We were pleasantly surprised when we entered this wonderfully decorated, cool restaurant. Nice crowd of people for a Sat morning of Memorial Day weekend. There is a small outdoor seating area. My party of three all had the smoked salmon omelet that came with potatoes and choice of toast. I substituted fruit for my potatoes. The fruit was fresh and... More

I think this place is a hit or miss kind of place. I ate at the one in Montclair and it was awesome! This time I came down to asbury park and decided to come here for lunch and it was not a good experience. The wait wasn't that bad (25 minutes). The food was just okay... We had the... More

The location is great and the atmosphere is very trendy and cool - love the inside but the food was disappointing. It wasn't bad at all just didn't live up to expectations or to what it looked like it should be - it was a typical brunch place. If you're looking for a regular place to have brunch, try it.

I moved to Asbury last year but I've been visiting for years. I always went to toast when staying over - it's just so good! Living here makes it even easier. The staff is always so nice and pleasant and the food is well priced and well made. Ingredients are fresh and the dishes are delicious! I love the california... More

Breakfast in a place that is NOT ihop, though the carrot cake pancakes were reminiscent. Too much thin white icing, but then, I love butter to cut the sweet anyway.

Have come here three times now in the last few months. If you like breakfast, come and try one of their interesting pancakes or waffles. If you are gluten free, they make "Wildfire" pancakes and waffles my friend raves about (because it's almond flour, not rice flour.) Their carrot cake pancakes were very tasty. The staff is pleasant, smiling and... More

Stopped in with some co-workers for lunch. I ordered the shrimp Po boy, another person ordered the grilled cheese, and another a wrap. The waitress was friendly but couldn't offer any recommendations and never had some of the items we asked about. She got us drinks quickly, placed our order, brought the food out quickly, brought back extra napkins without... More

By most accounts, Toast is the toast of the town in Asbury Park. Unfortunately, toast is about the only thing is does well (as is well done, almost burnt toast). I would like to point out first to the folks in the kitchen that an omelette of "crab and asparagus with hollandaise sauce" requires at a minimum, that the folks... More
