  • 5 Great French Toasts to Try in L.A.




The weekends are for trying new breakfast spots and indulging yourself in your favorite morning meals. Ask yourself, what could be better than the classic French Toast? And the answer is – nothing! When thick slices of bread are soaked in eggy custard, fried in butter, and served with sweet toppings of your choice, it’s hard to resist the temptation. There are quite a few places in the city that have mastered the art of the perfect French toast. We recommend the following 5 L.A. spots:

BLU JAM CAFE, 7371 MELROSE AVE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90046


It’s a well-known fact that Blu Jam has some of the best french toasts in the city!
This Melrose eatery brings you its best egg brioche that is battered, rolled in corn flakes, griddled, and topped with berries and powdered sugar. If you haven’t yet, definitely plan your next breakfast out here!


REPUBLIQUE, 624 S LA BREA AVE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90036


The French toast at Republique consists of extra-thick brioche soaked overnight in custard. You won’t be able to resist the buttery crust with the silky interior, topped with Vermont maple syrup.


RUTT’S HAWAIIAN CAFE, 12114 W WASHINGTON BLVD, LOS ANGELES, CA 90066


In Rutt’s, you have the luxury to try two French Toast specials: the first one comes with eggs and bacon, sausage, ham, cottage cheese or fruit; second one – With eggs and your choice of char sui, or Portuguese sausage. You can also order A la Carte French Toast made with Hawaiian sweet bread and topped with powdered sugar. Ask for Aunt Jemima syrup to add to this perfection.


THE ORIGINAL PHILIPPE, 1001 N ALAMEDA ST, LOS ANGELES, CA 90012


It’s all about the classics at the Original Philippe! Come in and try their cinnamon-battered thick egg bread served with whipped cream and warm syrup. Add bacon on top to complete your childhood memeories of the dish. Cup of coffee is included.
