New York Although the last thing anyone wants to do Sunday morning is move from their I-had-too-much-whiskey-last-night-and-now-I-have-a-headache zone by the bed/couch/bathroom, we promise it'll be a worthy and invigorating trip to get one of these five breakfast sandwiches.

Ship's Biscuit at Saltie: This one sandwich may completely change your opinion about the necessity of breakfast meat on every single morning-after-partying meal. It sounds so simple, but it's so amazing: soft-scrambled eggs, ricotta, and focaccia.
Porchetta at Maialino: Their chef knows how to keep things going 'til 4am, so you know they're going to have a bomb Sunday morning option. Enter the Porchetta, loaded with roast pork and fried eggs. It's more of a meal than a light, early-morning snack.
Potato & Eggs at Defonte's: This bad-boy from one of NYC's best and oldest sandwich shops replenishes you with fresh-baked Italian bread, potatoes, eggs, and mozzarella, plus you've also got the option to add Virginia ham... likely an option you've never not taken.

The Breakfast Sandwich at Mile End: It's kind of like a bodega sandwich, but about a billion times better, with fried eggs, house bacon, and aged cheddar. Also: they probably don't even microwave the roll.
From the guy behind BK fave General Green, this New American's bistro decor includes an arched tin ceiling, a worn copper bar, white tiled booths, and a central oyster bar, whose platters'll back up options like the Triple Fry.
You can get a sandwich at almost any bodega, but it’s hard to come by complex creations like the ones at Caroline Fidanza's nautical-themed hole-in-the-wall. Saltie's speciality is salt-dusted focaccia sandwiches filled with briny meats and pickled vegetables, but the all-day menu also includes house-made sweets like caraway and pumpkin seed oatmeal cookies and fruit galettes. Sandwich-wise, go for the Balmy, which tastes ethereal in any weather and is filled with a vinegary symphony of chicken liver pate, ham, jalapeños, pickled vegetables, and mayonnaise.
If you're looking for a hearty and filling meal, look no further than the Little Chef located at the Gotham West Market.
Mile End Deli doesn’t fit neatly into a single category, serving non-kosher Jewish French-Canadian comfort food with a hipster twist. And yet, ironically but un-ironically, this has solidified it in the hearts of New Yorkers. Well, that and the absurdly succulent smoked meat. The meat masterminds here have crafted a true tour de force de fries -- poutine with cheese curds, chicken gravy, and the option to add smoked brisket (do it).
Danny Meyer's Roman paean inside the Gramercy Park Hotel, Mai's a cream-walled, wood beamed spot split into a casual front bar and a slightly more formal rear "trattoria" by pastry/bread/coffee stations and a white marble salumi bar.
This family-owned sandwich shop has been in the biz since 1922 and serves up beautifully breaded creations like the Valentino with fried eggplant, provolone & roasted peppers, and their version of the Cuban, with roast pork, Virginia ham, swiss, and pickles, served up on garlic bread.
