69. Breakfast Sandwich from Lux Central

Although most people would say the main attraction at Lux is eyeing fellow patrons as they walk in and out of the always busy cafe, there's more to this spot than just some pretty faces. If you find yourself not up for the hassle of making breakfast one weekend morning, Lux will be there with Dutch pancakes and veggie scrambles and, our favorite, the breakfast sandwich.
The breakfast sandwich, which is $6.50, isn't some innovative breakfast marvel. It's simple, straightforward, and tasty. After all, what more do you really want in the morning than a fried egg, smoky, crunchy pepper bacon, tomato, and cheese, all perfectly encased by a crispy, buttered english muffin? That's what we thought.
Sure, you'll probably have to wait in line about ten minutes and then wait another 30 before your food is ready as the steady stream of orders flood the Lux kitchen, but it beats doing dishes later.
