It seems like a short time ago but itâ€™s been since 1994 that the desire to open my very own restaurant came into my busy little mind. It was not something that I had planned nor really desired to do over my lifetime. My midlife â€œclarityâ€ happened one day in my Corporate office, thinking about escaping the 9 to 5, doing something totally different in my 44th year of existence. Of course I had a good pension going on, weekends off, 3 paid weeks of vacation and big holidays at Thanksgiving and Christmas. But there was something missing and it was simply being in charge of my own destiny as I grew older.
The thought started materializing after eating out over several weekends looking for a decent brunch and finding nothing to satisfy my discerning palate. I really longed for the quaint little places found along the Pacific Coast while living in California. After moving back to the Southeast all that could be found was the bland Formica clad, average menu â€œchainsâ€ that just left me full but totally unsatisfied! No ambiance, no creativity in the foods, and just enough service to make a tip barely justifiable.
Always known as a person of detail,I decided to put that to work, and create my own business. Making it a successful one would require many long hours of work, paying attention to the minutia and providing the guests a memorable experience that they wouldnâ€™t forget.
Friends and I drove down to Destin last October... and we arrived hungry. We decided to check out Another Broken Egg and were so happy we did. We started with a pitcher of mimosas and beignets - yum! I had the Floridian omelette which was amazing. My dining companions tried the Mardi Gras Omelette and Eggs Benedict. We were all happy with our choices and look forward to going again this year when we visit Destin.
We absolutely love this restaurant. We have been going here since they were in a tiny little place to the nice, bigger place. We have always made this stop a tradition on our way home from Destin. This is a FANTASTIC breakfast place.
