Mike and Patty’s is a little sandwich oasis tucked away amongst the rows of apartment buildings in Bay Village. Serving breakfast and lunch out of a tiny space on the corner of Fayette and Church St., this place gets my vote for the best egg sandwiches in Boston. I’m not even sure another place comes close. Maybe 8 or so seats indoors and a couple outdoor tables sum up the accommodations, but there are also several benches around the neighborhood that provide a nice quiet spot to savor your sandwich. I got the bacon and egg, fancy. The egg was perfectly cooked with a soft but not runny yolk. The melty cheese didn’t harden even after several minutes. The bread was soft and delicious. The mayo added moisture and a little tartness. The avocado lent its creaminess. The bacon, it’s crunch and saltiness. And above all, the sandwich held together beautifully with every bite. The construction of most egg sandwiches leaves much to be desired – things fall out, certain components are more difficult to bite through than others, etc.. not here. And I didn’t even feel half bad after devouring it. This is the kind of egg sandwich doctors should prescribe for hangovers. The incredibly friendly service adds to the charm and appeal of Mike and Patty’s.
If you live anywhere within walking distance this makes a nice little sunday morning destination. And if you happen to have two unfathomably adorable puppy-faced cutie pies, then bring them along and enjoy your sandwich outdoors. I can’t wait to go back and try out the rest of the menu.
