The big outdoor rooster and “Benny-the-greeter” at the front door, reveal that Benedict’s doesn’t take itself too seriously; it’s warm, affordable, and friendly. Owner Chanda Furney, has been living her dream; packing Benedict’s (even on weekdays) with crowds hungry for her uber-affordable breakfasts. Diners include business lunchers with Blackberry 10′s alongside construction folk sporting fluorescent vests. Tucked in a corner, a nearly one-hundred-year-old Nona uses effective hand gestures to ask for napkins.
The signature eggs Benny features Canadian peameal bacon and a light, sweet, lemony hollandaise, with a soft English muffin for sopping up the poached-as-you-ordered them eggs. The hash browns prove addictive. Fast and efficient service keeps the coffee topped up and servers burn calories circling the floor with plates stacked high, carefully navigating the swinging red-saloon doors.
