What You'll Get
Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favorite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of brunch and café fare at Another Broken Egg Café in Mountain Brook, a 10-minute drive from downtown. If you redeem your Groupon Monday through Thursday, you will also receive a complimentary non-alcoholic drink.
With dozens of items on it's southern-inspired, Cajun-dusted menu, Another Broken Egg's reputation as a homey, comfortable purveyor of fresh, regional brunch fare is well earned. Its ovo-centric breakfast and brunch offerings include an impressive swath of scramblers, signature Benedicts, omelettes, and shareable sides, such as creamy blackberry grits ($2.99) and petite biscuit beignets ($4.49). Marching down digestive tracts to the sound of a brass band, the Mardi Gras omelette ($9.99) comes stuffed with andouille sausage, crawfish, red peppers, and scallions and is topped with a tomato hollandaise. Specialty brunches include a daily quiche selection ($9.99), classic biscuits and gravy ($8.99), and the Southern Crab Stack plate ($13.99), a grit- and crab-cake Ziggurat festooned with a sauté of shrimp and andouille sausage. Extinguish the breakfast blaze with a Bloody Mary ($6.99), mimosa ($5.99), or a "Gold Cup" of Community coffee ($2.19).
For eaters uncomfortable with the ambiguous Escher-like design of brunch, traditional midday fare is available in the form of burgers, sandwiches, and salads. Ravenous strategists can launch a covert assault on hunger by land and sea with a stealthy Café burger ($9.29), camouflaged by caramelized onions, chopped bacon, sundried tomatoes, basil, and blue cheese, or the hotheaded Cajun tuna sandwich ($11.29).
