Top Five Eats: Perth French Toast

I’ve made it my mission to find the best french toast in Perth, and just for you, here are my five favourite in Perth right now! To see more as I come across them, make sure you like my urbanspoon guide. 1. Fez Mount Lawley A lovely cafe off the Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley, with the best french toast I’ve tried so far.

So what is it exactly? French toast is basically bread soaked in egg (and generally milk) and fried. There both savoury and sweet versions. French toast has a long history over a number of countries.
