We stopped in for our last breakfast in Los Angeles. It's a very busy restaurant, but we (6) got a table right away. Their fresh fruit was beautiful and delicious. We each ordered a different breakfast selection - all very good, except the pancakes being nothing special. The bakery side was very busy as well, with lots of delicious looking... More

We went to a lot of LA restaurants during my trip and this was my favorite place. The desserts were amazing, but the food was just as great. I got a chicken ceasar wrap and my husband got a club sandwich. We also got "The Dip" appetizer which was fantastic. The group next to us all got breakfast and that... More

Have eaten here several times over the past few years and this place never disappoints! Staff is friendly and efficient. Have had breakfast here as well as lunch. The menu is large and I never know what to order and never order the same thing twice as it is always outstanding, so I like to try different things each time... More

Since moving to L.A., I have found that finding a great spot for breakfast can be more difficult than I imagined. That is why finding Toast was such a pleasant surprise. I warn you that the weekend crowds (anytime after 9:30-10, which seems to be when Angelenos are finally up) are atrocious. The food is amazing, whether it is for... More

I visited Toast for breakfast with my wife one day and spotted a famous DJ "Steve Aoki" anyway I heard it was a good place to get some breakfast. But I personally found everything to be just "Average" the food was ok, not amazing and not bad. Service was good. Did not like the layout of the restaurant and it... More

The concierge recommended Toast as a good spot near our hotel for Sunday brunch. As we walked down, the size of the crowd waiting at the corner for a table was a pretty good reason to turn around. Glad we didn't ! The wait was over 20 minutes, but it was worth it. We got a beaut table in the... More

Due to Toast's proximity to my home and the consistently high quality of its healthy and ginormous salads and unhealthily delicious layer cakes, I've never had a reason to comment unfavorably on anything I've been served there. Recently, however, after a long absence and curious to see if its previous high standards had been maintained, I revisited Toast. Since they... More

Toast is a perfect place to visit for brunch. The atmosphere at the place is very laid back. And the staff are very friendly and also very friendly to small kids. They cooks very good omelets and are very good to offer you special needs e.g. omelet made of only egg white. Their omelets are tasty and the fruits on... More

This was a really great restaurant. The food I got was so fresh and delicious! The staff was great! We got our food so quickly, and we were quite thankful, because we were super hungry! I have never ate at this restaurant before, but I can say that I will definitely eat here again. I also got the chance to... More

We had no idea what to expect of this restaurant with dinning on the sidewalk. We had a reservation so we did not wait for a table. but those with out tables were waiting for 15 - 20 minutes. It was our first visit. But we were pleasantly surprised. The meal was good and to our surprise a couple of... More
