We go to Toasties almost every time we visit Pacific Grove. The food is always fresh, the atmosphere is more local than touristy. Sea food is great and they have surprises like crab-melts. (yummy!) It is right in the middle of Pacific Grove within walking distance to the museum, post office, ice cream, and coffee house.

The food was up to par with our last visit, and staff friendly as always. You have your choice of regular or french roast drip coffee, plus many teas. It's a full breakfast menu with eggs, omelets, pancakes and waffles.

Food was average and service staff seemed very inexperienced. It was conveniently located in the center of town.

You've got to understand why you're there. It's not the ambiance. This is a down-to-earth breakfast and lunch place, friendly, family-run, and locals like to eat there. Their breakfasts are the best -- better than a couple of other places that are better known, aimed at tourists, and more expensive. When we're with a friend from out of town, we... More

We have been going to Toasties for longer than I can remember and to be honest, it was always not only our favorite breakfast spot but also the favorite spot for our friends and family when they come to town to visit. We have been coming to eat here less and less. Each time telling ourselves that we need to... More

Cute little cafe, very conducive to small group meal.... a favorite of locals. The service is good. The prices are average for this area. For me, the food is so-so. I'm not impressed with taste or presentation. If you are happy with "average", this is the place.
