This place was much better maybe 6-7 years ago that it is now. It was also more packed. Their sandwiches were better done and they have friendlier staff. Now its just okay and their price keep climbing so i switched to urth.

Great place for breakfast. Short wait efficiently managed. Good selection of omelettes and "scramblettes", drinks, smoothies etc. Helpful service. Nice people, good service. Quintessential LA.

Went to Toast on Saturday for at two. The lines were still long, but we were able to snag a coveted table for two outside pretty quickly. I had the Thai chicken salad, light on the noodles, which is always a winner. My daughter, also a creature of habit, had the stuffed French toast. It's amazing! As usual, it was... More

A famed spot for brunch and deservedly so. The menu is diverse and there truly is something for everyone. The pancakes are probably enough to feed two very hungry people! The poached eggs with avocado and bacon were also a hit with us. If you do have the extra stomach capacity, wash it all down with a Red Velvet shake... More

So this was to be our first breakfast out in LA and what a great find. The savoury dishes were excellent, our friend loved his Huveos rancheros and my eggs on peppers and tomatoes were perfect. Cold dishes also delivered, granola so tasty and large that you didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. My teenage sons... More

We had been told this place was tough to get into, but as we were here on vacation, we breezed in on a weekday morning wit no problem. Menu is so extensive, we had to take extra time to study it thoroughly, but enjoyed excellent specialty drinks (latte and mocha) while we read. Omelettes are very nicely prepared and the... More

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. It offers a big selection of egg dishes, soups, bakery items and salads. Everything is freshly made and has great taste. Will definitely come again.
