Very crowded and long lines on the weekends for breakfast or brunch. Food very good, but I don't usually like to wait so long for breakfast. Has a trendy feel, similar to Urth Café in Beverly Hills but a more extensive breakfast menu.

Delicious 👍👍 It has options for everything, eggs, soups, meat, even choices for vegetarians!! Plus, there is a little bakery with all kinds of cookies, cupcakes and toys! Obviously the sizes are big, so don't make the mistake I did and don't order 2 dishes 😝 the service is good, and it's always full. It closes early. If you like... More

The menu at Toast is complete enough to satisfy 'most anyone; but, to us the appealing part is the breakfast section, from which you can order all day. Why don't more restaurants catch on that people work all day and/or all night? Flexibility of schedule is required in business these days, except, it seems, at restaurants. Thankfully, Toast bucks this... More

This cute cafe is beautifully decorated, it's menu has amazing options and the food is even better. The service is great and the overall atmosphere is really warm. We were tourists, but it seemed like a spot the locals go too as well.

My friend and I needed to have an early dinner before a concert, so we chose to dine at Toast. I was craving breakfast for dinner and ordered the most divine egg white omelet (with veggies of my choice), delicious potatoes, and rye toast. It was our server's first day and he was working very hard to ensure our satisfaction.... More

Everything was excellent. The "favorite omelet" comes with a great combination of cheese and avocado and mushrooms + bowl of fruits, some small sweets from the bakery. Also strong wonderful coffee. And enjoyed the professional friendly service and crowd...

Food was average... just... average... about on par with every brunch place I've been to in the area. Nothing particularly amazing about it that warrants the long line that forms in the morning on weekends. After reading rave reviews, my wife and i decided to try it and despite being seated prominently inside, and a full crew working, no one... More
