Another Broken Egg is a chain that originated in Louisina and now has several locations spread across the SouthWest region of the country. I usually try to visit and review locally owned spots, but I kept hearing how good this place was....so I thought I'd find out for myself. And with a tagline that reads "Inspiring eggs to excellence" - I was really curious!
I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived and were quickly seated. The place had a few patrons but wasn't packed at 12:30 p.m. The waitress greeted us and promptly took our drink orders. Iced tea for the lady, orange juice for me. The menu offers a pretty impressive selection of breakfast and brunch menus. Everything from omelettes to benedicts for the egg lovers, and burgers, salads and sandwiches for those in the mood for something else. We started off with some biscuit beignets - basically 8 small beignets tossed in powder sugar and served with a side of honey dipping sauce. They arrived and we started to kill 'em. They were pretty good...almost as good as the real deal from Louisiana. My only complaint is that they were a little on the hard side. But still worth the effort! We were now ready to order. Lisa decided to go with something called The Castine. It was scrambled eggs, ham, asparagus, mushrooms smothered in Hollandaise sauce on top of a croissant. Think eggs benedict, but with scrambled eggs instead. I decided on Eggs Sardou, which is an English muffin topped with sauteed spinach, artichokes and poached eggs. It is then topped with a mixture of Hollondaise and Florentine sauce. Pretty interesting.
After waiting a bit, our order was at our table. It was then that I realized I had forgotten to ask for my eggs to be cooked hard! I don't do runny. I hate to send food back...I always hate to be THAT guy. But our waitress was super nice and sweet and fixed the issue in no time. She even apologized for MY mistake. My plate arrived in a few minutes and to my liking. Time to grub! Boy am I glad we decided to visit Another Broken Egg. The food was great! Both our dishes were fresh and made to order. And you can tell they use nothing but fresh ingredients! We were both very happy and satisfied with our meals
Overall, I highly recommend Another Broken Egg Cafe. Great food and Great service! I will certainly be back for seconds!
Just a regular bloke, living and eating in Austin. Used to think brunch was for the pretentious, now I'm a fan. Catch me every week at a different spot, from the semi-fancy to the hole-in-the-wall around the corner
