Broken Yolk Café To Open San Diego State University Campus Location

May 30, 2017

San Diego-born budding breakfast empire Broken Yolk Café, which currently has 20 locations across the United States, is in the process of opening a 3,728 square-foot eatery on the San Diego State University Campus.

The first Broken Yolk Café opened in 1979 in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood and became more widely known after a 2009 feature on The Travel Channel’s Man vs Food, which resulted in owners moving toward a franchise expansion model. The hometown breakfast-centric line of restaurants now has 20 locations in California, Florida, Arizona and Illinois with 10 outposts just in San Diego County.

The Broken Yolk Café is joining fellow tenants Eureka!, Which Which Superior Sandwiches, Epic Wings N' Things, and recently-opened Trader Joe’s in the new South Campus Plaza at SDSU, which houses nearly 600 students as of this year. In addition to a menu of traditional breakfast fare, the SDSU location will have counter service, an expansive outdoor patio, and add a lineup of hand-held menu items to make dining on the go easier for students running to class. The eatery will also be open later than other locations and add dinner appetizers and entrees, as well as offer beer & wine options. Broken Yolk SDSU should open at 5120 College Avenue, Suite 121 by this summer for the start of the Fall semester.

The next Broken Yolk branch will open during the second week of June (anticipated to be June 11) at 8111 Mira Mesa Boulevard in San Diego's Mira Mesa neighborhood. An outpost is also in the works for Plaza Bonita in South County. For more information, visit
