Market St. Quick Breakfasts

Posted on Mar 11, 2013 in Food & Drink, Top Posts


I walk to work from the free parking lot next to McDonald’s, but you’d be hard pressed to find me eating a McWhatever. It’s depressing to see cars lined up for an Egg McMuffin, but then see barely anyone on Market St.  If you’re an reader and occasional fast food breakfast eater, make it a point to spread the love to other local businesses.

Alternatives to my fast food favorites

Instead of an Egg McMuffin

Sorges BreakfastSorge’s Breakfast Muffin ( $3-$4)

Absolutely fantastic sandwich!  McDonald’s doesn’t hold a candle to this bad boy.

Instead of McDonald’s Bagel w/ Sausage, Egg, & Cheese

Declementes Breakfast

DeClemente’s Breakfast Bagel ($3ish)

This is by far my most ordered breakfast sandwich on Market St. Awesome sausage! I usually go for a sesame or everything bagel. As you can tell from the picture, I just had to take a bite before I took the photo.

 Instead of Burger King’s Breakfast Croissant

Not the best photo (sorry), but directly across the street from Burger King you’ll find a far superior breakfast Croissant (and it comes with potatoes).

Note: if you don’t plan on eating-in and you’re in a rush, try calling ahead as they sometimes put a little extra love (time) into their creations.

 Instead of McDonald’s Oatmeal

Walker OatmealWalker Cake Company’s Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal ($5ish)

Walker has a few oatmeal and granola options, but their Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal is my favorite. It is PACKED with blueberries and topped with granola and wheat germ. It’s absolutely fantastic and not loaded with sugar (although you’ll find real maple syrup on every table if needed for a sweet tooth kind of morning).
