Your Friend With Benedicts

In classic Morning Squeeze style, we want to be your friend with benedicts this weekend. We’re celebrating National Eggs Benedict Day on April 16 by offering a special Pulled Pork Benedict for the entire weekend.

This over-the-top bennie is loaded with ALL your favorite brunch flavors. It stacks apple juice and Jameson marinated pork and a honey, lime and pecan slaw on a cornbread base then tops it with that classic poached egg and a spicy BBQ Hollandaise sauce.

The Pulled Pork Benedict will be available at all Morning Squeeze locations from April 16 – 18 for $14. In addition to this limited time special, we’ve got three other benedicts that are always on our daily menu. All benedict plates come with a choice of potatoes, fruit or cottage cheese.

  • The Classic Benedict ($12) with Canadian bacon, poached egg and Hollandaise on an English muffin.
  • The vegetarian-friendly Cali Benedict ($13) with tomato, spinach, poached egg and Hollandaise on avocado halves.
  • The Salmon Benedict ($14) with arugula, smoked salmon, poached egg and chipotle Hollandaise on an English muffin.

Benedict Fun Facts

We’re sure you’ve pondered this after a mimosa or two… Just who can we thank for creating the Eggs Benedict? Was it the 19th Century Pope… an American traitor…. the Delmonico chef… or a stock broker with a hangover? Just about anyone with the famed egg name in the mid-1800s lays some claim to stacking an English muffin with ham and poached eggs then smothering it in Hollandaise sauce.

  • Delmonico’s Chef Charles Ranhoff says he created them for Ms. LeGrand Benedict.
  • Stockbroker Lemuel Benedict says he invented the dish at the Waldorf Hotel as a hangover cure.
  • Pope Benedict XIII is said to have liked a particular egg dish so much it was a regular morning meal.
  • Even American traitor Benedict Arnold tries to get into the action.

April Brunch Happenings: It’s Our Squeeze-aversary

If we had to pick a favorite month, it would have to be April. Not only is it ideal patio weather for you and your besties to live your best brunch life, but it’s also our anniversary month.

Eight years. Three Squeezes. One pandemic.

Way back in 2013, we opened the first Morning Squeeze in Old Town Scottsdale on a beautiful April morning. With front row views of Scottsdale Road, our mix of a super-friendly crew serving up brunch favorites and breakfast-friendly cocktails to the beat of a classic 70s and 80s soundtrack was new to Arizona at the time. But we knew right away by your reaction that we were on to something.

A few Aprils later, we opened our Downtown Tempe location in 2018. The Squeeze vibe fit right in with all that Mill Avenue and ASU energy and we added a few touches – like our “Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’ “ sign.

Now in 2021, we are getting set to open our third Squeeze in the heart of Downtown Phoenix, and just like our other Squeeze spots, we’ve got some special touches designed just for the urban neighborhood.

We could not have made it to this point without you. Cheers to you Squeezies! Check out some of the ways we’ll be celebrating this Squeeze-aversary all April long.

Stuffed French Toast

Who needs cake when you have French toast? This month, our SFT tips its beret to our own orange wheel. It layers a luscious caramel orange filling between two slices of our original French toast topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a candied orange wheel.

Find it at all locations for $13.
