I spent a few weeks on a small project eating my all-time favourite breakfast – no complaints here – to find Cape Town’s finest places when it came to making a good Eggs Benedict! Not only did these restaurants serve an ultimate Eggs Benny, but they topped it with presentation and outstanding service.
Each place had their own unique touch and style and created a “homemade” Eggs Benedict and that’s what I loved most. If you are looking for something different then each place will be able to suit your benedict fix!
41 Third Ave, Claremont, Cape Town
Situated in Harfield, Cafeen serves a monster Eggs Benny on an English muffin with hash browns, bacon and poached eggs topped with hollandaise. Feeling adventurous? Grab a milkshake – I definitely suggest the Ferrero Rocher. While you await your order you can view all the beautiful antiques that surround you or indulge at the candy corner after your meal! One word – toodamnyummy.
The Company Gardens
15 Queen Victoria St, Cape Town
Enjoy a delicious Eggs Benny surrounded by nature itself in the Company Gardens, in CBD. Choose your pick between bacon and a hash brown or go florentine! This was a nice choice for enjoying the outdoors and look on the bright side – you get to enjoy a nice post-stroll through the gardens!

I loved Hemelhuijs because they were unique in so many ways! Firstly, the dish was extraordinary! The bread was fresh and sweet topped with poached eggs and greens with perfectly done hollandaise and sided with an artichoke. The service was on point and fast and the inside of the restaurant was spectacular.
36 Buitenkant St, Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town
Add some Salmon to the mix! Truth Coffee makes a mad Eggs Benny with Spinach and Salmon on sourdough topped with famous hollandaise sauce. Surrounded by finely dressed staff with great attitudes and a beautiful scenery it’s definitely a win-win situation.
I had no choice but to share my findings with the world and I hope that you can BENE-fit from this! :p
