Broken Yolk – San Diego, California, USA

Well, we were kind of desperate not to eat room service for breakfast again, and this place seemed to be one of the only places that we could find any information about that would still be serving breakfast at about 11:00 in the morning. It was a bit out of our way, but we went there anyway. Let me say this right now – it wasn’t worth it! When we got there, the place was packed – which I mistakenly thought was a good sign. We ordered a couple of orange juices to start instead of coffee, however, only I got one. The waitress tried to spill ice water all over me as she was trying to take our order, and didn’t even realise that she was spilling it (despite the fact that I was looking at the water pouring out of the jug and moving my bag). I ordered eggs florentine with hash browns and a side of toast, while Martin went for a Mom omelette and tried again for that orange juice! My eggs florentine came slopped all over the plate, and the hollandaise sauce was disgusting! I managed to scrape some of it off, however I decided just to leave half of it because it was so smothered in it. The hash browns were ok – a bit too salty for my tastes. Martin said his omelette filling was not hot at all, and by the time he was three quarters of the way through it, he was sick of the sprouts (yuck – sprouts!). As we were leaving, the waitress apologised again for almost spilling water on me, and promised that next time we came it would be a better experience! Needless to say – there won’t be a next time. Even if we do return to San Diego at some point in the future, I certainly won’t be going there!
