The Bro’kin Yolk is another great spot in Calgary for your breakfast and brunch needs!
The Brokin’ Yolk is owned by two brothers (hence, “Bro”), with the goal of making you feel part of the family while you eat there (hence, “kin”). Eggs are their featured item and key ingredient in the menu, hence “yolk.”
We came here on a holiday (of all days), so the restaurant was actually quite packed. We called prior to getting seated, but the wait-list was still quite long (45 minute wait for a table of five). I highly recommend calling before coming! By the time we got there, they had a table open for us. 🙂
This is a brunch spot, so the typical items are on the menu: waffles, French toast, eggs Benedict, frittata, bacon, meat and sandwiches. The owners are Filipino, and you can see a few items on the menu inspired by their Filipino upbringing.
While the main feature on the menu are breakfast/brunch items with eggs, they did have a few vegan dishes for the vegans. I ordered the vegan hash, which contained quinoa, tofu & veggies on top of potato hash and served with guac & salsa.
The dish was good, but I couldn’t help but think that I could make this exact same dish at home with more flavour and bigger serving size. 😕
The biggest drawback is definitely the location. I live in the NE, so getting here took ~30 minutes. Driving is a definite requirement to get here—unless you’re willing to take an hour to get here by bus.
The Brokin’ Yolk is a great place for brunch on the weekends, or even to catch up with friends! If you can manage to go here, delicious food abounds.
Recommended? Yes, if you can drive over!
COST: Moderate. While definitely not the cheapest place to eat, The Bro’kin Yolk is still affordable for a decent meal. My vegan hash was $16, and I thought that a bit much for the portion size. The chicken & waffles are ~$16, along with the waffles.
TASTE: Good. The vegan hash was good, but I thought that I could’ve made the same vegan meal at home at a cheaper price (I eat a lot). My friends and sister also enjoyed their chicken & waffles, waffles and hash.
ACCESSIBILITY: Difficult. The Bro’kin Yolk is located close to the edge of the city, at Evanston in NW. Driving would the best way to get here, and there are tons of parking nearby (though it’s busy at peak times). Buses d0 service the area, but it’s lengthy and unreliable.
ATMOSPHERE: Nice. The restaurant can be busy and packed, especially during the weekends and holidays (there might be a waitlist). There are a lot of seating options, from booths to bar-side to small tables. Great for casual eats or family/friends brunches.
SERVICE: 8/10. The service is good, and our server attended to us diligently. My coffee was refilled when it was empty. 😀
