We visited this restaurant 3 mornings in a row, and had a great meal every time. The service was awesome 2 mornings out of 3-we May have hit someone on their off day. The menu is comprehensive, and there is something for everyone.

Driving around looking for a breakfast restaurant while killing time for the freeway traffic to die down, we came upon The Broken Yolk Café. It's at the edge of a shopping center and difficult to see but upon seeing a sign with the word "yolk,"...More

Had a nice brunch here with friends. The speciality is breakfast food. Very nice waitress, prompt food service. Small mix up with potatoes. One member of our party received hasbrowns instead instead of the pan fried potatoes. This place gets crowded
