There's breakfast, and then there are breakfast sandwiches. At Downtown's The Parish, it's all about those sandwich creations when it comes to the morning meal.

Here, acclaimed chef Casey Lane (The Tasting Kitchen) is perfecting the art of breakfast on biscuits with tantalizing ingredient combos to serve in the more casual cafe section of his two-story full-service restaurant.

The breakfast sandwiches at The Parish run from the traditional, like the cheddar, eggs, bacon and avocado to the more playful and bold, like the Fried Chicken, Maple Dijon and Pickles. One simple standout is the Sage, Eggs, and Sausage, which features a robust piece of hearty, savory sausage that is miraculously not greasy but still hearty and satisfying.

As Lane recently explained on KCRW's "Good Food" program, one secret to the success of his breakfast sandwiches is the method of "scooping out" much of the insides of The Parish's tasty biscuits in order to accommodate the ample fresh fillings. This means not only are you saved from too many bread-centric bites (though the biscuits are good enough to not make that a bad thing) but your sandwich is less likely to fall apart at the first bite.

What may happen, mind you, is that you might fall in love with the sandwich on the first bite. And that's a pretty nice way to start the day.

The Parish also serves a selection of delicious coffees and various pastries in their cafe. Breakfast at The Parish is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to Noon and Saturdays and Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
