    Good Stuff Hermosa does a variation with Turkey instead of Canadian Bacon that is amazing.

      Cafe del Rey - I've only been there for dinner and it's pretty good, and they have benedict (and other interesting items) for brunch.

        2nd Cafe del Rey in Marina del Rey. I don't recall if I had the eggs benedict there but their food was really nice - it was the first thing I thought of when I saw your thread title.

        Martha's, Ocean Diner, another breakfast spot I forgot the name of on Hermosa Ave. just north of Pier, west side of street. All in Hermosa. Uncle Bill's & Local Yolk in Manhattan.

          Eat at Joe's is one place in Hermosa. Took over the Backburner Cafe.

            Chez Melange has unusual benedict dishes that are wonderful. Right next store is the Original Pancake House that not only has pancakes, but fluffy and very yummy omelets.

              With regard to Good Stuff in Hermosa, I have to differ! Just had Eggs Benedict there this morning and I swear the hollandaise was from a Knorr packet! It tasted like chicken sauce, salty and thin, the eggs were under poached and I have to say the entire dish was almost inedible.
              The key to a good benedict is always the Hollandaise and in this case it failed. Miserably.

              Try Martha's 22nd Street Grill for decent benedict and there is always Hennessy's on The Pier and The Strand, as well.

                  Pacific Dining Car has a breakfast menu that they also serve late night. The best Benedict and fresh squeezed juice.

                    Expensive but try Ivy at the Shore and with a Ramos Gin Fizz.
