In 2008, brothers Chris and Kevin Purucker took over a just-closed restaurant and turned it into a neighborhood favorite. Open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week, The Cracked Egg serves breakfast till closing. Regulars swear by the Homemade Apple Fritters (just $3.99 for four), along with about eight different omelets and such griddle favorites as pancakes and Belgian waffles. House specialties include Eggs Chesapeake (two poached eggs on an English muffin, topped with crab cake and Hollandaise sauce and served with hash browns, home fries, or grits). Taking advantage of all that great Florida citrus, the mimosas are made with freshly squeezed OJ.
