Broken Yolk is a step above most traditional Breakfast Dining establishments. This location had ample seating both indoors and outdoors. The service was prompt and very attentive. Beverage refills were tended regularly. The food selection was more than adequate and the portions were too.

Tried to find a breakfast spot and went where all the people were. Glad we did! The pancakes, French toast, and hash are great. Weird thing is they close at 3 so no dinner here.

I had strip steak and eggs for under $10, can't find that anywhere!!! What a convenient place to have breakfast. Close to my hotel when I want something cooked to order for me. I was checked on often by the staff, which I appreciate.
