Big Breakfast

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

We really enjoyed this breakfast. The restaurant was larger than we expected, but still quiet and personal service. My husband had the Borders Benedict. It started with corn cake then the egg and carne asada on top and green sauce. It was excellent and a good sized portion. I asked for a diet coke and it came in a very... More

The service was great. Lots of choices. Nice selection of hot tea. Sweet potato pancakes were good. I asked for butter instead of whipped cream which was not a problem. My husband had eggs benedict served with hash browns. The potatoes were crisp and brown on both sides and the eggs were good.

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!
