View as Map

Whether you're brunching, powering up on the way to work, or nursing a hangover, a solid egg sandwich is key.

Whatever your preference, here's a guide to the city's best breakfast sandwiches to savor (or wolf down in a hurry) with your morning coffee. Map points are arranged south to north for your geographical convenience.

Geraldine's Counter

Cage-free eggs, colorful mugs, and breakfast all day? Not too shabby. This Columbia City café uses only local vendors when formulating its meals. Get a bacon, egg and arugula sandwich on sour batard Tuesday to Friday until 9 p.m.

Easy Street Records & Cafe

Copy Link

It’s the perfect place to discuss your top five albums over a breakfast sammie, or peruse Woody Guthrie records while you wait. Along with heartier fare, Easy Street has some lighter options like the Runaround Sue, an English muffin sandwich with a single egg, scrambled with sweet peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese.

Grand Central Bakery

Copy Link

After 25 years in Pioneer Square, this Northwest mini-chain is still plating some of the best sandwiches in town, now with a location in Eastlake. The bakery sticks to humane and local ingredients and the results don’t disappoint. Favorites include the fluffy buttermilk biscuit with scrambled egg and house made sausage patty, and the bacon egg bolo.

Cherry Street Coffee House

Next time you stop into this corner coffee staple, consider adding a tomato, basil, egg, and cheese breakfast bagel to your espresso order. You won’t be sorry. Cherry Street also serves egg pita wraps if you're looking for something on the lighter side.

The Crumpet Shop

Along with sweet varieties topped with walnuts, honey, and ricotta, The Crumpet Shop serves great savory versions of its classic British cake. The ham, cheese, and egg crumpet is so comforting it feels like your mouth just crawled back into bed.

Seatown Seabar & Rotisserie

Copy Link

If you have guests in town, let them gorge on Seatown’s fried egg sandwich for brunch, served with avocado, Beecher’s jack, and a heap of Dungeness crab. Everyone deserves to do this at least once.

Biscuit Bitch

Copy Link

Egg sluts are welcome at Biscuit Bitch, where “Trailer Park to Table” fare abounds. The basic Bitchwich has an egg over hard, cheese, house Bitchy Sauce, and choice of sausage, Spam, or bacon. Tip: If the line’s too long, consider the restaurant's new Belltown location.

Café Presse

Copy Link

Keep it simple with French pastries and dishes at Café Presse, the second collaboration of Le Pichet owners Jim Drohman and Joanne Herron. The cafe doles out the classic fried egg-topped ham and cheese sandwich, the Croque Madame, dripping with goodness, until 1:30am daily.

Skillet

Copy Link

This comfort food trailer-turned-diner features creative, hearty sandwiches like The Chub, with bacon jam, American and brie, egg, bacon, jalapeno aioli, greens, and tomato on a local brioche bun. If that’s not gluttonous enough, order fried chicken on top.

Dahlia Bakery

Copy Link

Next to its Tom Douglas sister Dahlia Lounge, the Bakery is more relaxed and serves breakfast sandwiches from 7:30 a.m. The fried egg and meat sandwich crushes it with a bite of Dijon, but Dahlia also offer delectable vegetarian options.

Macrina Bakery and Café

Copy Link

While Macrina’s loaves can be found at other purveyors, go straight to the source for a fried egg on a just-baked brioche or bialy bun. Country ham is optional, but highly recommended.

Serious Pie & Biscuit

Copy Link

Though it’s known for its wood-fired pizza, don’t overlook the “biscuit” in this Tom Douglas restaurant’s name. Highlights include fried green tomato, egg, and bacon biscuit and the “Zach,” with fried chicken, gravy, bacon, and egg.

The Wandering Goose

Copy Link

Wandering Goose is an equally great spot for brunch or quick weekday breakfast in Capitol Hill. Go with a simple egg and cheese or the more serious Sweet Blonde, with country ham, egg over-easy, cheese, and Steen’s butter. Wash it down with an “Old Dominican,” a daily fresh-squeezed juice blend of the chef’s choice.

Volunteer Park Cafe

Copy Link

Sourcing from its own garden whenever possible and using eggs from estate chickens, Volunteer Park’s breakfast sandwiches are always fresh and delicious. Try the bacon & poached egg panini with gruyere and tomato, or a featured seasonal treat.

Homegrown

Copy Link

Local, seasonal, fast, and easy, Homegrown is a safe bet for a solid breakfast sandwich. Good luck deciding between a sandwich with avocado, egg, cheddar, and hot sauce or bacon, egg, and Beecher’s cheese.

Le Fournil

Copy Link

Steps from Lake Union in Portage Bay, Le Fournil specializes in French pastries and lighter dishes. It’s hard to turn down the Croque Fournil Special, a Croque Madame served on a buttery croissant with drink for $5.99.

Try the Spanish fly – you won’t regret it. But if the combination of prosciutto, fried egg, manchego, and arugula with Mama Lil’s pepper aioli somehow isn’t your jam, Morsel has an excellent selection of other breakfast sandwiches. Plus, the Ballard location has a drive-thru for biscuits and fixin’s.

The Fat Hen

Copy Link

This Ballard café feels just like its dishes taste: impeccable and understated. In a small space with nice light, lounge over an Italian-inspired breakfast pastry and egg-topped avocado toast. Lines build quickly, so the best bet is to arrive around 8 a.m., soon after the doors open.
