The Best Twists on Eggs Benny in Toronto

Eggs can be adventurous, too.

Are you sick of the same old eggs benny? Okay, maybe that’s impossible. But being open-minded is important. So here is where to try delicious variations on the breakfast classic in Toronto.
 
THE BARQUE BENEDICT AT BARQUE STEAKHOUSE

For $14, this smokehouse will make you a benny creation with cornbread, poached eggs, and barbecue hollandaise sauce. It wouldn’t be Barque without the meat: you’ve got the option of smoked brisket or smoked salmon.
 
BETTY’S BENEDICT AT UNCLE BETTY’S
Uncle Betty's
Betty’s Benedict is an extremely decadent spin on the traditional egg benny, made with a base of freshly fried Dressen’s donuts and topped with peameal bacon, poached eggs, and creamy lemon-hinted hollandaise for $12. Our mouths are watering.
 
THE FABBRICA BENNY AT FABBRICA
Fabbrica
Feel like Italian for breakfast? Fabbrica’s eggs benny is made with poached eggs, prosciutto, hollandaise sauce, guanciale, and a fontina crumpet, for $16. Bellissimo.
 
THE SAMMY BENNY AT STARVING ARTIST
Starving Artist
Here, you have the luxury of eggs benny on mini waffles with smoked salmon on top for $11.50. Variations can take off the smoked salmon, or serve the dish with potato waffles. Two breakfast foods in one? We think yes.
 
THE MEMPHIS AT INSOMNIA CAFE
Insomnia
This Bloor Street restaurant has a whole section on their menu dedicated to the great eggs benedict. Their toppings range from chipotle pulled pork on the $13 Memphis to avocado and tomato on the Isabelle, also $13. They have an answer for eggs benny lovers of all varieties.
 
THE EGGS BRISTOL AT BRISTOL CAFE
Bristol
This British and Indian fusion spot serves their $13 benny with brined and smoked pork loin on baked scones with bristol sauce, grilled tomato, arugula, and homefries.
 
EGGS BENEDICT AT OLIVER & BONACINI CAFE GRILL

This eatery donates $1 from their eggs benny sales to Fife House, a Toronto charity that provides support and housing for those living with HIV/AIDS. And, as an incentive to be charitable, they serve their $14 benny on a buttermilk and cheddar scone.
