Best French Toast in Rhode Island?

I've been searching for the best French Toast in Rhode Island. The old standard I have in my memory banks is the version served by the Wickford Diner back in the '70s. My current favorite is the Portuguese Sweet Bread French Toast (oxymoron?) served at Bristols Breakfast Of Champions. Anyone have any other favorites?

  1. My sister had a french toast at Nick's on Broadway that was absolutely amazing...

    - Garris
    Providence, RI

    1. Nick's rocks. And now finally in the new location w/more room.

      1. Crazy Burger in Narragansett...

        1. Julian's has delicious french toast. And for something really rich, the stuffed french toast at Modern Diner can't be beat.

            Are you referring to the french toast with whiskey sauce and fresh fruit topping at the Modern Diner? If so, I agree that that is one outstanding brunch dish.

            My brother Lurker W. visited the Modern Diner recently and got the hash, which he said was nothing special. With all the delectable weekend specials like this french toast posted on the wall, he orders hash. Yeah, it's claimed to be a specialty of the house but i say Feh.

              Same here. I really like the Modern, but the hash I've gotten there wasn't really any different than standard canned hash. I'll stick with the other specials.

          2. i second the julian's and nick's recommendations! although, even with the expanded location, nick's remains as crowded as ever!
