I’m getting hungry thinking about Zaza’s french toast. Maybe because they’ve perfected the sweet brunch item. By adding honey mascarpone and cinnamon apples, they have the best french toast for fall weather.

3. Ruby Sunshine—classic OR pumpkin praline

Nothing’s butter than a classic buttery brioche toast. This french toast is dipped in spiced custard, grilled and finished with powdered sugar. You should as some applewood-smoked bacon—it pairs nicely.

4. Metro Diner—Yo Hola
