Admit it, you love breakfast sandwiches. And not just when you're hung over.

We feel you. We understand.

Here are some of the city's best examples of this very portable breakfast item.

The breakfast melt at Murray's is an example of attention to detail. The ingredients are the usuals -- bread, egg, cheese, bacon -- but the complexities lie in the fine print. Murray's swaps out the boring and often stale "roll" with an English muffin, and the cheese is Fontina.murrayscheese.com (Credit: Mel Peffs via Flickr)

Available all day and into the night, the sesame pancake sandwich with egg at Vanessa's Dumpling House is an awesome Asian version of the classic breakfast sandwich. You can add veggies and meats if you choose, and we advise upping the intensity by adding Sriracha and soy sauce. These flavor pockets are salty, greasy ... perfect.

Like everything at Dominique Ansel's little SoHo bakery, the breakfast sandwich is melding of ingredients that go well together. The Perfect Little Egg Sandwich starts with a steamed egg, topped with caramelized shallots, chives and a delicate slice of Gruyere, all on a sweet brioche bun. Dainty. Delicious.

Hippie Banjo at Pies 'n' Thighs

And for something completely different, in comes Pies
And for something completely different, in comes Pies 'n' Thighs, which also makes some of the best fried chicken in the city. The sandwich, served at brunch, is, put simply, a fried egg on toast. But it's called a Hippie Banjo for a reason, and that reason is in the details: avocado, Alfalfa sprouts, cheddar, tomato and mayo. And the bread? Anadama, a yeast bread.

This isn't technically a breakfast sandwich, but in this era of avocado toast, let's call it sandwich adjacent. So here's the grand dame of AT, served (go figure) at lunchtime at both Cafe Gitane locations. Avocado comes smeared on top of seven grain toast with lemon juice, chili flakes and olive oil.

Il Buco's's market, Alimentari, serves a seriously delicious breakfast sandwich made with Salame Rosa that's cured in-house. A soft organic egg and Fontina cheese rounds it all out and it's served on focaccia. (53 Great Jones St.) (Credit: Il Buco Alimentari)

Shake Shack

Shake Shack is best known for burgers, but it makes a mean egg and cheese (bacon and sausage optional). Available only at the JFK airport (Terminal 4, near gates B37 and B23) and Grand Central Terminal locations, this breakfast item makes flying, especially early in the morning, less painful. The eggs are cage-free, the cheese American and the bun potato. Also available at its Dubai Airport location, the next time you're flying through. (Credit: Shake Shack)
