The Oaks Grille

(Visited December 7, 2019) Outstanding Eggs Benedict for champagne brunch! Always perfectly poached eggs here. The OG was decorated beautifully for Christmas with fresh poinsettias on the tables and whatnot.

Hob Nob Hill

A San Diego institution since 1944, Hob Nob Hill is one of SoCal’s best restaurants! Located in downtown San Diego’s Bankers Hill neighborhood, you’re immediately transported to another era when you step inside. We were fortunate to go on a weekday late morning for breakfast. Made for easy, close parking and other environmental factors were limited.

I ordered a simple two egg breakfast with perfectly cooked sunny side eggs. The hand formed sausage patties were outstanding. The O’Brien taters were excellent. You don’t see these very often. Also pictured below is Lady FoodObs great looking order of her go-to, Eggs Benedict.

Excellent Eggs Benedict at the OG champagne brunch! Always perfectly poached eggs.

Outstanding Eggs Benedict, even if I did have to do champagne brunch on the Par Lounge side! đŸ˜‚

Marinade on Main

Traditional Eggs Benedict is consistently elevated to the next level at Marinade on Main in Ramona, CA! Here’s an outstanding ‘Ham Benny’ made with their excellent house made biscuit serving as a hearty base. The biscuit halves are crowned with thick cut grilled ham, kale, perfectly poached eggs and one of the best hollandaise sauces I’ve put in my mouth!

The Broken Yolk Cafe

Outstanding Western Benedict at The Broken Yolk Cafe in Temecula! Although somewhat haphazardly constructed, it was still super delicious.

The Oaks Grille 

Outstanding brunch recently at The Oaks Grille! I’ve reviewed this dish ad nauseam over the years, so I’ll keep it brief. Still the best order of Eggs Benedict in Ramona with perfectly poached eggs. Price has gone up to $10.25, but it’s still a good value when you factor in the two complimentary glasses of champagne.

Oaks Grille

I’ve reviewed this dish ad nauseam over the years so I’ll keep it short. Oaks Grille still has the best Eggs Benedict in Ramona. Perfectly poached eggs (most of the time) and a great view. Outstanding hollandaise sauce too… For weekend brunch, only $9.95 which includes two glasses of champagne!

The Main Course Restaurant 

Kicked off birthday weekend with a great breakfast at The Main Course Restaurant. I love Eggs Benedict and they have four great varieties. Traditional; Gravlax; California Lobster; and Prime Steak :)I’m old school so I ordered Traditional ($12). Great job on the dish here with an outstanding presentation. Eggs were poached a bit too long though, resulting in hard yolks. Usually at other places I have to send it back because it’s undercooked and the whites are loose. This is the first time it’s gone the other way. Still very tasty though. The Hollandaise was on the delicate side and somewhat bland.

Really good potato side. Seemed like thinly sliced fingerling potatoes sautéed with onions and peppers.

Overall experience and service from everyone was top-shelf as always!

Happy New Year!
