CARROLLWOOD — Since 1979, the Broken Yolk Café has served up breakfast and lunch to diners in 17 locations throughout San Diego County, Southern California and Mesa, Ariz.

Now the restaurant expands to the East coast, including a location set to open Monday in Carrollwood.

It's the first of several Florida spots for the Broken Yolk.

"We're excited to jump from west to east," said Lisa Erickson, marketing manager. "We are slated to do 10 locations in Florida."

The Broken Yolk Café serves breakfast all day long, and diners can choose from a big menu of freshly made items.

"We're known for large portions and homemade food," Erickson said.

The menu includes a variety of omelets, pancakes, waffles, egg dishes, and more. Erickson said the top three menu items are the Nutella crepes, tiki toast, which is made with Hawaiian bread; and eggs Benedict.

Most breakfast menu items come with a choice of home fries, hash browns, fresh fruit, rice, or beans, as well as a biscuit, blueberry muffin, toast, or tortillas. Fresh salsas and sauces, such as poblano and hollandaise, are made daily. Lunch items are also on the menu, and diners can choose from burgers, sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads.

In 2009, the Broken Yolk gained national notoriety after being featured on the Travel Channel's Man vs Food. "We have a Broken Yolk challenge which is a 12-egg omelet with pancakes and hash browns," said Erickson. It is served on a 15-inch pizza pan and there's a one-hour time limit to finish it.

The Broken Yolk Café is located at 10442 N Dale Mabry Highway. The restaurant is open daily, 6 a.m.-3 p.m. Call (813) 769-9358, or visit for more information.
