This place has the same naming issues as Shake Shack because while their coffee is great, it’s their toast that keeps us coming back. The slices of bread are super thick and covered in butter and cinnamon sugar in a way that, if you did this at home, it would probably take you a week to clean up. Then get a fresh coconut to wash it down or maybe actually opt for coffee instead because theirs is fantastic.
