The Queen City’s Most Undeniably Amazing Breakfast Sandwiches

The title says it all. There’s nothing quite as comforting as knowing that you’re about to consume a culmination of all things breakfast placed between carbohydrates.
We all know the feeling of looking at a breakfast or brunch menu and being overwhelmed by all the choices. Alas, the ever-faithful breakfast sandwich is always there to save the day and keep your tired, likely hungover brain from having to make too many difficult decisions. In this post we’ll cover the spots that deliver the most satisfying versions of this breakfast king. Here are the restaurants where you’re pretty much guaranteed to get the best of the best.

The Grange

You can’t go wrong with anything at The Grange Community Kitchen in Hamburg, and the breakfast sandwich selections are no exception. My first enlightening was with the porchetta, fried egg and pesto on a sesame potato bun. The second was with smoked sausage, fried egg and charred pepper mayo on a buttermilk biscuit. Each time, a little piece of my soul happily fled off. But really, they’re that good. Like any good restaurant, their offerings tend to change here and there, but we’re pretty confident that whatever is on the menu the day you visit is worth a try.

Elm Street Bakery

Elm Street Bakery is a Southtowns destination for any meal. Whether you want to sit down with a coffee, a glass of wine on a quiet Sunday morning (yeah, we said morning), or you’re just looking to grab-and-go, Elm Street Bakery is the place you want to be in order to do it right. Big surprise here – their breakfast sandwich is perfection and comes complete with a poached egg, bacon, cheddar cheese, spiced aïoli, and arugula on their house-baked bread of course. Guaranteed to start your day off on the right note. It also comes without meat with our vegetarian friends.

Black Sheep

The McGriddle is newish to the Black Sheep brunch menu. Basically, Chef Steve Gedra at Black Sheep combined a bunch of their amazing brunch items into one mega-amazing brunch sammy. It’s constructed with house breakfast sausage, scrambled eggs, and the modified Red Leicester cheese used on their house burger between two mini pancake buns (!!!). Plus you get a potato roesti and sour cream on the side, as if you even needed a side.

If you couldn’t tell, there’s an underlying theme in this article. And if you know anything about these restaurants, you already know the deal — local. It’s truly what makes these sandwiches as delicious as they are. Chef skills matter, of course, but the thoughtful sourcing that goes into the ingredients is crucial. Toutant is one of the leaders of this movement locally, and it shows in their breakfast sandwich. Two fried eggs, sausage or bacon, cheese, buttermilk bun, and taters. Simple, fresh, and more delicious than you ever thought a breakfast sandwich could be.

SPoT – Mike Sandwich

The ‘Mike Sandwich’ from SPoT has been a hangover favorite of mine for years. I am loyal to bacon, so my version is with bacon on an everything bagel. Add eggs, provolone and cream cheese, and you’ve got yourself the heartiest hangover cure of all time. No regrets. Except I don’t know what you did the night before…

Undergrounds' Breakfast Sandwich

Undergrounds Coffee Roastery

Undergrounds has a sandwich featuring egg, sausage, pepper jack and dried apricot chipotle on a toasted baguette. How does that sound? Good? Great? That’s what I thought. Dried apricot chipotle!? Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Because I’m thinking that it should make an appearance on just about every breakfast sandwich ever made until the end of time. Oh, that’s what you’re thinking too? What a coincidence.

Croque, Croque Madame 👌

Lait Cru Brasserie – UPDATE: CLOSED (but we really hope they reopen)

I’m a total sucker for a Croque Madame, so when I see it on then menu I have to order it. I can say with complete honesty that Lait Cru Chef Will Peterson’s Croque Madame is on par with the one I had in a Parisian cafe. In conclusion: It’s a really really exciting time to be a Buffalonian that loves to indulge in Croque Madames.

Everyone’s been buzzing about Breadhive since its inception, but the hive has grown immensely since they first hit the scene. With their new cafe opening on Connecticut street this summer, they’ve given us breakfast lovers the opportunity to eat their delicious sandwiches / bagel sandwiches six days a week. My personal favorite breakfast sandwich is the Britney, which is comprised of lox, red onion, cucumber and dill cream cheese – all held together by a perfect bagel. But of course if lox aren’t your think there are tons more to choose from.

Reminiscing about brunch @dappergoose and this beast of a sandwich 🐖 #porkloin #breakfastsammy

Dapper Goose

If you’re looking for something a little different and more veggie-heavy, Dapper Goose’s pork loin (LOL) sandwich on their brunch menu delivers. It combines the succulent tenderness of pork loin, crunchiness of broccoli rabe, spiciness of long hot peppers, and juiciness of layers of melted provolone between two thick slices of house-made sourdough bread. If you want to be a total savage like me, top it off with a fried egg for a genuinely amazing breakfast sandwich experience.
