All Good Cafe's egg sandwich
2934 Main St.
This is one of the most consistently delicious sandwiches in the city, and one of the more underrated grabs in Deep Ellum. Breakfast is served until 3 p.m., which means you can nurse a raucous hangover with a fried egg, curtains of ham and mayonnaise that's been elbowed with Tabasco long after normal lunchtime. It will clear the gin-soaked debris from your head.

The Grape's Breakfast on a Bun
2808 Greenville Ave.
Everything you want in a breakfast sandwich happens when you order the BOB at The Grape during brunch. Vital Farms eggs, which always have a stunning, fall-pumpkin-colored yolk, are fried over medium and served on a pain au lait bun with sausage and a boat sail of American cheese. A few hammers of Texas Pete hot sauce are a simple, yet ingenious way to cut through the buttery richness. It’s a Sunday morning sandwich at its best.

Zaguan's egg, ham and cheese
2604 Oak Lawn Ave.
The bread at Zaguan is as close as you can get to eating an actual cloud. Pillowy with a delicately crunchy exterior, this bread is the perfect vehicle for folds of eggs, fried ham, lettuce and mayo. It comes with hot salsa for the plantain chips, which you’ll use as a sandwich-dipper if you’re smart.

The Amy at Hypnotic Donuts
9007 Garland Road
The Amy sandwich is fried chicken, bacon, pickles, Southwest spicy mustard, a slice of cheddar and a drizzle of honey. Yeah, it’s not exactly going to jump start your morning; we recommend weekend consumption for this bad bitch. Hypnotic marinates their chicken for a full day in a secret bath and then fries it to order. This is DEFCON 1 on the guilty pleasure scale.

Kuby's Open-Faced King Ludwig
6601 Snider Plaza
There are so many good reasons to sit at the counter at Kuby’s and sip endless cups of coffee. One of them is their open-faced Ludwig sandwich, which is toasted rye topped with crisp Canadian bacon. Charred edges on the bacon – even under two sensationally runny eggs and a neatly sour hollandaise sauce – will cause pupil dilation and heart palpitations. Fresh tomato slices cut through the sauce like propellers through wind; it’s fantastic and indulgent. If you’re feeling cheeky, ask for rye bread and close-face this sandwich. You’ll never want a lunch sandwich again.
