Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and eggs are the perfect way to bring sunshine to your morning (or afternoon if we’re being real). If you’re looking for a step up from your corner bodega bacon, egg and cheese, check out our recommendations of five of the best NYC egg sandwiches:
1. Sunny & Annie
Ok so this is the definition of that corner shop bacon, egg and cheese but we know that sometimes that’s what hits the spot. Plus, it doesn’t have to be fancy to be delicious. Sunny & Annie’s bacon, egg and cheese on a bagel or roll only costs $2.50. For an extra fifty cents, you can add hash browns. What a way to start the day.
Address: 94 Ave. B
Maialino serves up the Italian version of an egg sandwich. House porchetta is sliced thin onto ciabatta bread and topped with two fried eggs. This place is definitely on the pricier side, but for an indulgence every once in a while (or for brunch when mom and dad come into town), it’s worth it.
Address: 2 Lexington Ave
3. C&B Cafe
C&B is a small spot, popular for their eclectic breakfast options and coffee. Located in the East Village, this hot spot is famous for their special egg-and-chorizo sandwich on a puffy housemade roll.
Address: 178 E. 7th St.
4. Black Seed Bagels
Black Seed Bagels has been turning out delicious hand rolled, wood-fired bagels for years and they began serving up egg sandwiches by popular demand. Their signature sandwiches range from a typical bagel with cream cheese, to pizza bagels, to their delish egg and cheese. You have the option to top it off with sausage, ham, avocado or tomato.
Address: Various locations; Nolita, East Village, Battery Park
5. Egg Shop
Few places offer a greater variety of delicious, egg-inspired creations than Egg Shop. The robust steak and egg sandwich is popular, along with the Pepper Boy, with bacon, bell peppers, gruyere, and caramelized onion aioli. But hey, there are seven days in a week, might as well try them all!
Address: Various locations; 151 Elizabeth St, Nolita; 138 N 8th St, Williamsburg
