1. Banana and cream-cheese-stuffed French toast at Monki
Blurring the line between a sweet breakfast and dessert, Monki’s French toast is a thing of beauty. Brioche stuffed with Frangelico, banana and cream cheese, and finished off with Nutella and condensed milk. What more could you ask for? -Dan Clapson

2. Stuffed French toast with cinnamon creme cheese and field berry compote at Blue Star Diner
Take a thick, thick slab of bread, insert cinnamon cream cheese and field berry compote, dip in egg and grill until the outside is crisp. Devour. You’ll love it. -John Gilchrist

3. Salted Caramel French toast at Vendome Caf
The caf’s well-executed variation on the popular breakfast dish with caramelized bananas, cream cheese and homemade caramel sauce really does put other coffee-shop breakfasts to shame. -Dan Clapson
