In its first campus-close location, Broken Yolk Café is set to offer San Diego State University students a unique experience. Known for large, shareable portions of scratch cooking, the hometown breakfast and lunch favorite will offer students both traditional and grab-and-go style food in a modified fast casual format when it opens in the new South Campus Plaza development at the corner of College Avenue and Montezuma Road near SDSU.

"Campus and campus-adjacent locations call for a few tweaks," said Broken Yolk Café’s Vice President of Franchise Development Valerie McCartney. "Guests will recognize many of the popular entrees they know and love from our other restaurants, but we're adding a stable of hand-held, easy-to-eat-while-running-to-class items. Fast casual is a popular format with students and non-students alike. Characterized by counter ordering in lieu of wait staff, guests are served quickly, allowing them to enjoy a high quality meal and get back to class or work.”
Also an interesting variation from Broken Yolk's existing restaurants, the SDSU location will stay open later.

"We already know that there are plenty of people who love to eat breakfast for dinner," said McCartney.  "We'll be serving some additional dinner snacks and entrees not found at other Broken Yolk restaurants, so it'll make the SDSU location something special."
South Campus Plaza is a mixed use development that will include housing for more than 600 students, along with retail uses designed to serve both the campus and its surrounding neighborhoods, creating a pedestrian friendly destination for shopping, dining and living. Students will move in to their new South Campus Plaza residence halls beginning in the spring 2017 semester.

Tenants joining Broken Yolk Café in South Campus Plaza include Eureka! and Trader Joe’s. Negotiations with other future tenants are ongoing.
