Best Eggs Benedict?

I've discovered that Hidden City Cafe here in Point Richmond has really excellent Eggs Benedict -- one of my favorite Guilty
Pleasures. These wonderfully unhealthy heaps of delicious cholesterol are my absolute favorite breakfast, but only if and when they are done right.

What are some other places to eat GREAT Eggs Benedict?

  1. Kennsington Bistro! The number nine. It's grated potato pancake with the bacon mixed in and a dill (?) hollandaise. Yummy.

      In the East Bay, Hidden City is hard to beat. Great to have an update from Pt Richmond.

      I'll second the number nine at Kennsington Bistro. If you ever go there on Sunday, you MUST order the scone too ... best scone I have ever had in my life. Their house-made English muffin bread is special too.

      On Solano in Albany is Sunnyside Cafe which does a nice job with eggs, using Uncle Eddie's cage-free eggs. Haven't had the benedicts there, but a Chowhound in this post did and liked it

      Royal Cafe on San Pablo Avenue in Albany has a number of Eggs Benedict dishes ... again ... never tried the benedict, but a poster in this topic did and liked them very much.

      Eggs Benedict are not really my first choice, I'm more of a omelet person, but if you are in San Francisco, Mama's in Washington Square makes a nice eggs benedict with foccacia from the bakery across the street. One of the few versions I really, really like. Not traditional though. It is on and off the menu though. Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

      Don't know if they have eggs Benedict or not, but have you tried All's Fare in Pt. Richmond yet? Nice outdoor deck and view of the water. They just got a nice little review in a local free magazine. I wanted to re-visit. It is not in the class as Hidden City, but sometimes you want to sit outside and watch the boats.

    2. Zazie, Cole Valley. The hollandaise is handmade and you get roast potatoes with roast garlic on the side.

        I second Zazie. They have several variations on the theme - my favorite is the Eggs Monaco with prosciutto and oven roasted tomatoes. Mmm.

          1. I really like Liberty Cafe on Cortland in Bernal for the eggs florentine, I am assuming they do a Benedict too.
