We have searched high and low for a great breakfast since arriving in California last week. Yesterday was a disaster at The Daily News near the beach but today we stumbled upon this place. Yolk is a great place to bring your kids. Food was just right and for ONCE since we got here the COFFEE was good. Service was... More

It takes more than great food to create a great dining experience. After all, there are so many things to consider to call a restaurant “great”. For example, if the parking were inconvenient, the restaurant dirty or the staff inconsiderate there is no way the restaurant could be considered “great”. That’s obvious! But even without negative features as above, a... More

Had a great time and came in on national pancake day, so half of our food was covered. It was my birthday and they gave me a generous sized bread pudding that was pretty darn fantastic. Waitstaff was attentive and coffee filled routinely. Would definitely reccommend for breakfast.

The menu is extensive and the food is outstanding. As expected for a place like this, there might a wait on a Saturday morning, but it's worth it.

I visited The Broken Yolk Cafe on a Sunday morning at 11 am. It looked like lots of people in line, but I was seated within 5 minutes. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, and the menu is a nice mix of American and Mexican entrees. I ordered an omelet with hash browns. Wow...when I got it, I... More

We have visited several of the Broken Yolk Restaurants, but this one is our favorite. They have a large patio seating area which is a great place to sit for breakfast. They always have great service and the patio is a dog friendly area.

This place is super clean. The wait staff is super friendly. The parking is super good. Oh yeah, the breakfast is super too. Good spot whether you eat inside or outside. The food is plentiful and the cost is reasonable. I keep meaning to try other meals, but being an early riser, I just stop for breakfast and I am... More

We are pleased to recommend the Broken Yolk Cafe since we visit it often and it has always provided us with good service and a good meal at reasonable cost. On my last visit I ordered a tasty breakfast burrito which arrived in the usual excellent condition. Since I've lost a step or two since my active surfing days, this... More

I love eggs and breakfast in general. I've eaten here a couple of times and although the food looks great, there's just no taste. I've tried their omelets and eggs benedict.
