Turned out to be a cheaper version of Denny’s but with a smaller limited menu and absolutely terrible food. The coffee was horrible. My partner decided to try an espresso and it was equally horrible. I had a salad with grilled chicken- the chicken was...More

Stayed across the street from here and ended up going in for breakfast on most days. The range of breakfast items is really good and not too expensive. The service is also very fast and friendly.

Being a popular breakfast spot means get in early to beat the crrowds. Lots of egg choices, pancake and waffle choices, and specialties. You won't leave hungry. Many coffee drinks but even regular coffee is good and frequently refilled.

The Broken Yolk is a very friendly workman like cafe. A nice array of food especially focussed on breakfasts. Pancakes, omelettes fruit bowls are all delicious. The food is not high gastronomy but is really good and plentiful! This was my favourite breakfast stop during...More
