Beetlecat's French toast doughnut stack 


Banana-Stuffed French Toast, Nine Mile Station
There’s no monkeying around when it comes to this tasty toast concocted with brioche, stuffed with bananas, and topped with Grand Marnier syrup and candied pecans. Perfect Pair: Wash it down with a Maple Bacon Old-Fashioned. @9milestation

French Toast Doughnut Stack, Beetlecat
Yep, we said doughnut. Think a stack of five, Frenched and griddled, and topped with fruit, warm Vermont maple syrup and whipped cream. It’s a hangover cure—with a food coma to follow! Perfect Pair: Sip a Wild Heaven Brewery’s Ode To Mercy ‘Nitrode’ brown ale to down this indulgent dish. @beetlecatatl

Torrijas, Bar Mercado
Take your taste buds to Spain with this version that’s inspired by the dish, torrijas—think bread soaked in sweetened milk, dipped in egg and pan-fried. Add to that the orange blossom, caramelized bananas and honey-Pedro Ximénez syrup, and you might just be inspired to let loose an “olé!” Perfect Pair: Order a glass of Historic Wine Co. New York Malmsey, which is a sweet Madeira wine with hints of burnt caramel, coffee, dates and candied fruits. @barmercadoatl

Bacon Cheddar Croissant French Toast, Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails
The best of all breakfast worlds come together in this savory dish featuring jalapeno maple syrup, scrambled farm eggs with Applewood-smoked bacon, and jalapeno bacon or sausage. Perfect Pair: Try a Bee’s Knees cocktail (gin, lemon, honey, sparkling wine) to combat the heat of the jalapeno. @miltons_cuisine

Brioche French Toast, Bulla Gastrobar
Sweet tooths will rejoice with this brioche-based toast, topped with vanilla-berry syrup, melt-in-your-mouth white chocolate Chantilly cream, fresh fruit and chopped mint. Perfect Pair: Say “cheers” to this taste with a mimosa made with freshly squeezed OJ. @bullagastrobar
