Well, actually I think you could beat it if their breakfast sandwiches weren’t so consistently disappointing. Their sausage egg and cheese on an English muffin is puzzlingly inferior to the all-time king of breakfast sandwiches: McDonald’s Egg McMuffin.
But what am I going to do- go to McDonald’s and try their Jailhouse Blend coffee? I haven’t tried their coffee in years but it saddens me to think of starting the day with a cup of McDonald’s coffee.
My perfect morning combo? A Starbucks Caffe Americano with a McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin with Egg. Attainable in nearly a single stop at select airports- like Logan’s Terminal B on the (dreaded) US Airways side. It almost makes flying the Greyhound of airlines tolerable.
Wait — I guess you can beat a hot cup of Dunkin’ on a cool New England morning. But it’ll do quite nicely in a pinch.
