Confession: I drank the California Kool-Aid. I’m one of those
insufferable foodies who expects avocado with every meal, almond milk with my latte, quinoa (gluten free) pasta with my organic pesto, and a dog-friendly patio whenever and wherever I dine. High maintenance I know but the truth is, most reputable San Francisco eateries can accommodate such nonsense requests. It is my pleasure to introduce you to the latest establishment on my “hot list,” Toasty where avocado toast rules.
Just steps from the ever popular Union Street, in the Cow Hollow neighborhood, sits Toasty – my new favorite breakfast nook. Featuring a divine menu of all food things Californians know and love ( avocado toast, chia seed pudding, and acai bowls to name a few) prepare to leave feeling totally satisfied and ready for the next time. There’s only so much goodness you can eat in one sitting!
Totally “dressed” to impress, never have I ever enjoyed eating whole wheat sourdough bread so often. For the traditionalist, the Naked is for you. While you can never go wrong with traditional #avotoast, the Eggy features all of that plus poached eggs. When your sweet tooth gets the best of you, satisfy the craving with the Breckie – nutella toast topped with strawberry and banana. Heartier options include the salmon, prosciutto, and bruschetta (pictured below) toasts.
Acai bowls are my jam. No really though, I could live off of ’em and some days I do. Imagine a decadent smoothie prepared in a bowl, topped with: banana, strawberries, granola, coconut, and peanut butter upon request. They are the perfect hybrid of sweet and savory. Not to mention extremely refreshing after an intense workout! My quality of life improved (can you say #dramatic?!) when Toasty opened its doors for business. This stuff is the REAL deal. No powder packets are blended here (that stuff tastes like chalk). Only fresh ingredients are used and the result is lip-smacking good. But if Acai doesn’t suit your fancy, chow down on some chia seed pudding and a cup o joe instead. You will not be disappointed.
Toasty is serving up avocado toast and acai Tuesday-Friday 7:30 am – 6:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, and available via Uber eats on weekdays. What are you waiting for?! Go get “toasted” at 2760 Octavia Street, San Francisco. Hope to see you there!
Reservations: No (it’s not that type of joint)
