Outerlands, San Francisco: Outerlands’ Cornbread Benedict is sure to revive the weariest of Eggs Benny eaters. Its take on the classic combines a fried egg, avocado, Cotija, rajas, and cilantro for a dish that strikes a brilliant balance between brunch decadence and Cali cool.

Milktooth, Indianapolis: It’s not for nothing that this breakfast-and-brunch-only spot made it into our Hot 10. Inspired dishes like the Fried Mortadella Dutch Baby Pancake, topped with cheddar, chutney, and arugula, are enough to make a tasting menu blush.
