Another Broken Egg
Another Broken Egg brings a casual French country atmosphere and a delicious menu to Mountain Brook Village.
The restaurant, which began in Destin, Fla., opened last October and serves unique breakfast, brunch and lunch selections seven days a week.
The owners, brother and sister Miller and Ashley Phillips, grew up in the restaurant business having parents who owned The Flamingo Café in Destin and knew they would follow in their parent’s footsteps.
After deciding he wanted to open Another Broken Egg in Birmingham, Miller Phillips began looking for the right place and decided on Mountain Brook.
“I knew that people from Mountain Brook and this area go to Destin and they would know about [Another Broken Egg],” he said.
The restaurant, located at 2418 Montevallo Road, perfectly complements the French country theme with large vaulted windows and a quaint patio. Phillips said customers really love the patio this time of year and being able to bring their pets.
The only negative aspect of the location to Phillips is getting people from outside the Mountain Brook area to realize it is not difficult to find.
The location offers ample parking, however, and is very easily accessible from Highway 280.
Another Broken Egg’s menu is full of delicious selections including a variety of omelets, benedicts, burgers and fosters.
Phillips says one of the most popular menu items is the Eggs Blackstone which is an English muffin topped with grilled tomatoes, two medium poached eggs, Hollandaise sauce and bacon. The Bananas Foster is another crowd favorite.
All menu items are available at any time and all food is cooked to order.
“You can get a hamburger at 7 in the morning or a pancake at 2,” Phillips said.
The restaurant offers a new special, a new soup and a new quiche each week to give regular customers some variety.
The shrimp and grits special gives a unique spin to the classic dish with panko crusted grits served over a Cajun cream sauce with fresh, blackened shrimp surrounding the plate. This dish is sure to please.
Another Broken Egg has a private dining room which is popular for baby and bridal showers, as well as business meetings. The room can seat approximately 30 people.
The weekend crowd is large at the restaurant, but Phillips says he has been working with his staff to serve customers as efficiently as possible while still allowing people to enjoy their experience.
“I want them to have an experience, and I don’t want them to feel like we’re just trying to get them in and get them out,” he said.
Many of the menu items include fresh seafood, which brings another unique aspect to the breakfast offerings.
Another Broken Egg is very family oriented and every child who visits receives a balloon.
“I intend for it to be family-oriented with this French country feel,” Phillips said.
