DC Cafe Donuts

Copy Link

If New York City has the bacon egg and cheese sandwich, served on a squishy roll, then LA’s staple corner doughnut spots have the croissant breakfast sandwich. Big, buttery, flaky, and delicious, these inexpensive morning pick-me-ups make for perfect on-the-go AM dining.

Wild Oak Cafe

Copy Link

Wild Oak Cafe’s breakfast sandwich is absolutely stacked thanks to lots of creamy scrambled egg, fistfuls of bacon, cheddar cheese, and a thick swipe of mayonnaise.

Muffin Can Stop Us

Copy Link

The concept at Muffin Can Stop Us couldn’t be more simple; just put a bunch of eggs (mostly sunny side up) and different ingredients between an English muffin bun, and call it a day. From the classic with bacon, egg, and cheese, to shredded barbacoa or sliced turkey, this is the one-stop breakfast sandwich shop Glendale always needed.

Belle's Bagels

Copy Link

It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to the breakfast sandwiches at Highland Park’s Belle’s Bagels. All three varieties are constructed on one of the shop’s signature bagels in flavors like salt, everything, and poppyseed. Carefully smooshed in between are egg, cheese, and avocado or bacon.

Popping Yolk Cafe

Popping Yolk is a hit in Alhambra, thanks to overstuffed croissant breakfast sandwiches and a slew of other Instagram-worthy dishes.

Calabama

It’s hard to think of a more of-the-moment breakfast sandwich in Los Angeles than the one at Calabama. The East Hollywood pop-up operates as a bucket drop, with customers ordering the sandwich in advance (it’s the only thing they sell) before showing up and fishing their breakfast out of a bright red pail.

All Day Baby

Biscuit sandwiches are definitely the move at All Day Baby, the restaurant turned takeaway window in Silver Lake. Loaded with eggs and a smear of jam, these are delightfully different, and very delicious.

Zinqué

Copy Link

Zinque has always offered a refined-casual cafe experience across its multiple locations, and that extends to its simple yet effective breakfast sandwich served with basil and prosciutto on an english muffin.

Nic's On Beverly

Copy Link

Vegans (and vegan-occasional eaters) love Nic’s on Beverly for its patio, cocktails, and food, especially during busy weekend brunch when the morning sandwich is available. It comes with meatless egg, sausage, fried potato patty, and plenty of slightly spicy aioli.

Burgers 99

Copy Link

La Brea’s Burgers 99 does a little bit of everything, from simple throwback burgers to a decidedly easy to crush breakfast sandwich, served with American cheese, fried egg, and thick-cut bacon.

Egg Tuck

Copy Link

Egg Tuck has long positioned itself as the spiritual successor to Eggslut in Downtown. With its big, airy brioche buns, soft scrambled eggs, and endless combinations (plus plenty of sauce) this is the place to capture that perfect Instagram breakfast sandwich shot.

Yeastie Boys Bagels

Copy Link

There’s nothing quite like biting into a breakfast sandwich from the Yeastie Boys first thing in the morning. The Game Over with soft scrambled eggs, peppered bacon, and beer cheese and jalapeno spread on a cheddar bagel sets the perfect tone for the day.

AM Smash

Copy Link

The buzz is real at rotating pop-up AM Smash. Stop by the Palms / Sepulveda area for simple streetside breakfast sandos served with seared sausage patties and lots of cheese (when available), or follow along on social media for their next jaunt across the Southland.

Gjelina Take Away

Copy Link

Choose between two very untraditional and super-flavorful breakfast sandwiches at Gjelina Take Away. First up is the turkey egg sandwich featuring a fried sunny side up egg, rapini pesto, and fontina on brioche. And then there’s the GTA egg sandwich with braised kale, melted gruyere, a fried egg, bacon, and hot sauce on an eChenglish muffin. The line can be discouraging, so be prepared to wait especially on weekends.

Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen View Park

Copy Link

Cheddar cheese, bacon, and spicy may set off the Bangin’ breakfast sandwich at Hilltop, now with three locations across greater LA.

Egg N Bird

Copy Link

As the name implies, this simple Maywood shop turns out eggy breakfast sandwiches as well as fried chicken sandwiches — and one sandwich that combines the two for maximum AM dominance.

Rusty Pot Cafe

Copy Link

Inglewood’s laid back Rusty Pot Cafe is a simple, satisfying stop for anyone in the area. The Southern-inspired menu leans into big flavors and great value, like the Overload breakfast sandwich with eggs, bacon, avocado, and more.

Playa Provisions

Copy Link

Beachgoers love Playa Provisions for its all-day menu of seaside staples, from salads and ice cream to a rich breakfast sandwich offered with one very runny egg.

Caps & Corks Liquor - Deli & Grill

Copy Link

From sub sandwiches to breakfast burritos, this laid-back shop in Torrance can do it all. Don’t sleep on the wakey-wakey, a runny egg breakfast sandwich on deeply griddled toast.

Wide Eyes Open Palms

Copy Link

Long Beach’s Wide Eyes Open Palms does breakfast better than just about anyone. Stop by for biscuit sandwiches with lots of egg and love tucked right inside.
