Whether it is a long-time memory from your childhood, or still very present in your mind, or a new discovery that shook your taste buds, one thing is sure: French toast – and its cheeky brioche version – is the quintessence of regressive and scrumptious dessert.
Plated very simply, often buttery and golden, served with fresh fruits or even topped with whipped cream or an ice cream scoop, French toast has it all to delight young or older foodies.
Good news! Paris has a lot of places featuring this little wonder: restaurants, coffee shops or even brunches and teatimes.
