Cheesecake Factory changed their French toast on the brunch menu?

My wife and I have been to brunch at Cheesecake Factory several times (yes, I know it is not gourmet food) and always enjoyed their French Toast Napoleon, which was 3 large pieces of what I believe was brioche french toast with strawberries and "Chantilly cream" (basically a thin drizzle of whipped cream) and a few pecans. It was easily enough for the two of us to share. Went back a couple of weeks ago and it was changed. Now it was made from French bread and it was 4 slices that were nowhere near as large as you got before and we weren't really full after sharing it. I noticed there was a new French toast item on the menu for $3 less which I now realize is the same thing as the Napoleon but without the strawberries and cream. If we do French toast again, we'll probably just do that and get something else in addition.

BTW here is a picture of what it used to be:

The new one looks kind of like this (but it is not from CF; I just realized I have a photo on my phone that I should post):

Amusingly (or maybe not), I found it listed on someone's list of the worst breakfasts you can order at a restaurant, in terms of unhealthiness. Maybe that is why they changed it.

Has anyone else noticed this? Did anything else change on the brunch menu? is there anything on the brunch menu that's still really good and enough for 2 to share?
