Loved this place!

Our first time going to this restaurant. We wish there was one near home. The portions were generous and all the servers and table bussers were very attentive. We would definitely go back!

A fantastic variety of breakfast dishes. The Tiki French toast was incredible. The tomato basil soup was great too. We are definitely going back!

Great little place near La Costa Resort. We had breakfast and big portions for a good price. Nice staff and big screen tvs and great music. Fun eats overall!

As the name suggests, this is a great place for breakfast. Good food at a good price. Very good all round choices ... Pancakes, benedicts, and traditional omelettes and eggs. Service was good, not exceptional. Coffee was very good, I had latte, my wife had Americano. We have been to three different Broken Yolks in the SoCal area, all consistently... More

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
