Egg and Cheese Sandwich

So I'm looking for a place that does a good (basic) Egg and Cheese sandwich that has parking. This is key.

Any suggestions? My person fav is Jim's Deli, but its not a place a can get to before work.

  1. Where do you work?

    My favorite bacon, egg and cheese sandwich is from Billy's Coffee Shop on Berkeley Street in the South End. There are meters out front.

      I work in Woburn, live in Charlestown. Never heard of Billy's. I will try it out.

      1. i double park in front of the appleton bakery in the south end at least once a week to grab a coffee. best egg sammiches ever!

        1. Ah yes, a great breakfast sandwich. I love them...esp as I'm not a pancakes girl.

          Eagle Deli (Cleveland Circle, Brighton)
          Jakes (Malrborough center)
          Zaftigs (Coolidge Corner, Brookline-- but go before 9:30am on weekends)
          Moogie's (Brighton)

            My first thought was moogies in brighton

          2. Well, I mean you can get a bacon egg and cheese breakfast sub from Alexander's on Main Street in Medford for under $2 (?!) and parking is not exactly a problem...

              Darwins outside of Harvard Sq in Cambridge makes some nice breakfast sandwiches, but for a weekend, not before work. It takes them a while to make anything...

                Ditto to Darwin's but the parking is iffy. Their sandwiches are pricey but big, and they use good ingredients. But yeah- not sure about the parking bit.

                I'm a big fan of the sausage egg and cheese breakfast sub at Alexander's on Main Street in Medford. It's only $2 and freshly made. I also like their bacon egg and cheese breakfast sub.

                Alexander's Convenient Food
                277 Main Street, Medford, MA 02155

              3. My favorite deli in Cincinnati had an egg sandwich that was simply fresh hardboiled eggs sliced thin, stacked high on toast, topped with salt & pepper, mayo, onion, and tomato.

                Sounds so simple, but I haven't found its equal anywhere around here.

                For egg & cheese, my local fave is Good Food Cafe in Cambridge, but parking is on-street only.
