The Ten Best Eggs Benedict Dishes in Denver
As major fans of savory breakfasts, we love a good plate of eggs Benedict. There's something about the combination of a soft poached egg, a crunchy English muffin and a lake of creamy sauce kissed with lemon that makes for the perfect kick-start to a morning or a cure for the night before. But why stop with the basics? While there are a few standouts among the traditional Benedict adherents, with so many inventive chefs in Denver, there are plenty of playful and creative takes on the classic recipe, adding some serious flair and flavor to the Mile High breakfast and brunch scene. Here's a list of the ten best eggs Benedict in town -- both classic and re-invented -- to get you revved up for a weekend of egg-ceptional eating.

We love good Southern cuisine and Sassafras is no exception; the fried green tomato Benedict is a brunchtime favorite. Perfect poached eggs sit atop locally sourced arugula, a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette, and fried green tomatoes, all smothered in classic Hollandaise served with house-made cornbread and a breakfast potato casserole or buttered grits. For the full caloric effect, be sure to pair it with an amazing milkshake: chocolate dipped bacon, Twix or Gingersnap Oatmeal Cookie.
9) Smoked Pork Benefit (that's not a typo) at Providence Tavern 5280 West 25th Avenue, Edgewater 303-462-5280
Pulled pork Bennies are a dime a dozen in Denver, but Providence Tavern's is head and shoulders above the rest. Topped with a chile rojo Hollandaise, this house-smoked pork packs some serious heat, so be ready with a bite of buttermilk biscuit to cool it down. A hidden gem in Edgewater, this upscale sports bar offers a killer Sunday brunch with views of the game from every seat.
8) The Root Down at Root Down 1600 West 33rd Avenue 303-993-4200
With seasonally changing Bennies, the Root Down is a menu staple in Highland. A pseudo-healthier take on the breakfast favorite, a quinoa cake replaces the traditional English muffin, topped with Iberico cheese, sun-dried tomato hollandaise and soft poached eggs. You can add bistro tenderloin for an upcharge, which is so worth it. And it's available gluten-free so your GF friends can partake, too.
