The Mango Inn Bed & Breakfast was built in 1915 and was the private residence of former Lake Worth Mayor Thomas "Jack" Barton who was also publisher of the Lake Worth Herald, the oldest buinsess in Lake Worth. 

Mango-infused French toast served at The Mango Inn Bed & Breakfast in Lake Worth for the Taste History Culinary Tour hosted for residents of the Wycliffe Country Club.  This breakfast cuisine was made using mangoes grown on the property.  The origin of French toast dates to the 4th and 5th Century where it appeared in the Roman cookboook Apicius which described French toast as soaking bread in milk although at that time it was not called French toast.  15th-century English recipes described that recipe of soaking bread in milk (or eggs)as "pain perdu" which in French means  "lost bread" referring to stale bread that was enlivened by soaking it in milk or eggs. It's believed that with the immigration of people to America, this French-named dish ("pain perdu")  was referred to as "that French toast."
