We wake up most mornings thinking about what seriously illegal things we would do to get our hands on a Devil’s Teeth Special Breakfast Sandwich. Moving violations, armed robbery, jaywalking. The simple biscuit packed with everything that is good in the world (eggs, bacon, avocado, cheese, aioli) is the best morning food we’ve ever consumed, and it’s worth a trip to the Sunset one thousand times over. Even better, it’s dirt cheap.
Simply put, this breakfast sandwich is the best thing to happen since Riley Curry’s birth.
The sandwich is constructed on a flaky, buttery, yet light biscuit. Step one towards perfection. The eggs are softly scrambled, and there is a solid half of an avocado mashed on top. (Adding avocado increases greatness of foods by 56.5%. Science.) The real kickers are the crispy bacon that manages to make it into almost every bite, the pepper jack cheese for a little kick, and the ultimate deal closer: lemon-garlic aioli that really takes it to the next level. The whole thing is warm and melty and doesn’t fall apart, thanks to the sturdiness of the biscuit. It is, from our research, a perfect breakfast sandwich.
Devil’s Teeth is a low-key and tiny storefront near Ocean Beach, with just a few seats inside. There are lots of benches outside, which are usually full of people eating breakfast sandwiches and other baked goods (many of which are worth your time as well). Food is mostly to-go, and the people who work there are friendly and always down to heat up your quiche or cinnamon roll for maximum enjoyment.
So pull on your most elastic waistband pants and get yourself to Devil’s Teeth this weekend (or tomorrow). Try to commit as few crimes as possible in the process. But if there’s an illegal left turn in your way, feel free to steamroll through that. This is an important sandwich. We’ll probably be there too, hopefully sans handcuffs.
This is the best breakfast sandwich we’ve ever had. There is an ample helping of bacon, melted pepper jack cheese for a little kick, a LOT of avocado, perfectly scrambled eggs, and a garlicky lemon aioli that brings it all home. The biscuit all of this is sandwiched on is buttery and light and we want to eat this every day forever until we die.
The Devil’s Teeth crew also makes an excellent quiche. There’s a meat option as well as a veggie option every day. Both are good, and they’ll heat it up for you if you ask nicely.
No frosting on this goliath, more of a brown sugar paste, and it is the best cinnamon roll around. It’s pretty dense, so probably get one to share with your crew. Also, napkins.
This is a great bowl of (or as it’s usually consumed, “cardboard box of”) eggs. But it’s also something you could very easily make at home. If you have health-conscious people with you, they’ll order this, immediately regret it, and have an incurable case of food envy. Not your problem.
You must get some cookies while you’re here, especially the absurdly good oatmeal raisin and ginger options. The peanut butter chocolate chip one isn’t our favorite, since the chips are sprinkled on top rather than baked in, but we wouldn’t NOT eat it.
