Toast is a popular breakfast spot on 3rd Street near the Beverly Center that becomes nightmarishly busy if you show up too late.
Thankfully, we showed up at 8 a.m. and not a creature was stirring, not even a cockroach.
There are two dishes here that I absolutely love that are also pretty unique to Toast.
If you’re feeling like setting off a sugar bomb in your gut, order the super delicious Stuffed French Toast.
What, you ask, is it stuffed with?
Well, not really anything. But it’s topped with caramelized bananas, walnuts and a ton of banana pudding. What?? Yes, banana pudding, suckas!
The lady sitting next to us was reading from the menu when she got to my stuffed French toast. “Well, that sounds disgusting!” she whisper-screamed.
She looked over at that moment, seeing me shove this “disgusting” meal into my face hole and I felt compelled to explain myself.
“I know I’m in store for a major sugar crash but I’m not going to eat the whole thing!” I insisted.
Later on when I was halfway finished, she looked over and taunted “You’re going to eat the whole thing, I just know it!”
The other tasty dish is the Penne Mattina. It’s essentially breakfast pasta. Penne with scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, feta, pesto and sundried tomatoes. It’s awesome.
I’ve only had breakfast at Toast so I can’t say what their other meals are like. And they don’t serve alcohol, so avoid this place if you’re in the mood for a boozy brunch.
Come here early to eat in peace without being shamed for your gratuitous order.
