Eggs Benedict is a breakfast masterpiece. The traditional take on the dish consists of two halves of an English muffin that’s topped with Canadian bacon or ham, two poached eggs, and a helping of hollandaise sauce. But, some restaurants put a spin on this classic, swapping out the traditional meat for veggies, crab cakes, or even trout and amping up the sauce with pesto, tomato, or dill flavored hollandaise.

Whether you’re looking for a tried-and-true take on eggs Benedict or want to branch out for a unique taste, consider ordering from one of these metro Detroit restaurants the next time you’re craving the savory breakfast dish.

Dime Store

The Benny’s section on Dime Store’s menu features an impressive lineup of eggs Benedict dishes. There’s the Classic and Veggie as well as two unique bennys. The Cold-Smoked Salmon features salmon, chive cream cheese, onion, arugula, and capers on an English muffin and the Cheesesteak is built on an English muffin and features shaved ribeye, onion, locally-grown mushroom, and American cheese. Customers have the option of choosing house breakfast potatoes, side salad, or fresh fruit with their meal. Dime Store, 719 Griswold St., Suite 180, Detroit; 313-962-9106; eatdimestore.com.

Toast

Toast offers up a more classic eggs Benedict — the Toast Benny at the Ferndale location (called the Classic in Birmingham) is topped with bacon or ham, tomato, spinach, and hollandaise — and a more unique option called the Nova Scotia. The latter features smoked salmon, spinach, tomato, dill, hollandaise, and balsamic drizzle. There’s also the Mexi in Birmingham, which comes topped with smashed avocado, chorizo sausage, tomato, and spicy hollandaise. All Bennys are served with home fries, bacon fried rice, or Parmesan cheese grits. Customers can sub fruit or tomato slices for an additional cost. Toast, 203 Pierce St., Birmingham; 248-258-6278; and 23144 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-398-0444; eatattoast.com.
