These Toronto restaurants are serving unique spins on eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict in Toronto is a favourite on many brunch menus in the city. There's classic versions that top two halves of an English muffin with Canadian bacon, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce to more unusual version that take the beloved Benny to new heights with nontraditional ingredients. 

Here's where to find unique spins on eggs Benedict in Toronto.

Le Petit Dejeuner

This authentic Belgian spot on King East has graced both of our best of lists for eggs Benedict and waffles.

In fact, their bestselling Waffle Benny combines both and comes in five variations topped with everything from spinach to peameal bacon, starting at $17.

Dirty Food

Goodbye, English muffin. Hello, johnnycakes!  

For its Salmon Jonny ($22), Dirty Food in the Junction uses two cornmeal buttermilk pancakes as a bed for perfectly poached eggs and cured smoked salmon, that's doused with hollandaise sauce and topped with crispy capers and dill.

Huevos Gourmet

Eggs Benny fans should not skip over this Etobicoke spot especially if they love Mexican flavours, because this is where both a nacho and a taco Benedict exists for under $20.

The taco Benny features both cactus and sauteed mushrooms served in a soft corn tortilla with poached eggs, a roasted red pepper hollandaise and a dash of Tobasco.

The nachos Benny tops tortilla chips with poached eggs, jalapeños, black olives, hollandaise sauce and a generous amount of cheese.

Bonjour Brioche

This popular French bakery cafe in Riverside has an exclusive entrée only available on weekends: the Bonjour Benny ($17).

Served on a golden croissant, its eggs Benedict comes topped with a choice of veggies, salmon or peameal bacon. Bonus: they're served with a side of baguette.

Revelstoke Cafe

Being a plant-based cafe, Revelstoke in Cabbagetown has mastered some very interesting twists on classic eggs Benedict. Their version of Classic Benny ($18) uses black salt tofu, seitan peameal and seasoned tomatoes. It's topped with vegan hollandaise. 

Another option we'd recommend for the more adventurous is the Jack Benny ($18), which tops a toasted English muffin with smokey BBQ jackfruit, fresh avocado, vegan hollandaise and house slaw.

Starving Artist Mount Pleasant

While the name doesn't give away much, the B. Benny at this local breakfast chain is a menu staple at all five locations including the one on Mount Pleasant. 

The famed dish is essentially a potato waffles eggs Benedict that's finished with caramelized bacon, eggs, hollandaise and lightly garnished with chives.

Sisters & Co.

This hot Toronto brunch spot on Dundas West is known for serving food with an Asian flare and serves Bennys that are anything but basic.

Meat lovers should check out their Char Siu Benedict ($18) that's capped with unmissable char siu pulled pork, parsley and caramelized onions, poached eggs and sauce.  

There's also their bestselling Bulgogi Beef Benedict ($18.50) that's topped with marinated Korean beef, caramelized onions and carrots.
