Where to go: Rad’s
Address: 4733 E. 126th St., Carmel
What to get: Challah French toast
Anna’s take: I hadn’t heard of Rad’s before visiting, and so hopefully this review will get the word out. And it is, in fact, rad. A cute, cozy coffee, breakfast and lunch spot near 126th Street and Gray Road, Rad’s offers traditional breakfast and lunch meals with a chef’s take on each item. My favorite was the Challah French toast. Delicious with a perfect French toast texture, it comes with a choice of bacon or sausage. I also tried the build-your-own three-egg omelet ($12.50) and the avocado toast ($11.50), which was loaded with avocado, chorizo, an egg and pico de gallo. Rad’s opened three years ago, shortly after the O’Malia’s grocery closed. The name is in honor of chef Josh Hall’s grandfather-in-law, who was named Rad. Rad was a World War II vet who loved breakfast.
