Breakfast at East Hampton is perfect for picky eaters and control freaks, because every aspect is customizable. Pick your bread (English muffin or the much larger sesame seed bun), your egg style (fried, scrambled, or whites), your cheese (goat, cheddar, swiss, or American), and your protein (fried chicken, maple bacon, ham, or turkey sausage). Then dress it up with your choice of sauces -- think honey or spicy aioli -- and extras like spring mix, caramelized onions, tomato, and avocado. [Photo: Lori Bandi]

It's hard to beat the convenience of a drive-thru breakfast sandwich, but McDonald's is generally a one-way ticket to Regret Town. Hit up Start instead, where you can snag a bacon, egg, and cheddar on a toasted English muffin, or get a little healthier with the still-rather-tasty egg white and veggie option that gets an extra punch of flavor from curry butter. (Bonus: There's also now a second location on Lemmon Avenue near Oak Lawn.) [Photo: Start/Facebook]

This little Lakewood gem has a great Cuban, but the breakfast sandwiches are also pretty awesome -- and they pair perfectly with the deliciously sweet and strong Cuban coffee. Try the the ham and scrambled egg on ciabatta, which gets added zing from pickled red onions and spicy mayo.

CBD's sausage and egg sandwich is definitely a splurge at $14, but it's worth it: The sausage patties are housemade, the egg is sunny-side up and perfect, it's spiked with spicy house-cured chilies, and it comes served on the same excellent potato bun as the famed burger, flanked by a generous portion of skillet potatoes.
