As I’ve mentioned before, I’m somewhat of a French toast expert, as is Dave. It’s my most favorite breakfast food (which is as equally delicious for lunch or dinner) and I’ve tried it at a lot of restaurants.
The Dogpatch-The Dogpatch is a Li’l Abner-themed restaurant located in Munising. Their French toast is made out of cinnamon swirl bread soaked in a very rich custard and topped with lots of melted butter. A great place to stop when you’re visiting Picture Rocks National Lakeshore.
Foothills-The Foothills Restaurant is located in Silver City just a couple of miles down the road from the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. And according to Dave, the Foothills French toast is the best French toast he has ever had ANYWHERE. It’s made with homemade bread and topped with a buttery, sweet granola. Very unique and very tasty.
The Breakfast Club-The Breakfast Club is located in Farmington Hills and is only open for breakfast and lunch. They offer several varieties of French toast, including their signature oven baked French toast which is topped with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and streusel topping. My favorite variety is one that I got on special one morning, French toast made out of coffee cake. It was heavenly!
Tamarack Inn-The Tamarack Inn is located in Copper Harbor in the Upper Peninsula and was our breakfast of choice on not one, but two days during our stay before our fateful Isle Royale trip. Their French toast is made out of raspberry, blueberry or apple fritters and is simply delicious!
Senate Coney Island-The Senate Coney Island is my more often go-to place for French toast. It’s local (Livonia), they have convenient hours, and it’s cheap. The French toast is your typical diner or coney island French toast, but it’s very good if simple.
