A Perfect Sunday Breakfast

There’s nothing I love more than spending a cold, rainy New York Sunday eating the perfect breakfast – a latte and a pastry. I’m particularly fond of the creamy lattes and Filone French Toast at Cafe Pedlar in Cobble Hill. Filone French Toast is made using thick cut slices of Italian filone bread, which is similar in texture to a French baguette, and lots of sugary goodness. Unlike traditional french toast, it’s served room temperature. The outside is a mixture of sweet crispy and chewy caramelized layers, while the inside is soft and less sweet. It’s the perfect mix of textures and just the right amount of sweetness to pair with coffee. All the pastries at Cafe Pedlar are made at Frankies 457 in Carroll Gardens. I wonder if they’d share the recipe…
