What it is: A few weekends ago we checked out Another Broken Egg Cafe at their location across from Duke hospital in the Pavilion East shopping center. I had heard a recommendation from another family that it was a good place to take the kiddos. We went on a Sunday morning, and unfortunately at that time, they had about a half an hour wait. It went pretty quickly and they had plenty of room for us to stand outside.
Once we were seated, we took a look at their menu. They had a nice kids' menu with lots of kid-friendly options. My boys, of course, chose the dollar pancakes with bacon (or turkey links or scrambled egg). Other options on the kids' menu included french toast, a "texadilla", a turkey wrap, or grilled cheese. Prices on the kids' menu ranged between $3.49 and $4.69. The regular menu had all sorts of delicious options including benedicts, omelets, waffles, and french toast.
The food took a little while to arrive, but once did did, it was delicious. The kids had plenty of food, and it was all tasty. The style of food reminded us a little of Brig's in S. Durham. So, it's nice that there's another casual breakfast option in a different part of Durham.
What we liked: The kids' menu had lots of good options, decent portions, and great prices. The rest of the food was tasty too!
What we would change: The wait was pretty long. However, we have encountered the same kind of wait when we head out to Brigs on a weekend morning, so those must just be busy times for breakfast stops. I bet if you went on a weekday the wait time would be much less.
