The Top 5 Eggs Benedict In New Orleans

The dish known as Eggs Benedict, a breakfast dish consisting of two halves of an English muffin each topped with Canadian bacon or ham, a poached egg, and hollandaise sauce, was first popularized in New York City around the late 1800s. Several restaurants in New Orleans have their own take on the dish, and I have sampled many of them over the years. If you're as big of an Eggs Benedict fan as I am, then you might want to know where to find the best Eggs Benedict in New Orleans. The following list is my own opinion:

TommyMac's Best Eggs Benedict In New Orleans:

  1. Cafe Fleur-De-Lis: Hands down, the best Eggs Benedict in New Orleans. The spicy hollandaise sauce gives this take on the dish a good kick without being overwhelming and without significantly changing the nature of the dish. 

  2. The Old Coffee Pot: Their Chicken Benedict is a welcome deviation from the original. They replace the Canadian bacon with buttermilk chicken and the hollandaise sauce with biscuit gravy. 

  3. Cafe Pontabla: Their Cajun Benedict replaces the traditional Canadian bacon with spicy cajun sausage. 

  4. Stanley: Their Breaux Bridge Benedict features boudin, ham, American cheese, poached eggs, and Hollandaise on French bread.

  5. Court Of The Two Sisters: They use the classic recipe and they do it very well. Why try to improve upon perfection?
