A quick, cheap, and easy egg-and-cheese sandwich, with all of those protein-rich calories to fuel the day’s early hours, is sometimes all you want. But at many breakfast joints, ordering one can yield a disappointing rib-sticker made of marginal ingredients—insubstantial white toast, runny American pseudo-cheese, and pressed mystery meat masquerading as sausage. For a few dollars more at XS, you get two fried eggs (yolks broken) between two oversized pieces of toasted, tangy sourdough bread, with a healthy helping of flavor-popping cheddar cheese and two top-shelf grilled sausage patties. The folks at XS call it the Sunrise Panini Melt ($6.95), and it comes with a side of fruit salad. A truly satisfying breakfast sandwich.
