Eggs Benedict: Where to savour a hearty breakfast in Montreal

meilleurs oeufs bénédictines montréal

Where to savour the best eggs Benedict in Montreal? Whether over-easy, soft-boiled, poached, scrambled, or made into an omelette, eggs are delicious and a quintessential part of breakfast. Sometimes, we feel a little extra and have them them on an English muffin, with smoked salmon and a good dollop of hollandaise sauce for a super satisfying and flavourful meal.

Few things are as simply delicious as an egg. That’s why it’s used so much in cooking for all sorts of reasons. From pastries to baked goods, from gourmet food to simple home cooking, there are eggs in the fridges and on the shelves of almost every kitchen in the world. Despite its ubiquity, the origin of some egg dishes remains uncertain. Along with sangria and iced coffee, eggs Benedict join the list of dishes with uncertain origins. In any case, this is a breakfast and brunch staple that we love and will continue to eat with the utmost pleasure. If you love this classic morning dish as much as we do, this list is for you! We’ve compiled our favourite places to eat eggs Benedict, from classic plates executed with brio to others that are more original but just as delicious.

Bon appétit to all and good morning!

L’Entre-pots Masson

Only two varieties of eggs Benedict are served at l’Entre-Pots Masson, but you can be sure that they go all out. Like the other dishes served at the restaurant, this breakfast is rich in flavour while remaining simple. For example, the eggs are served on roasted ham and ham on the bone, with caramelized onions and Swiss cheese, all served on a homemade potato and onion bread and covered with a creamy hollandaise sauce. A pure delight. A “poutine breakfast” version is also available, and it’s possible to have either dishes made vegan! photo Well
