1) Giovanni Pastrami
Giovanni Pastrami is an American deli and sports bar found on Lewers Street at the Waikiki Beach Walk. The Eggs Benedict comes with a choice of ham, turkey, bacon, pastrami, or tomato & avocado.
Another popular menu item is the “Triple Play” (one Egg Benedict, a mini wagyu beef loco moco, and a stack of mini pancakes), featuring the triumvirate of popular Hawaii breakfast plates on one dish.

The Veranda at Beachhouse located in the luxurious and historic Moana Surfrider hotel offers pristine ocean views of Waikiki Beach. The Eggs Benedict there comes with a choice of Kalua pork, smoked salmon & spinach, Canadian bacon, or vegetables and the iconic setting is just as delicious as the breakfasts.

4) Heavenly Island Lifestyle
Delicious and healthy may seem like an oxymoron, but the delectable menu at this charming eatery places an emphasis on organic and local Hawaiian ingredients. The Eggs Benedict, for example, infuses lilikoi butter into the homemade Hollandaise sauce, making it a tremendous hit. For the layer between the poached eggs and English muffin are four choices: local pork belly, Kalua pig, local tomato & avocado, and salmon & spinach. The dish is served with Okinawan purple sweet potatoes and a fresh kale salad to balance the decadence with sensible healthful sides.

5) Bogart’s Cafe
Bogart’s Cafe may be most notable for its acai bowls, but its other menu items are also very appealing. Locals relish their delicious options, and among them is the Eggs Benedict. With five variations available, the most difficult decision is to determine which one to indulge in among super lump crab cakes, corned beef brisket, classic ham, asparagus, avocado & spinach, goldie lox, and fish. Each comes with country potatoes. Oh, and did we mention the truffle-scented Hollandaise? (Is this true?)
