    It's probably no surprise that Artistry's PB&J French Toast ($14) is on the list. Thick slices of brioche French toast are stuffed with peanut butter and raspberry jam, drizzled with maple syrup and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a tart mixed berry compote. Grab and smear, dip and spread. Aim to get a bit of everything (especially the speculoos crumble) in a single bite. You're guaranteed a massive flavour and texture party in your mouth. This one, you'd want all to yourself.

    One of the most iconic dishes in Club Street Social's menu is their Truffled Toast ($14). Although it looks rather simple, this little bread box with a centre of seriously runny yolks complemented with savoury Fontina cheese and a hint of fragrant truffle makes for a perfect way to start any day. Their laid back vibes, chic high-ceiling interior and concise menu also make for a great place to catch up with friends.

    What's truly enticing about a good French toast is a balance of salty and sweet, and the one at Ronin totally nails it with their Brioche French Toast ($14.50) with braised apple, crispy bacon, hazelnut butter and syrup. This rendition is close to flawless in every way, but its the innocent pat of hazelnut butter that adds a depth as it melts into liquid gold and becomes one with the syrup.The back bacon is just salty enough to offset the sweetness, and is a nice crispy contrast to the soft braised apples. You wouldn't want to share this. As always, be sure to have a coffee here — a long black is perfect with this sweet treat!

    Sometimes all you need is a good cup of kopi and kaya toast to satisfy the Singaporean in you, and that's when you head to Tong Ah. They've been serving butter kopi even before adding butter to coffee became a thing. Make sure you don't miss the super crispy kaya toast (tip: request for your toast to be crispy), and also their soft, irresistible pile of French toast. The kaya here is chunkier than what you're used to, but it adds that rustic feel and is still as good. For the quintessential local breakfast, add a couple of soft-boiled eggs. You'll have a breakfast of champions — and at a fraction of what you pay for at cafés!

    With two outlets located in the heart of town, an all-day breakfast treat at Wild Honey makes for a perfect mid-shopping break. The Boulevard St Michel ($22, only at Scotts Square) is a savoury French toast topped with a unique cheese and spinach soufflé, parmesan-crumbed poached egg (!), roasted tomatoes, chutney, and bacon. This might just be one of the best savoury versions you will find as it really hits the spot with texture and flavour. Of course, those with a sweet tooth are not neglected — go for their Sweet Morning ($18, available at Mandarin Gallery), a brioche French toast which hides a delicious grilled mango centre and served with vanilla-scented mascarpone

    From the people behind Thai Boat Noodle at Bedok Point comes another Thai concept, Tuk Tuk Cha, known for their Thai milk tea drinks and sweet or savoury toast. A lovely tea-time treat is their Tom Yum Toast ($2.50) which comes nicely golden brown, sandwiching chicken floss or egg (or both). The toast that really steals the show, though, is their signature oh-so-crispy, air-fried Golden Toast ($3). This comes with dips like Thai tea kaya, taro kaya and condensed milk with Milo, which are available at an additional $0.80 per dip. Remember to pair your toast with Tuk Tuk Cha's super popular Thai Green Milk Tea ($2.80 for regular, $3.20 for large) or the superb iced Hojicha ($4.80)!

    They call their Salted Caramel Brioche French Toast ($10) 'some of life’s best things on a single platter'. With impeccably fluffy brioche dusted with icing sugar, served with caramelised bananas, strokes of French cream and lashing of rich salted caramel, we couldn't have said it any better. As Tastemaker Shawn Loh puts it, 'it's as if the meal wants to smother me with pleasure'. Their savoury Gashouse Egg with Bacon Jam ($10) is simple, honest, and hearty, but it truly kicks ass. With a runny egg sitting in the middle of a thick slice of brioche toast, it is blanketed in melted cheese and comes with a side of scrumptious bacon jam. Be sure to bring a friend, just so you can try both.

    The classic French toast is spiced up with an Asian twist at Sunday Market. The Bangkok Toast ($10.90) is a thick and fluffy block of sweet cinnamon brioche toast, pan-fried and caramelised, then served with a matcha custard and a side of Thai milk tea ice cream. The cold ice cream is a great compliment to the warm toast, and the Japanese and Thai flavours work surprisingly well together. In the event you have leftover ice cream, you can always drink up the rest as Thai iced tea!

    For a Surprising Combination
    The Missing Pan's French Toast Salpicon ($19) is probably the most surprising of the lot with its hidden savoury centre contrasted with its numerous sweet fruit toppings. At first glance, it'd be hard to believe that this massive toast laden with fruit, fried banana nuggets and maple syrup on the side, hides a chicken, spinach and mushroom core. The sweet French toast exterior somehow pairs very well with its savoury quiche-like filling on the inside. Best part about this? It's your main + dessert all in one. Not everyone would enjoy this slightly odd combination, but don't knock it till you've tried it!

    Assembly's Brick Toast ($12) is one unique and extremely photogenic version of Shibuya toast, with its centre removed and deconstructed into a pile of crispy bread cubes. The bread is buttered, sugared, and baked till super crispy. It’s served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and honey Greek yoghurt, topped with strawberries and drizzled with honey. The sweetness of the whole dish is balanced out nicely by the zippiness of the yoghurt, making for an incredibly satisfying dessert.

    French toast can be great on its own, but paired with fried bananas, stuffed with Nutella and drizzled with chocolate sauce — the toast at Little Diner is taken to a whole new level. They also do it a little differently by giving their toast a cereal crust, resulting in a crunchy exterior that gives way to a warm, soft middle. This Stuffed Super Cereal-Crusted French Toast ($16.50) is not to be missed, and is equally great for hogging and sharing!

    For Good Ol' Kaya Toast
    This place doesn't need our recommendation, what with its history, and enthusiastic word of mouth doing it for them. There's no better place to head down in your shorts and slippers with a few good friends and have a comforting breakfast of kaya toast (extra butter, pls) and kopi siu dai. The toast here comes in the form of traditional buns that are served open-faced, smeared with kaya and topped with a small pat of cold butter. Sometimes nothing beats tradition.

    Ham, bacon and vanilla? Not the typical union of flavours, but boCHINche's rendition proves it to work. The brioche French toast ($19) here plays on the balance between sweet and salty. Instead of the usual savoury bacon, it is topped with house-cooked ham, and the bacon takes on unusual forms like bacon-vanilla ice cream, and also as sprinkles of bacon bits. This might be one of the pricier French toasts around, and enjoying a luxurious brunch here is certainly not reserved for a normal weekend. Come for a birthday treat with your best friend, or for a day-time date!

    D.O.C's Reinvented French Toast ($16.50) really stands out with its spiced, marbled sourdough bread with a crisp caramelised crust, fresh fruit salad tossed in a flavour explosion of lime and cardamom-infused syrup, nut crumble, Greek yoghurt and maple syrup. Flavour-wise, it's a refreshing take on the French toast, and if different is what you're looking for, then this is it.

    At Dessert Project, ice cream is no longer just paired with the usual cones or waffles, but with a 3-inch thick pillowy toast with crispy edges. Expect exotic and innovative flavours such as Thai Earl Grey, White Rabbit Candy and, wait for it, White Truffle. These scoops are stacked onto toasts ($13.90-$14.90) smeared with Nutella, sticky toffee sauce, gula Melaka, etc. and two scoops of complementing ice cream flavours. This is one decadent dessert!

    Though known most for their hand-dripped coffee and pancake soufflés, Hoshino does a pretty great job at a simple French Toast with sugar and cream ($9.80). The pieces of French toast are super soft and fluffy, and go really well with the light homemade whipped cream and maple syrup. As Tastemaker Rachel Xie remarks, 'I must say it was love at first bite when I sank my teeth into one of those plush, eggy pillows. Meltingly soft and not too cloying, this is what sweet dreams are made of.'

    "Hands down, tables down, fork and spoon down, one of the BEST french toasts ever!!!" Burpple Tastemaker Kieffer Tay just can't contain his excitement over Forty Hand's Banana Bacon French Toast ($17) — and rightly so. Soft and crispy, salty and sweet, this fluffy brioche French toast is loaded with just the right amount of fragrant egginess, topped with generous portions of crispy bacon and sweet banana slices, all while sitting in a pool of maple syrup. If you prefer bananas over berries on your French toast, this one's your jam.

    As the famous Dazzling Café from Taiwan crashed onto our shores, pictures of their stunningly-plated Shibuya toast hit every social media platform with force. Expect each portion of their signature toast to be plated beautifully and served by waitresses dressed as French maids in a setting that is dainty with an air of whimsy. For optimal visual pleasure, go for the gorgeous Matcha with Azuki Beans Honey Toast ($19.90), or the refreshing Mango and Coconut Gelato Honey Toast ($18.90), exclusive to Singapore. Yes, these pretty delights are pretty pricey too!
