Starbucks is often a lifesaver when we need a quick caffeine pick-me-up. For most of us, our go-to order is already memorized, so we simply breeze through the line and are on our way. Coffee isn't the only thing Starbucks does well, though--they're pretty darn good at breakfast, too. There are 16 items on Starbucks' hot breakfast menu in the U.S., and each one is as good as the last. As someone who regulars Starbucks as a breakfast spot, I've tried nearly every one at some point or another. Whether you're feeling like oatmeal, a fruity parfait, or a piping hot breakfast sandwich, they've got you covered.
Among the newest additions to the breakfast menu at Starbucks is the Smoked Shoulder Bacon Breakfast Sandwich, which features layers of smoked pork shoulder bacon, a fried egg patty, and dollop of of sun-dried tomato cream cheese to top it off — oh, and it's served on parmesan-crusted Texas toast-style bread. Breakfast sandwiches are the quintessential items on the menu, but trust me, they're really good. Like, I've-had-two-in-one-day-before good. Some of Starbucks' breakfast choices aren't getting the hype they deserve — read on to find out which bites you have to try to make the most important meal of the day even better.
