I understand Toast is closed, and that's too bad. We enjoyed our dinner there, though I suspect that part of that is due to the fact that my GF and I just love going places together. Menu is limited, but sometimes that is good [as another reviewer pointed out]. The food itself was good, but that may not be good... More

This place wasn't awful - but it wasn't good either. I went with a friend for breakfast on a weekend, and it was really just ok. I have no idea why the reviews on here are so high. Very limited menu, which is completely ok (and often preferable) if the menu items look good, which they didn't. When we got... More

We had a great breakfast at Toast in Carmel Valley. My wife had the prime rib and eggs which she loved and I had the chorizo omelette. The omelette was very good, but I should have remembered why I should not eat chorizo! Service was great and we sat on their outside patio. Enjoyable meal.

We stopped while wine tasting in Carmel Valley, CA. The service is great. The staff is attentive and seems really committed to your dining experience. Our iced teas were good. I had an amazing grilled vegetable sandwich on yummy Focchia bread spead generously with pesto. The vegetables and tasty mozzarella cheese were topped with an outstanding balsamic vinegar reduction.

I have personally been there and sat 2 hours without a wait person checking up on me, asking... More

Loved the friendly atmosphere -- lots of hugs for locals and a very welcoming "come on in and hang out" atmosphere. Waitress was friendly and took time to chat with us. Nice breeze on a summer evening as front doors are propped open. Some ups and downs with the food -- one in our party disappointed because her chicken was... More

Breakfasts are about $10 and coffee with free refills $2; the most expensive item is the chicken fried steak at $12 ........ which is what we chose today. I was a little worried about the gravy, so I asked to have it in a separate bowl. No need for worries - the steak was a thin sliced and battered with... More
