Read the reviews and it seemed like a good place to take the family. My husband and I had the breakfast burritos and our 5 year old actually tried a little of everything. The servers were really friendly and helpful. We all left full and happy, so this is definitely a good place to take the family.

We had been told they have good food and we were not disappointed! My husband had the Monte Cristo that was prepared with care and I had the Premier Breakfast! I ordered a side of salsa and our waitress, Karen G told it would be good and it was very flavorful! We were looking for direction and our waitress could... More

First, a BIG shout out to our Simply Superb Server, Nancy. She was great and the reason we came back twice in the same week. Attentive without being intrusive, great sense of humor and knows the area very well and provided helpful insight. I'm not a picky eater, but yesterday I was feeling indecisive. Nancy asked a couple of questions,... More

First meal in San Diego only a short joirney from our hotel. Had the American breakfast and partner had the Premier breakfast. Unlimited coffee brought to our table regular. Our meals were large and filling. Very friendly staff and lucky enough no waot. Will return here again!

We ordered the Golden State Benedict, The eggs, perfectly poached and I emphasize perfectly. This alone is a very promising sign because you would be surprised how often poached eggs miss the mark. My favourite is American Breakfast, order whites only, came with 2 eggs ommlete with Bacon. Served with your choice of home fries, hash browns or fresh fruit.... More

Great menu selection. Everything is made there--muffins, biscuits, etc. Prices are fair and service was superb. A very popular spot in Pacific Beach.

Atmosphere was dated, service was satisfactory, food quality and quantity was barely average but prices were ok for San Diego.

Hubby and I stopped in for breakfast and we very happy with everything. I had a Benny and he had an French toast and both we served hot and tasty. We had a waitress named Nancy who was excellent, and seemed to really enjoy her job. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was it is a bit... More

Based on the TripAdvisor forum this place was highly recommended, but it was basically a Dennys miles from the beach. Service was slow and food was pricey for what you get (2 gluten free pancakes for $12? Not including the bacon and eggs add-on?). My advice is to skip Broken Yolk and hit up one of the many restaurants right... More
