“A True Portland Breakfast Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love living down the street from this place! I look forward to breakfast here more than any other place I've ever had breakfast. Small, quaint, often a wait - but well worth it., Service has always been friendly - not that stereotypical Portland "I don't really want to be doing this" type of service.

Their potatoes are always cooked to perfection, the portions are ample, and great drinks. I suggest the onion tart with over easy eggs and hollandaise sauce on top. Divine!

Oh yea - family friendly too!

“Ba-ba-ba-Benny & the Mets! Maybe Portland's best Benedict!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Breakfast is one of our favorite meals out, and Toast didn't disappoint! We ordered the Benny & the Mets eggs benedict and the Berry Delicious French Toast (sharing each other's dishes, we both got some sweet and some savory!). The whipped cream and fresh berries on the french toast were pure nirvana and that bacon...wow! Cooked perfectly and what taste! But the amazing Benny & the Mets benedict dish is something I'll go back for...and soon! The hollandaise was creamy and smooth and tastes exactly the way good hollandaise should, the eggs were prepared magnificently, and don't even get me started on the rosti--an uber medallion of seasoned potatoes that, while a sufficient helping in and of itself, could have been 10 times that helping size and I still wouldn't have been satisfied. Dang, dang, dang, I love those rosti spuds! Thank you staff at Toast! See you soon!

“Organic, diner style.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Most yummy breakfast! Homemade English muffins, the prettiest poached eggs ever, beautiful bacon. The hashbrowns are some of the best I ever had. Small and cozy, sometimes you have a bit of a wait, but well worth it.
