5 must-try Eggs Benedict in Toronto

Eggs Benedict is a staple at many of Toronto's best brunch restaurants. While the traditional offering usually includes peameal bacon, poached eggs, English muffin and Hollandaise, the creative interpretations on this list employ substitutes like donuts, waffles and cajun spices.

Here are my picks for must-try Eggs Benedict in Toronto.
