Another Broken Egg Café is coming soon to Auburn and opening its location near the Bent Creek exit for Highway 85.
The new location is scheduled to open at 2111 Bent Creek Road in early May.
Ronald and Teresa Schier, the restaurant owners, said they decided to open up an affordable and high-quality brunch and catering restaurant in Auburn because it is their favorite city in which they have lived.

“Best breakfast, brunch (and) lunch menu in the south,” Ronald said.
The restaurant will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., seven days a week, and applications for employment will open some time in late March or April.
“The restaurant is a result of a lot of prayer and the sincere desire to give back to the community I love so much,” Ronald said. “We wanted to be a part of a franchise where Auburn-Opelika residents can experience a “stay-cation” type of visit with amazing food and an extended family type of staff.”

Ronald and Teresa plan to open two more cafés in Eastern Alabama within the next few years.
Ronald said as the son of a small business owner, he is trying to honor his father’s memory by following in his footsteps. He said he and his wife feel blessed to be mentored by several people in the business who can advise them and use as guidance.
Ronald said he and his wife have felt overwhelmed by the tremendous support and enthusiasm received from the community. He said their greatest challenge ahead of them right now is time.
Ronald said they are eager to open, but they have had to learn to be patient with this sometimes long process involving so many steps that must be done before opening day.
