Where can I get a French Toast Sandwich (not a Monte Cristo)?

ipsedixit Feb 6, 2007 09:08 PM

Aside from Burger King, does any place offer a French Toast sandwich?

Not a Monte Cristo where regular bread, ham, turkey, cheese, etc. are fried together.

Rather, what I am looking for is a sandwich where the french toast is made separately and beforehand, then used as the "bread" for the sandwich ingredients, e.g. ham, egg, cheese, etc.

Burger King has a version, albeit a rather sorry one.

So, I ask, where can I find a French Toast Sandwich (that is not a Monte Cristo)?

Thanks very much.

    Have you tried the French toast sandwiches at Famima? (they have it in sausage or ham) They just started a breakfast campaign this month with french toast + coffee. I think it's pretty good quality for a conveninence store item! Get it warmed up and don't forget to get the maple syrup, they give it to you at the counter.
    For sit downs, I definitely say 26 Beach in Venice. Not too sweet and just right!

          I'm thinking you could get the crew at Europane to assemble one for you on a Sunday morning.

              Definitely on Sun mornings, possibly Sat too. The thick kind.

              Yeah, I do it at The Original Pantry. I ask for the sourdough French toast and load it up with my bacon &/or ham.
              Is that a French Toast sandwich?

                That's not a bad idea ... I guess I'm just too lazy to put together my own cholesterol bomb ...

                26 Beach in Venice/Marina del Ray has a lot of different french toast options on their brunch menu- including 2 "monte cristo" named sandwiches. The one I had this weekend did not seem like the whole thing was fried together...not encased in the egg-batter, more like a grilled ham and cheese with french toast for the bread......

                it was YUM

                3100 Washington Blvd.
                (west of Lincoln near corner of Yale)

                sorry- i can only find their dinner menu online
