Sandwiches – They’re What’s For Breakfast

Sandwiches – They’re What’s For Breakfast

Aug 15, 2016

breakfast sandwiches on biscuits with an egg on top

What has a runny egg, meat (sometimes veggies) and cheese sandwiched between two buttery biscuits that’s sure to get ya goin’ in the morning?

That’s right, we’re talkin’ breakfast (or brunch) sandwiches – the most productive cure to any hangover, kick-starter to any work day, and freakin’ awesome on-the-go breakfast to eat with your hands during your morning commute.

If you’re in Chicago, these breakfast sammies are a great cure to your Lollapalooza hangover but no worries, West Coast, we’ve got you covered too. Here are some of our favorite breakfast sandwiches you should check out!

M Burger – Thompson Center


hand holding up a breakfast sandwich with an english muffinWhile we wouldn’t say no to a burger in the morning, opt for one of the breakfast sandwiches at M Burger at the Thompson Center! All come on a warm toasted English muffin – Classic Egg and Cheese ($2.99), Bacon, Egg and Cheese (with brown sugar, black pepper bacon!) ($3.49) and Turkey Sausage, Egg and Cheese ($3.99). FYI – Guacamole can be added to any sandwich for an extra $.30.

Wow Bao

Breakfast Buns are also available and include Pork Belly, Egg and Cheese, Spicy Sausage, Egg and Cheese or Spinach, Mushroom, Egg and Cheese ($3.19).

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!

Bub City

Sacred Grounds at Foodlife

Beatrix

Don’t worry West Coast folks – we didn’t forget about you! Wake up and head to M Street Kitchen for their scrambled egg sandwiches – either the Original with choice of ham, bacon, sausage, turkey or avocado with tomato and mayo ($10.99), or the Spicy with choice of ham, bacon, sausage, turkey or avocado with tomato and chipotle mayo ($10.99).
