We could not locate a Breakfast stop, near the Outlets, so we decided to pop into to Portsmouth. We found the Toast, and were very pleased. First rate service, and the variety of choices will impress you. Excellent all around!

They serve the largest pieces of french toast about 2 inches thick from homemade bread. I got the monster breakfast which it definitely was, and very delicious and filling. My wife got the Monte Cristo and it was huge and delicious as well.

Yes. But you have to search for them on the menu.
Are they open for Breakfast on Saturdays? TripAdvisor info says they open at noon!

Nevermind... their own website says they're open at 7:00am daily... makes more sense... the TripAdvisor times are outdated.
