6 Great Breakfast Sandwiches
What better way to start the day than with a savoury egg sandwich with all the fixings.
Start your day with a yummy breakfast sandwich.
Eggs benedict isn’t the only thing to enjoy during brunch. Try something that doesn’t need a knife and a fork instead. Here are six filling breakfast sandwiches that you can eat quickly while sipping your coffee or easily take to go.
Blue Star Cafe (and Dairylane Cafe) Bridgeland Breakfast Sandwich
The two popular sister restaurants located in Bridgeland and Hillhurst may have different names, but they keep similar menus, which include this breakfast sandwich filled with eggs, Sylvan Star gruyere, local tomatoes and bacon and a house-made pesto. What a way to start the day!

Bumpy’s Cafe Breakfast Panini
Always a great spot for the downtown crowd, Bumpy’s breakfast panini starts with egg and some good quality cheddar. From there, you can add condiments of your choosing to make it your own. Grab a well-made latte on the side and stroll to work step-by-step, bite-by-bite.

Rosso Coffee Roasters Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich
The Caffe Rosso chain recently rebranded to a new name, Rosso Coffee Roasters. Thankfully, the breakfast sandwich remains unchanged, made on a freshly baked herb and cheese biscuit with eggs and bacon and some honey mustard to help perk you up.

Diner Deluxe Breakfast Sandwich
The original location still garners long line-ups regardless of the day of week. With plates like this sandwich, stacked high with over-easy eggs, tomatoes, lettuce, cheddar and choice of bacon or chorizo, it’s easy to see why.

Galaxie Diner The Calgary Sandwich
Long before we called things “breakfast sandwiches” there was the Denver sandwich. This diner’s spin on that classic is full of everything from sauted peppers, bacon, sausage and onions to banana peppers and, of course, eggs. It’s a big one, so bring your appetite.

Local on 8th Avenue Fried Egg Sandwich
It’s always nice when the yolks of the eggs are just soft enough to break and coat the bread they’re sandwiched between, and that’s exactly how they’re done at Local. The grilled sourdough bread keeps its shape and lets you keep your sandwich easily in-hand down to the last bite, which is definitely an underrated sandwich trait.
