These Avocado Toasts Are Musts for Brunch in the Hudson Valley

For healthy, trendy, and downright delicious avocado toasts, book a brunch at one of these Hudson Valley hotspots.

It happens like clockwork every weekend. What begins as an innocent scroll through Instagram results in feelings of #FOMO as you browse photo after photo of the pancake platters, fruit salads, and fluffy omelets that build the brunch spreads of your dreams. In all of them, one dish shines as the pinnacle of brunching goals: avocado toast.

What began as a millennial trend has since transformed into a breakfast classic. One taste, and you’ll understand the appeal. Creamy avocado is better than butter on top of warm, perfectly crunchy toast. Add in a handful of extra fixings and a freshly baked loaf of bread, and you have a mouthwatering morning meal that will keep you going until lunch. Luckily for Hudson Valley residents, local restaurants have risen to the avocado toast challenge. Grab a slice and join the breakfast revolution.

Trust Beacon Bread Company to serve an unpretentious toast that is packed with flavor. Unsurprisingly, top-of-the-line loaves are the secret ingredient here. All toast orders come on the shop’s signature harvest grain bread, which is made fresh daily. The wholesome nuttiness packed in each slice pairs beautifully with the smooth, buttery texture of the avocado and a hint of lime on top. Add a couple poached eggs and a kick from the eatery’s homemade hot sauce to spice it up.

Bobo’s Cafe is a Westchester favorite when it comes to delicious, on-the-go brunch foods that rival the premade meals at Starbucks. At one of four locations, indulge in a wide variety of avocado toasts that are sure to leave you feeling satisfied. Go for the Bo-licious for a piece of multigrain bread piled high with smashed avocado, arugula salad, red pepper flakes, and lemon vinaigrette. For a more south-of-the-border vibe, choose the Pico-chu toast for a slice of multigrain topped with avocado and pico de gallo. If you’re focused on your protein, the G.O.A.T. toast has everything you need with mashed avocado, goat cheese, and a sunny-side-up egg. Last but certainly not least, the plain toast is exactly what you’d expect: avocado on bread.
