Perfect Weekday Breakfast: Avocado Toast, Brooklyn Style

The trend of avocado toast is a near and dear friend to Iris Cafe, a local neighborhood cafe tucked away down the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn Heights. The much loved breakfast item has remained a staple since the restaurant opened its doors five and a half years ago.

The restaurant swears by its mustard/mayo combination and thick spread of avocado. This simple breakfast recipe will remind you to indulge in ‘good’ fats for a nourishing start to the day. Don't forget to add an egg or two, cooked to your liking.
