Great brunch spot! We had the Crab Hash & the Carrot Cake Pancakes. Both were delicious originals. The atmosphere is casual comfy and the staff were friendly & helpful. Everything is also very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this place!

Gluten Free Waffles!!! Fresh berries!Yes! Coffee was delicious and plentiful. Large portions for breakfast and fresh homemade taste. Convenient paid parking on street. Great for weekend breakfast/lunch and shopping trip. So friendly, quick service and good value.

Came in briefly to get a chopped Mexican salad for lunch, wasn't particularly mindblowing but it was still quite a good salad.

There is a wait every time we go, it is always great and worth the wait...be advised that the portions here are HUGE! An egg sandwich feeds two people easily and the pancakes are delicious.

Toast is only open for breakfast & lunch, but the menu offers a wide variety of options, and all items are available all day. I devoured my "Huevos Rancheros" on my first visit here, and ate every bite of my Lobster Cobb Salad... More

Stopped here on a whim during a bike ride along the shore. On a Sunday around 1:00 there was a 30 minute wait for a table for two.

With a tagline like, "Peace, Love, Pancakes" you have to try the pancakes when at Toast. You'll find them in several varieties including Buttermilk, Strawberry, Red Velvet, & Carrot Cake. They're good, but I prefer the French Toast, actually, specifically the "Bella Nutella" - which is Nutella stuffed french toast with sliced strawberries on top. Delicious. There is also Stuffed...

Food was mediocre at best. Unless you pay cash they will charge you more when using a credit card. A total rip off. Don't bother there are better places than this.
