We all know that Starbucks is famous for coffee and drinks, and may not pay that much attention to its food menu offerings.
Zooming in on its “Mornings Made Better” items, I noted more than 10 offerings, including Breakfast Pancakes, Egg Mayo & Cheese Multigrain Croissant, Chicken Ham & Cheddar Cheese Toast, to Egg White, Roasted Pepper, Mushroom & Cheddar Wrap.
They have gone beyond sandwiches and croissants, making choosing a little harder with their bagels, panini, pita bread, and healthy wraps. Items are available from breakfast, for all-day enjoyment. Great as lunch options too.
Plus, if you are a Starbucks® Rewards member, you are in for a treat.

Pair the food up with your fave Starbucks drink or try something entirely unexpected so that the choices don’t end there.
If you do not know what to have, here are 5 Starbucks food items and recommended drink pairings:
1. Turkey Bacon, Spinach & Egg Panini
Start your busy day with a savoury trio of crispy turkey bacon, blanched spinach, and poached eggs, laden with a bright and buttery rich hollandaise sauce.
Everything’s snug within a panini fold over – complete with soft, fluffy texture, ready for a coffee pairing.
Why not pair it with a classic cup of Latte?
Take personalisation to the next level as you switch up regular milk with Soy, Coconut, and now, Oat Milk – Starbucks latest non-dairy substitute.
This is for those who love the milky semblance in your drink without the actual dairy. The oat milk doesn’t add extra flavours to your coffee, and makes the latte creamy and rich.
Tweak as much as you like by adding espresso shots, syrups, or adjusting the level of sweetness to your preferred taste or none at all. I usually go for no sugar, to enjoy the coffee on its own.
2. Truffle Scrambled Egg, Chicken, Kale & Cheese Wrap
Experience an explosion of flavours when you combine scrambled eggs infused with the heady aroma of truffle, tender slices of chicken breast, super food kale and shredded cheeses – all embraced by a warm and toasty soft whole wheat tortilla.
Make it a perfect match with an order of Pure Matcha Latte, a smooth and creamy drink made with premium micro ground green tea.
Now you can customise your drink even further.
Customers can actually control how much sweetness you want in your drink (yes, even for Matcha Latte), or make it totally sugar-free.
While the Matcha Latte without sugar could taste earthy, some would enjoy that unadulterated flavour.
Love Soy Milk? Tell the barista to replace the steamed milk to soy dairy alternative, and available hot and iced too. It’s your call.
3. Chicken Ham, Egg White & Tomato Wholemeal Bagel
Have a meal on-the-go with a wholemeal bagel filled with a healthy mix of lean chicken ham, egg white, and sliced white cheese, made healthier and crunchier with cherry tomatoes and fresh lettuce.
For your drink, get from the refreshing Teavana drinks range, such as a glass of Iced Shaken Hibiscus Tea, lightly sweetened and hand-shaken with ice.
Be rejuvenated at the same time with the bright floral notes of hibiscus, and lush pearls that are bursting with pomegranate juice.
You can also add those pomegranate pearls to other drinks for that additional bite.
4. Chicken Ham & Cheese Panwich
My personal favourite of the breakfast items. Panwich = pancakes + sandwich.
A cross between a pancake and sandwich, this panwich features two breakfast favourites in one delicious plate.
Get two soft and fluffy buttery pancakes sandwiching black pepper-flavoured chicken ham and egg.
The pancakes were slightly on the sweet side, which complemented well with the savoury fillings.
Take a leisurely breakfast and pair your panwich with Starbucks Cold Brew, slow-steeped in cool water for more than 10 hours to extract the full flavour of African and Latin American coffees.
Handcrafted in small batches, this type of brew never comes in contact with hot water and heightens the naturally sweet flavour developed during cold brewing
A recommended topping is the velvety smooth cold foam, or the house-made vanilla sweet cream for extra smoothness.
5. Scrambled Egg & Turkey Ham Pita
This soft and chewy Middle Eastern and Mediterranean bread encapsulates a mix of fluffy and cheesy scrambled eggs and slices of lean turkey ham, creamy mayo, and power boosted with kale.
Complement this pita sandwich with Cocoa Oat Macchiato, a spanking new and dairy-free rendition of the popular Macchiato made with Oatly (the original Swedish oat drink company) oat drink.
Sip this drink hot or iced, sporting its trademark crosshatch design with a handcrafted drizzling of caramel sauce.
There is a slightly chocolatey flavour and if you love Mocha, this could be your new-found favourite too.
