Breakfast at the Broken Egg, Baby!

4 Apr


We celebrated my son’s 14th birthday with a family breakfast at the Broken Egg on Siesta Key. There is also a Broken Egg in Lakewood Ranch, but the SK location is just a short bike ride from our pad. If the name Broken Egg rings a bell, it may be because it is Dick Vitale’s favorite morning haunt and he promotes them relentlessly on ESPN.


I tried their famous Pumpkin Bread French Toast and it was indeed tasty. I added a little whipped butter and topped it all off with some pancake syrup. Eileen had some coffee and a big bowl of fresh fruit, while the boys woofed down eggs, bacon and hash browns with jam and white toast.


The Broken Egg is a neat little place. It is certainly no secret and you may have to wait a few minutes to be seated. But don’t stress about that. Hey, you’re on beautiful Siesta Key! Relax, grab a cup of complimentary coffee, gaze at the cool local art, or simply watch the world go by along the sidewalks of Siesta Village. It is truly a wonderful place to be!
