I go to Burnt Toast quite often. The breakfast is fabulous. I am working my way through the omelets and I love the pancakes. The hot chocolate is to die for! I always take one of their large and tasty salads home for dinner. The service here is as wonderful as the food. It's busy especially on the weekends but... More

Excellent service, food is a step above the ordinary, plenty of options. And the hot chocolate is wonderful. It's always busy on the weekends but they move people through without making you feel rushed. Highly recommend any of the multiple combinations of omelettes.

After reading and hearing from several people I had to find out why this place has so many loyal patrons. It is a very easy relaxing and clean restaurant with excellent breakfast food. I have not tried lunch yet. The prices are no different then the little diners in town I had expected to pay much more. Service was outstanding... More

A friend and I went to Burnt Toast today for my birthday. I live approximately 50 mile away and will go there for breakfast because it is so good and the service is outstanding. I probably should be a food critic because I have been in the food service Industry all my life and will travel to wherever it is... More

I go to Burnt Toast often for breakfast and I've never had a bad meal. They have a lot to choose from and in our weekly advertizer they always have a 10% off coupon, so that is helpful. It has an open feel to the restaurant, wait staff is nice and love to take my girl friends there for a... More

Burnt Toast is one of my "go to" places for breakfast. I don't think that I have ever been disappointed. I especially recommend the steak and eggs with skirt steak. There are long wait times on the weekend, so it is best to plan visits carefully.

Burnt Toast combines a great breakfast with a great atmosphere. You may have to wait for a table on the weekends, but it is well worth it.

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
