Another Broken Egg is a popular breakfast and brunch spot in Mountain Brook Village. Breaking eggs may be their specialty, but they also serve a tasty lunch fare—entrée portion salads, hearty sandwiches and the soup of the day.

I am seated at a patio table under the Japanese maple tree. As I look over the menu, several multicultural salad offerings tempt me, including Oriental Chicken Salad and Grilled Tuna Wasabi. But this fall day calls for a traditional hot soup and sandwich. I opt for the soup of the day, Chicken Noodle, and the Reuben Supreme. The soup arrives first and is a comforting mix of noodles, white meat, carrots and celery. The Reuben sandwich arrives afterwards steaming hot, sliced on the diagonal, served with a side of country potatoes and a pickle slice. Warm, toasty slices of rye bread are melded to the flavorful corned beef and tart, crunchy sauerkraut with hot, melted Swiss. A touch of Thousand Island dressing adds a hint of sweetness. Bites of crisp potato round out this comforting meal.
