eating a delicious and satisfying breakfast without going broke is totally possible in williamsburg…, gourmet breakfast sandwiches, tex-mex breakfast tacos and classic eggs benedict can all be found for under $10.

tobys estate coffee’s scrambled egg on a roll ($7.50) sounds simple enough, until you read the ingredients: scrambled egg with aged vermont cheddar, espresso-lacquered bacon and slow-roasted tomatoes. that’s right, espresso-lacquered bacon!

whirly bird’s no.1 breakfast taco ($3.50) is on the underground gourmet’s cheap list for good reason.  i definitely recommend getting the no.1 with chorizo for an extra $1

“corn tortillas, griddled in corn oil until they’re crisp and wavy. inside, fluffy egg scrambled with Oaxaca cheese mingles with a hot stewed salsa of multicolored peppers and tomatoes. to finish, a brisk sprinkle of cilantro and a crumbling of jalapeño potato chips.” – ny mag

beco’s egg’s benedict ($9) is certainly not to be missed. i swear their hollandaise sauce has a secret ingredient, and the side of potato pancake is a nice unexpected touch. a pre fixe ($14.95) is also offered, with the choice of any entree served with an espresso drink and a choice of bloody mary, pineapple-mint caipirinha, guava or caju fruit mimosa or passionfruit caipiroska
