Alexandria’s Best Breakfast Sandwiches

There’s nothing quite like the combination of eggs, bacon, cheese and a hard roll to start your day off right. Whether you’re looking for an easy-going Saturday breakfast, or easing into Sunday after a late night out, breakfast sandwiches might just be the king of morning meals. This powerful canvas of carbohydrates is also the perfect vessel for creativity. New Jersey has pork roll, Alabama has biscuits, and Vermont uses cheddar. What is Alexandria’s go-to? Luckily, we live in a diverse community where, whether you’re craving buttermilk biscuits or a buttery brioche, we have the best variety of America’s best breakfast between bread. 


Stomping Ground

Two words: comfort food. Stomping Ground is a Del Ray staple. There is nothing quite like their beautifully flaky, golden biscuits. What’s even better? Turning those biscuits into a masterpiece breakfast sandwich. Make your own with Hook’s Cheddar Cheese, poached eggs, seasonal vegetables, house sausage, Benton’s Bacon or Black Forest Ham and smashed avocado. You can also go with the go-to called “the Classic,” which is fried chicken, pimento cheese and pickles. Don’t mind us, we’ll just be over here dreaming of biscuits all day.
