Bring on the Breakfast

Before Another Broken Egg Café set up shop in the old Burger Shack location, specialties such as eggs Benedict and banana-topped Belgian waffles may have been weekend-only indulgences. Not anymore. The Florida-based breakfast, brunch and lunch concept makes it easy to elevate your early-day meals all week long. Whether you’re a seasoned brunch enthusiast or you’re just excited to welcome a restaurant to Southlake that doesn’t dish out mainly burgers or Mexican food, prepare to add Another Broken Egg Café to your regular rotation.
The restaurant is open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., serving dishes that hit the spot and span the flavor spectrum. Craving something hearty and filling? Tempting options abound, from scrambled skillet creations and crave-worthy omelettes to fanciful salads and sandwiches.
Prefer to explore the sweet side of the menu? Treat yourself to delightful renditions of breakfast favorites: pancakes, French toast, waffles, cinnamon rolls and more. Even the granola is worth getting excited about. A mountain of honey-roasted granola is mixed with blueberry quinoa and crowned with fresh berries, coconut-crusted bananas and a drizzle of vanilla yogurt. Accompanied by a little pitcher of milk on the side, it’s basically a healthy breakfast sundae.
If you have no qualms about indulging, we suggest the Cinnamon Roll French Toast. It’s enticing on its own, but made exponentially better with the addition of Bananas Foster sauce, mixed berries and whipped cream. On the savory side, the Lobster and Brie Omelette is outrageously good. This cream cheese-filled egg specialty is stuffed with Brie and sautéed lobster meat, then adorned with diced tomatoes, green onions and a light champagne butter sauce. It’s a sure step up from anything you might think about preparing at home.
Another Broken Egg will romance you hard with luscious options and generous servings, but it also offers plenty for the health-conscious crowd. Take the Simply Salmon dish, for example. A healthy portion of Southwestern-seasoned salmon is served on a bed of colorful sautéed veggies. It’s a smart choice for a well-rounded meal. Or, just keep it simple with a cozy bowl of steel cut oats. Topped with mixed berries, local honey and fresh-grated cinnamon, it’s certainly not a bad way to start the day.
Neither is sipping a boozy beverage. The Nutella Iced Latte is not to be missed. Cold-brew coffee is combined with Nutella and RumChata, topped with a dollop of whipped cream and garnished with a biscuit beignet and a thick strip of bacon. It’s bliss in beverage form. Other brunchy cocktails such as bellinis, mimosas and sangria will also add a ray of sunshine to your morning.
Another Broken Egg Café puts breakfast on a pedestal. Which, if you ask us, is exactly where it needs to be.
