Broken Yolk restaurants are expanding the menu


By Marti Gacioch

The Broken Yolk restaurants will take you far beyond eggs this summer with a dozen new menu items debuting and a new Mission Valley location set to open soon.

New breakfast dishes include the Good Morning Burger (fried egg topped with Applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo and cheddar cheese); Stuffed French Toast (filled with mascarpone cheese, topped with bananas and drizzled in caramel); and Border Benedict (carne asada covered with poblano sauce served atop a corn cake).

“Our new lunch items include Barbecue Pulled Pork Tacos served with coleslaw, and our new burgers include the True Blue Burger combo with blue cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise,” said Dimitra O’Rourke, assistant manager.

For 34 years, the Broken Yolk has served breakfast and lunch in dozens of ways. The restaurants are known for their extensive breakfast menu that offers egg specialties in every imaginable form, including poached, fried, over easy, scrambled, and some 20 different omelets. Pancakes, waffles, French toast and a variety of fruit-filled crepes round out the morning menu. The full coffee bar serves fresh cappuccinos, espressos and lattes.

The family friendly restaurants offer fresh-squeezed fruit juice every morning in flavors ranging from pomegranate to apple, grapefruit and orange.

“Later this month, we’ll be offering our new pineapple-orange smoothie with yogurt and our new blended strawberry lemonade,” O’Rourke said.

Lunch at the Broken Yolk comes in the form of tasty burgers, paninis, wraps, sandwiches, tacos, soups and salads.

Fresh, quality food in ample portions remains the standard at The Broken Yolk, which has multiple San Diego County locations and will soon expand into Orange County and Los Angeles County. Eight Orange County locations are planned over the next few years.

The Broken Yolk is open 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

daily, with locations including 1851 Garnet Ave., Pacific Beach; 11630 Carmel Mountain Road in the Carmel Mountain area of San Diego; and 7670 El Camino Real in La Costa.
