Always on the lookout for the best brunch in Boston, we obviously had to try Mike & Patty's. They were voted by Boston Magazine as having the best breakfast sandwiches in Boston in 2014, as well as being the best reason to wake up in 2012. I don't know about you, but if a restaurant is named the best reason to get out of bed in the morning, I'm checking that place out!
As we strolled to their shop from the T station, we found ourselves walking along these adorable, quaint Boston streets- complete with cobblestones, brick walls and sidewalks, and even a sprinkling of snow. Christmas wreaths were still hanging along the street lamps. It doesn't get much cuter than this!
The shop turned out to be SUPER tiny. We were squished in like sardines, which gave me flashbacks to my morning commute every day. Pushing back the PTSD from daily trips on the green line, we ordered quickly and somehow managed to score two barstools in the corner.
Whew! Now we could enjoy the chocolate milk that everyone was raving to us about, as we waited for our sandos. This locally-sourced sweetness turned out to be really amazing. It was sweet but not overpowering, and absolutely full of flavor. If the sandwiches were as good as this milk, we were in for a treat.
And of course, they were! Above you see the scrumptious delight that is the Breakfast Torta, which consisted of fried egg, pepper jack cheese, pickled jalepenos, potato, refritos, salsa, and avocado on a torta roll. It was as jam-packed with flavor as you could imagine, and incredibly hearty! Even the bun itself is something to write home about.
I ordered The Fancy, which comes with fried egg, bacon, cheddar, avocado, red onion, and house mayo served on toasted multigrain. I have to tell you, we both agreed that this innocent-looking sando was the best breakfast sandwich either of us has ever had. We also unanimously agreed on the reason, and that is the house mayo. It was just bursting with flavor, with a subtle kick to it as well. I don't know what magic ingredients they add to it, but it's working!
If I could have one thing to eat for breakfast every single day, I would choose The Fancy from Mike & Patty's. It's impossibly delicious, and has everything you need to start your day- protein, avocado, and that special sauce. My new life goal is to find out how they make their house mayo. Wish me luck!
