The Abbaye - 3rd and Fairmount
Regular Eggs Benedict... perfection in a benny. Homemade biscuits & the perfect amount of hollandaise sauce.
5 out of 5.
Juan's dish is pictured, so here's his review:
Always a great selection here. Biscuits, eggs and hollandaise are all superb. And look at those potatoes?! Crispy and delicious, best of the city thus far. My only side-note is that I prefer the classic canadian bacon as opposed to the regular bacon pictured here. Otherwise, no complaints. The Abbaye is our home-field of breakfast spots, if you will. You'll never once wait for a table (all of you suckers waiting out front of Honeys need to get a clue) and the home of Jorge, only the best server in the 215.
Im giving a 4.5 out of 5.
The Texas Benedict
"It takes a particular hunger to order the Texas benny..." - Jorge
Don't ever order this. Unless you enjoy feeling like complete crap. The infamous Texas Benedict. This is the second (and last) Texas Benny I've ever ordered from the Abbaye.
Homemade biscuits, gravy, bacon, poached eggs, and... fried chicken. Tastes GREAT, but not intended to be eaten by humans.

The Vegetable Benedict...
.. for those of you who think adding spinach and tomatoes somehow transforms the eggs bendict into a healthy meal.
In all seriousness, I dig this benny as much as the regular benny at the Abbaye. Nothing complicated about this one... ditch the bacon, add some veggies.
