Broken Yolk Sandwich at Cafe Patachou (#Super46)

Is there anything better than a perfectly cooked fried egg nestled between two slices of bread? You know what I’m talking about, right? The kind that when you bite into it, a runny yolk begins to dribble out the sides of the sandwich and onto the plate, just waiting to be scooped up by the bread. This simple delight definitely tops my list of favorite breakfast foods.

In Indianapolis, look no further than Cafe Patachou for this king of breakfast sandwiches. In fact, at Patachou, a fried egg sandwich isn’t simply an item on the menu. The Broken Yolk Sandwich is an entire category here, complete with toppings like cheddar cheese, Indiana bacon, avocado, ham and salmon.

The Broken Yolk Sandwich comes with fruit or field greens as a side, but any lover of breakfast foods will tell you that it’s always best to combine savory and sweet. So I highly recommend ordering up some of Cafe Patachou’s famous cinnamon toast to go along with your sandwich. The 1/2 inch crust of cinnamon/sugar goodness on the bread will be almost as memorable as your sandwich.

You’ll find the Broken Yolk Sandwich at the following Cafe Patachou and Petite Chou locations around Central Indiana:

  • Capitol and Washington Streets in downtown Indianapolis
  • The Indianapolis International Airport in Civic Plaza
  • 49th and Pennsylvania Streets on the northside of Indianapolis
  • 823 Westfield Boulevard in Indianapolis
  • 8697 River Crossing Boulevard near the Fashion Mall
  • 4733 126th Street in Carmel
  • 14390 Clay Terrace Boulevard in Carmel
