There are few things more satisfying than a fat breakfast sandwich while you are nursing a hangover on a Sunday morning. Today, we are going to cover the top spots in Western Massachusetts to get your fix.
Rice’s is slinging up the realest breakfast sandwiches in the game, with massive homemade bagels, to farm fresh eggs, and thicc slices of bacon and sausage patties. You can get these bad boys on any type of bagel. From wild cheddar cheese bagels to blueberry bagels, Rice has you covered (Well, if they didn’t already sell out of your favorite flavor that morning).
They have 5 core breakfast sandwiches. Of these 5, our two favorites are the “Spicy” and the “Sweet.”
The “Sweet” is covered in real maple syrup and caramelized onions. It will surely have your mouth watering and your hands sticky.
The “Spicy” comes with a chipotle mayo that will give you the kick in the pants you need to start the day.
We HIGHLY recommend that you order ahead (Either online or over the phone) to avoid the wait.
A pro-tip is getting a muffintop along with your breakfast sandwich. Yup, these are exactly what they sound like, just the top of a muffin. Muffintops are made fresh daily, so get there nice and early to get them hot from the oven. We are sure you will enjoy the warm, gooey goodness of these gifts from the heavens.
Right down the street from Rice is Village Store, so if the line is too long, or you are looking to switch it up– this hidden gem delivers all the flavor (With half the line).
Here, the breakfast burritos are the star of the show. Tightly wrapped and packed with flavor, these are always a great start to the day. Your mouth will water as the cheese pours out of it, and the crispy veggies crunch in your mouth. If you tend to wake up on later end, and are feeling in more of a sandwich mood, Village also has a robust selection of paninis and sandwiches.
The last thing we must mention about Village Store is the vibe. if you are looking for a spot to bang out a few hours of work, then the Village Store Cafe has the perfect set up. With large, comfortable couches and rustic wooden tables it is the perfect spot to spend an afternoon outside the house.
Shelburne Falls Coffee Roasters is the utility player of coffee shops. They do it all. Looking for a full-bodied coffee? They got you covered. Is your sweet tooth calling and you need a fix? All of their pastries are fire. Looking for something more filling? They have a variety of great breakfast sandwiches, burritos, and traditional sandwiches. Everything Shelburne Falls does, they do it well.
If you thought Starbucks drinks were over the top at times, Shelburne gives them a run for their money. Coffee is definitely the star of the show here, but there really isn’t a bad item on the menu.
