I haven't always liked French toast, but over the past few years it's become my favorite breakfast dish. Whether it's making my own overnight baked French toast or ordering it at restaurants, I have it as often as I can. I've also been keeping a mental list ranking my favorites. Little did I know that when J suggested we go to Continental on Saturday that I'd find my number one.
J also enjoyed his selection, The Big Bang, a great choice for a hungry man or woman. It consists of a very large shortstack, eggs, turkey sausage, apple smoked bacon, potatoes, and toast. The portions were large, and J thought it was worth the $15 he paid. As much as I don't like breakfast sausage I tried a piece from J's order and thought that was good too as were the potatoes; they had a nice crisp.
I remember dining at the Continental years ago, ordering a stack of delicious pumpkin pancakes, but when I returned to order them I found they were only a seasonal dish. Disappointed I think I ended up settling for either oatmeal or a burger, either way a much less memorable pick. Luckily I listened to J's suggestion because I would have seriously missed out on rediscovering this place. I'm also glad we went close to opening, since the restaurant quickly filled for lunch as we were leaving.
So, is it the world's best French toast? I don't know, I haven't tried them all yet; however, I will say it easily takes my number one spot and is worth many reorders. Challengers you are welcome, but the bar has been set high.
