Looking for great Breakfast Sandwich

mdpilam Jan 24, 2009 12:00 PM

Hi, I am in search of a great breakfast sandwich, which in my mind is bacon (I like it slightly crispy), eggs (not too picky here, scrambled, fried or omletted (is that a word?)) and cheese (american usually). I love it on a flaky biscuit or croissant, but english muffin and other bread could work too. I did some searching and found that Joans on Third and Tommy's are supposed to be good, and was wondering if anyone had some other suggestions. Proximity to West LA is preferred. I'm a little nervous to say this, but it is the one thing that I will eat at McDonald's (though I haven't in over 2 yrs) is their bacon, egg and cheese biscuit!

    Clementine in West LA near Century City has an excellent breakfast sandwich although it has ham rather than bacon.

      Fred 62 in Los Feliz has the New Amsterdam :
      bacon, omletted egg, hash browns on a hamburger type bun. I always add cheddar cheese.

        Tommy's is great, be sure to order on the english muffin and plain, sausage, egg, cheese. It comes with chili, onion, tomato and pickle if you are not specific. 26 Beach has a great breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, cheese, lettuce tomato and mayo on challa, it is a serious sandwich and comes with fries.

          Your West L.A. proximity requirement may hurt rather than help, but trust me, Square One on Fountain just west of Vermont will give you your breakfast sandwich and serve it up with organic/local ingredients to boot. They've got both a pressed egg sandwich and a breakfast sandwich that seems to meet your aforementioned requirements. Their bacon, I can assure you, will not dissapoint.

              Mustard Seed Cafe on Hillhurst makes the breakfast sandwich to end all breakfast sandwiches. No, it's not very West LA convenient, but it's hands-down the best I've ever had.

              Eggs, of course (I guess "omletted"). Really good, thick bacon; cheddar cheese; leaf (not iceberg) lettuce; tomato that's somehow always decent even in the dead of winter; avocado; and a basil mayo. Served on an over-sized English muffin. By far greater than the sum of its parts, I suspect that the mayo is the key element that brings it all together.
