5 Epic, Southern Takes On Eggs Benedict That Are Uniquely Atlanta

If you love eggs benedict and the flavors of the South, then you’re in luck!

It’s National Eggs Benedict Day and May is National Egg Month, so it would be rude not to brunch this spring in Atlanta! There are so many incredible and tasty options for a top-notch brunch in the ATL.

The city has something to satisfy everyone’s taste buds at brunch, especially if you like eggs benedict! Many brunch spots have created unique twists on the brunch staple, honoring the state and city they call home.

Eggs Benedict is a common American breakfast or brunch dish, consisting of two halves of an English muffin, each topped with Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and hollandaise sauce. But Atlanta is here to change that, with incredible Southern inspired takes on our favorite go-to breakfast.
