I love food and breakfast is one on of my favorite meals. I have recently been craving french toast, so I decided to start a mini quest to find what I consider to be the BEST french toast in Frisco, Texas. I am not a food critic....I sell real estate, but as mentioned, I do love food, so I am a foodie of sorts and this was a fun experience. In regards to french toast, I like mine made the Southern classic way with powered sugar, large portions and very good syrup. Pretty basic. I don't want berries, whip cream or anything else added to my french toast. So, that's the way I ordered it at all of the restaurants I visited. Here's my experience:
I started out at the Original House of Pancakes. They are technically in Plano, but located right across the street from Frisco, so that was close enough for me. The french toast was nice. Very good actually, I wasn't full after eating the serving offered. I knew it wasn't going to make my "best choice" right away and that was a little disappointing. However, the butter and the syrup are wonderful.
The second restaurant I visited was Le Peep. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much. I was blown away by the portion size. It was DELISH and I couldn't eat all of it. Believe me, I tried. Just couldn't do it. Syrup was yummy. Good thick bread and lots of extra butter on top. To me, it was just perfect. I want some more right now!!!!
The third place I tried was Norma's. I had high expectations and was a tad disappointed. However, it was Southern classic french toast and very tasty. The syrup was also very good. However, it did not fill me up, so I had to order a piece of pie so that I could leave with a satisfied tummy.
The fourth place I visited was 5th Street. In my mind and due to other dishes I've had there, they were going to be the winner. I normally love their food, the atmosphere and the fact they aren't a chain! I just knew their french toast would be to die for. Well, I was wrong. It took forever and a day to get my french toast and it was less than average at best. I left unsatisfied and still hungry.
The final restaurant was La Madeleine. The french toast in itself was small, yet very very good and fulfilling. It wasn't as classic as the others, but it was truly delicious. I didn't need or want extra syrup and that's unusual for me!
SO, based upon my experiences, I have ranked what I feel to be the BEST french toast spots in Frisco as follows:
As mentioned, I'm not a food critic, but I do sell real estate all over DFW. If I can help you with any of your real estate needs, please give me a call at 214-886-2588 or email me at email@example.com Perhaps we can visit one of these restaurants while out looking at homes!
Have a GREAT day!

"When my Wife and I bought our House the market was crazy. Inventory was very limited and quick action was necessary. During this tough time we needed a smart, tenacious, agent. We found these qualities in Kellye Demski. Kellye always brought us the latest listings and gave us sound advice on when to make an offer. Kellye showed great patience with us as we looked at House after House. We are very happy with our
purchase and Kellye made the buying process as painless as possible. We would definitely use Kellye again and refer her to Family and Friends.
