This is one of my favorite places for breakfast. The pancakes are huge! If you feel like being really decadent try the red velvet pancakes. It's like having cake for breakfast. The coffee is also very good. The omelets and sandwiches are also great. Its the perfect place for a weekend breakfast.

Yes, the food was good but not great, definitely not great enough to justify the prices that they charged. The service was OK, but the restaurant is not conducive to having any type of conversation as the noise level was quite high. However, if you like to follow the 'In' crowd, then this is the place for you. Just be... More

The breakfast here is very good. I have personally had the French toast, pancakes, and omelettes which were all delicious. The restaurant gets very crowded on a Sunday morning so there may be a wait. The wait staff were friendly

The lunch menu was extremely limited and I finally ordered a Greek Salad and inquired if there were rolls available with lunch. She informed me they only side bread product was toast. I ordered my salad... More

I have eaten at all three Toasts and all three are consistently delicious; there is no difference with the quality of food or service. We usually go with a large group so we can order extras

I was not a big fan. The atmosphere was great. The staff was unattractive. We had to keep asking for refills. The fourth meal, of our party of four, came out 4 minutes later. This is never accept able. The food was pretty good. I have to say, I won't go back.

Refused to seat us outside after having to talk to 3 managers. Only people with dogs were allowed not people who are sweaty from road biking. Finally agreed then made us wait for spite. Food took forever and was cold.
