Another Broken Egg Cafe

About two weeks ago, it was time, once again, for the annual Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival. We haven’t been to the popular attraction in quite a while, so we decided to make a day of it. We had planned to go on Sunday morning to beat the crowd, but we wanted to enjoy an excellent breakfast together before we started our journey around each beautiful art-filled tent. There are several restaurants in downtown Fairhope that serve Sunday Brunch, but we were looking for an establishment that opened early and had a mouth-watering menu to go along with it. Another Broken Egg Café came to mind. We had passed by many times and noticed the long lines to get in and decided that they must be doing something right!

We were delighted to find it open on such a beautiful Sunday morning. We made our way inside to a table in the back. The waiter came pretty quickly and handed us the menus. On the menu, they had french toast, omelets, pancakes, and so much more. It was a hard decision to make but a good dilemma to be in. There were four of us that day, and we were not disappointed. My daughter enjoyed the kid’s meal which included a waffle with scrambled eggs and bacon. I went for the Southern Grilled Chicken Sandwich, with bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and a side of fruit. It came served on a brioche bun. It was tender and juicy and a great choice. If you are watching your carbs, like I am, then just remove the bread and eat only the meat.

Marty tried the Lobster and Brie Omelet. A cream cheese-filled omelet which comes topped with Brie cheese and champagne butter sauce. It was served with sautéed lobster meat, tomatoes, and green onions. Definitely, these meals were something good and different to try.

Marty’s husband decided on the Huevos Rancheros. A crispy tortilla with black beans, green chilies, onions over two medium eggs with cheddar jack cheese, hmmm! That looked amazing! It came with a side of salsa and sour cream. We were thrilled with the menu. Not the plain old breakfast menu, for sure. We will return again in the future. We liked the hours of operation, the location in downtown Fairhope and the menu for its variety.
