Located downtown on Main St, it has a great neighborhood style and staff is friendly. Within 3 blocks of the Farmer's Market, Co-op, Kerrytown and lots of cool local shopping -it's a happening area, particularly on Saturday mornings. Check it out!
