Breakfast at Baguio's Le Monet is something I always look forward to, and there's nothing quite like starting the day right with a sumptuous breakfast buffet. Or Le Monet's legendary Eggs Benedict...
A perfectly poached egg draped in rich hollandaise sauce, with layers of asparagus, tomatoes...and bacon. Double or triple stacked, that's how we do breakfast at Le Monet...
Shafts of light pierce through the early morning haze, and it's the start of another new day in the City of Pines. And another round at the famed breakfast buffet at Le Monet.
The buffet spread is laid out and filled to the brim, as early risers get first dibs on the morning's early offerings. The station chefs work at a frenzied pace, but despite the visible rush, your sunny side-ups, omelets and poached eggs, including their signature Eggs Benedict, are served perfectly.
One of the must-try dishes at Le Monet's daily breakfast buffet is their tender Beef Tapa (L), perfect with some garlic fried rice and a sunny-side up. And you just can't have enough bacon, and Le Monet keeps the station filled with bacon. If you want your bacon extra crispy, the station chefs will have it ready for you in minutes.
Poached eggs, Country Sausages, and Cinnamon French Toast topped with butter and drizzled with maple syrup, and the first round with Le Monet's breakfast buffet is off to a good start. With their very own bakery, the Le Monet Bakery, you can enjoy a wide selection of freshly baked bread, and Le Monet's French Toast uses their long baguettes for new and unique flavors.
Then, it's time for the Le Monet's Eggs Benedict, with garden fresh tomatoes, asparagus, bacon and a poached egg drizzled with creamy hollandaise sauce on an English muffin. Tap the poached egg and let it run, blending with the rich hollandaise sauce. The sharp smoky notes of the crispy bacon are tempered by the poached egg and hollandaise sauce for balanced flavors, and the tomatoes weave in with its own distinct tart notes. The range and tapestry of flavors are just what you need to start the day right at Le Monet.
If you're after double the goodness, go for the delicately stacked double deck Eggs Benedict, with twice the amount and flavor.
You can even top your Eggs Benedict with the Vigan Longganisa, a local regional pork sausage with a pronounced garlic hint for even more layers of flavors. You can customize your very own Eggs Benedict and the station chefs will gladly assist you.
Or you can go all-out with the triple decker Eggs Benedict. It's a heart-stopper, literally and figuratively, and the station chefs at Le Monet have mastered the art of delicately stacking the dish to a whole new level.
A breakfast at Le Monet is one of those absolute must-try dining experiences in Baguio. And after breakfast, take a leisurely stroll in the hotel's private garden surrounded by pines. Nothing quite like mornings in Baguio. And definitely nothing quite like Le Monet's Eggs Benedict...
