Three To Try: Toast

December 16, 2016

Earlier this week I finished a two-part series looking at Easton brunch options (read ’em here and here). One of the stops had me thinking about toast and how good it can be. Dismiss it as a trendy dishes if you will, but a properly done toast is more like an open-faced sandwich, made with hearty breads and loaded all manner of toppings. These three might convince you:

1. Alchemy Juice Bar & Cafe – Alchemy’s menu ranges from cold pressed juices and smoothies to bowls, sandwiches, salads, and snacks, and nestled in there is a roaster of toasts topped with things like avocado, spicy banana, carrot hummus, and other creative ingredients.

2. Dan the Baker Toast Bar – Talk about a hidden gem! Dan the Baker’s Toast Bar is tucked down a side street south of Grandview. That’s his baking facility, with a small cafe attached to the front. I’ve seen everything from croissants to danishes to bagels, and he’s rotated through a series of toasts (using his breads, of course) with house-made butters, spreads, mushrooms, cheeses, salmon, and plenty more.

3. Zest Juice Co. – With four locations – Short North, Easton, Dublin, Grandview – Zest features a full menu of juices, smoothies, and bowls, including a small toast selection using local breads and topped with veggies, fruits, butters, and more.
