Banksia Avocado Toast

The avocado toast at Banksia features ingredients like white miso, Szechuan pepper and ponzu-roasted black sesame seeds. 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and at Banksia, you can get your fill every day of the week. No matter the time of day, you can't go wrong with the bakery's pastries – croissants, lamingtons, Danish and more – but if you're looking for something a little more substantial, pick up an order of avocado toast from Banksia. 

The avocado toast at this Australian bake house bursts with flavor. Available for breakfast or lunch, the dish starts with pain levain bread that is lightly smeared with white miso. From there, the restaurant piles on arugula, avocado, Szechuan pepper, ponzu-roasted black sesame seeds and pan-roasted cherry tomatoes. To top it all off, Banksia adds a fried egg for both protein and the beautiful yolk that runs over the toast as soon as you cut into it. 

Both Banksia locations are offering their menu for carryout, curbside pickup, delivery and limited dine-in service.
