Another Broken Egg Café Opening March 30
By Amos Maki
A Southern-inspired restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and a weekend brunch is finally opening in East Memphis at the end of this month.
Gouras Restaurant Group is holding the grand opening for Another Broken Egg Café March 30. The 3,000-square-foot restaurant is opening at Loeb Properties’ Park Place Centre, 6063 Park Ave., and will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. seven days a week. It will seat 88 indoors, with an additional 48 seats on the outdoor patio.
The menu includes six varieties of eggs benedict, 11 gourmet omelet choices, a signature Bananas Foster over Belgian waffles, French toast, sweet potato pancakes and biscuit beignets as well as handcrafted burgers, specialty sandwiches and salads.
Menu prices will range from $8 to $15. Another Broken Egg’s health fare includes granola, fruit and quinoa, gluten-free pancakes, the “skinny omelet,” oats and salmon, among other things.
A sneak preview will be held March 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. There’s no charge for the public to attend; call 901-729-7020 for reservations, which are required.
Another Broken Egg started in Miramar Beach, Fla., and currently has locations in 12 states. Gouras Restaurant Group signed a lease for the Park Place locale in February 2014. It will be the second Another Broken Egg owned by brothers Chris Gouras and George Gouras, following their restaurant in Ridgeland, Miss.
They plan to open three more locations in the metropolitan Memphis area over the next three years.
Another major retail development could be headed for Southaven, Miss.
On Friday, Tanger Factory Outlets Centers Inc. and Poag Shopping Centers will break ground on a 310,000-square-foot upscale outlet mall at Interstate 55 and Church Road in Southaven. The outlet mall will sit on nearly 33 acres owned by businessman William Adair and will include more than 50 stores once complete.
According to a nearby sign, Chattanooga-based Hutton Co. has its eyes set on a roughly 50-acre site for a major retail development. Hutton specializes in development, real estate, build-to-suit development and construction. Hutton did not return repeated messages seeking comment. Danny Buring, partner with The Shopping Center Group LLC, whose name appeared alongside Hutton’s on the sign, referred all questions to Hutton.
In other news, Loeb Properties is reporting two lease renewals.
C-Spire Wireless inked a lease for 2,298 square feet in suites 101 and 102 at Belvedere Collection, 1680 Union Ave. in Midtown.
Complete Computer renewed its lease for 1,240 square feet at 2445 Poplar Ave., suite 10, inside the University Center complex at Poplar Avenue and Highland Street near the University of Memphis.
And a new McDonald’s is going up near the University of Memphis.
The fast food giant recently closed on the purchase of several properties on the southeast corner of Highland Street and Southern Avenue for $580,000 and has begun prep work on the site, which was formerly home to Highland strip staples Whatever and Super Submarine Shop.
The 5,353-square-foot restaurant building will be situated along the sidewalk on Highland, and a looping drive-thru proposed in earlier versions was replaced with one that runs behind the building.
Earlier designs of the proposed restaurant ignited strong opposition from neighbors because they did not comply with a special zoning overlay.
