Great for breakfast

Very pleasant and effective wait staff. Good speed on the service. Well-prepared items with many more unusual offerings among the more standard fare. Busy at 9AM

My family and I had breakfast at the Broken Yolk this week. We have visited this establishment several times and in the past it was okay...However, I have to say that this has to be the worst visit we have had. It was a 20 minute wait for breakfast...once we got in and ordered it took a long time to... More

Took my aunt and were a little hesitant because of bad reviews. But let me put those fears to rest. Fernando was the greatest server. The food was delicious and the service was 5 star. Will definitely be going back.

Go to the Mission Valley one! This one typically has several open tables and a 20 minute wait time. Once a table is actually cleared, someone comes to reset it without clean hands, but it is sticky anyway so why worry? The management seems uninterested in providing a good dining experience. THAT HAS NOT BEEN THE CASE IN MISSION VALLEY... More

Our faithful Tripadvisor app has led us to the Broken Yolk in Chula Vista. Our GPS got us to the shopping area but left us driving around to find this popular restaurant for a good Saturday brunch. We prefer the outdoor sitting when we can find a good shaded one like they have here. We choose a table near the... More

Broken Yolk café, Chula Vista, Ca. 7/8/15 Before heading back to Yuma, Az. our son took us out for breakfast. This place is very nice and the service and food is above average. I did notice that coffee is outrageous, almost $3.00. Cap & Virginia

Skip the staggering 12-egg omelet and instead, choose one of the many breakfast plates served up at the Broken Yolk in Chula Vista. Great selections; family favorites are the machaca plate, the California burrito and any combo with the spicy chorizo sausage. Usually packed with lots of families (although lots of seating, both inside and on the patio) go early... More

The breakfast burrito is incredible and the beans and rice are great as well. The lunches are just okay. The coffee is not good and the service is a bit slow.

The food here was average. Service was friendly and proficient. Location in a nice shopping complex was great. We ordered Two eggs over easy with sour dough toast and polish sausage and a Cobb salad with grilled chicken add-on. Prices were OK. Breakfast was average, and toast was the best part. Salad was generous in size, but the dressing was... More
