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

The Red Eyed Mule

Copy Link

After relocating to South Marietta Parkway, the Red Eyed Mule and its biscuits are back online. Order a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit or a sausage and gravy biscuit. Make sure to ask about the restaurant’s Mornin’ Mule special sandwich, too. Waits can be long on the weekends. Call to order for pickup. Increased seating options outside.

Tortas Factory Del DF

Copy Link

Opening at 7 a.m., head to Tortas Factory Del D.F. in Doraville for tortas served on rolls baked by Panaderia Del Valle. Try the huevos, frijoles, y jamon torta (egg, beans, and ham). The sandwich can also be made with chorizo (sausage) or just the beans. Pair it with horchata. Call to order or walk in and order at the counter.

The General Muir

Copy Link

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. Delivery available via DoorDash.

Star Provisions Market & Cafe

Copy Link

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.

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.

Candler Park Market

Copy Link

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.

Atlanta Breakfast Club

Copy Link

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.

BeetleCat

Copy Link

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.

Ticonderoga Club

Copy Link

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.

Buenos Dias Cafe

Copy Link

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. Order the breakfast pupusas filled with bacon, egg, and cheese and topped with salsa and served with a side of plantains. Order a guava pastry, too. Order online for pickup or delivery via GrubHub, Postmates, DoorDash, UberEats, and Ritual. The owners also operate The Window and La Bodega at the Met in the West End. Check out Instagram for the daily menu updates and popup vendor information

Le Petit Marche

Copy Link

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.

Emerald City Bagels

Copy Link

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.

Little Tart Bakeshop

Copy Link

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.
