French Toast Frenzy!

OK San Diego, here we are again for week 4 in the Better Bite series already! This weekend I went ahead and took on one of my all time favorite breakfast food items ever. Almost equal to my love affair with buttermilk pancakes. The item I speak of is FRENCH TOAST! The close cousin of pancakes as I think of them. Its a flour, eggs, butter and other goodness in the end right? Anyway.....these 5 establishments were the top finds based on my Yelp.com search criteria and found at the bottom of this post. You will not go wrong, cannot go wrong and will leave pleased and in most cased pretty full after dining at one of these amazing french toast specialist of San Diego! Read on and fair warning.....drooling is a side effect of too much staring.
