Big Star Sandwich Co. is known for making lunch a next-level experience with their fresh ingredients, amped-up heat and magical combinations.

Now the New West-based company has dropped an entire breakfast menu, featuring epic sandwiches clocking in at $4.50-6.50 each. The new a.m. sammies are:

  • Egg and cheddar
  • Egg, ham and cheddar
  • Egg sausage and cheddar
  • Egg, corned beef and swiss
  • Egg, bacon and cheddar
  • Egg, capocollo and habanero jack

Big Star is known for its fresh rustic filone bread and when you combine that with bacon and we don’t blame you if you’ve stopped reading this to Google where the nearest Big Star is.

But in case you need some help with that, whle the sandwich shop who lured in actor Liam Neeson with free eats has locations in Burnaby, Richmond, South Surrey, Surrey Central, Maple Ridge, as well as their original New Westminster outpost, they’re only serving up breakfast these days in New West and Burnaby.
