Breakfast...very good

This place is popular I know and it was a 5 minute walk from our hotel. It was quite busy when we got there. It has a good number of (covered) places to sit outside in the shade on a sunny morning. The service was good and the food very good. We had breakfast - 3 eggs with bacon and... read more

We stopped here from brunch one morning . The area is very nice with convenient parking right across the street. The wait was short and the service excellent. The food was very good and the pace of the dining was relaxed , we liked that after a busy night. I highly recommend this place.

Went for coffee and cakes in the late morning. Food and service were good, clientele were hip. More beards and tattoo's than you can shake a stick at.

Staff are wonderful and efficient. Food is amazing and consistent. I go here mostly on the weekends but get there before 9:30am or the line is long but it's worth the wait. Tim

The coffee is excellent here and the menu has a wide selection of healthy, hearty meals. The staff offer valet parking and they are also happy to call you a cab when you are ready.

Michael Connelly includes restaurants in his crime novels, and many times his characters will take someone to Toast. Good enough for me! It's a neat little place with tables on the inside and out. I had the waffle with caramel and bananas! DELICIOUS! My daughter had a breakfast burrito and it was so big she couldn't finish it all. She... More

I went for a business breakfast to Toast and it was just alright. The service lacked, and the food was a bit mediocre. However, the atmosphere is great for people watching.

We had a customized omlette with all fresh ingredients and the Shakshuka (Israeli Huevos Rancheros) with nice chop chop salad. The service was excellent, quick and timely. Get there before 9 on the weekend before the lines start! Valet service is a must (Hey this is LA - $6). Take an outside seat to view the amazing collection of cars... More

Toast has really great soup. I would recommend having some no matter what else you're getting. I happen to like their basic pancakes, but it's all I've ordered in the pancake realm. I'm sure the other pancakes are great, too. . Eggs were done exactly how I ordered and they offer veggie sausage which makes me very happy. The wraps... More
