“not sure what all the fuss is about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Visited recently after all the gushing reviews and left wondering if it was the same place. The food was good,no doubt, but the service was curt bordering on rude, especially compared with the normal level of service in American restaurants. Won't be going back there again.

“Consistently Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Broken Egg in Lakewood Ranch is always on our short list when it comes to breakfast or lunch. Egg Skillets are great (Try Cassies Favorite). Service is good and the price is right. No matter how busy they are you never have to wait long for a seat. 3 locations throughout the area but if you want to see Dicky V than head to the Lakewood Ranch location.
