What is the Best Breakfast Sandwich in Duxbury?
Breakfast sandwiches are an important part of high schoolers’ lives. I eat at least two or three breakfast sandwiches a week and they are something I thoroughly enjoy. There are mornings I’m in a rush and don’t have time to make something and I can always rely on a breakfast sandwich to taste good and get me through the day. I have decided to find the best breakfast sandwich in Duxbury based on taste, price and how long it took to make. The four places I am looking at are Dunkin’ Donuts, French Memories, Foodsmith and Gunther Tooties.

Dunkin’ Donuts is a classic in Duxbury. It has been something I could always count on to be tasty and quick; if you do drive through it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes. A sausage, egg and cheese sandwich on a croissant with hashbrowns is $5.89 which I think is a great deal compared to other restaurants in town. I did the drive-thru option and it was definitely fast. I thought contents were standard, nothing impressive, but the croissant was a little soggy. The hash browns were a bonus too, and I honestly thought they were better than the sandwich! The seasoning was tasty and they were piping hot.
Address: 459 Washington Street
The next sandwich I had was at French Memories. I got a sausage, egg and cheese on a croissant which was $5.99, 10 cents more than Dunkin’ Donuts. The wait was about 5 minutes but the wait time definitely depends on how busy the bakery is. Before school is a great time to go because it is right before rush hour. Sometimes in the middle of the day it can be up to 10 minutes. I thought the sandwich was great, the croissant was good and the filling was nice and warm. I overall thought the sandwich was better than Dunkin’ Donuts although it was a little more pricey.

Next I went to Foodsmith which is in Halls Corner in Duxbury. I ordered a sausage, egg and cheese with avocado on an english muffin. This came out to $6.00 which is about the same price as French Memories. The avocado was a great touch and I thought the sandwich was the best so far. The contents seemed fresh and the sandwich as a whole had much more flavor than the others. I liked how the egg was cooked then and there rather than being frozen and cooked. The wait time was about 5 minutes which is similar to the others.
Address: 10 Washington Street
The final sandwich I had was from Gunther Tooties. I had a sausage, egg and cheese on a plain bagel which came out to $5.30 and that price point makes it the most affordable option. The wait time was really fast but it can be really long at rush hour times. These rush times are normally 9 am to 11 am but weekends are busy all day. This has been my go-to sandwich for most of high school and it is always really good. The bagel is really filling and keeps me energized throughout the day.
Overall, I thought the best sandwich was at Foodsmith. The price was fair for what I received, the wait was short and the sandwich was great. The avocado was something that the other places didn’t have and I thought it made the sandwich better than the others. If you want the best breakfast sandwich in Duxbury, go to Foodsmith!
