Egg salad sandwich at Olive & Thyme
| 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. Thankfully, the deli case classic can be found in a few restaurants around town, both gussied up with tasty accouterments and pared down in its most classic form.

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:

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Euro Pane Bakery

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.

Division 3

Copy Link

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.

Wexler's Deli

Copy Link

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.

Cassell's Hamburgers

Copy Link

Something just feels right about eating Cassell’s egg salad in its revamped retro digs. You can even get your egg salad spiked with a little house poached albacore if your’e feeling fancy.

Olive & Thyme

Copy Link

Burbank’s cute little market and café also offers an open faced version of the lunch box staple made with dill and onion that is served on olive bread. The restaurant blends soft and hard boiled eggs to add extra creaminess without relying too heavily on mayo.

Eggslut

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.

The Apple Pan

Copy Link

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.

Clementine Beverly Hills

Copy Link

This quaint counter-service café elevates its egg salad by adding a touch of red onion and topping it with watercress and cornichons.

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.

John's Garden

Copy Link

This longtime Malibu staple right off the Country Mart offers nice outdoor seating to enjoy a classic lettuce, tomato, and mayo-based sandwich.

The Fountain Coffee Room

Copy Link

This landmark coffee shop in the Beverly Hills Hotel offers an egg salad sandwich that will make you feel like you’re back in the Hollywood Golden Age. That is if you’re willing to chock up 15 bucks.

Soda Pop's

Copy Link

This deli has been a Beverly Grove staple for its sandwiches and wraps that are served with housemade chips. The egg salad sandwich is classically prepared with bib lettuce on sourdough.

Judi's Deli

Copy Link

It can often be challenging to find a great lunch in Beverly Hills that doesn’t completely break the bank. Thankfully Judi’s Deli is still alive and kicking with its egg salad sandwich that is served on rye with lettuce and tomato.

Nick's Coffee Shop & Diner

Copy Link

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.
