If you've had enough smashed avocado on impossible-to-cut and/or take-a-bite-out-of slabs of hard bread, may we suggest veering away from the Aussie brekkie for once and opting instead for a Japanese take on toast? Believe it or not, it's even more Instagrammable.
At Lower East Side hole-in-the-wall Davelle, an all-day cafe modeled after traditional Japanese coffee and tea shops called kissaten, you can pair your matcha (or tofu smoothie) with a crunchy work of art. Ranging from the sweet (cinnamon sugar, berry and cream cheese) to the savory (Mentai mayo, ham and egg), Davelle's 10 specialty toasts are meticulously prepared and as delicious - and aesthetically pleasing - as any brunch dish can get. We mean, banana slices cut into perfect little flowers is a far cry from green mush, especially when it's all plated on photogenic pieces of "newspaper" parchment.
The toast menu is available every day from 8 am to 3:30 pm. Just remember, whoever's making these edible treasures definitely deserves a big tip.
