Nice spot to enjoy an afternoon

Very nice spot to enjoy lunch and a drink. The food was good but small portions. For my boyfriend who eats like a linebacker it was a nice appetizer for him. The drinks were great and the patio is very nice. The staff was very nice and friendly. Will definitely visit again.

This was the 2nd Time having dinner at Toast. A few things to note it took Almost 15 minutes to have someone take our drink order than another 10-15 for drinks to come out. The food was ok -not wonderful. They forgot one food item but when realized they apologized and took the first round of drinks off our bill... More

Although the menu was limited, our salads were perfect! Each ingredient was top notch and the way it was composed, we could appreciate each bite. There was a surprise cookie for each of us at the end. Both the indoor and outdoor space are inviting. Plan to go back to take advantage of the wine selection.

Toast is in my neighborhood and it's perfect for a spur of the moment dining spot. The wine list is great. The food is delicious and you can order a number of small plates to try different foods. It's reasonable and very pleasant.

Visited this place with a friend I hadn't seen in months to catch up. great location with outdoor seating. the best part for me is watching all the people walk by. it was happy hour and we had the most adorable and relateable server.

Been here a few times with a group of friends. The wine selection is great, food is delicious but limited, and the atmosphere is really cozy. Always a fun night. Service has been hit or miss; everyone is nice just not always the most attentive.

Toast has been a pleasant mid-afternoon stopping point during multiple weekend walks on College Avenue. Sit in the shade under an umbrella or in the sun if you prefer, relax, and watch the pedestrians and cars pass by. There is also indoor seating if you prefer. Toast serves lunch and dinner, but to date, I have only visited for drinks... More

we once had a drink here and although we liked the drink, we found service slow. When we complained to someon who looked like the owner, his response was..."guess the company of your friends is not enough for you! ". Well, we figured that was just a failed attemot at humor so we tried the restaurant about a month later.... More

Setting: Right on College. Parking could be a challenge depending on hours. Nice outdoor patio right on the street with heaters for cold days. Nice warm inside decor. Food: Seems to follow same principles as many Berkeley restaurants these days. Fresh and local - therefore smaller menu. Bread and warm olives are very nice. The chicken was very juicy. Service:...
