Visitors can now order giardiniera-topped breakfast sandwiches at one of the city’s most popular delis. Sammich, the Burnside sandwich shop known for its Chicago Italian beef and house-made pastrami, is now serving breakfast starting at 10 a.m., switching to just lunch sandwiches at 2 p.m. The breakfast menu includes sandwiches like the Breakfast at Wrigley, an everything bagel with house brined and smoked bacon, melted American cheese, house giardiniera, and a fried egg. The vegetarian sandwich on the menu includes fried egg, avocado, and melted provolone and cheddar cheese, plus chimichurri and arugula. Customers can also build their own protein, egg, and cheese, with options like house-smoked bacon and black forest ham.

In 2013, Sammich owner Melissa McMillan opened her first restaurant in Ashland, followed by a Portland food cart; in 2017, the Portland location transformed into a brick-and-mortar sandwich shop. Now, Sammich operates locations in Ashland, Portland, and Lebanon.
