Breakfast options just got better thanks to Yolk.
Hailing from Chicago, the eclectic restaurant remixes classic breakfast and lunch favorites with their own fun flare. From their four different Benedicts to their breakfast mac & cheese to various French toasts, Yolk is quite literally a breakfast paradise. So, when I discovered that the first South Florida location opened in Boca, I had to stop by.
Blue, orange, yellow, white and grey colors in the decor made for an energetic, cozy vibe. The staff was bustling with smiles, and tables were assorted with happy looking customers. Needless to say, I was ready to eat breakfast way past breakfast time – that’s how good the food looked.
Aesthetics aside, it was time to get to business. After sipping on my very frothy and tasty green tea matcha, I ordered the grilled salmon and poached eggs. Lying on a top of sautéed spinach, my sides were cheesy grits and banana nut bread French toast for a sweet and savory combination. The homemade Hollandaise sauce was velvety but not too rich, enhancing the favors of my meal instead of drenching my food.
The salmon and eggs proved to be hearty and just when I thought it couldn’t taste any better, I added the homemade hot sauce. It was just the right kick to make me consider stealing the bottle (don’t worry, I didn’t). For those who want a less spicy option, Yolk also makes their own habanero sauce.
Although I did some considerable damage to the food, I sadly could not finish the grits. Alas, it was not for lack of flavor, but for lack of room in my stomach. The portion amount was enough to keep me full and smiley, proving that customers get what they pay for.
This will not be my last visit to Yolk, but one of many. I plan on trying a couple of their fresh squeezed juices, a cup of Miami’s Perla coffee made from the barista on site and many of the savory menu items. Let’s just say I’ve been contemplating what I will get for my next meal. And with 20 percent off the first to-go order when placed online or through the Yolk. app, that time may be coming really soon.
