Few things may be more satisfying in the morning than indulging in a hot breakfast sandwich, especially while on-the-go. The classic construction of thin bread that gives way to a runny egg and crispy bacon seems to always be a winner, but there are plenty of exciting options beyond this version out there. Here are a few great breakfast sandwiches to grab in the morning and kick off the day right.

Disclaimer: A number of Atlanta restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the Georgia Department of Health. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines

Looking for a hearty breakfast sandwich? Try the pastrami egg sandwich — a fusion of three things the General Muir does exceptionally well: bread, pastrami, and breakfast. The breakfast version features crispy pastrami, fried egg, gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, and deli sauce served on a bun, while the brunch option has a fried egg, steamed pastrami, Russian sauce, and American cheese served on rye. Order online for pickup.

Copy Link
1460 Ellsworth Industrial Blvd NW
Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 365-0410
Visit Website

Of all the carb-y options on Star Provisions’ breakfast menu, the French omelette baguette stands out above the rest. Brie is wrapped up in a blanket of fluffy French omelette and served on a crusty baguette. Level up and add prosciutto. For a sweet-savory combination, get the sausage biscuit with strawberry jam. There’s also a classic BEC on the menu topped with bitter greens on a toasted soft roll. Order online for pickup.

5. B-Side

Copy Link
155 Sycamore St
Decatur, GA 30030
(404) 748-4617
Visit Website

The casual neighbor to the Deer and the Dove, B-Side’s wood-fired bagels are good, but for a classic breakfast sandwich don’t overlook the egg on a roll. It’s simply a fried farm egg and cheddar cheese on a kaiser roll (option to add sausage, bacon, or ham) and hits the spot just right. Call to order for pickup.

6. Candler Park Market

Copy Link
1642 McLendon Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 373-9787
Visit Website

Breakfast is served everyday at Candler Park Market and runs until 2 p.m. on the weekends. That means there’s no excuse not to roll out of bed and order one of the breakfast sandwiches here. The standout on the menu is the Hamlet, with scrambled eggs, ham, pepperjack cheese, and avocado. For a vegetarian option, try the Claire with scrambled eggs, caramelized onions, and American cheese. Order online for pickup.

7. Atlanta Breakfast Club

Copy Link
249 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd NW
Atlanta, GA 30313
(470) 428-3825
Visit Website

The Atlanta Breakfast Club downtown has been drawing big crowds since opening its doors on Ivan Allen in 2016. Look for comfort dishes of chicken and waffles, peach cobbler French toast, and breakfast tacos with smoked bacon and scrambled eggs. Order a build-your-own breakfast sandwich with a choice of bread or biscuit, egg style, meat, and the option to add cheese. Order online for pickup.

8. BeetleCat

299 North Highland Avenue Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30307
(678) 732-0360
Visit Website

On Saturday and Sunday, the 1970s-style den at BeetleCat serves a doughnut-themed brunch. The glazed chicken option features crispy chicken and a fried egg between two glazed doughnuts. Yes, it’s Instagrammable, but it also strikes the right balance of sweet and savory, soft and crispy. Plan on eating it with a fork and knife. It’s messy. Reservations highly encouraged if dining in. Patio recommended. Call to order for takeout.

9. Ticonderoga Club

Copy Link
Krog Street Market, 99 Krog St NE W
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 458-4534
Visit Website

The New England-inspired tavern inside Krog Street Market includes its popular “Yankee” bacon, egg, and cheese (BEC) sandwich for brunch on the weekends. It comes on a kaiser roll and should probably be ordered alongside the home fries for extra carb loading. The Club is currently open for takeout only. Order online for pickup at the window.

10. Buenos Dias Cafe

30 Decatur St SE
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 584-0444

Buenos Dias Cafe is a no frills restaurant in downtown Atlanta to grab all-day breakfast (think breakfast tacos), quesadillas, nachos, tacos, and a classic Cuban sandwich.

Why have a sandwich on plain white bread when it can come on French toast? The latter is on the menu at Kirkwood’s darling Le Petit Marché. Scrambled eggs and a choice of meat are stuffed between vanilla-rum battered French toast. It’s served with a hearty drizzle of syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Masks required inside. Order online for pickup. Delivery via GrubHub.

12. Emerald City Bagels

1257A Glenwood Ave SE
Atlanta, GA 30316
(404) 343-3758
Visit Website

What the East Atlanta Village spot lacks in seating it more than makes up for with the bagels. Try one of the bagel sandwiches with egg, cheese (American, Swiss, or cheddar), and meat (sausage, pork roll, or bacon). These sandwiches are especially satisfying for breakfast on the go. Go all out and add cream cheese. Order and pay online for pickup. No in-person payments accepted at this time.

68 Georgia Ave SE
Atlanta, GA 30312

Visit Website

It’s no surprise that Little Tart, home of locally-sourced dairy products, serves a divine breakfast sandwich. Fluffy scrambled eggs topped with cheese (and optional meat — get the ham) stand tall between a soft English muffin. It’s dense without being too heavy and goes great with one of the bakery-cafe’s espresso drinks. Little Tart has locations in Grant Park and inside Krog Street Market, too. Walk-ins welcome. Order online for pickup at Grant Park location only. Check website for updated hours and daily menus.
