Right before we headed downtown for the Board Games for Nepal event to raise awareness and funds for the Nepal earthquake relief fund, Herman and I headed to Eggsmart for a western brunch. I had passed by this location of Eggsmart many times before when I used to frequent this area last year but never went in for a meal. On this rainy Sunday morning, there were actually a lot of people inside the restaurant and it was a full house at one point. Who knew that there were so many people frequently this restaurant?
Since Eggsmart is a western breakfast and brunch kind of place, I ordered their Eggs Benedict to try. I opted for a side salad instead of the regular potatoes side since I didn’t want to load up on carbs — it’s important to get in those 8-10 servings of vegetables per day! 🙂
Herman ordered the waffles with fresh fruit with a side of bacon. I tried the bacon and it was not bad.
I really liked my Eggs Benedict dish! I chose ham to go with it. You could also choose peameal bacon, smoked salmon, Montreal smoked (!), or 6 oz. New York Striploin to go with it. I liked how the eggs were nicely soft poached and that there was enough Hollandaise sauce to cover everything. Their Signature Hollandaise sauce was very good too. It was just the right consistency and taste. It was very, very good and a solid Eggs Benedict! 🙂
The side salad contained mostly fresh lettuce with tomatoes, onions, and cucumber. I chose Balsamic dressing to go with it.
Every so often, I like to indulge in a western breakfast. This was a great morning of that! 🙂 Eggsmart has many locations around the GTA as it is a franchise. They have a good amount of selection for breakfast and lunch!
Looking through the menu, I actually really want to try their Signature Scramble Bowls next time. It sounds so delicious! Their 4-egg omelettes sound uber delicious too.
