Someone once told me that you should never name a food or restaurant after anything unappetizing. Burnt toast is unappealing. As was my experience today. Went in for breakfast with a friend on a Sunday morning. We met at 9am and the place was already jam packed but because there were only two of us, we were quickly seated. Waters... More

Menu selections are unique and delicious. Breakfast Tortilla Wrap, Asparagus & Gruyere Cheese Omelette and the Chilaquiles are my favorites & recommend. They have a nice lunch menu to choose from and I have not had any issue with seating or service on any occasion that I've stopped to dine at Burnt Toast. My last visit was with my whole... More

Sometimes, it has been better than others, and sometimes worse then others. Today was a good day, which is encouraging. We were seated promptly, and greeted promptly by our table server Sue. Of the components of... More

Save your time and go to a better resturant. It's really not that hard to do breakfast right, but burnt toast will find a way to make it so. Starting with trying to get seated, the hostess felt nesessary to talk with her friends, give hugs, make a few plans for when she gets off, really just about anything but... More

This is one of my favorite breakfast places, the selection of dishes is outstanding. We have tried many different dishes and they have all turned out to be delicious and filling. Service is what one would expect from an upscale breakfast/lunch establishment.

All in all, we were very pleased! The waiting time was non existant. We went at close to noon on a Saturday. Friendly and attentive staff. Service was prompt and the turn around time with our food was fast! They have a substantial kid's menu as well. Open and comfortable atmosphere as well. Our food was prepared well and very... More

The food is fantastic and the owner is a friend. You have to have the french toast, it's the best. And I love the pumpkin pancakes too when they are in season.

Only breakfast place I enjoy because it is always consistent on service and food. The food is of great quality! Try their fresh squeezed orange juice, there breakfast tacos but the best is the Chocolate chip pancakes!
