While ordering up Egg's Benedict for Sunday Brunch is oh-so-enjoyable, ordering this hearty egg dish on a weekday is an exercise in decadence that you must experience ... at least once!
I have to admit, Eggs Benedict is a personal favourite - perfectly poached eggs balanced on a crispy English Muffin, a heap of thinly sliced Black Forest Ham (or double-smoked bacon), rich and creamy Hollandaise sauce, and maybe even a sprinkle of Cheddar cheese. Eggs Benedict makes my knees quiver! Truly!
You may have your own local favourites, but these four restaurants all plate up a Benny that I consider "Best in Show". All of them offer their own twist on the traditional dish, and two have spectacular views of the Salish Sea to make your breakfast or brunch even more memorable ... on any day of the week!

Recommended: Whether you choose the Brimm Eggs Benny or the Traditional Eggs Benny, bring an appetite! You definitely won't leave hungry! You'll find the quaint 'bistro' atmosphere of The Brimm, inviting and friendly. On warm sunny days, enjoy The Brimm's street side patio, or the more secluded courtyard seating at the back. Order a specialty coffee or tea to complement your Benny - the combo is a great way to start any day of the week.
Recommended: Eggs Benedict is available at the Shady for weekend Brunch, 11am-2pm. Choose from four versions, including an innovative Crab Cake and Avocado Benny that you won't soon forget! Fantastic Bennies and a spectacular view of the Salish Sea in a casual setting. On warm days, ask for a patio table for something extra special.
Recommended: You're sure to enjoy either one of The Sandbar's two Benny's ... try the more traditional with ham and Hollandaise, or choose the equally yummy variation with crispy strips of bacon, topped with Hollandaise and cheddar cheese. Splurge with pan fried potatoes or substitute a fresh green salad ... my personal favourite. The Sandbar is also an art gallery filled with local art of all sorts ... there's even one of mine there! And on warm days, the patio has an outstanding view of the Salish Sea.

Recommended: Trees Restaurant seems a bit out of the way, but in reality is a mere 5 minutes outside Parksville and definitely worth the extra tire time on the road. Trees has several Bennies to choose from, each of them a tasty treat. I must admit that I'm a traditional kind of gal, so I usually order a ham and Hollandaise Benny ... but go ahead, be adventurous and try something a little out of the ordinary. There are several on the menu that might tempt your taste buds! Trees also offers a full bakery where you can pick up a loaf of freshly baked bread or a decadent sweet treat.
