A decent breakfast sandwich often does the trick. But a great one? That’s good as gold, baby. Nothing perks up a Saturday morning – hangover or not, weather not pending – like a satisfying breakfast sammy.

If you ask us, ratios are key. Heartiness and seasoning are everything. Mess-less-ness is pretty important. Fanciness is unnecessary, but still, welcome. Ingredient combos are left to personal preference and need not be debated.

To aid in your search for the best breakfast sandwiches in Western New York and/or your neighborhood, we polled our social media followers to bring you a list of the best around town. Pro-tip: save this post for future reference.

Let’s get into the guide – in order to pull the following list together, we asked our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram followers where to find the best breakfast sandwiches in Buffalo and WNY. They answered with their top picks and we’ve included the full list of reader recommendations below as long as it was mentioned more than once.

Because we received hundreds of comments resulting in tons of recommendations, there are options all across WNY including all kinds of service-types, all worth recommending according to Western New Yorkers.
