    On Man v Food, Adam Richman takes on the Broken Yolk Special, a 6-lb. breakfast served on a 15-inch pizza pan - a 12-egg omelet with chili plus a mountain of home fries and 2 biscuits.

    A great breakfast place while in San Diego. This staff handles a busy clientele with order and efficiency. The food is good the coffee is hot. The $ are a little steep but expected for the Gaslamp

    Delicious food! Limited outdoor sidewalk seating available; wonderful if you can snag it! During Comic-Con, they switch to a more limited, higher-priced menu. Go Wednesday before con starts.

    Quick and friendly service. They are used to conventioneers. Let them know to divide checks. You will be fed and able to leave in good time for meetings.

    I had the French Toast & one Egg. I thought of have room for fruit but I underestimated the meal of choice.

    The California Burrito is the bomb! If you got an infant that rests on a car seat, request to be seated under the "Big Ass Fan." Your child will love it and remain calm throughout your entire meal.

    The portions are huge and it gets busy on Sunday mornings for brunch. Well, it's probably because everyone is recovering from a busy night of partying.

    Better places to choose from. Had an omelet and it was full of liquid, and ingredients were just piled in and not equally dispersed. Biscuits and gravy were sweet and had no meat.

    Very popular, bit of a wait, and overall not as good as we were expecting. Our party of 7 was in agreement that we were underwhelmed with the flavours. Not bad, but didn't live up to the hype.
