UPDATE: Another Broken Egg Cafe to open in Mountain Brook Village

Mountain Brook, Alabama

Dram Whiskey Bar and Avo (previous posts) won’t be the only new kids on the block in Mountain Brook Village for long. This morning I noticed a bit of plywood (as the guys at Eater would say) on a walk through Mountain Brook Village: King’s House Antiques’ former residence will be taken by Florida-based franchise Another Broken Egg Cafe. Menu looks diner-casual with a predictable abundance of eggs, though hamburgers and quesadillas get some space as well. The only signage notes that they will serve breakfast, brunch, and lunch. This could be a welcome addition to the village where lunch, and especially breakfast, options are few: Gilchrist, Browdy’s, Olexa’s, Davenport’s Pizza, and Sneaky Pete’s.

The interior is quite demolished. Once I have my camera, I’d like to go back and get a shot of the pile o’ ceiling fans. The cell phone was not going to do it justice.

Details are few at this point, Wade, but I’ve put in a call with the company to find out when they’re opening, whether the location will have any leeway to use local products, and if they will have any local menu options. I’ll update as I know more.

[Update 1: NBC 13’s blog wrote this post about Another Broken Egg back in October.]

[Update 2: According to owner Miller Phillips, the restaurant is slated to open September 2009.]

    Ha! Thanks — now that’s service.

    Drop ’em a note or a biz card and hopefully they’ll send you a media release and an invite to see the place before they open.

    Hi Jeff. Thanks for the comment, but I am not connected to the cafe in any way. You might be able to get in touch with a hiring manager through their web site. ds

    Another Broken Egg opens tomorow! October 12, 2009 at 6:30 a.m. The interior looks unbelieveable!

    Highly disappointing. The food was so so, the coffee bland, but the worst thing was there was not a single smile among the staff-not one!
