I love the food but the service sucks. Today we arrived at 9am. Many tables were empty yet we were not seated. We cant overwhelm the kitchen so you have to wait! What???? Ask people to wait outside while there are empty tables? Who manages this place? Please look at how many customers you are turning away! The wait staff... More

Great spot for breakfast. The breakfast menu isn't huge, but more than adequate. Pancakes, waffles ' eggs were all delicious. Parking is easy on the street.

I few people have recommended Toast to me and I finally got a chance to try it the other day for lunch. My daughter and I sat outside amid perfect weather and decided on breakfast food even though it was just after 12.

The best place for brunch. Super friendly staff. Cute decor and possibly the best breakfast I had in a long time. Lots of vegetarian and gluten free options. The carrot cake pancakes were out of this world. The special was a crab hash and it was amazing

Classic breakfast menu, with some fun and seasonal options. Fast service, fairly priced. The service staff hustles to meet your needs. They just need to be more personable.

A little loud and may take time to wait in line but the food is delicious. I usually get a special omelette with a huge cup of coffee. My grandson delights in the french toast. In anything you choose be assured it is fresh and delicious.

So I enjoyed it the first time even though the service was beyond slow. The food was ok but our second time will be our last. It wasn't overly busy and the service was really poor. The food came out almost warm not hot and my stuffed French toast had barely any stuffing

Eggs--all styles, oatmeal, French toast, waffles, pancakes, bacon and sausage--turkey or real; pretty much whatever you'd want for breakfast whenever it's required, which for me is pretty much always. Parking on the weekend could be a problem in that part of town. We went during the week---parking not a problem, nor was being seated.

The restaurant has gotten larger from the first time we visited and so far we've just sampled breakfast. The menu offers some great dishes and the staff, for the most part, are quick and professional.
