es, it’s technically in Burbank. Yes, the cafe’s service is often slow. And, yes, the menu is overpriced. But, none of that changes the fact that I’ve eaten a lot of breakfast sandwiches in Los Angeles, and Coffee Commissary’s Burbank Biscuit breakfast sandwich is the one I fantasize about at night before I fall asleep or after (or during) a tough gym workout. The perfectly cooked free range egg, sharp cheddar, and crispy bacon (optional) are great, but it’s the buttery, flaky biscuit — baked fresh every day by the Commissary’s in-house bakery — that turns the creation into a masterpiece. I also love the salty potatoes with ketchup that come on the side. For a perfect morning, top it off with their delicious iced vanilla latte, one of the best coffees in Los Angeles with special made-in-house vanilla syrup.
Honorable Mention: The Fairfax from Eggslut in the Grand Central Market downtown is also excellent. (Though, sigh, I miss when Eggslut was a food truck that traveled around the city.) WB
