Loved this little local breakfast joint!

We were staying at the nearby La Costa and wanted decent breakfast fare. This is in a strip mall of sorts, but we found the food to be very good for breakfast! Service was good as well, it's a family run business.

This place is busy - which is a good sign. The service was prompt and professional, thanks to Brittany. My chicken fried steak, hash browns & toast ($12) was delicious. A granddaughter had a HUGE breakfast burrito ($11) which she couldn't finish, it was so big. The other youngster had a Nutella/banana crepe (3) and she enjoyed but, couldn't finish... More

Good variety, good portions and pretty good food, but didn't like it as much as before. I would give it another try and sample something else on the menu. Others in our party were satisfied.

Big portions will keep you full for a while. Service was friendly and quick, even on a busy morning. Food tasted good, nothing special but nothing to complain about!

We were looking for a breakfast place near Oceanside and happened on the Broken Yolk. This is one restaurant you do not want to miss! The greeters are on top, the setting is really nice, service at 110% and the food is OFF THE CHART! You can also bring your dog and sit in very nice outside dining area. Come... More

The Mexican eggs Benedict was amazing! My husband loved his stuffed French toast and the service was decent. I'd definitely come back again!!

If you are staying at La Costa you can walk, or drive to this restaurant. I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast for a fair price. I wish we have discovered this place sooner.

Perhaps we should have chosen one of their specialty items, but I chose the "Mom" omelet" and my husband ordered the biscuits and gravy. The Mom omelet was basically onions, peppers and mushrooms covered by eggs. It wasn't wrapped in eggs as expected. No cheese and served with toast and potatoes. The potatoes were excellent. My husband's biscuits and gravy... More
