Start your day on the sunny side with one of these eggy wonders.
L.A. natives and childhood friends Nick Schreiber and J.D. Rocchio have been hawking bagel sammies from the window of the Hi Hat on York Boulevard since 2016. It’s hard to tell if it’s the hand-rolled bagels or the “thicc cut” bacon that often causes the guys to sell out early. 5043 York Blvd., Highland Park.
This corner spot on Rose Avenue offers vegetarians an egg, cheese, avocado, and imitation sausage stack on an English muffin to call their own. The secret sauce seals the deal. 513 Rose Ave., Venice.
It’s easy to mistake the miracle of Undergrind Cafe for a mirage on barren South Robertson. But with a perfectly crisp over-hard egg, sizzling sausage patty, and $5 price tag, this hidden gem of a breakfast bite compares favorably to its buzzier counterparts. 2713 S. Robertson Blvd., Beverlywood.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: The golden-brown bun, spicy chorizo, and hefty serving of scrambled egg keep this a classic mainstay. Thanks to the sugary tang of the caramelized onions and tomato spread, both sweet and savory are in the bag. 143 S. La Brea Ave., Hancock Park.
