Let me guess, every time you go out for breakfast you order the smashed avo, French toast or a smoothie bowl? How predictable!
We think it’s high time that you pay homage to everyone’s favourite breakfast of 2010 (and every year before that) and order up a big ol’ plate of eggs benedict the next time you’re splashing out on brekky in Perth. And definitely don’t order the hollandaise on the side you crazy fool!
Here’s where to find some of the best eggs benedict in Perth.
Eggs Benny Chan | Port City Roasters
There is no going wrong with Port City Roasters’ eggs benny chan. Panko crumbed poached eggs atop roti bread, wood smoked bacon, herb salad and sriracha hollandaise, topped with chilli, sesame and fried shallots.
Smoked Beef Brisket | Good Things
Hollandaise is pretty darn good made the traditional way, but when pimped up with chipotle the stakes are raised tenfold. Good Things in Mosman Park is onto a very good thing with their house smoked beef brisket served on potatoes with poached eggs and, of course, the spicy hollandaise goodness!
Benedict | Lincoln’s 102
Highgate’s friendly neighbourhood cafe, Lincoln’s 102 is your trusty eggs benedict compadre. They give you the choice of ham, bacon, smoked salmon or spinach on toast topped with perfect poachies and their home made hollandaise.
Pulled Pork Hash Brown Benedict | Aliment
If you can pull yourself away from Aliment’s brownie filled pancakes, the pulled pork hash brown benedict will knock your socks off. Their pork shoulder is braised in beer for 12 hours and then served on ciabatta with poached eggs, rocket and hollandaise. Yum!
Eggs Benedict | Garden Cafe On Guildford
When you just want a classic eggs benny, look no further than the Garden Cafe On Guildford in Maylands. Crusty bread, topped with crispy bacon, two poached eggs and a whole lotta hollandaise, plus some greens for good measure. You can’t go wrong!
Potato Hash Benedict | George Street Quarters
We love our bread but would happily replace it with potatoes any chance we get, and that’s just what the legends at George Street Quarters have done. Their eggs benedict sits on top of a crispy leek and potato hash, with bacon, spinach and holli sauce.
Mac And Cheese Eggs Benedict | Nic & Kolo
Yep, you read right! Nic & Kolo is serving their eggs benny on panko crumbed macaroni and cheese alongside asparagus, pancetta, parmesan and all of that hollandaise goodness. We cannot get enough!
Potato Rosti And Salmon Hollandaise | City Farm Cafe
Though City Farm Cafe serves the traditional kind of eggs benny with free range ham, it’s their potato rosti with Tasmanian smoked salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise that really gets us going. Plus, it comes with rocket grown at City Farm—it doesn’t get fresher than that!
Fez Benedict | Fez
We go gaga for the benedict at this Mount Lawley spot—a toasted muffin with wilted spinach and poached eggs served with your choice of marguez sausage, ham or bacon. Oh, and did we mention the hollandaise is torched before serving?
Eggs Benedict | Gordon Street Garage
Smoked ham hock, spinach, poachies and hollandaise—you most certainly won’t go hungry after chowing down on the eggs benny from Gordon Street Garage.
Benedict | Timber
With nitrate free Berkshire ham on offer, the health conscious are flocking to Timber in Harrisdale to get a load of their delish eggs benedict. You can also get yours with streaky bacon, oak smoked salmon, spinach or fried pork belly. Yum!
Spiced Beef Benedict | Typika
Pulled spicy Angus beef on a big hunk of crusty ciabatta (seed and gluten free bread also available), topped with two soft poachies and smothered in harissa hollandaise. The only way to make this better is to add half an avo on the side. Good work, Typika.
Bibs Burn-addict | Bib & Tucker
For a winning eggs benedict with one of the most glorious views in Perth, Bib & Tucker is the place to go. They serve a delish spin on the traditional eggs benny with crispy pork hock, smoked chilli hollandaise, crispy leeks and pickled chillies.
Eggs Benedict | Gusto Food
Gusto Food’s breakfast game is strong and their eggs benedict is winning—shaved ham on toast with plenty of hollandaise and perfectly poached eggs.
Pulled Pork Benedict | Cafe Elixir
The pulled pork and the eggs benedict at Cafe Elixir in Wanneroo were all everyone was raving about so they went and combined the two and now life is complete. These guys also serve regular eggs benny, bacon benedict and salmon benedict, and they rightly suggest to order some hash browns to mop up all that sauce. Legends!
Brisket Benedict | tbsp.
Tender pulled beef, beer-braised onions, slow eggs and hollandaise atop crusty ciabatta—this is the eggs benny of your dreams. Thank you, tbsp.
Eggs Benedict | Post
You’ve gotta love the tradish eggs benny on an English muffin, and Post in the State Buildings totally nails theirs. Get on it.
Eggs Bene | Duende
Trust the Spanish to bring your eggs benedict to all new highs. The one served up at Duende in Leederville is loaded with smoked paprika hollandaise and you get to choose between bacon, smoked trout, jamon serrano or jamon iberico. Grazie!
And if you really can’t pass up the smashed avo, here’s where to find the best in Perth.
