Fave Five: Best Eggs Benny

A good eggs Benedict can be hit or miss. Luckily, we consider ourselves brunch connoisseurs, and have done tons of research into what’s tops in Toronto. We’ll trek all over the city for a well-executed Benny. Here, we serve up some of our favourites:

A weekend staple for many of us, the Drake’s Eggs Benedict ($13) offers the classic favourite with eggs over smoked pork loin with a generous dollop of Hollandaise. There is also a delicious Eggs Caleb with smoked salmon. Enjoy it with a DIY Caesar you can share with your friends. 

While not a traditional Benny, the vegetarian Eggs Milestone ($9.99), a delicious combination of goat cheese, sliced Roma tomatoes and avocado salsa topped with hollandaise, makes it an easy brunch decision. Top it off with a Sunshine Mimosa and your weekend’s off to a great start. 

If you’re in the Leslieville area, Lady Marmalade has a great selection and offers a more decadent version with brie, avocado and bacon ($13.50). Enjoy it with your cup of joe and be sure to bring some bills – the restaurant only accepts cash. 

A Rosedale option is The Rebel House’s Rebellion Eggs ($10.75). Your choice of peameal bacon or smoked Atlantic salmon with a tangy fresh H-sauce. They offer a little Bailey’s in your morning coffee, a great addition to any breakfast choice. 

Out at Bloor and Landsdowne, The Bloordale Pantry has a great diner vibe and a Benny menu titled “Hello my name is Benny.” To set them apart, their eggs sit atop a house-made griddle scone and their Classic Benny with peameal bacon ($11.99) is an easy choice when we’re in the area. A glass of freshly squeezed juice tops off a well-rounded brunch.
