A little taste of Louisiana will be arriving in the Town of Lexington next year, when Another Broken Egg Cafe opens its doors at 929 N. Lake Dr. in front of Regal Northlake Village.
Senior general manager Bruce Montondo said the restaurant's popularity has been growing at its Devine Street store in Columbia. They decided the next Midlands location should be built in Lexington based on customer feedback and the need in the area, according to Montondo.
"The amount of business from that side of town expressed the need for a good brunch and lunch spot in Lexington," he said. "We've been growing quickly and we think Columbia and the surrounding areas are a great market, and we've been really well-received in the area."
Another Broken Egg originated out of Louisiana, and menu items include dishes with crawfish, crab meat, and shrimp. Montondo said one of the most popular dishes is the lobster and brie omelette. In addition to Louisiana flavors, some dishes are more California-style.
"We also have California flavors melded in there as well. The Monterrey omelette has guajillo and avocado on it. It's just some things you don't see in any other places," said Montondo.
Other menu options include cinnamon roll french toast, crab cake Benedict, huevos rancheros, and lunch items like the Southern chicken sandwich, bacon burger and the Southwest chop salad.
Customers looking for something a little stronger than juice to accompany their meal will be glad to know Another Broken Egg in Lexington will have a full bar.
"Probably 90% of what we do is bloody marys and mimosas," laughed Montondo. Those looking for something more exciting than the traditional orange juice and champagne can try other flavors like strawberry blueberry-lemon, and blackberry.
The restaurant's targeted opening date is late April to early May of 2022. Although Montondo said he can't confirm all the details yet like how many tables it will hold, he does know he'll be employing between 40 to 50 people.
Another Broken Egg in Lexington will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., seven days a week. Additional information can be found at anotherbrokenegg.com, and the Devine Street location's Facebook page. Montondo said a Facebook page for the Lexington store will be created soon.
