At Daily Dose, thick, toasted egg bread provides a sturdy anchor for creamy avocado layered with pieces of crispy bacon and topped with two sliced hard-boiled eggs.

This health and sustainability-focused Scottsdale eatery serves up avocado toast on hearty nine-grain wheatberry bread capped with smashed avocado and tangy marinated tomatoes along with crunchy radishes and pea sprouts.

Lon’s at The Hermosa Inn


Avocado lovers will swoon over Lon’s avocado toast served on ciabatta bread brushed with extra virgin olive oil and then toasted. Chef Alejandro Martinez slathers the toast with ripe, smashed avocados drizzled with Meyer lemon oil mixed with cherry tomato halves.  He stacks two sunny-side up eggs on top and then finishes with house-pickled onions, locally grown arugula and julienned radish.


Prep & Pastry


To fuel your day, check out the robust avocado toast at Prep & Pastry. The brunch dish features a slice of sourdough toast spread with snappy, herb-rich guacamole, a mound of leafy arugula dressed with lemon vinaigrette, a handful of cherry tomato halves and a shower of marinated feta cheese sprinkled with dukkah, a Middle Eastern nut, seed and spice mix.




Built on toasted, locally-made sourdough with just the right amount of crunch, Berdena’s avocado toast sports a layer of smashed avocado brightened with lemon juice, dusted with flaky sea salt and then finished with zesty red pepper flakes. The preparation is simple, but the flavors shine. Order as a stand-alone or add an egg, and whatever you do, pair it with Berdena's signature iced Honey Lavender Latte.
