Top 5 Eggs Benedict in Mississauga
When I was young and in possession of a weak, pathetic and inept palate, I hated the succulent and splendid delicacy that is eggs benedict. I didn't like the buttery, rich hollandaise sauce and the deliciously runny eggs.
With time, I saw the error of my ways and realized that eggs benny is the best goddamn breakfast dish in the world. If you're a traditionalist, you can grab a classic creation with an English muffin, poached eggs, peameal bacon and hollandaise sauce. If you're a little kinkier in the culinary department, you can spice things up with a toasted croissant, smoked salmon, crabmeat, asparagus, spinach, guacamole and cheese. Me? I like my eggs benedict with smoked salmon and Brie (just in case you were wondering).
Fortunately for you, Mississauga has some wonderful restos that serve exceptional eggs benedicts that suit both classic and experimental tastes. Here's a look at some of the best and most creative dishes you can find nearby.
If you're looking for an iconic greasy spoon, you might want to check out Streetsville relic Bobby's Hideaway. Spacious and casual, this joint has big, hearty dishes that will cure even the nastiest and most resilient of hangovers -- so it's perfect for a Sunday brunch after a wild Saturday. If you're into traditional eggs benny, Bobby's offers the basics in the form of poached eggs, an English muffin, peameal bacon and hollandaise. The eggs Florentine offers the same dish with a hearty dose of spinach.
Meadowvale Town Centre recently welcomed yet another brand new resto—and this one is associated with another casual dining hotspot that's been happily serving the community for a few years. Social Eatery Winston Churchill is actually the sister resto of the bigger (and Mississauga-based) Union Social Eatery. Although the menu is different from Union Social's, it specializes in the same casual dining fare consumers have come to expect from the brand. While the restaurant offers a ton of great, casual food for lunch and dinner, it also boasts a great brunch menu. One dish you have to try? The smoked salmon benny. The potatoes alone make it worth it, and the yoghurt shot is a nice--and healthy--touch!
Lissa Genobaga and Damian Kubarski are a husband and wife team who are self-proclaimed foodies and steadfast local supporters who love their community in Clarkson. Their relatively new resto is perfect for brunch and offers benedict enthusiasts the unique Polski Benedict. It's made with potato placki (a Polish potato pancake), smoked salmon or peameal bacon, poached eggs and house-made hollandaise sauce. Any benedict made with a potato pancake is a Benedict worth trying.
Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature ‘stache and big personality are in our city. Chef Massimo recently opened a restaurant called Capra’s Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. Starting from the ground up, his career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His brand new restaurant offers lunch, dinner and weekend brunch that features some eggs benny that are heavy on the porcetta.
Recently, fans of Huevos Gourmet--an absolutely incredible Mexican breakfast and brunch restaurant--were stunned to hear that the restaurant was leaving its cozy Mimico location to relocate to parts unknown. Later, we rejoiced when we learned that Huevos Gourmet chose to relocate to Port Credit. The restaurant, which opened in Feb. 2020, took shape in the old Dunk n’ Dip location on Lakeshore Road East in the city’s east end--not terribly far from where it was located before. Along with huevos rancheros (which is made all the more special with a heaping helping of chorizo on top), the restaurant also serves a ton of Eggs Benedict dishes (including a Mexican Benedict), Mexican omelettes, breakfast burritos, crepes, French toast and more. The Mexican Benedict (available with regular and vegan chorizo) is absolutely to die for.
