I love the Friendly Toast for more than the food. The super fun, vintage, cutesy aesthetic of the place is only accentuated with the food. Their breakfast, brunch and lunch plates and sides are great. The menu offers a very wide variety of foods that...More

We ate there with friends for breakfast. They have some unusual dishes. The décor is definitely bohemian, but it seemed clean enough to me. The staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.

Food isn't bad but the place needs a deep cleaning. We were not impressed, bathrooms were a mess and the place needs a day off from selling food and a day of deep cleaning.

There is a wait on the weekends, but it's well worth it. Their menu is full of not your everyday as well as the normal meals. Food is delivered in a timely fashion and served hot.

The Friendly toast is overrated. Very mediocre food. Greasy eggs, toast, and hash browns. The avocado toast sounded delicious, but the avocados were completely brown. Avoid.

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 the TripAdvisor times are outdated.
