Toast, the sleek little cafe known for its French omelettes, crepes, the Danish pancake balls known as aebleskivers, is about to open its third location, called French Toast, on Decatur Street in the French Quarter, NOLA.COM reports.
Owners and chefs Cara and Evan Benson started their cafe mini-empire in 2010 with Tartine, a quiet breakfast and lunch cafe nestled near the river in Uptown’s Black Pearl neighborhood (and known for excellent king cakes). Four years later, they took over the space near Octavia Books that Laurel Street Bakery had previously occupied with Toast. In 2016, they opened another location near the New Orleans Fairgrounds.
French Toast is expected to open in September.
