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

The atmosphere is cool and the food is okay (hit or miss) but the staff is beyond rude. Today the host was sending people back outside to wait in the 20 degree temp for 25+ minutes because people were in the way.. Actually he said "it's cold.. that's life". Not a very warm welcome to patiently waiting customers.
