Description: Hungry? Then Get In Here! Serving home-style food since 1979, the Broken Yolk Cafe is a favorite among locals and hungry visitors alike. With a strong dedication to good food and equally good service, the Broken Yolk has built a reputation for its large menu, ample portions and freshly-made flavor. Real shredded hash browns - not dehydrated potatoes. Salsa made fresh daily - never from a can or jar. With over twenty different omelets plus a large variety of breakfast favorites including pancakes, waffles and French toast, Broken Yolk satisfies even the heartiest of diners - all in a clean, comfortable and casual atmosphere. Breakfast is served all day long, but if it's lunch you're craving, try one of our signature salads, juicy half-pound burgers or street taco plates. Whenever you're hungry, Broken Yolk is your place for fresh food served everyday of the week. Call or e-mail us for information about our private meeting room!

Food was pretty good. Service needs to be "tuned-up" a bit...never offered a beverage, dessert, etc.

“Indoor-Outdoor: Your choice in dining”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

The newest breakfast place in the desert is more than a needed treat! As outdoor dining is one of the 'pluses' to living in the Sonora Desert, "The Broken Yolk Cafe" brings a breakfast and lunch menu that pleases all residents and travelers. A remodeled site on a busy intersection off Hwy. 111 offers you a choice of indoor or outdoor patio dining. Summer fans and winter heaters adorn the large patio area in accordance with the weather; plenty of room inside for couples, families and/or groups. Menu offers an array of breakfast items to please everyone as well as soups and cool salads for lunch. The Manager was very pleasant as well as the waitresses and busboys on our recent visit. If you're an early riser, catch the 6:00 AM-8:00 AM breakfast $4.99 specials!!

“New, Maybe going through the early growing pains”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Our regular Tuesday morning men's group (8 of us) was looking for a change, so decided to try the newly opened Broken Yolk. Unfortunately, the food was bad and the service was not much better. One guy's omelette was dead cold. Someone else asked for a side order of eggs, which after 30 minutes had not arrived. He reminded the waitress, and 10 minutes later, still no eggs. He finally told the waitress not to bring them, and she responded that they were coming out whether he wanted them or not. Coffee was refilled one time, then we were left alone. Not one of the eight of us was satisfied with his entire meal. To be fair, this place has only been open a month or so and perhaps was suffering from the opening jitters. Our consensus was that we will go back to our old standby.
