Breakfast Sandwich- Rittenhouse area

jerseytomato Aug 20, 2007 07:19 PM

Any recommendations for a good place (or food truck) to get a breakfast sandwich around Rittenhouse? Anything from basic bread, egg, cheese and meat to something more creative...
Thank you!

    Try Anna's a vendor cart located on the SW corner of 18th and Chestnut St. Always good fresh food.

      I love the breakfast sandwiches at Four Seasons buffet/sandwich shop on Chestnut between 16th and 17th - very cheesy, and they are not skimpy with the egg or meat either!

        I second Anna's cart. My doorman tipped me off to Anna's cart and I have been a loyal customer since. Great ham, egg, and cheese at a great price. Very friendly.

      Rachel's Nosheri on 19th and Sansom. Very good egg sandwiches, nice people and quick service!!

        Just avoid the egg sandwiches at Cosi. Gross, rubbery pre-cooked egg product.

          Also just remembered the name of a diner called Little Pete's. It's on 17th St.

            I've also heard people who swear by the breakfast sandwiches at Ants Pants at 22nd & South. Not quite Rittenhouse, but close.

                  while not in Rittenhouse area, the best breakfast sandwich I've found is at DiBruno's Pronto on 9th street...egg, pancetta, provolone and garlicky greens on a seeded roll...its amazing

              Ants Pants is fantastic, cheap, and has some of the best breakfast sandwiches in town. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

                i love ants pants for brunch-will have to try their sandwiches.
                i tried anna's today and had a simple, tasty egg and cheese sandwich. and the roll was as fresh as you can get- it was delivered to anna while i was ordering!

                  As an aside, Anna's rolls come from Sarcones and when they are fresh, they cant be beat. For lunch try her tuna hoagie on a Scarcones roll. Cant beat the freshness.
