Hi,

Can anybody recommend a good spot for Eggs Benny in Paris? Missing a little taste of home. I understand Café Charlot does it as does Breakfast in America. Can anybody vouch for either?

Thanks

    Just saw the chalkboard for sunday brunch in front of Chez Jeanette on the rue du Fbg St Denis: Eggs Benedictine (sic), € 9.50.

      I had the eggs Benedicte at le Floreal (same owner) and it was pretty bad, so I'm not so sure Chez Jeanette would be much better.

      I recently had brunch at Marcel, a new place in the 18th and the eggs Benedicte was surprisingly good. Definitely the best I have had so far in Paris. Coffee Parisien has a pretty egg Benedicte but Marcel's was better.

      Marcel, 1 villa Léandre 75018

        Was recently informed about another place confirmed to have Eggs Benny. Suitably named "Eggs & Co" at 11 rue Bernard Palissy (M: St Germain de Pres).

        Turns out I'm not so great at getting motivated enough to go for brunch so we only managed to hit up Cafe Charlot in the 3rd (stumbling distance). Not bad. Fulfills the craving but I wouldn't compare it to my fav place. The english muffin is denser than a NA version, it doesn't use thick cut ham but rather thin pan fried ham slices. Eggs were perfectly poached and delicious. The hollandaise was good but definitely not freshly made (slightly thick, probably had a starch added to prevent separation).
