The South Street Diner Celebrates #NationalEggsBenedict with 15 Variations of this Classic American Breakfast Dish  

 Traditionally made from a halved English muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, Eggs Benedict has been a staple on the American breakfast table dating back to 1894, when Wall Street stock broker Lemuel Benedict ordered “buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon, and a hooker of Hollandaise” at the Waldorf Hotel. The dish was then modified to its traditional version and named after Benedict, thus creating the heavenly Eggs Benedict!

In honor of the classic American breakfast dish, South Street Diner will be serving 15 variations to celebrate National Eggs Benedict Day on Saturday, April 16th.

South Street Diner (formerly the Blue Diner) was built in 1947 by the Worcester Dining Company to serve local factory workers. Over the years, the Diner has become a local landmark, a constant in Boston's after-hours scene and a final evening destination for local residents, students and visitors. When the clubs close, the Diner is the place to grab something to eat, hang out with friends, celebrity watch, and keep the party going. No visit to Boston is complete without a stop to the South Street Diner. Over the years, the Diner has been called "The PLACE for college students to start their Spring Break Tour" by Rolling Stone Magazine. The Diner has also been featured in numerous feature films, including: Hiding Out with John Cryer; Second Sight with John Laroquette; House Guest with Steve Martin; “21;” The Blue Diner for PBS and recently featured in the DC Comic ‘BatGirl.’
