What begins as a plain-looking slab of milk toast is slathered in honey butter and popped into the oven. The result’s a golden, buttery hunk of toast that may be adorned with absolutely anything. In actual fact, the great thing about the honey toast is strictly that: Its extravagance is totally customizable. Whereas some might argue that the dessert’s simplicity is what makes it lovely, the Richardson cafe offers you the freedom to personalize the dish. Order yours coated in chocolate, sprinkles and whipped cream or simply frivolously brushed in honey. It’s simply as gentle, fluffy and addicting both means.
A phrase of warning should you’re attempting to get adventurous right here, A Day Cafe doesn’t maintain again on toast, toppings or sugar. The cafe’s signature creation is its honey butter toast ($12.85), an choice that appears easy at first look. However what comes out of the kitchen is a gargantuan 6-inch by 6-inch slice of basic milk toast, brushed in a sweet-and-salty honey butter glaze and topped with fruits and whipped cream.
The chocolate overload toast ($12.85) is not any much less extravagant, garnished in absolutely anything chocolate: M&M’s, Equipment Kat, Oreo cookies and syrup, with a melting scoop of ice cream on high.
It’s an nearly animalistic battle on the desk after the dessert’s arrival. Forks and knives are marginally — if in any respect — helpful. The thick-crusted slices of toast, limitless piles of toppings and fast-melting ice cream make any try and eat with utensils straightforward to desert. In case you’re like us, you’ll resort to shredding the toast aside together with your fingers. It’s instinctual.
Whereas finest recognized for its honey toast, A Day Cafe affords different candy delicacies. Sip and chew on dozens of artistic bubble teas, which embrace a strawberry-scented yogurt, alongside choices like an Oreo smoothie and an ombréd butterfly drink. Crepes are served nearly (however not fairly) as extravagantly, filled with completely different fruits and lotions and patterned with swirls of whipped cream and syrup.
It’s not straightforward to organize any of those dessert monstrosities within the kitchen. Anticipate a 10- to 15-minute wait. However the sumptuously plated dishes that arrive on the desk are well worth the wait.
Simply let your instincts information you.
