We all know that the true tell-tale sign of a brilliant breakfast joint is how they can whip up a bacon and egg roll. It’s a hungover Sunday must, a tradie staple, and a no-brainer when it comes to feasting on the go at your local market.
As simple as they seem, there’s a lot to consider when it comes to assessing a bacon and egg roll: bread roll density, desired egg runniness, bacon crispness, the condiment combo and, of course, whether cheese has a role to play, for starters.

The Best Bacon And Egg Rolls In Sydney, According To You
This iconic New York-style spot is all about deli classics with a Euro twist that reflects the owners' heritage, and their all-day menu that complements their loaded sandwiches very much ticks that box. Frank's Deli swaps out the usual bacon for Polish speck (mega juicy, slabbed between a milk bun with fluffy folded egg and gooey cheese. Pair it with a mega-nourishing bone broth to get through the day feeling like you have superpowers.
Bowens' At Orange Grove Markets
Bowen’s bacon and egg roll has gone down as one of the most legendary feeds in Sydney. You’ll find them at Orange Grove Organic Food Markets in Lilyfield from 9am to 1pm every Saturday. It sticks to the real essence of what makes a bacon and egg roll bloody great and has the tell-tale sign of an iconic Sydney feed: a hefty queue (but it is absolutely worth the wait). Filled with crackling bacon and soft egg, the best part of this experience looks like a self-serve sauce station where you can go to town (free of judgement) on your ideal combo of tomato, BBQ, and Tabasco sauce.
Bondi And Cronulla
Blackwood Pantry is the type of early morning breakfast joint that just makes you feel 10 times better. Maybe it’s the beach vibes, maybe it’s the colourful menu or maybe, just maybe, it’s the damn delicious bacon and egg roll with double-smoked bacon, a fried egg, cheddar, sriracha and lime mayo, crispy shallots on a toasted potato bun—you can even double down on the egg, bacon and cheese if you really have a hole to fill.
Known for its rustic, seasonal pastries and epic sandwiches, the breaky sanga at Saga is guaranteed to start your day on a high note. Think bacon, a fried egg, hash browns, house-made BBQ sauce and pimento cheese on their pillow-soft white bread. Chuck a salted honey tart on your order for the ultimate breaky indulgence.
The North Spoon
This charming garden-inspired eatery is big on plating up fresh breakfast and lunch feeds, with one clear menu standout that has quietly earned itself a rep for being one of Sydney's greatest bacon and egg rolls. The North Spoon's take is a hot concoction of fluffy scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, zingy sriracha mayo, and stringy cheddar cheese, all sandwiched between two soft slices of Turkish bread. Want to try and whip it up at home? We’ve got the recipe here.
This pumping breakfast spot down a charming laneway can do no wrong, and their bacon and egg roll is no exception. Pina's additions of harissa adds a bit of punch, while the perfectly silky eggs and crispy bacon tick all the usual boxes. You can even add kale if you're feeling in need of some *balance*.
We love Stoneground Bakery for a number of reasons, including their Greek biscuits (paximathia and koulourakia), and the fact they’ve honed in on what makes a bacon and egg roll magnificent in its simplest form: think a Stoneground brioche bun with rasher bacon, egg, and either creamy aioli, BBQ sauce, or tomato relish, coming in under a tenner. Feeling bougie? They also do a benny burger with bacon, a poached egg, spinach and hollandaise.
This beloved roastery-turned-cafe churns out super satisfying breakfasts, including a mean take on the go-to bacon and egg roll. Single O's is on a milk bun, nestling a fried egg, bacon, coffee-infused "red eye" mayo and apple ketchup for a unique take on the classic we all know and love.
