Their ads say “have you tried our diner yet?”. And yes, we have tried the Broken Egg Diner in Sebring, Florida.
Open for breakfast and lunch only, we decided to stop in recently (January 2019) for brunch. The Broken Egg is located in the walk-through at the north end of the Sebring Square. That’s on the east side of highway 27 at the Sebring Parkway.
Not much of a sign on the diner, but enough to find it, and we were pleasantly surprised to see that it was quite busy. That’s often a good sign, I thought, as we swung open the door and were greeted immediately as we walked in.
It’s a breakfast place, so one would expect to have an excellent, what I like to say is a “greasy spoon” type of breakfast, with piping hot coffee and eggs and stuff served up fast and hot.
Seated fast? Yup.
Served immediately? Yup.
All good so far.
Coffee appeared, and it was piping hot, but gosh, I’m not quite sure what kind of coffee it was. It had an odd overtone to it, an off taste. I drown my coffee with cream, the boss takes it black, and after one sip, that’s it, it wasn’t being drunk black for sure. Odd. A diner’s rep is often made by the quality of their coffee.
It was brunch time so hunger had sure set in, so I ordered the 3 egg cheese omelette with hash browns which were, I was assured, made on the premises.
Food arrived in fairly short order, and the eggs were hot if the hash browns were not.
I sliced into a very nice looking omelette, saw the cheese ooze out the end as I cut it with the fork, and yup it was good! However, as I sliced the egg dish up the cheese disappeared from the omelette center, and it was only all egg again until I reached the other end to find another, small, dollop of cheese? Really! Rather cheap of them, I thought.
Maybe other dishes were better, the two we had weren’t the greatest, and oh my, breakfast is supposed to be their specialty.
Priced reasonably, questionable food quality and quantity, I’ll leave it up to you whether taking in the Broken Egg Diner in Sebring is for you.
For us, nah, probably not again for a year or so, and if they are still in business then, we may give them another go.
