Average food, uncomfortable ventilation is cold and blows directly on you. English muffin was tough, raisin toast mediocre, omelette with chorizo was good. Over priced and cannot recommend.

Most money I have ever spent on breakfast and I have had breakfast at a 5 Star restaurant in Ireland! There were four of us and our bill came to over $70. Eggs, we had eggs? Not caviar eggs, chicken eggs. Hash browns undercooked. It has a reputation that it doesn't live up to. Not sure what the draw is... More

Food was great (hash browns perfect done), service was great (friendly and attentive), but the ambiance was so horrible I couldn't stay there more than was absolutely necessary. At a minimum, the worn, stained carpet needs to be replaced with hard surface flooring and the whole place repainted. Replace all burnt out light bulbs. School pennants are not decor. Never... More

This is a long time breakfast spot in downtown Ann Arbor. Decent breakfasts but service can be spotty. Tables could use a good cleaning. Menus were dirty. Restrooms are down a flight of stairs so that could be difficult for some. Love the University of Michigan memorabilia.

Stopped by for lunch take out. I ordered their tuna melt and a cheese burger for my wife. We won't do that again. The prices were extremely reasonable, but the quality of the food was poor. First, the tuna melt was very greasy and bland. The hamburger with three cheeses and bacon was just ok, also very greasy. we'd certainly... More

Crowded. Ok food. Got an omelett that was pathetic. Had a few tiny bites of meat in It. Daughter had some kind of pancakes that were ok

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 absolute tower of whipped cream.

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
