Eggs Benedict at the Dancing Moose Cafe

I’m a big fan of food, even more than that I’m a big fan of breakfast food and I’m always on the look out for great places to eat breakfast. This weekend I found myself at the Dancing Moose Cafe.

The Dancing Moose Cafe is nestled in Old Town, Yellowknife, right on the main road before crossing over to Latham Island and doubles as a Bed and Breakfast.

Dancing Moose Cafe Coffee

I have come to the Dancing Moose on several occasions this summer and think I can call it my preferred breakfast place at the moment. The cafe fits my personality quite well. On the water, calm and relaxing atmosphere and real good breakfast food, with a good variety.

Eggs Benedict is one of my all time favourite breakfast foods but more so it is a breakfast food I cannot make… very good. So that being said I’m always on the look out for anyone who makes them. The Dancing Moose is one of those places and at a reasonable rate.

Dancing Moose Cafe Eggs Benedict

The Dancing Moose Cafe’s Eggs Benedict is two marvellously poached eggs, which are still runny inside on top of a toasted english muffin and thick slices of grilled ham. Not your regular sliced ham I might add and not a chuck of ham either. The perfect ham:egg ratio. All smothered in some mighty fine hollandaise sauce. It is a meal that even when writing about it makes my mouth water and eyes tear and I only eat it an hour ago.

Eating Eggs Benny

The meal doesn’t stop there though, most breakfast plates at the Dancing Moose come with a bowl of fruit and big chunks of seasons and grilled potatoes.

Like I said, eggs benedict is my favourite breakfast meal so of course I’m going to recommend that you also try the benny’s at the Dancing Moose Cafe. To top it off though, they serve breakfast all day Saturday and Sunday starting at 9am. I love it.
