Overall Rating: 4.25 out of 5

Before I began writing restaurant reviews, I typically ate at the same restaurants over and over, but I can now step outside of my culinary comfort zone. That’s what led me to try Another Broken Egg Café on Alexander Drive near Kroger in the Washington Walk Shopping Center.

The restaurant, which serves breakfast, brunch, and lunch, offers a wide variety of traditional Southern favorites, such as chicken & waffles, and more unique menu options, such as the Mardi Gras omelet, which contains crawfish and shrimp. I’m not a seafood eater, but I know many others would love that dish.

Unlike other cafes, the eatery has a full bar, so diners can enjoy cocktails, including mimosas and mojitos, with their meal.

As you may have already guessed, Another Broken Egg Café was founded in Louisiana. Besides the one in Augusta, which opened in February 2024, the company has nearly 100 locations throughout the Southeast and beyond.

Whenever I visit a new restaurant, I usually look over the menu first and sometimes decide what I want to order before I even get there. But that wasn’t the case at Another Broken Egg Café, where it took me a little longer to make up my mind.

I chose the Southwest Scrambler (see photo above), a dish made with scrambled eggs, a Spanish sausage called chorizo, onions, and chiles topped with Cheddar Jack cheese and served with tortillas, guacamole, and salsa. I ordered grits as my side item. My wife, Rebecca, ordered shrimp ‘N grits, one of her favorite meals.

We both enjoyed our brunch, though chorizo is spicier than the sausage I’m used to eating.

When we went, the restaurant was crowded with diners at both the indoor and outdoor tables, but we didn’t wait very long to receive our food and drinks. While there were many other customers, Another Broken Egg Café wasn’t loud, making it a good location for a business meeting.

As for value, I think the restaurant’s prices are reasonable, especially considering it’s a little more upscale than other local eateries, such as The Brunch House and That Flippin’ Egg. At Another Broken Egg Café, we paid $16.99 for shrimp ‘N grits, which is exactly what The Brunch House charges for the same dish.

The Brunch House doesn’t offer omelets, but That Flippin’ Egg does. The omelet I ordered at Another Broken Egg cost $13.99, only $1.50 more than the cost of the same dish at That Flippin’ Egg.

Rebecca and I agreed the eatery is definitely worth another visit.
