Breakfast Sandwich at Fox in the Snow Cafe

Go ahead, let Fox in the Snow's stunning array of pastries tempt you. But grab one to go. Why? Because their two-hander Breakfast Sandwich ($6)-made with fluffy eggs, bacon, arugula and a rich mustard sauce-is the best (and most filling) thing on the menu. 1031 N. Fourth St., Italian Village

Breakfast Biscuit at Philco Bar + Diner

The menu at this breakfast-all-day Short North joint is packed with flavorful options, but if you're hunting for a hearty start to your day, the Breakfast Biscuit ($6) does the trick. Spicy chorizo is stacked with a thick slab of chevre, a gooey fried egg and shallot preserves on a biscuit that's neither too sweet nor buttery. philcodiner.com

Latina at Katalina's

When ordering at this Harrison West favorite, opt for a dish with Katalina's famous sweet-and-spicy bacon. Like many Katalina's favorites, the Latina ($10.25)-fried egg, Amish cheddar and Snowville Creamery crema on warm sourdough-packs a punch. The addition of the bacon plus their homemade tomatillo sauce means you won't need to reach for the hot sauce. katalinascolumbus.com
