Toast!

On Sunday I had the pleasure of going to brunch with two of my favorite bloggers - Kate of Nautical by Nature and Annemarie of Brunch at Saks. These lovely ladies and I met up at Los Angeles hotspot, Toast Bakery Cafe, for good food and company.

If the name sounds familiar, that may be because the cast of The Hills filmed at Toast, I believe, a few times. Aside from that claim to fame, the quaint eatery is located on a prime corner of Melrose Avenue and boasts an sizable outside eating area (a must for dining in LA) which draws in crowds. But don't be discouraged by the lines, they go by really quickly!



In addition to a glass of orange juice and my cup of coffee I ordered the most delicious breakfast I've had in quite some time, the Stuffed French Toast which comes smothered with caramelized bananas, banana pudding, powdered sugar, and walnuts. For me to say I loved this dish really means something because I do not like french toast or walnuts. I just felt that I needed to order a sweet treat for breakfast since Toast is a bakery cafe. So glad I did.


If you ever find yourself on Melrose Avenue, I highly suggest you stop by Toast for a meal!

8221 West 3rd Street
Los Angeles, California 90048

I am totally drooling over that picture--just as I was when I first saw it on instagram. Amazing that you ordered it despite not liking French toast (um, how can you not like French toast?!), but sounds like it was a delightful surprise. YUM!

Such a great way to spend Sunday morning! Always love seeing both of you! xo

Mimi said...

one of the main reasons why the hills was one of my favorite shows is because they eat at so many quaint and cozy restaurants and they always eat yummy looking food! ;)
