Toasties provided ample breakfast and lunch for us for 2 days while in Pacific Grove. Opened at 6 am (town is a little sleepy for early risers) and menu selection, food choices and preparation and finally the meals were excellent.

We visited Toasties for breakfast on our last day on the peninsula before heading home. Toasties was a place we visited often when we lived on the peninsula almost 20 years ago and remember many days the line going out the door with those waiting for a table. We were there very early on a Sunday morning so there was... More

I have lived in Monterey for 21 years and have never received worse service. The server was nice and tried to accommodate my diet restrictions. The owner wasn't having it at all. In a country where the 50% of the adult population is diabetic, I really don't understand. I recommend you go to the amazing red house which is practically... More

Every time we come to the Monterey Peninsula to visit family, one morning is always reserved for Toasties and their Huevos Rancheros. The owners and staff know most of their clients and greet all of them like family. Other members of my family prefer other delights on their breakfast menu, but I wouldn't trade their Mexican delight for anything.

Stopped at Toasted with friends who have eaten here before. We were able to sit outside and service was very good and food outstanding. I has the burritos with sausage and it came with potatoes. Very tasty.

Toasties is a delightful little café tucked away on a street corner in downtown Pacific Grove. The outdoor seating area has a wonderful mural on the side of the wall, which adds to the building's small town charm. My friend and I, clearly over ordered....but all of our food was wonderful. We shared strawberry French toast, cheese blintzes with whipped... More

A charming cafe in Pacific Grove. Friendly service and home style presentation. A little different from the larger cafe chains.
