Eggs benedict and tacos are my foodie things and wherever I travel, if they’re on the restaurant menu offering a local twist of flavor, chances are they’ll end up on my plate. Such was the case during last month’s trip to Keystone, Colo., when a local suggested I try opens in a new windowHaywood Cafe near opens in a new windowKeystone Resort for lunch.

Eggs Benedict with Giddy Up

Traditional eggs benedict consist of an English muffin split and topped with bacon or ham, poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce. The Haywood Cafe serves up an eggs benedict with giddy up attitude. It’s called the Pulled Pork and Cheddar Bennie and as the name implies, rather than bacon or ham, cheese and pulled pork with a slightly tangy barbecue sauce is served. But wait…the day I visited (during opens in a new windowlast month’s trip to Keystone), rather than an English muffin, this sassy bite was served atop cornbread.

The taste was amazing! Barbecue sauce melded perfectly with the Hollandaise giving it a rich, sassy flavor. Combination of pulled pork, poached egg, the sauce, cheese and cornbread was simply perfect. It wasn’t too heavy and was surprisingly light.

Pulled Pork and Cheddar Bennie Delish but Skip The…

The dish was $10.50 and I paid the $2 extra for fruit, but if you look at the photo, you’ll see the fruit I received. It looks like it was 1/64th of a melon or maybe smaller. I know things are more expensive in the mountains but if you order the Pulled Pork and Cheddar Bennie – or any other dish from the Haywood Cafe – skip the fruit and grab a piece of natural sugar from the nearby convenience store. Other than that, the meal was amazing.

The Haywood Cafe is a sports bar serving breakfast and lunch. I’m betting it’s a popular warm winter hangout, too.
