French Toast


French Toast is a delightful little restaurant that is located at 161 E. Bethel Street in Bourbonnais. Owner Heather Lavine describes it as “a gourmet restaurant without the gourmet price.”

I created the French Toast site on a CMS to ensure that the maintenance of their online presence would disturb the fast paced environment of the kitchen. Meeting with Heather, the head cook and staff, I took their vision and direction with me into the final product. After taking all the photography on location during hours of normal operation, I developed the site with a fully customizable menu that is easy to update. I even got to sample some of the delicious foods myself, and let me tell you: It looks good, but it tastes excellent! All that you see on the site is what you get when you sit down for a meal at this top notch gourmet restaurant!
