As a tradie and a motorcyclist, the egg and bacon roll plays a big part of my life. My current go-to on the north side is Elaine’s pies in Dickson. Tony does me a mean double egg runny on a delicious roll for $7.

If in Fyshwick I tend to head to Cafe 126(?) on Gladstone st in the little alley that runs past BBQ’s galore. Again, it’s the bun that makes a roll stand out. Holland arise sauce on these ones is something I do every now and again to treat myself.

Will definitely be trying some of these others though. My good spot in Woden closed down and I’m yet to find a replacement, and I don’t spend much time in Belco so haven’t got a regular over there.

My favourite was always Flat Heads Fish Cafe (O’Conner) before they closed. It was awesome! At $6.50 ($7.50 with a second egg) on a Continental roll. It wasn’t traditional and did include lettuce and tomato, but it was awesome.

Lately I’ve been looking for a great roll out in Belconnen. I’ve recently tried:
Cookery Nook (Hawker) $5.50 one egg, ok roll, too big for a single egg or even two eggs, which I should have asked for
Rock Salt (Hawker) $8.50 2 eggs lots of bacon well cooked, Ciabatta Roll (a bit like a small Turkish roll). Good size for the content, but I don’t like the roll for my B&E’s.
Little oink (Cook) $10 2 eggs, roll was ok, good bacon, tasty cheese (I don’t like cheese on my B&E) and a tomato chutney which was way too sweet.
Bruce Take away (Bruce) $6.00 ($7.00 with an extra egg) American hamburger style roll (bad), they put on a Kraft cheese single which didn’t improve the experience.
Retro Cafe (University of Canberra) $6.00 ($7.00 with an extra egg) large turkish roll which is too big.
Ricardo’s (Jamison) – $ ?? good, but on a large turkish roll.

I know its common, but I don’t think a Turkish roll has any place in a B&E. I’m happy with plane white roll, Vietnamese roll, continental roll, baguette, and many others! Just not a Turkish.

I will have to try (suggestions from facebook comments) Cafe of Telita St at UC and Chatterbox in Belconnen!!

Best BnE roll by far is EQ Cafe in Deakin, at the Equinox Building. 2 Eggs, plenty of awesome fresh bacon, onion and a nice soft brown roll with the choice of Tomato, BBQ or Chilli Jam for sauce…. The eggs are still soft and runny yummmmmmmmmmm

(no runny yolk though thanks.. why would you voluntarily have egg yolk running down your wrists?)

Haha, that’s why you need a soft bun, in part to catch the runny yolk.

I’ve been eating E’n’Bs for over 30 years and have never thought, gee, I hope the yolk isn’t runny in case it runs down my wrist. The runny yolk is a key part of the experience. May as well get a McMuffin if you want it all contained.

Unfortunately, for me, I usually only think about it when the yolk is spewing out of my roll all over my plate and half way down my hand. I also don’t really like runny yolk in general so asking for it cooked a little more is always preferable.

The Ona one is good, I’ll have to try sea salt and cream, they sound good.

But let’s get this straight, I’m not sure where you E&B people are from but it’s clearly a Bacon & Egg roll

Agreed.

Holden Caulfield’s egg, bacon, tomato sauce and pepper is $7.00.

It’s $4.80 from the Snack Shack in Fyshwick.

But, as the saying goes, quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so I’d be happy to find an extra $2.20 to sample a new E’n’B roll.

I reckon you should do a Big Breakfast Roll where you have bacon, two eggs, hash brown, tomato and sausages on a roll. That would be worth crossing town for

For a roll with everything and an extra egg, we’re not sure if you’re serious but we’ll do it for $11. 😉

The Tradesman’s Special is currently very popular: bacon, egg, cheese and a hash brown for $9.

The boss has also just invented the Eggs Benedict Burger which is bacon, poached egg, cheese, onion and a hollandaise sauce for $8.

Just use your imagination and we’ll find a way to make it work.

There’s nothing like a good egg n bacon roll. The Glasshouse at the foot of Industry House opposite the casino does a pretty good straight e’n’b roll, but their piece de resistance in breakfast terms is their Breakfast Roll, scrambled egg, spinach leaves, bacon, and relish, in a wrap. A little dearer than their straight roll, but worth the extra $$!.

At Downtown we love a bacon and egg roll almost as much as we love hiding in the office reading the RiotACT but what makes our rolls special is that they are completely custom made the way you like them!

For Canfan’s bacon, egg, cheese and BBQ sauce, served on a big soft bun the size of a baby’s head, we charge $7.50. You can choose from cheddar, jarlsberg, feta, cream cheese or shaved parmesan, and you might like to try a Turkish bread or long roll.

Holden Caulfield’s egg, bacon, tomato sauce and pepper is $7.00.

Our hot new breakfast treat is our bacon and egg “burger”: two eggs, bacon, tomato relish and rocket on a multigrain roll for $8.90. The most popular drinks with it are coke and coffee but we’re also running the cold pressed juicer and offering a selection of superfood boosters.

Personally I’m more of a salad roll and green juice with spirulina kinda girl but it takes all sorts. 🙂

DOBINSONS in Civic is by far the ultimate. Amazing. Freshly baked bread, epic amounts of bacon, optional bbq sauce.

Sometimes if I feel like it I get them to swap the eggs for avocado and that’s incredible too.

The Egg & Bacon roll at Jamossa (220 Northbourne Ave) is one of the better ones I’ve had in Canberra. The standard comes with aioli and bbq sauce on a cantina roll, but they also do regular weekly specials with various accompaniments and combinations, including the palpitation-inducing double egg/double bacon.

I go to Jamossa occasionally for a bacon and egg roll, but mostly because I don’t want to step into the takeaway on Lowanna.

They’re ok but you have to pay extra for cheese and the rolls are usually over toasted. Last time I had one the bottom of the roll was nearly black and the cheese had oozed out onto the paper bag.
