best eggs benny

I'm looking for the best eggs benny, preferably in the king west, queen west area.

I have tried sugar - thought it was tasty, but the hollandaise was a little lacking in punch and it wasn't very noticeable. Easy has a decent eggs benny as well, but I am looking for something new. I've always enjoyed the benny at Epicure Cafe up until last Sunday for my Birthday brunch. It was probably just an off day, but the eggs were cooked solid, and a confrontation occurred when I didn't get the half and half (Epicure's famous, half salad, half home/regular fries) I ordered.

Never been to Mitzi's. Comments? Heard good things about le Petit Dejeneur. Good benny? Other recs?

  1. The Pantry - Queen West is decent. Mimosa Cafe at Y&E. Brassaii on King West. www.mishsplayground.com

    1. Musa on Dundas West @ Euclid has a really good version of eggs benny with the hollandaise baked on - and their cajun homefries are tasty...

        1. It's a chain, but I really like Milestone's

            Was just about to mention them. They're good.

            Not exactly eggs benedict, but the poached eggs on the chicken and roasted corn hash is taaaaasty.

          2. Niagara Street Cafe is my favourite and Thuet's is good too. We had a good brunch at Petit Dejeuner too but didn't try the benny.

              Never tried Thuet but frequently go to Easy, Niagara St Cafe, and Sugar. If you find Sugar's hollandaise mild I think you'll love Niagara Street Cafe's benedict. It's very potent with a surge of lemon juice, some herb visibly mixed in and set on a biscuit they bake themselves. It's the best I've been able to find in TO so far.
