Best Toast

Avocado Toast at Awaken Café

Let's get this out of the way as quickly and as elegantly as possible: Yes, this is an endorsement of $6.50 toast. We're telling you to go out and spend nearly two Big Macs' worth of your hard-earned cash on toasted bread. Not just telling you, even, imploring you, because this isn't just toast, it's a full meal — thick, perfectly-crunchy-but-still-soft Texas toast; a gorgeous, organic avocado, cut into smearable little slices; a sprinkling of salt and pepper; and a little silver cup full of kalamata olives, to be thrown on top for extra salt or eaten on the side; all enjoyed in downtown's loveliest, most light-filled little café. And it's much, much better than a Big Mac.
