Another Broken Egg is a popular breakfast and brunch spot in Mountain Brook Village. Breaking eggs may be their specialty, but they also serve a tasty lunch fare——entrée portion salads, hearty sandwiches and the soup of the day.
I am seated at a patio table—under the Japanese Maple tree. Looking over the menu, several multicultural salad offerings tempt, including Oriental Chicken Salad and Grilled Tuna Wasabi. But this fall day calls for a traditional hot soup and sandwich. I opt for the soup of the day, Chicken Noodle and the Ruben Supreme. The soup arrives first and is a comforting mix of noodles, white meat, carrots and celery. And the Ruben sandwich arrives afterwards piping hot, sliced in half on the diagonal, served with a side of country potatoes and a pickle slice. Warm toasty slices of rye bread are melded to the flavorful corned beef and tart, crunchy sauerkraut with hot, melted Swiss. A touch of Thousand Island adds a hint of sweetness. And bites of crisp potato round out this comforting meal.
