The Park Cafe's fried egg sandwich has a loyal following of breakfast enthusiasts. The avocado, egg, cheddar, and bacon stack makes more appearances on Instagram feeds than Kim Kardashian. And, why not, the natural lighting in the restaurant is perfect for food photos.

Mercantile And Mash

Copy Link
Line up at Mercantile and Mash if you're in need of an egg sandwich with fried boudin or shaved ham. These hearty morning offerings may require a napkin and a nap afterwards.

Johnny's Hot Dogs

Copy Link
Believe it or not, one of the most filling and affordable egg sandwiches in Mount Pleasant comes from a hot dog stand. Stop by Johnny's off of Ben Sawyer Boulevard for a sausage egg, and cheese or a Taylor ham, egg, and cheese for under $5.00

Café Framboise

Copy Link
Café Framboise is French (obviously) so the kitchen soufflés the eggs for its sandwiches. This results in a fluffy canvas for bacon, béchamel, or spinach, depending on which egg sandwich you choose. Bread selections also come in baguette, brioche, croissant and egg bread.

North Central Delicatessen

Copy Link
Huger Street newcomer North Central Delicatessen serves some of the most "authentic" bagel sandwiches around — "authentic" if you reminisce fondly of New York bodega sandwiches. In the mornings, order a double Taylor pork roll with American cheese and scrambled egg, and be the envy of your officemates.

Brown's Court Bakery

Copy Link
Brown's Court Bakery may be known for its sweets, but do not overlook the breakfast sandwiches. All varieties of egg, cheese, bacon, ham, or chorizo are warm and ready to go as soon as the store opens, so you don't have to wait for the heavy stacks of morning goodness. These sandwiches will keep you full all day.

Scram Food Truck

Copy Link
Former FIG pastry chef Melanie Durant set up shop in a food truck to bring James Island freshly baked crullers, cinnamon buns, egg sandwiches, and more. The mobile kitchen sets up on Thursdays through Sundays and routinely sells out within hours. Don't miss the ham and runny egg sandwich with gruyere and piña jam.
