What’s the only Los Angeles meal more satisfying than a well-made sandwich? A breakfast sandwich, of course (and I don’t mean a certain fast food creation that seems to rule the McMornings).
Angelenos are very lucky that so many eateries around the city boast some of the most delicious breakfast offerings around, and we’re definitely not slacking in the sando department.
Eggs, bacon, lettuce, tomato, sausage, pastrami — you name it, these breakfast sandwiches have got it, and they taste so very, very good, you’ll be wishing breakfast time was an all-day thing.
Check out some of L.A.’s best breakfast sandwiches below (listed in no particular order).

1. Pastrami Nosh From Plan Check Kitchen & Bar
Plan Check may be best known for their delicious burgers, but the popular restaurant also has a decadent pastrami sandwich available for brunch. The Pastrami Nosh is an open-faced delight with a sunny-side up fried egg, smoked pastrami, Swiss cheese, kimchi mustard, and pickles. Lucky for Angelenos, Plan Check has multiple locations all over L.A.
2. The BAM From C&M Cafe
It took me about six months to work up the courage to finally try the Palms cafe’s epic BAM! breakfast sandwich, which uses French-toast style cinamon buns as bread to the fried eggs, bacon, and sausage inside. It’s sweet and savory heaven.
3. Mc_Abigaile At Abigaile
Behold this Hermosa Beach spot’s own version of McDonald’s Egg McMuffin — called the “mc_abigaile” (underscore included). What’s the difference? Well, the mc_abigaile gets its deliciousness from American cheese, fennel sausage, sauce, egg, and a side of tots for good measure.
4. Breakfast Sandwich At The Churchill
This Third Street sammie is a fan favorite of many Angelenos and is often declared the best in the city by many people. The Churchill’s Breakfast Sandwich features cage-free eggs, cheddar, bacon, avocado, and tomato jam served on sourdough bread.
5. Scrambled Egg & Chorizo Sandwich From Sycamore Kitchen
Get your morning (or mid-afternoon) munch on by The Grove with Sycamore Kitchen’s scrambled egg and chorizo sandwich, which also comes with Swiss cheese, roasted onion, and pan de miel. It’s salty, it’s sweet, and it’s got a ton of flavor in each bite.

6. Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich From Clementine
There’s so much to love about this West L.A. eatery: Grilled Cheese Month (a special menu they run every April), and the biscuit breakfast sandwich. Clementine knows how to do darn good brunch fare, but this breakfast sammie features applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and a poached egg on a deliciously flaky buttermilk biscuit.
7. GTA Egg Sandwich From Gjelina Take Away
If you can brave the wait, then breakfast sandwich heaven is yours to enjoy. The Venice mainstay’s take away menu boasts a lot of deliciousness for breakfast and brunch, but its GTA egg sandwich on an English muffin is a particular favorite. The GTA egg sandwich is equipped with braised kale, bacon, Gruyere, and hotsauce.
8. BLT From Stir Market
Located by The Grove on Beverly Boulevard, Stir Market is an actual market with an amazing selection in a large and seemingly endless menu. For breakfast, the Stir BLT features an egg, Gruyere, heirloom tomato, and aioli. Stir also has wine, craft beers, and a coffee bar to help wash it down.
9. Fried Egg Sandwich From BLD
How much flavor can you pack into one breakfast sandwich? Let me count the ways in the fried egg sandwich from BLD on Beverly Boulevard. This sought-after sammie has bacon, a fried egg, Gruyere cheese, and aioli on toasted sourdough bread.
10. The Fairfax From Egg Slut
It’s hard to top the name of this Grand Central Market eatery in Downtown L.A., but Egg Slut’s menu has many of the best breakfast sandwiches out there. But it’s The Fairfax sandwich that has captured the most hearts with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, and Sriracha mayo on a brioche bun. And if you can brave Eggslut’s long line, it’ll all be worth it.
11. French Toast Breakfast Sandwich From Eagle Rock Brewery Public House
French toast is a pretty decadent breakfast treat in itself, but in sandwich form? It’s absolute heaven. Eagle Rock Brewery mixes the best of both worlds in its French toast breakfast sammie, which has a fried egg, a bacon patty, and cheddar cheese on sourdough bread. It’s also topped with powdered sugar and served with maple syrup for the full effect.
12. Fried Egg Sandwich At The Fat Dog
This West Hollywood joint boasts a comprehensive brunch menu — and a breakfast sammie — worth getting up early for. The fried egg sandwich comes with domestic prosciutto, Swiss cheese, baby argula, tomato. and a sunny-side up egg on a bun
