An age-old breakfast classic that never fails to satisfy, it's hard to knock back French toast when it's on the menu. And with so many café's getting creative with the traditional recipe, doused in maple, topped with berries, adorned with ice cream, or gilded with bacon (Best. Topping. Ever.), there's no shortage of Brisbane breakfast spots serving up this sweet breakfast favourite.

Here's a guide to the Brisbane breakfast spots serving up Brisbane's best French toast.

Open Book Cafe

What happens when you get French toast, and take it down to funky town? The French toast with bacon, maple syrup, strawberries and ice cream from Open Book Café of course!

The Ponycat

Do yourself a favour and pay The Ponycat a visit and indulge. Their raspberry and pear French toast with rum and raisin mascarpone is heaven on earth.


You can trust a French cafe to serve up some of Brisbane's best French toast. Anouk's brioche French toast with juicy berries, dollops of ricotta, and swirls of maple syrup will make you one happy chappy.
