Another Broken Egg Cafe

Today at church we had a baby dedication with a reception to meet the families/babies afterward. Since Daniel and I are still new, we opted to skip the reception and grab brunch on the way home.

A few weeks ago, we had seen Another Broken Egg Cafe and wanted to try it out but there always seemed to be a ridiculously long wait. Hoping we had beat the rush by skipping class, we went to the restaurant.

It started out good. We were told it would be a 15 minute wait to sit outside – the weather today was amazing, so we definitely wanted to take advantage of the sunshine. Besides that, the interior of the restaurant was really crowded.

That 15 minutes quickly turned into 30 and then 45. It was one of those situations that you debate leaving, but you know that as soon as you leave your table will come up. So we waited. And got hungrier and hungrier. Daniel is not a happy camper when he is hungry, so not a good combination.

We had already decided what we were eating {during the ridiculously long wait}. So we ordered as soon as the server came by. Several other tables were seated shortly after us and the server took their drink orders before going to get our drinks/place our order. I get that, but it was frustrating that everyone else had waited only half the time we had. I also get that {to some degree} it is luck of the draw and we just happened to arrive at one of those in-between times where we ended up waiting longer.

I ordered French Toast with a side of eggs and bacon. Daniel had the Belgium Waffle with eggs and bacon. The eggs were amazing – they must have been cooked in butter. The bacon was thick cut and smoky – very yummy. The French Toast was nothing to write home about. It was good, but I have made better at home and been served better at other restaurants.

Do the eggs and bacon make up for the long wait, the so so service and ok main dish? I don't know. I would give this restaurant a 3/5 and would definitely avoid it on a Sunday morning.

I don't think that Daniel and I have discovered our new favorite breakfast joint...

  1. I'm telling you, give this place another shot. I admit, the wait time can get yucky at times, and others, you can walk right in. We go there at least once a month and are never disappointed once we sit down.

  2. I admit the eggs and bacon were to die for. I would definitely venture back if I could get in without a wait time. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
