    Eat This: French Toast (for a Fine Purpose)
    The Beachcomber Cafe
    The Beachcomber Cafe's Cinnamon Roll French Toast.

    Your job: Get to the restaurant. Our job: Help you order. This week, NBCLA's Eat This journey takes us out for...

    Cinnamon Roll French Toast: Winter's just weeks away. Weather's turning. This breakfast takes one warm-the-cockles foodstuff -- the cinnamon roll -- and does a mouthwatering mash-up with another warm-the-cockler cuisine -- French toast.

    Where might it be? The Beachcomber Cafe at Malibu Pier

    Is it part of a special event? Yes indeedy. The Beachcomber is hosting a Toys for Tots morning on Saturday, December 5th from 7-10AM. Diners are invited to bring a toy -- unwrapped, of course -- to the restaurant. The toy should be over ten dollars. And then, after the toy donating, the diner will get treated to a comp breakfast, courtesy of The Beachcomber.

    Scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage: The other choice besides Cinnamon Roll French Toast.

    Is coffee or tea included? Yes.

    Is it one breakfast per one person donating a toy? Yes. So don't be tempted to round up everyone you know and expect French Toasts for the whole table. A better idea: ask your friends to each buy a toy, and then join you.

    About that weather turning: Reports are saying five days of rain are just around the corner. So if you're going to do a post-breakfast beach walk, now is probably the time. Walk that syrupy, bready deliciousness off, nice, toy-buying people. Walk it off.
