Easily one of our favorite Benedicts, the Mediterranean Benny at Lena’s Kitchen in Wixom dazzled our taste buds. The olives, feta, and abundance of chicken make this dish irresistible.

The Whitney (Detroit)

The Eggs Sir Whitney from The Whitney in Detroit is worth rolling out of bed for. This fantastic brunch dish showcases sliced tenderloin atop a garlic cheese baguette. A lively horseradish hollandaise sauce brings the dish together while providing a slight kick. Check out our gallery for more brunch photos from The Whitney.
