| Yelp

Egg salad sandwiches are ones of those foods most commonly found in home kitchens. The lunch box staple just isn't that common outside of office building commissaries, and even then, they often can be under seasoned and overly loaded with mayo.

With the help of Eater LA readers, we compiled this handy map of some of the best egg salad sandwiches in town, presented in no particular order:

345 E Colorado Blvd #101
Pasadena, CA 91101
(626) 844-8855
This Pasadena bakery has the most instagrammable version of the lot. The open-faced sando is supple and lighter than you’d expect, and certainly is worthy of a fork and knife.

2. Division 3

3329 Division St
Los Angeles, CA 90065
Glassell Park newcomer Division 3 has become beloved for its biscuit sandwiches, but you don’t want to skip its standard bearing egg salad, either.

4. Eggslut

317 S Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90013
Eggslut celebrates the cold sandwich form of its namesake ingredient by mixing eggs with plenty of chives and honey mustard aioli. The slutty filling is dressed with arugula and comes in that buttery brioche bun that everyone has come to love.

5. The Apple Pan

Los Angeles, CA 90064
(310) 475-3585

While you’ve probably visited The Apple Pan for a good ol’ burger or slice of pie, it is nice to mix it up with its egg salad sandwich that probably hasn’t changed much since the diner opened in 1947.

Simple Things mixes it up by adding sundried tomato spread to its soft boiled egg sandwich made with a soft pretzel roll. Don’t skip the mini pies, either.

Hankering for an egg salad sandwich in Grand Central Market but not down to wait in snaking, hour-long lines? Thankfully Wexler’s offers its Ruskie sandwich made of egg salad and pickles served on a toasted Kaiser roll.

Copy Link
8536 W Pico Blvd

Word has it that Nick’s Coffee Shop makes its egg salad sandwiches fresh to order, which means it’s probably as close to the homemade version as it gets.
