Another Broken Egg Cafe Review

My first dining experience at Another Broken Egg was in Charleston last December, and my second came about a month ago here in Atlanta. Since I've now been twice, in two different cities, I feel pretty good about giving a review.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice. It's pretty laid back and there's a quirkiness to the decor but not overwhelmingly so.

The Menu
I love that they have a nice variety of healthier offerings on their menu. Most restaurants today now have a healthy or "light" section but it feels like an afterthought as the options are limited to a salad or a bowl of soup. That's not the case at Another Broken Egg. Their healthier items include a jumbo gluten free pancake, an herbed egg white and roasted red pepper omelet, a granola, fruit, and quinoa bowl, salmon with jicama slaw, and black bean sliders.

The Food
When I first went I had a tough time deciding what to get but I eventually settled on their "Skinny Omelet." They use herbed egg whites with blanched asparagus, roasted red peppers, green onions, goat cheese, and roasted garlic cloves and served it with an English muffin and fresh fruit. I really enjoyed it. It tasted fresh, had great flavor, and was quite filling but I didn't feel loaded down after wards which I liked.

The second time I went I struggled again with picking a dish but I eventually settled on the Granola, fruit, and quinoa bowl. That was such a great decision. It was amazing. The dish consists of house made honey roasted granola, blueberry quinoa, strawberries, blueberries, and toasted coconut crusted bananas with coconut milk and a vanilla yogurt drizzle. I don't know who thought up this dish but they deserve an award. The coconut crusted bananas alone sealed the deal for me. There were so many flavors popping up in each bite and they all came together so beautifully.

Overall, they had great food, great service, at good prices. Be prepared to want everything on the menu. There are still multiple items I want to try like their Popeye's Favorite scrambled skillet and their *gasps* not healthier Cinnamon roll french toast. You should definitely check them out!
