The Flanched Flarney Garney at Phoenix Public Market

This giant breakfast sandwich includes bacon, mayonniaise, avocado, cheddar cheese, and scrambled egg on a soft breakfast bun. The ingredients are fresh, especially the avocado, just like pretty much everything else on the menu at chef Aaron Chamberlin's Phoenix Public Market Cafe in downtown Phoenix. With its layers and layers of scrambled eggs, this hearty sandwich requires diners come at it with all they've got. So don't be ashamed if you can't take down the Flarney Garney down in a single sitting.

Just look at those eggs and bacon busting out from the sides.

The Five Spot at Matt's Big Breakfast

Matt's is an often-crowded breakfast and lunch spot in downtown Phoenix that's well-known in part from its appearance on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. The restaurant's popular "Five Spot" sandwich is the first item on the menu, and is about as classic you can get when it comes to breakfast sandwiches. It consists of American cheese, egg, grilled onions, and two slices of Matt's famous thick bacon on a large roll. Just be prepared to wait if you visit on the weekends; the restaurant doesn't take reservations, and there's often a crowd of people waiting outside.

B.E.L.T. at Postino Wine Cafe

This breakfast sandwich consists of applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, scrambled egg, and dijonnaise. And while it's a more expensive breakfast sandwich than most at nearly $10, you get what you pay for at Postino Wine Cafe. The sandwich is generously sized and all of the flavors work well together making this the perfect combo of a breakfast sandwich and a classic B.L.T. Plus, the Postino has a great brunch vibe, and you get a cup of fruit on the side. Just beware that this sandwich is only available during Postino's weekend brunch.

Simple Breakfast Sandwich at Liberty Market

Liberty Market's "Simple Breakfast Sandwich" is just what the name implies, simple and delicious. The sandwich features scrambled eggs, American cheese, and bacon on a ciabatta bun, and tough the bacon isn't the best we've ever tasted the melted cheese mixed with egg is pretty much perfection. If you're looking for something with a little more flavor, the Gilbert restaurant also serves the Chef David's Breakfast Sandwich, which is made with mortadella, tomato, arugula, caramelized onions, and chipotle cream cheese.

Sprouted Grain Bagel Sandwich at Original ChopShop Co.

The Sprouted Grain Bagel Sandwich is the ideal breakfast sandwich for the health nuts out there. Plus, you can get the eggs cooked your way and your choice of either ham, turkey, bacon, or prosciutto. We prefer scrambled eggs and prosciutto, and while the ingredients are fresh at ChopShop, it's the extra-fluffy scrambled eggs that make this sandwich stand out. The sprouted bagel comes crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, and the avocado pesto adds a refreshing layer of flavor.

Jo-Mama's Breakfast Sandwich at Jobot

If you are getting tired of the all those hum-drum breakfast sandwiches, then you might want to give Jobot's version a try. The downtown Phoenix coffee shop's sandwich includes an over easy egg, cheddar cheese, spinach, pit smoked ham, tomato, and house honey Dijon sauce on a fluffy English muffin. The bold flavors make this sandwich stand out from the rest of the pack -- plus, Jobot's open in the wee hours of the night and serves breakfast all day, meaning you don't even have to wake up early to try this sandwich out.

This sandwich is the giant of breakfast sandwiches.

Breakfast Panini at FEZ

FEZ recently relocated to a new location in midtown Phoenix, and the restaurant's new home offers one of the best brunch ambiances in town. The restaurant's take on the breakfast sandwich does not disappoint, and eating the entire sandwich and side salad in one sitting can be a quite a feat. The monstrous breakfast panini includes eggs, ham, bacon, tomato, cheddar cheese, and garlic aioli on grilled ciabatta bread.

Egg Sandwich at Lux Coffee Bar

Lux in uptown Phoenix is well-known for its coffee, pastries, and mac n cheese, and you can be sure the breakfast sandwich lives up to the restaurant's reputation. The egg sandwich is intensely flavorful form the first bite. Though it's simple -- made with fried egg, bacon, tomato, and cheddar cheese on an English muffin -- Lux knows how to do simple, well. Pair it with a coffee and a pastry and you've got a triple threat, folks.

Simple, yet satisfying.

Ham & Cheese Bagel Sandwich at Bosa Donuts on Indian School

Bosa is obviously popular with the doughnut crowd, but don't worry if you don't have a big sweet tooth. The doughnut shop's breakfast sandwich is a bagel sandwich that you could probably make at home yourself, but for some reason the shop's versions is extra satisfying. Ham, cheese, and an egg come inside a toasted bagel, making this a perfect on-the-go breakafst when you aren't in the mood for something sweet. Plus, the shop has a convenient drive thru and at less than $3 a pop, this sandwich is quite a steal.

Waffle Breakfast Samich at Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles

To be honest, the open-faced breakfast sandwich at Lo-Lo's could just as well be a waffle taco. And while a waffle isn't usually what you think of when ordering a "sandwich," the ingredients in this dish are exactly what you'd expect. They include all the breakfast sanwich essentials, including bacon and cheesy eggs, all of which are then stuffed in to a classic Lo-Lo's waffle. You have your choice of meats in case you're getting tired of the traditional bacon -- and the best part? It comes with butter and syrup, so you can create your own ideal combination of salty, sweet, and cheesy flavors.
