At the very least, it should be warm. Cold hollandaise sauce is gummy and eww-y (sorry, I couldn't think of a better word for it). But that's just my opinion :)

Yes, hot, as is customary and boulangere & Stephanie have said.
But cold is an intriguing idea...either with leftovers or on purpose.
You could use already poached or even hard boiled eggs and already cooked bacon or ham. (Or poached or smoked salmon if you prefer those).
I would still favor warm toasted English muffins and warm hollandaise.

Everything should definitely be warm.

I've only ever had it hot
