Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Dream Dishes: Caramel Apple French Toast

Victorian Cafe offers a craveable delight


  • Mark Williford
The Caramel Apple French Toast at the Victorian Cafe is a new level of sugary decadence.

A dish to dream about: The dish starts and finishes with an extra touch—made from Texas toast covered in graham cracker crumbs before being cooked, allowing for a delicious crust to form. Each bite is accompanied by a generous drizzle of homemade caramel—and if that doesn’t have your sweet tooth aching, dollops of whipped cream sit on each piece. For a taste of freshness, slightly softened Granny Smith apple slices top it all off.

Complementary beverage: If you’re feeling in an all out fall kind of mood, try the Victorian’s fresh cinnamon iced tea. The Victorian is also famous for its variety of mimosas and its Chai Hot Toddy.
