Who hasn’t woken up on a Saturday morning (hungover or not) and started jonesing for a breakfast sandwich, only to realize that practically nothing is open before noon and you don’t really have the desire for a three hour boozefest brunch extravaganza? That’s where the new Taylor Gourmet on 14th street comes to the rescue: they’re doing breakfast on weekends and they’re doing it right.

Starting February 4th, you can grab (or have delivered–hoagies in your PJs!) an array of breakfast hoagies at the 14th Street location. If you’re impatient and are in the mood for breakfast at 3 AM after all the bars have closed down, Taylor Gourmet’s got your back on that one too. The restaurant will have breakfast hoagies available on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 PM til 3:30 AM and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 AM til 10:30 AM. Doug Rashid, the man behind @Taylor_Gourmet and some of the restaurant’s PR, said that for now they’re going to start with the breakfast option at the 14th Street location and then evaluate whether or not they’ll extend it to the others throughout the city.

The lineup for the breakfast menu includes some highlights, such as the Aramingo Avenue hoagie (bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, American cheese, egg and a homemade beer cheese sauce), the Reed Street (pepperoni, egg and sharp provolone), the Queen lane (sausage, broccoli rabe, egg and sharp provolone) and one for the vegetarians out there, the Lehigh (eggplant, egg and mozzarella). Also, don’t pass up the risotto balls stuffed with sausage, bacon, Taylor pork roll and cheese. I recommend dipping that, no, smothering it, in the beer cheese sauce as well.

She loves eating at white-tablecloth-three-forks-at-your-place-setting restaurants, but she’ll also be the first to suggest we scarf down some chili dogs at 2 am.
