The food. Here was very good, huge portions so ask for a take home box. The eggs and pancakes are very good and they have a lot of specialty pancake/waffle breakfast options. They are always busy but worth the wait if you have too.

Overall we enjoy having breakfast at Burnt toast. The food has always been good and comes out fresh and warm. We have tried a variety of items on the menu and haven't been disappointed with anything. My only reason for not being 5 star is the wait and the waiting area. While I don't mind waiting for a table, as... More

Don't let the lines fool you. We came on a Saturday morning around 11am with a group of 5 and we were sitting down in 20 minutes. The service and food are top notch. Lots of yummy food on their menu.

We had breakfast and the food was good. Waitstaff was pleasant and service prompt. Menu selection more than adequate and portions were large.

My family gets together with an assortment of teenage nieces, great grandmother, toddlers, and Baby Boomers every few months at Burnt Toast. They have a wide of dishes, none of which is spectacular, but all of which deliver as they should. From the Mickie Mouse pancake for the six year old to the salads for the gals to the gluten-free,...

Great breakfast restaurant with gourmet and traditional food. Wonderful place to take out of town guests, or meet a business associates. I like the Grand Marnier French toast!

I have ate here several times and find it just OK. It is nothing special and somewhat overpriced. Busy and noisy I would personally lok for a smaller local place and try them. This is just a high priced Perkins.
