Brisbane’s Best Eggs Benedict

It's hard to pass up eggs benedict on a Saturday morning. Always justified as a 'weekend treat', it's something to welcome in the mini-break ahead. That's if you haven't already welcomed it in the night before with one too many alcoholic beverages, in which case, you probably need it even more. But, there's nothing worse than wasting the bazillion calories on something that's below par. That's why we're bringing you Brisbane's best eggs benedict. And, we mean business. 

Symposium Café

Who said you can't have a caveman diet, and eat eggs benny too? This one's for you, Paleo lovers. Substituting bread for some seriously delicious zucchini fritters, Symposium takes its eggs benedict a step further and adds truffle oil. It's glorious. 

The Gunshop Café

This is your true blue benny. Spinach, crispy bacon, poached eggs, and herbed hollandaise pilled atop an English muffin.  It's a Gunshop brekky menu staple. 

BUZZ Bistro

Salmon, ham, or bacon, BUZZ lets you decide. A bit of a brekky institution, they know eggs benedict. 

Au Cirque

Serving it up with rocket instead of spinach, some crazy flavour sensation goes on between the bitter greens and creamy hollandaise. People rave that the Au Cirque menu has the best benny in Brisbane—we'll let you be the judge. 


Served on two thick pieces of Turkish, Campos's eggs benedict isn't for the faint hearted. It can easily be shared among two. 

Bistro One Eleven

Just when you thought eggs benedict couldn't get any better, Philip Johnson goes ahead and adds a potato galette. That's right, poached eggs, hollandaise, and either smoked salmon or serrano ham on a crispy, potato-y base. 

Rogue Bar + Bistro

Rogue are doing it, too, but in wrap form. Salmon, egg, spinach, avocado, and hollandaise stuffed inside a toasted flour tortilla. 


Free range poachers, double smoked bacon, house hollandaise, cherry tomatoes, and toast. If you're feeling super-duper indulgent, add a side of crispy haloumi. I'm telling you, it's the best eggs benedict on the Paddington strip.

Spicers Balfour

They do a mean breakfast, and an even meaner egg benedict. Served on brioche, with a perfectly cooked egg and they're Chardonnay hollandaise—it's top notch.
