Favorite Bread for French Toast?

French toast comes in all sizes and shapes: the average thick white bread, brioche, challah, some nice cinnamon-raisin, or maybe the special Italian holiday bread Panettone. But Cakespy has me salivating for this croissant French toast from the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, Oregon. "This is possibly the most wonderful way to bring day-old croissants back to life that I have ever seen. These compressed crescents contained rich, buttery flavor in every bite." Mmm, repurposed croissants. Ever tried this? Or have another favorite spin on French toast?
