The Friendly Toast
Creative flavor combinations (new potato home fries with soy sauce; cayenne-cheddar toast with eggs and mango sour cream) and gaudy, 1950’s décor are a surprising hit at this Kendall Square favorite. As a haven for those seeking vegetarian or gluten-free options, anyone can order a stack of their much-loved King Cakes—named for Elvis himself. Thick cakes stuffed with banana come slathered with peanut butter, surrounded by bacon (or veggie bacon), and topped with whipped cream. Now that’s money, honey.
