Eating Eggs Benedict in Munich
Nothing against a healthy start to the day - but sometimes we just feel more like something hearty than healthy bowls or porridge. That's when we fancy Eggs Benedict, for example. If you also like poached eggs on toast with ham, bacon or salmon and hollandaise sauce, then you should check out the following cafés.
The Victorian House at ViktualienmarktCafé
The Victorian House am Viktualienmarkt
The Victorian House at Viktualienmarkt is very, very British. This suits the cozy season particularly well, because instead of a cold industrial-style café, you feel like you're in a small, London boutique hotel. We would say: This is almost the best place in Munich for Eggs Benedict, as they come in a whopping 12 (!) variations, some of which are very unusual. For example, with pastrami, cranberries, seranochip and truffle hollandaise or with smoked trout fillet, creamed horseradish, deep-fried capers and lemon hollandaise. If that's not enough for you, the menu offers numerous other English breakfast, food and, of course, tea specialties.
Madam Anna EkkeRestaurant
Madam Anna Ekke
Madam Anna Ekke is generally one of our favorite breakfast spots, as the menu is wonderfully varied. If you fancy Eggs Benedict instead of the many healthy or sweet dishes, you're in for a treat: the classic "Ekk Benedict" is served here with boiled ham & homemade hollandaise sauce on toasted natural sourdough bread, optionally optimized with caramelized tomatoes, fried bacon, avocado or avocado cream. Yum!
Mary's Coffee ClubCafé
Mary's Coffee Club
Whether you're in Maxvorstadt, Neuhausen/Nymphenburg or Sendlinger Straße, Mary's Coffee Club is a good place to go for a hearty breakfast. And you'll also get your money's worth here if you fancy Eggs Benedict: the dish is served there in a slightly different version, not on toast, but on a waffle. It's homemade, of course. It comes with poached egg, baby spinach, bacon and hollandaise sauce.
Unlike many other cafés, Café Luitpold can rightly call itself a Munich institution: The café has been around since 1888 and still offers fine dining today - confectionery in particular is the specialty here. But breakfast is also served here, including Eggs Benedict. When we talk about Eggs Bendict à la Café Luitpold, we mean: Two eggs on brioche with hollandaise sauce, which can be customized with ham, salmon and/or avocado. Enjoy the taste!
SUPERNOVA Bar & Trattoria
Admittedly, when we think of Italian breakfast, Eggs Benedict is not the first thing that comes to mind. Never mind, Supernova thought - we'll do it anyway! Of course, the dish is not called Eggs Benedict, but San Benedetto Eggs in true Italian style. The poached eggs are served on warm brioche from Julius Brantner - with the obligatory hollandaise sauce. You can choose between smoked salmon and prosciutto cotto and top it all off with spinach.
Bapas - Bavarian tapasCafé
Bapas - Bayrische Tapas
Breakfast tends to degenerate into a little gluttony: You suddenly have three rolls instead of one, like at home, and by the time the pancakes land on the plate after the avocado bread, all we really want to do is go to sleep. But if, like us, you always want to try everything, we recommend Bapas for your next breakfast. They serve Bavarian-style tapas; even the breakfast menu is designed for small portions. Among other things, you can also get Eggs Benedict on a toastie with Serrano ham. And you'll still have enough room in your stomach for other delicacies afterwards...
MARTA Trattoria & Bar
San Benedetto Eggs are also on the menu at MARTA Trattoria at Schwabinger Tor. If you scroll up when you see the picture - yes, MARTA Trattoria and SUPERNOVA belong together. The ingredients are poached eggs on warm brioche from Julius Brantner with hollandaise sauce and a choice of smoked salmon, prosciutto cotto or spinach. There is no difference in taste, your chance of getting a table has just increased by a whole restaurant.
