Always good, but slipping a bit

We have been coming here for years and willing to pay the higher prices for decent food since the atmosphere is good and a good scene. But this last time it has seemed to have taken a downturn. It had been over a year since being there due to a relocation and now it seems that the riff raff is... read more

Just a couple of streets away from my b & b, I was a frequent visitor for lunch and it was a great place to meet friends. Delicious homemade soups, sandwiches, salads, omelettes.

If there is a wait go ahead and wait. This is one of the best breakfasts around. We waited about 20 minutes on a sunny holiday morning. Indoor or outdoor seating and an eclectic menu await. Breakfast entrees offer potatoes, fruits or a chopped salad side. The chopped salad was a nice compliment to the best huevos rancheros I have... More

Lovely place to have lunch. Good menu, everything well cooked, good quality and well prepared. Pleasant outside dining. Always a line which shows how popular it is. One of the staff - Luigi - is always very friendly and remembers us when we return ( we live in the UK) this always makes you feel special.

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
