  1. The Neptune Room has a great lobster eggs benedict and it's just a couple of blocks from Sarabeths without the wait.

      Neptune Room! It is delicious....and they serve it on an biscuit instead of the regular english muffin.


    2. Try Blue Ribbon Bakery for their "Blue" Benedict.

      1. Looking forward to the benedict on savory scones at Alice's Tea Cup. Anyone had a go?

        1. Clinton St. Baking Co. makes a good one...if you're willing to wait in the heinous line

            Im planning on going to CSB next Monday. How busy is it? Should we look for something else nearby? I'm really looking forward to thier pancakes and eggs benedict!!

              It's pretty insane. There's even a wait before the place opens! Don't get me wrong, the place is good, but it's certainly not worth planning your entire day around.

                Mondays should be OK, it's only packed to the gills on the weekends.

                  Um, that's what I thought, but I recently was told there'd be a 30 minute wait when I went around 11am on a Monday. Now that's crazy. Maybe I'm intolerant, but I just can't stand in line BEFORE I've had a few coffees.

                    Damn. Maybe the secret is out.

                    Then again, 30 minutes is a way shorter wait than the weekends. And more than enough time to walk down to the Roasting Plant and walk back to Clinton St. if the weather is cooperative.

                    I might have popped into Shopsins instead.

            2. Five Points serves theirs with homemade pork sausage and a cheddar biscuit...amazing.

                The Eggs Benedict at PJ Clarke's is the best i've had and i've had a bunch. Bonus is they serve it all day.
