96 Purchase St, Rye
The Granola Bar of Rye is the place to go if you’re looking for a ton of different options. Start by picking your choice of bread, then decide if you want your avocado topped with feta & crushed red pepper flakes, bacon & parm jalapeno sauce, buffalo chicken, or a classic hard boiled egg. If you can’t pick, build your own!
124 Wildey St, Tarrytown
If you’re in a hurry but are looking for more than just plain avocado toast, check out Grassroots Kitchen. This restaurant is known for quick service and puts a little Mexican twist on avocado toast. Their multigrain toast is served with refried beans, a fried egg, and pico de gallo. For those with eating restrictions, ask to make it vegan or gluten-free!
266 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck
At Greenlife, you can get all the yum without the guilt. Mashed avocado, sweet potato, and chia seeds served on gluten-free toast certainly meets Greenlife’s goal of a healthy, nutritious, and delicious meal. For extra protein, order it with an egg served any style on top.
71 Westchester Ave, Pound Ridge
At Pound Ridge’s The Kitchen Table, you don’t have to be an early riser in order to snag this brunch favorite. The restaurant’s classic iteration, served with crushed red pepper, EVOO, and a squeeze of lemon, is served all day. This guilt-free indulgence is a great start to your morning (or afternoon). There’s also a more breakfast-like version that really brings out the farm-to-table feel, served with an over-easy egg on a bed of microgreens.
7 Huguenot St, New Rochelle
Open for breakfast and lunch, Pop’s Espresso Bar in New Rochelle is small, but packs big flavor. Their avocado toast combines spice from chili powder, nuttiness from pepitas, and a tang from goat cheese to give the toast an earthy, Mediterranean vibe. And with the option to add a poached egg for only $1.50, the decision is easy and well worth it.
