Found this place near our hotel for lunch and it had a lot of folks here, busy downtown kind of place. Vegans would like it, I had a mozzarella and ham panini. The fresh ingredients were good but the Italian ham was so thick it tasted mainly of salt. Yeah, I know someone complaining of too much on the sandwich,... More

By far the most amazing sandwich shop in durham. Not only does it have tasty sandwiches(like the three cheese pannini) but also amazing soups and salads. You will not regret stopping by.

Arugula with mint leaves fresh Parmesan cheese with this amazing olive oil based dressing left me wanting more and more of this salad. I also had the avocado lemon crustini also with fresh parm and I loved it! Space is a tad bit tight I would suggest you get your food to go. Otherwise an awesome spot for lunch!

My family and I visited Toast after visiting Duke University. It was recommended to us by a Duke alum and was a nice place for a light bite to eat for dinner. We ordered the panini with prosciutto, tomato and mozzarella and another one with sausage and spinach. My grandma got cauliflower cheese soup and to went perfectly with the... More

Toast is reliable. Always tasty, always fresh. Kelli is always smiling! The food is satisfying, with vegetarian options and tasty soups. I am partial to the 3 crostini and salad option, but the paninos are fabulous. I can't wait until their noodle shop opens!

What a fabulous spot for a quick bite! Friendly staff, delicious food and great wine selections. The butternut squash soup was fabulous! We even managed to get the ingredients for the warm marinated olives. Seating is limited.

We were driving from Richmond to Charlotte for work and we're in Durham at lunch time. Thanks to reviews on here and Yelp we found this place. You had to view for a table but it wasn't too bad on a rainy Monday at noon. I had the mushroom soup and it was vegetarian! It was so good. I also... More

Such an excellent lunch option. And as a vegetarian, I was thrilled with all the interesting options. Each of the three types of crostini was unique and delicious, as was the vegetarian rice soup. Even the iced tea was excellent. Toast is definitely a favorite!

It was really difficult to decide what to eat at Toast as everything looked and sounded amazing. I finally decided on the 3 crostini's with soup and the food did not disappoint! I tried the crostini's with goat cheese/honey/pepper, avocado/lemon/grana Padano, and beets/mint/orange/robiola. The combination of flavors on all of these was unique and tasted divine. I loved that there... More

There are sandwich places and then there is Toast. A cornerstone to the reemerged downtown Durham, I've loved coming to sit at Toast and monthly watch additional great places open. But I digress. Simply put, Toast has the best soup. A combination of one of their very homemade soups with a sandwich is arguably one of the best, high quality... More
