Another Broken Egg Cafe Hatches in Buckhead

Another Broken Egg Cafe Hatches in Buckhead

The first Georgia franchise for Another Broken Egg Cafe recently opened in the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center, which is located in the 2300 block of Peachtree Road. With over 140 different menu items, the restaurant has quickly become Atlanta's newest hotspot for breakfast, lunch or brunch. It is open daily from 7 a.m.-2 p.m.

Many Atlantans who vacation in Destin, Fla., are familiar with the restaurant concept. That's one of the reasons owners Dana and Mignon Percival, along with their children, Drew and Sara, decided to set up shop in Atlanta.

Despite the economy, many people still eat out. According to the National Restaurant Association, Americans spend about 49 percent of their food dollar on food away from home.

A "Living Social" survey found that the average American eats 4.8 meals per week in restaurants. The most popular meal is lunch.

Atlantans also are famous for eating out.
