Ah, Eggs Benedict. A quivering poached egg ready to burst open and ooze golden sunshine goodness on a delectable combo of bread, meat or veggies, and Hollandaise sauce is a terrific way to start the day, even if you’re loading up on its rich egg-y goodness to fend off a weekend hangover.

Eggs Benedict Day happens to be April 16 each year, but there’s never a need to wait for that day, or a weekend, to indulge in one of the best breakfast dishes out there. With plenty of variations on the classic theme, here are our picks for where to find the best Eggs Benedict in Vancouver.

Yolk’s Breakfast + Commissary

Plot out your chart to Eggs Benedict happiness at Yolk’s sit-down restaurant by choosing what you want to pair your poached eggs with (double smoked bacon, honey ham or portobello mushroom), and pick to have ’em “Benedict Style.”

Address: 1298 East Hastings Street
Phone: 604-428-YOLK (9655)
Website: yolks.ca

Twisted Fork

Brunchtime diners can do some mixing and matching with their Twisted Fork Eggs Benny, which are served on brioche toast. Build it up with whatever “filler” you choose, from roasted chicken to smoked salmon, ham or bacon, or veggie options like roasted tomato.

Address: 1147 Granville Street, Downtown
Phone: 604-568-0749
Website: twistedforkbistro.ca

Forage

It’s a bonus that a restaurant of the calibre of Forage happens to be in a hotel, since that means they’re open for breakfast and brunch. At this sustainable eatery on the cusp of the West End and Downtown their morning meals are sublime, and their menu thankfully includes Eggs Benedict.

Address: 1300 Robson Street, West End
Phone: 604-661-1400

Café Zen

There are a whopping 15 choices in the Benny column on the Café Zen menu, and what’s even better is you can do your own combos of ingredients like chorizo, avocado, crab, peameal bacon, and much more.

Address: 1631 Yew Street, West End
Phone: 604-731-4018

Heirloom

Meat isn’t a must for an Eggs Benny, and at one of Vancouver’s best vegetarian restaurant, Heirloom, they make the most out of veggies by offering several twists on the classic, including their Beet Back-Bacon Benny, with wilted spinach and maple-glazed beets.

Address: 1509 W 12th Avenue, South Granville
Phone: 604-733-2231

Top Chef Canada vet Trevor Bird has three kinds of Eggs Benedict on the menu of his farm-to-table focused Fable, all made with olive oil Hollandaise. Choose from ham, spinach, or the fish feature (and hope for the smoked trout).

Address: 1944 W 4th Avenue, Kitsilano
Phone: 604-732-1322

Jethro’s Fine Grub

Sure, you can get a classic Eggs Benedict at Jethro’s, but this quirky daytime-only restaurant with two locations keeps things interesting with their Papas Eggs Benedict (made with crispy potato skins instead of an English Muffin) or the La Nina (grilled corn cake Benedict with Tex-Mex chili).

Address: 3420 Dunbar Street and 3455 Fraser Street
Phone: 604-569-3441 (Dunbar) and 604-620-5292 (Fraser)
Website: www.jethrosfinegrub.com

Scoozis Mediterranean Bar + Grill

Scoozis gets a lot of love for their brunch menu, including their Eggs Benedict, especially for visitors to Vancouver staying in Downtown. Go for the ultimate vacation (or staycation) style indulgence and get your Benny on a croissant.

Address: 445 Howe Street, Downtown
Phone: 604-684-1009
Website: www.scoozis.ca

The Elbow Room Café

Things get a little wild at the Elbow Room, where you’ll find their broad range of interpretations of Eggs Benedict on a section of the menu called “13 Dishes to Delight.” In exchange for the giggle factor of ordering a “Come-I-Wanna-Lay-Ya” (Two large poached eggs, pineapple, sliced black forest ham, banana, peaches and kiwi on a sour dough muffin, topped with Hollandaise) you may get sassed by the staff, which is all part of the Elbow Room’s, errr, charm.

Address: 560 Davie Street, West End
Phone: 604-685-3628
Website: www.theelbowroomcafe.com

The Union

Score one…or three…for originality, for the trio of “Bao Bun Bennies” at The Union, each of which plays on classic Asian flavours, served on bao buns and topped with Hollandaise.

Address: 219 Union Street
Phone: 604-568-3230
