I had brunch at The Broken Yolk with a friend this past weekend because I heard they had great gluten free breakfast. As a celiac I was very excited to try it out. Unfortunately, the rumors I heard were untrue. I ordered the gluten free waffle with over medium eggs and bacon. 1. The waffle was grey in color, had no salt, and tasted like chemicals. I've never tasted anything like it and I burped up tge nasty thing hours and hours later. I only ate about 1/4 of it. 2. I dont typically fuss over eggs, I tend to order them over medium because many restaurants tend to undercook them. These eggs were not even over easy. I had to scrape off a thick layer of clear undercooked membrane, but decided against eating them after a couple cautious bites. 3. The 2 tiny pieces of bacon were the only thing I finished. 4. My black coffee never once got refilled. 5. Our waitess didnt seem to want to explain the menu to me, nor would she make eye contact with me for the remainder of our time there. My meal was $15.90, which is absurd for the tiny amount of food that was served. To The Broken Yolk's credit the manager did take notice thst I had barely touched my meal and asked if there was something wrong with it. I was so upset and didn't feel like complaining or fussing, so I stayed silent and told him I just wasn't hungry. But while I am still experiencing a flare-up 4 days later and have been in pain ever since I've eaten here, I felt it important to leave an honest review.

The staff was very attentive to prevent cross contamination. The waitress Aurora, the manager, and the cook all came up to confirm the food order to prevent cross contamination. Delightful experience. I ordered the Sope, but replaced the base with corn tortillas because there isn’t a dedicated GF fryer. I’m fairly certain they have a dedicated waffle maker though.

We joined the waitlist and grabbed a menu before going in and taking our seats. The menu is clearly marked with Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free options. The only two options marked gluten free were their Steel Cut Oats and gluten free pancakes.

Great food, extensive menu and a knowledgeable staff. I had the Baja Breakfast tacos and they were delicious! Not everything is marked with a GF, but I spoke with the server and she walked me through options. Also, the mimosa flight is really fun!

I got the Heuvos Rancheros with corn tortillas. The beans are a little underflavored, but everything else is so delicious! This restaurant also has an option for gluten free pancakes, which I might try next time :)

No true gluten free menu. 2 items are marked gluten free: gf pancakes and oatmeal. No gluten free bread options. Most items can be prepared gluten free but unsure if they are celiac friendly. Great breakfast menu otherwise. Coffee is tasty as well.

I ordered am omlette with home fries and fruit (they allowed me to sub a bread for a 2nd side.) All food was fresh and good and it came out very quickly.
