Of all the breakfast foods, egg dishes usually come out at the top of the list. They're super fast, easy to prepare and delicious all by themselves. Throw in a few accessories like cheese and a roll and you've got a tasty breakfast you can eat on the run. With a little more prep time and additional ingredients, you can make something pretty special. A number of places dedicate the majority of their menus to eggs like Another Broken Egg Cafe or Eggslut, but sometimes the best egg dishes don't need to headline. Check out these places for some of the best egg dishes in Los Angeles.

Cafe Verona
201 S. La Brea Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
(323) 934-6188

Serving breakfast until 5 p.m. for all the LA late risers who can't get it together before 3 p.m., Cafe Verona is perfectly located on La Brea and 2nd Avenue. While all of its breakfast menu items are fantastic, it's the eggs Benedict that truly pleases the palate. The basic Benedict comes with ham and homemade hollandaise sauce, the Florentine has tender spinach and the Norvegese is topped with smoked salmon. It's a little pricy but worth every bite.

Bagel Broker
7825 Beverly Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
(323) 931-1258

If you're from the East Coast, it's really difficult to find a great bagel once you start heading west. However, the Bagel Broker has managed to get it right, which results in some of the best (and cheapest) bagel sandwiches in town. Throw some eggs between two sides with a little cheese and bacon and you've got a handful of goodness. Choose your egg style: whites, scrambled, sunny, cheesy, meaty or the specialty egg, lox and cream cheese. All eggs come on any flavored or seasoned bagel of your choice.
