Good breakfast sandwiches in DC?

This is an item I get regular cravings for -- you know, the basic egg/cheese/bacon on English muffin/bagel etc. with its many variations. I was just wondering where I might find some good ones around town that I don't know about yet. So far, my favorite one is at So's Your Mom in Adams Morgan. I had one today at Booeymonger's in Friendship Heights. It was edible, but the bagel wasn't very good and it had American cheese, which isn't ideal.

Any other suggestions for Metro-accessible places I may have missed?

  1. WPH I'm surprised at you. doesn't the scrapple/egg/cheese on whatever option rate high? if you don't have an aversion to scrapple, then get the heck over to capitol hill.

      Scrapple isn't my thing -- but where are you talking about on capitol hill?

      1. re: woodleyparkhound

        yeah it's not for everyone, me, maybe only once or twice a year. just seems like every likely place on the hill has some version (except Pain Q of course). specifically thinking of the Market Lunch "Brick" (you can substitute)

    2. The breakfast sandwich at Mario's in Arlington is served on Texas toast, is a bargain, and they don't skimp on the bacon.

        If you are going to Arlington, Earl's sandwiches is metro accessible and has a great breakfast sandwich.

        I need to try the one at Northside Social... haven't had it yet, but I bet it would be good.

          The Northside Social sandwich is good. you can get a sausage patty on english muffin (their own). or you can get the bacon on their stout bread. they both have a poached egg (not scrambled and them folded onto itself) and frisee. I don't know if they put something on the frisee or if that's just how it tastes but it has a real citrus taste to it. Both are good options. both only $4 which I think is a good deal since the bacon and sausage are both made/cured/etc. over at Liberty Tavern. I think the bacon is better than the sausage

      2. The Blue & White Carryout in Old Town is three blocks from Braddock Road: the breakfast sandwiches are simple, cheap, and delicious. The line of blue/white collar customers can attest to this. Their fried chicken (and chicken livers) are coronary-riffic.

          CIty Deli on Bladensburg Road NE has a killer pastrami and egg sandwich.

        2. I really like the breakfast sandwiches at Tivoli. I often get one on my way to work in the mornings. They have 2 locations. One above the Ballston metro and another in Rosslyn.

            tivoli -- has breakfast sandwiches? whoa boy it's been a long time since i was there, but it used to be a fine dining place (over the rosslyn metro). now i've gotta look it up to check out the transformation.

            ok, no website that i could quickly find. what am i missing? is it still a "restaurant" or only a deli-type spot?

            1. re: alkapal

              Tivoli has two deli locations: one at Ballston metro and the other ground floor at Rosslyn.

              1. re: Steve

                Steve, you mean at the Rosslyn Metro station itself? I'm not very familiar with this station and can't picture where it would be.

                1. re: woodleyparkhound

                  Tivoli deli is directly to the left as you enter the station from Moore St, inside the mini-mall.

          2. Brooklyn Bagelry in Courthouse...whatever bacon they use on their bagels is divine, and they're pretty generous with it too.
