Breakfast Sandwich in Silver Lake/Los Feliz ?

thoughtfulpose Jan 1, 2011 09:04 PM

Hi gang... I've recently moved into the neighborhood (north Silver Lake, on the border of Los Feliz) and I'm looking for a place nearby to get breakfast TO GO on the weekends... not crazy espresso drinks, not brunch, not crazy packed, not expensive, not a fast food joint... just a place to drop in, get a good egg-and-cheese sandwich and a good cup of coffee, and go.

Any suggestions?

    breakfast sandwich on brioche at square one dining is the best i've had in the area. see no reason why you couldn't order one to go and skip the weekend crowd, but parking can be tricky around there,

    for some reason, the ubiquitous $3 bacon, egg and cheese available in every deli in NYC is damn near impossible to find in this city.

      Try Starbucks. (I’m not being facetious, but I’m also not much of a fan of cheap breakfast sandwiches, and SB’s are in your price range.)

      And I agree about Square One.

        believe me, i've tried starbucks' microwaved breakfast offerings. as sketchy as your average NYC deli might be, at least their sandwiches were made to order 99% of the time.

        i am generally a big fan of tropical's sandwiches, has anyone tried ordering a breakfast sandwich on their sandwich roll rather than a croissant?

      Fred 62 at Vermont and Russell has four varieties of breakfast sandwiches, including one with smoked salmon and another with goat cheese.

      As with the Mustard Seed it can get crowded on weekends, but you can call in to-go orders.

        I love the egg croissant sandwich at Mornings Nights on Griffith Park Blvd. On Saturday mornings there's a farmer's market right in front of it, so parking gets a little hairy after 10am. On Sundays and weekdays, it's really easy to get in and out.

          The BEST breakfast sandwich I've ever had, by a mile, is served at the Mustard Seed Cafe on Hillhurst. Place does get busy, but since you're getting it to go, that shouldn't matter much (call ahead to order, in your case).
