MSP: Best Eggs Benedict??

looking for quality and variety

  1. I really like the Crab Cake Benedict at Longfellow Grill. They are very rich, a once a year treat for me.

    My cafeteria at work has decent ones too, but probably not what you were looking for.

    1. I really like the Eggs Benedict at Al's Breakfast. I don't eat this dish very often, so when I do, it must be fab. Al's bennie sauce is really tart and lemony. Yum.

        I'm not sure what you'd be looking for in terms of variety when it comes to benedicts, but I'll second Anne's recommendation for Al's--I love their hollandaise.


        1. re: AnneInMpls

          I third the recommendation. I only eat eggs benedict at Al's (which means I'm limited to maybe once or twice a year, if that, since I'm not from MSP). You won't get variety, but where else can you get a side wally blue to go along with your eggs benedict? I love their hollandaise, and the English muffins are crisped just right! And the egg is nice and runny, too.

        2. I just notice Craftsman offers eggs benedict for their Sunday brunch. Anyone tried it?


          1. I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet, but the Bison Benedict @ Hell's Kitchen. Comes with a tangerine-jalapeno hollandaise that is delightful.

            I'm not a fan of the eggs benny, but this one was good enough for me to want more.

              second the hell's kitchen bison benny. also make a point to order benny when it's on the brunch menu at lucia's. don't order it that often/have no desire to order at other places, though i would definitely be intrigued to try the craftsman version mentioned by TDQ, though have no idea when the opportunity will next arise. . .

                I loved the Crab Cake with Poached Egg (Benedict) ay Hell's.

            2. I had really good eggs benedict at Hot Plate. I had a little bit of a cold, but they still tasted great!

                Sounds like a quest!

                I'm not a benedict fan myself, but my eyes popped out when I saw what was being served at the Monte Carlo.

                1. re: Loren3

                  Not fancy, but I like the Egg's Benedict at Sunny Side Up cafe. They also serve it with home fries and more hollandaise sauce.
