The Best Avocado Toast Recipe and 10 Places to Get Avocado Toast in Orange County


General / Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

Avocado Toast is one of those dishes that is so delightful, it’s hard to imagine life before it. The simplicity of the dish is perhaps what makes it so enjoyable. Combine that with variations only limited by your imagination, and you can easily see why avocado toast can be so addicting. In fact, I’ve found my choice of breakfast venue is largely determined by whether or not such destination offers this decadent dish and how elaborate it is prepared.

Let’s get real. I’d much rather have someone prepare avocado toast for me than actually toast a piece of gourmet bread and spread a layer of avocado on it. But it really is that simple. If you prefer to get your avocado toast fix at a restaurant, here are my favorite spots in Orange County.
