Each restaurant will be featuring their eggs benedict on their menu from August 8 – 31, 2019.

How Does this all Work? For the public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the eggs benedict creations in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best creation for the People’s Choice award winners.

Voting criteria –  some things to help you judge your favourite eggs benedict’s – keep these things in mind: originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.
