I have a new favorite at Broken Yolk Café! Up until last week, I would have said the BYC-Favorite Tiki Toast was my go-to order when I dine there for breakfast, but a new dish now tops my list. I recently tried one of their new menu items and I am hooked – Cinna-cakes. These tasty cinnamon roll-flavored pancakes topped with icing are heaven!

I think these tasty cakes might be the perfect way to start my Mother’s Day at their special Mother’s Day Brunch at both locations on Sunday, May 12th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. where every woman 21 years and older will receive two free Mimosas. The brunch will be set up in style featuring a carving station, omelet bar, fresh fruit and juices, a menudo station, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, all kinds of yummy waffles, churro donuts, cakes, and so much more. Mimosa flights with fresh-fruit juice assortments of grapefruit, lemonade, pomegranate, and orange juice will be on sale for $7.00. Prices are $21.95 for adults and $11.95 for children 12 and under.
BYC Owners Jim and Brandi Bailey are excited to celebrate this special day with their customers and their own mothers, who play an important role not only in their lives but at their restaurants. Jim’s mom, Jeanie “Nini” Nugent, along with Brandi’s mom, Brenda “Memaw” Muniozguren, and her grandma, Imogene “Granny” Bebaut, each have their own favorite orders and enjoy spending time together at the restaurant.
Nini has five children and eight grandchildren, and her grandson Josh currently works at BYC West. She usually orders a Greek omelet, but customizes it just a tad. “The employees and customers are like family to us — they are family,” she says.
Memaw has two children and four grandchildren. She also orders up an omelet at the buffet’s omelet station, where she says she “loads it up with anything and everything.”
Granny, who has three children, five grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren, orders the same item so often they call it the “Granny Special.” She likes ham and eggs and one biscuit cut in half with jam on one half and gravy on the other. “Everyone knows when Granny comes in, and they know just what to make for her,” Jim says.
BYC is a national franchise with headquarters in San Diego, but the Baileys succeed in making the restaurant have a hometown feel and creating personal relationships with their customers. In fact, Memaw and Nini personally handwrite thank you notes to customers who fill out comment cards at their restaurants.
In addition to special-day buffets, BYC offers an extensive catering menu and a banquet room that seats 50 people and can be reserved for parties and meetings. They will also open up the patio, which seats 100, for private parties. You can check out BYC’s catchy new jingle by Jim Shaw on KUZZ.
And don’t forget about Father’s Day. BYC has something for that, too. Celebrate the dads in your life at Broken Yolk’s Father’s Day Brunch on June 16th with two Crown Royal Maple Finished Whiskey breakfast shots for each man included in the price of the meal.
