Brunch-Happy L.A. Celebrates National Eggs Benedict Day

No one brunches quite like Los Angeles. Walk through Los Feliz, Silver Lake, the Sunset Strip, or any of L.A.'s neighborhoods on any given mid-morning and you'll see the outdoor seating areas of cafés and diners packed with business folk discussing their latest venture or freelancers just enjoying the sun. And one of the favorite brunch dishes of suit and slacker alike is the Eggs Benedict, the iconic dish featuring an English muffin topped with poached eggs, Hollandaise sauce, and meat of various kinds. So today we celebrate National Eggs Benedict Day by showcasing the best L.A. variations on the dish.
