Starbucks Quietly Debuts Breakfast Burritos Nationwide

Starbucks is tailor made to be a go-to breakfast spot, what with their coffee, bagels, and pastries. Now they’ve added a menu item that was a glaring omission for some time, and seems like an obvious acquisition.

A breakfast burrito.

Starbucks just added a Bacon, Sausage and Egg Wrap, and a Southwest Veggie Wrap, making sure to please both meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.

While they’re called “wraps” there’s no question these are breakfast burritos. If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a breakfast burrito.

The meaty breakfast wrap contains bacon, sausage, cage-free scrambled egg, cheddar cheese and even sous vide potatoes, all within a flour tortilla.

The veggie version opts for a bright red “salsa tortilla,” with eggs, black beans, sous vide potatoes, pico de gallo, jalapeno cream cheese and cotija cheese nestled within.

Believe it or not, they’re decently priced at $5.45 per burrito in Southern California, and are a little bigger than you’d expect.

They’re definitely not as girth-y as Chipotle’s burritos, but aren’t as small as your typical frozen burrito. They sit somewhere in between, and we’re here for it.

As far as flavor, they could use some salt, or a dab of your favorite salsa, but they’re not terrible by Starbucks standards.

Like most foods at Starbucks, they are pre-packaged, so don’t expect the fresh experience of a handmade burrito, but they’ll do the job when you’re short on time and want a quick breakfast burrito fix.
