My pancakes were light and fresh; however my wife's eggs were overcooked. Service was good! The restaurant was very clean and the staff extremely pleasant.

A unique restaurant in the Gas Light Village of Petoskey. When you come in the door and see the coffee cups around the door you know this is not a fast food chain restaurant. The food is all home made and excellent. We bike from Charlevoix to Petoskey every Saturday to enjoy the home made soups. At least four types... More

Visited Petoskey after having a very full lunch at Mackinac's Island's Grand Hotel. Decided to find restaurant with a lighter fare instead of a full menu. Soups and sandwiches, wraps are featured as well as a limited number of other dishes. There were 5 varieties of soup and a good variety of sandwiches and wraps on the menu. The chili... More

This is a fun spot! Fair trade coffee!!! Good breakfast English muffin egg sandwiches. Great decor. Staff is friendly. Lines are long but the staff works very hard so we didn't have to wait too long.

We were looking for an inexpensive but interesting place for a light dinner our last day in Petoskey and ran across this hip little coffee shop. You order at the counter from a blitz of blackboards with the days' fare chalked across the walls. I'd thought I'd just have a salad, but when I saw vegetarian lasagna listed, I had... More

As a barista I was disappointed, but I would consider coming back to try something else and maybe the food. My mocha tasted lack luster. I believe it was probably their choice of chocolate and the quality of foaming the milk that just didn't produce a high quality latte.

We ate lunch twice at Roast and Toast while on vacation, visiting Petoskey. The service line moves fast and the service people are helpful and really fun to talk to. Our sandwiches were very tasty with fresh ingredients and homemade bread. I also ordered soup and it was homemade, freshly prepared. The atmosphere is wholesome, bustling and fun. Definitely a...

Great atmosphere and incredibly good food. The coffee is out of this world as is the espresso. We drove 20 miles from our vacation site to get coffee and eats from Roast and Toast!
