- The Park Cafe
The Park Cafe really nails it with their toast. I love that it maintains simplicity, while also covering a variety of flavor notes. This avocado toast is complete with a healthy portion of smashed avocado on two slices of fresh sourdough bread and is topped with a drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice and chili flakes. It’s got good crunch, tangy flavors and finishes with some heat from the chili flakes. Ringing in at $8, this avocado toast is one of the more pricey options on this list I’m providing you, but it is well worth the slight price hike. You also will more than likely have leftovers to take home with you!
2. The Harbinger Cafe
The Harbinger comes in hot (literally) with “The Grasshopper”, which is the name of their own unique twist on avocado toast. This toast is complete with a hefty smother of smashed avocado, super seed sprinkle, tahini, sriracha, garlic cashews, and an herb medley on EVO semolina toast. You will more than likely find me here on most weekends indulging in this avocado toast, as well as their amazing pastries and coffee. What I love most about The Grasshopper is the nutty and slight sweet flavor you get from the garlic cashews mixed with the heat from the sriracha. It truly is one of the most unique twists on avocado toast and is definitely worth trying. Ringing in at $7.50, this is a great price for all the toppings you get!
3. The Daily
The Daily keeps it pretty simple with their avocado toast, but somehow makes it twice as delicious as something you might make at home. Their sourdough toast is topped with a light smother of smashed avocado and is then topped with za’atar, sea salt, and olive oil. The creamy avocado and salty flavors prove to be an excellent combo. This toast rings in at just $6 and proves to be a great bang for your buck!
4. Caviar and Bananas
Caviar brings it home with some more classic toppings, but also some of my favorite avocado toast toppings! Two slices of toasted multigrain bread are topped with a hefty portion of smashed avocado, pickled red onions, sliced radish and a sprinkle of cotija cheese. The tangy flavors of the pickled red onion mixed with the crunchy texture of the sliced radishes really take this toast to a whole new level. Ringing in at just $6, this is truly an awesome deal.
5. Vintage Coffee Cafe
Vintage, located in Mt. Pleasant has a very simple take on avocado toast, but with a slight twist. Instead of using smashed avocado, they use sliced avocado. Two slices of toasted sourdough are topped with a slather of house-made tomato onion marmalade, followed by the sliced avocado and then is finished off with a sprinkle of sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil. I love the salty flavors of this toast combined with the sweet flavor notes from the tomato onion marmalade. Ringing in at $7, this toast is a slight splurge but definitely worth every penny.
