Things to do in Austin: Another Broken Egg Cafe

There are only a few days left before Matthew officially starts his second semester of law school and until I must again adjust to the loneliness and neglect brand new schedule, and so he and I have been soaking up his last few days of freedom.  I took him to a new restaurant called Another Broken Egg Cafe near UT downtown, and we beyond enjoyed ourselves.  One might say we in fact gorged ourselves, and have found a new favorite spot.

The menu is really unique and everything we tried was fabulous.  Might I recommend the Bacado Omelette?  Stuffed with crispy bacon and avocado and topped with melty Monterey Jack Cheese and fresh salsa? I should also mention the perfectly crisp and seasoned to high-heaven potatoes.  They will likely haunt my dreams.

This is not a sponsored post, by the way. Just sayin’.  If you’re in town, you should go.

PS – Hey Austinites! Another Broken Egg is better than Kerbey Lane.  Gasp!  That’s right.  I just said that.

  2. I completely get it about the spouse being in school.
    My hubs is working on his Master's online and while I'm in school as well, I am generally able to get mine done in the daytime hours. He, on the other hand, has to accomplish his in the evening after work.
    Leaves little time for much more than the occasional "grunt response" as to whether or not he wants cheese on his burger or a Coke Zero with his meal.

    It'll be worth it though.
    Good luck with the upcoming sem!

  14. we have one of those here in Birmingham and you ordered my favorite! Wanted to wish you & the husband luck with the second semester- my husband is on his LAST semester so I know how you feel losing him to the library! Surely all their hard work (and OURS as we support them!) will pay off :)

  21. I might have to come to Austin just to visit this place. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! And salsa on eggs is a new favorite (not something that is commonly done here in NJ). Sounds amazing! Maybe a nice little Austin trip this summer! haha Great photos too, as always.

  26. We have a Broken Egg Cafe in Broken Arrow, OK ... VERY close to my house. VERY CLOSE! And I love that omelette. I get the mini one that comes with a fruit parfait and muffin of the day. They also have AMAZING pancakes...the cranberry pecan is my fave. Now I want to go there...Saturday morning needs to hurry and get here!

  31. it's bedtime in Sweden and after seeing these pictures I'm officially hungry for breakfast! One of my favorite things about America is our obsession with yummy breakfast foods. I was just home on holiday and made sure to get a hearty omlette from my favorite local place. Europe needs to jump on the bandwagon!

  35. We have one in Tallahassee,Fl! Their quiche is phenomenal as is their potato sensations ( the crispy potatoes you mentioned, it's those with any 3 toppings of your choice and cheese of course.....to die for) the bananas foster French toast is also heavenly! As you can tell I'm a frequent customer!

  37. I haven't been to Austin since we did the the state capital field trip thing over a decade ago...But now I keep hearing cool things about it though and it's so tempting. I just might have to make it part of my USA itinerary next time I head north. (so weird saying that.. heading north to Texas.)
