Calling all runny egg lovers! What beats two gooey, golden eggs with crispy bacon on two toasted muffins, topped off with thick and creamy hollandaise sauce? Nothing. Eggs Benny is everything we need in life. And whenever they’re on the brunch menu: we order them.
Why are Eggs Benedict so popular these days? Unless you’re an experienced chef yourself, we know (we tried, we failed) they’re pretty hard to make. It’s easy to ruin poached eggs. And therefore, it’s a real treat when your Eggs Benedict served perfectly on a plate. Call it a fancy-schmancy treat. Also: it’s the satisfaction of watching the yolk spill under my knife that never gets boring. Last but not least: there are many variations that are worth trying too. Did anyone say salmon and avo? Yasssss.

Good to know: Bakers & Roasters is foodie heaven, but make sure to que for at least 40 minutes if you haven’t made a reservation.
