This week I want to hear your opinion on Canberra’s Best Bacon and Egg Roll. You’re either a lover or a hater, but for all you lovers of that bacon and runny egg goodness (I personally like a bit of cheese and BBQ sauce) – where is your go to spot when you want a bacon and egg roll that will hit the spot every time.

What’s Your opinion?

First of all it’s an EGG and bacon roll.

Second of all, the perfect E’n’B roll has no place for cheese!

My vote goes for the local near where I work, the Snack Shack on Yallourn Street in Fyshwick. They have a ready supply of soft and fluffy white buns which is just as important as the runny egg and yummy bacon. I like mine topped off with some pepper and tomato sauce.

I don’t think there is such a thing (Best Bacon & Egg Roll) in Canberra.
I had one at the National Museum a couple of weekends ago and it was very ordinary (and expensive due to Sunday surcharge). I guess I should be grateful they were even open.
Without doubt, the best B&E roll available is from the Cooma Cafe (OK, it’s not Canberra).
The bacon is cooked quickly on a large plancha with a big egg on a huge lightly toasted and buttered bread bun.
Best served with fried onions and BBQ sauce.
There are still some takeaways in Canberra that refuse to cut the rind off the bacon which ruins the pleasure of eating due to the risk of choking.
I would be very happy to hear from other Rioters as to where to obtain a good takeaway B&E roll in Canberra that is under $10.

Heaps of good ones in the city, Central Burger District in Braddon is great, Pyschodeli is also very good (one of theirs will fill you up until dinnertime). Sugacube on Mort street used to do a good one too but haven’t had one from there for a while, and finally Blue Olive is also very good.

While I am a fan of the good old ‘hot off the barbie’ version at the netball on a Saturday morning, I must say the most satisfying B&E I have found to date is from Cream in Civic. Not for the purists, it includes tomato, lettuce, avocado, aioli and relish and is, quite frankly, delicious. And at $8 for a B&E and a coffee for their morning special it’s also a bargain (unlike most menu items at Cream!).

Not usually big on franchise food but Burger Edge in the Canberra Centre does a good one.

My teenaged son is on his own quest for the best bacon and egg roll. So far his top rated is Stand By Me Cafe in Lyons. Reckons the cafe at the National Museum is pretty good too. I’ll have to trust him, I’m allergic to eggs.

The bacon and egg roll at This Cafe in Gungahlin is pretty good.. to the point that I get one nearly once a week on the weekend.

They’re a good size, mega amounts of bacon, 2 eggs (no runny yolk though thanks.. why would you voluntarily have egg yolk running down your wrists?), a couple of slices of cheese and bbq sauce. The roll is a parmesan roll that looks to be similar (if not the very thing) as the ones from Bakers Delight.

Mmm, so good.

Has to be Ona Coffe in Fyshwick. MASSIVE! with cheese and bbq sauce. $10 though. A good value for money option is at the little café at Curtin shops (not red brick espresso or the takeaway) for $5.

The RUC at Barton is very good, Runny egg and soft buns they have a standard and a deluxe. Both are under 10

While not strictly Canberra, for those who like to spend weekends at the snow, the bacon n egg roll at Frostbite kiosk near the top of High Noon in Thredbo is to die for, and comes with the best view around. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Get there before 10.30 for a coffee/roll combo discount.

Everything about their E&B roll is good…except the bun. I don’t know whether it’s a brioche bun or not, but it’s waaaay too sweet. Ruins the whole thing.
