Eggs Benedict is a staple at most brunch restaurants. This deliciously rich breakfast treat is best oozing with yellow yolks, and doused in a healthy amount of creamy hollandaise sauce. Not all Eggs Benny are the same, however, and many of our local establishments like to put a bit of a twist on the typical English muffin, peameal bacon combination.
Toast and Jam makes their Benny on their own fresh baked Italian bread; Megalos, Aqua Terra and The Iron Duke have a variation that replaces the bacon with salmon; Tommy’s mixes things up with spinach and feta; Pan Chancho offers up savoury brioche over the usual English muffin, and Le Chien Noir changes things up with a biscuit and the option of ham, sausage or Montreal smoked meat. Of course, the tried and true classic Eggs Benedict can be found at many local restaurants like The Cavalier Room, Star Diner and Windmills, to name a few.
As you probably know, especially if you’ve checked out our Guide to Breakfast, there are more restaurants serving up breakfast in Kingston than we could possibly include in today’s list. So, we’ve decided to stick with some of our favourite, locally owned establishments. So, tell us:
