Recently, we collaborated with local Canberra Instagram bloggers The Canberra Brunch Diaries to create this highly delicious video of their favourite French Toast in the Nation’s Capital. Any excuse to eat delicious French Toast for 5 weekends in a row? We’re in!
But let’s not keep you waiting, here is The Canberra Brunch Diaries with “5 French Toasts of Canberra”, in no particular order.
Patissez, 21 Bougainville, Griffith, ACT 2603.
Patissez may be known for their freak shakes, but they have so much more on offer, including a dedicated french toast menu! The menu features eight different toppings options for their house-made brioche french toast. We enjoyed the Banoffee (banana, caramel, honeycomb), the Oh Canada! (bacon, maple syrup, milk crumb) and the Passionfruit Pav (passionfruit, smashed pav, freeze dried rasperries) all served with vanilla gelato. With friendly service, generous portion sizes and catering for all tastes, this is a must on any foodie bucket list.
Little Oink, 22 Cook Place, Cook ACT 2614.
For French Toast without the hassle of parking in one of the busier shopping precincts, check out the french toast on offer at Cook shops. Their french toast changes with the seasons and we visited when the caramel apple french toast was on offer. Brioche French Toast with roasted apples, caramel sauce, custard, cinnamon crumble and berries. Pretty as a picture!
Penny University, 15 Kennedy St, Kingston, ACT, 2604.
The original and the best – Banoffee Croissant French Toast from Penny University. This dish has been on the menu for years at Penny’s but they continually make it more and more special. A french toasted croissant filled with banana and topped with crushed peanuts, vanilla mascarpone, popcorn and salted caramel sauce. Go with an empty stomach and get your sweet tooth and Instagram ready for this one!
Highroad, 1 Woolley St, Dickson, ACT 2601.
Highroad continues to pump out a quality french toast option with each seasonal menu. They’ve always got a french toast with a twist – think carrot cake, sticky date and banana bread!! The winter 2019 option is Tiramisu French Toast with chocolate mousse, ona coffee cream cheese, sour cherry, shortbread and mascarpone. Aside from the french toast, Highroad is always a favourite for all the seating space, interior decor, service and of course, coffee!
Teddy Picker’s, 67 Constitution Ave, Campbell, ACT 2612.
Teddy Picker’s have perfected the french toast formula and making it our favourite french toast in Canberra. While their toppings change with the seasons, they always feature a custard pressed french toast with milk crumb and ice cream. Currently Teddy’s have spoilt us with not only vanilla ice cream, but a scoop of the one-and-only Gelato Messina passionfruit gelato, as well as generous lashings of lemon curd and meringue. We also love that their menu holds on to a few favourite dishes and rotates others seasonally. There’s always friendly service and pets are welcome too.
