A few months ago, I was in Grand Central early in the morning. For some reason I remembered that this Shake Shack location served breakfast. I scrambled to confirm while making my way through the crowd to Dining Area in the huge train station.
I should have just followed the crowd because everyone seemed to be heading to the long line.
Today, if you visit the Shake Shack website and click on the Grand Central location’s sub-site, you’ll see a picture of the delicious breakfast sandwiches…and I guarantee you’ll start drooling just looking at the image. That’s how I felt when I saw people ordering the sandwiches. I knew the long line was worth the wait.
Now, I’m no stranger to the NYC “Bodega” Bacon Egg and Cheese sandwiches that you can get at the corner store of the many city boroughs. These sandwiches very much compare!
What makes them unique? The sandwiches are on potato buns…much like their ShackBurgers. I ordered a Bacon, Egg N’ Cheese sandwich. I also tried out the Stumpton Cold Brew with Milk because I’m an iced coffee snob and that was the closest thing to my favorite caffeinated beverage.
As I mentioned above, the breakfast sandwich comparable to a “Bodega” BEC. They understand the perfect proportion of crispy bacon to grilled egg to American cheese to potato bun. Not too greasy. Not too dry. The cold brew was as refreshing as I imagined it to be (I notice now most major coffee chains adopted the Cold Brew movement).
Since this visit months ago, I have enjoyed this sandwich and coffee combo at the Fulton Center location and it was just as amazing as my first time.
Don’t forget to make your way to Shake Shack‘s convenient locations for a breakfast bite. You will not regret it. And then maybe even head back for lunch / dinner.
