In addition to their Cereal French Toast try their Eggs Benny, Korean Poutine or Loco Moco, which is chuck, brisket, and pork belly atop a bed of rice, house-made gravy, and a fried egg on top! Yum-Oh!


1 cup milk

3 eggs

Pinch of salt

1 tsp cinnamon


Cereal of your choice!

Bread of your choice! The restaurant uses a cider bread from Macrina Bakery.

Whip Cream (optional, but why not?!)

  • Mix the milk, eggs, salt, and cinnamon together. Soak the bread, but not too much! It serves more to adhere the cereal to the bread.
  • Crush the cereal as fine as you can and coat the bread.
  • Butter your pan/griddle and cook on each side until sugar caramelizes and is warm throughout.
