Central Mass toast options are on the rise – restaurants are bringing unique combinations and their own twists on a classic. You can find stand-alone menu options for toast at some cafés and bakeries, such as Birchtree Bread Company and STEAM Energy Cafe. Artisanal toast also shows up occasionally on brunch specials from restaurants such as Lock 50, Armsby Abbey, and more. You’ll also find avocado toast, a trend within itself, as a hot menu item at local spots like Brew on the Grid and Nu Kitchen.
