12 Best Vegan Breakfast Sandwiches in Los Angeles

The vegan breakfast sandwiches at these LA restaurants go hard! They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it might as well be the best, right? RIGHT! From classic fast food-style copycats to more innovative variations like chicken & waffle or apple-filled handhelds, there are so many amazing vegan breakfast sandwiches around town. Here are our favorites!

NOMOO

Fairfax

NOMOO’s Truffle Cheese Breakfast Sandwich is one of the most epic vegan breakfast dishes in all of LA. In between a perfectly toasted English muffin lies an Impossible sausage patty, folded JUST Egg, slab of melted American cheese, crispy hash browns, slices on slices of avocado, and copious amounts of truffle cheese sauce. Sounds delicious, right? This all-vegan joint also has some stellar menu items for lunch and dinner—burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, fried oyster mushroom wings, fries, shakes, and more.

Nic’s On Beverly

Beverly Grove

This plant-based restaurant never fails to impress us with their mouthwatering bites—from breakfast to dessert! Their classic breakfast sandwich is the restaurant’s upscale, all-vegan take on a nostalgic McDonald’s sando. It comes with a folded JUST Egg, sausage patty, shallot potato cake, slice of melted American cheese, habanada aioli, and a side of breakfast potatoes. Their new limited-edition waffle breakfast sandwich, The Waffler, features a folded JUST Egg, tempeh bacon, slice of American cheese, and jalapeño aioli. It’s served with the most drool-worthy brown butter maple sauce and a side of potatoes. You can’t go wrong with either (or both)!
