Maybe I am the only one that was curious, but I had to check out the new Subway breakfast menu. For being in South Mpls I am always a bit bummed that the only food establishment that is within an easy walking distance is Subway. I feel this responsibility to frequent it at least once a month. Maybe if people go here other restaurants will open?? That is my reasoning and dream.

A lazy Sunday finally found its way into my schedule so I thought I would start the morning with a brisk walk to Subway and try out this new menu. There are 5 different breakfast sandwiches you can choose from, I settled on the basic egg and cheese. For $1.75 I could order the English muffin and for a bit more you could get it served on a flat bread or other Subway sandwich bread.

So the positives, the egg is an egg white omelet and the English muffin is a light wheat. So if you are looking to beat the McDonald’s Egg McMuffin in calories and fat, the Subway sandwich will do it. The Subway egg and cheese is 4 grams of fat vs the McMuffin egg and cheese which is 12 grams of fat. The Subway breakfast sandwich also gives you the option of adding any of the toppings that are available to you when ordering a normal build your own sandwich, so you can easily add in some veggies to the mix. The refrigerator case has also expanded to include things like juice, yogurt, and apple slices.

However, we all want to know if it is worth it, right? I guess if I was on a road trip, saw a Subway on the side of the road and needed a quick to-go breakfast I would consider ordering it again, but I won’t make a point to walk there again for breakfast. The English muffin was  cardboard and I couldn’t taste the egg omelet. I would recommend spending more to try the flatbread and adding some veggies to ramp up the flavors. Or maybe what I am really recommending is finding a few friends, heading to a yummy brunch location and really starting the day right!

Breakfast served til 11am.
