The staff is always friendly, service is very good, and the food is good too. We go here often as a family too. Our family enjoys the French Toast often! They have a nice variety to choose from both lunch and breakfast items. They also have some gluten free options too. They're two locations one in Elgin & one in... More

This is a great place for breakfast. Good variety of well prepared food. There can be a substantial wait. The staff is friendly and efficient.

I don't get the chance to have breakfast outside of the home very often but when I do, I take the ride to Burnt Toast. It can get very busy on the weekends so there is a line (usually a good sign, right?) but worth the wait!

We've been going the other location for years and the staff are always friendly, food is great and portions outstanding! Bulka waited on us and her infectious smile and impeccable service made it a great dining event with family who'd never been. We rave about Burnt Toast and they never let us down. Our emails who visited now understand why... More

Food and service were spot on. I had the eggs Benedict and the rest of my family all had the meat lovers skillet.

Quite a nice menu with lots of choices and specialties. Big portions. Go hungry! Love the French Toast. Omelets are wonderful. Everything is very fresh and yummy. Been there a few times and never been disappointed.

Clean, good variety on the menu for breakfast, courteous service, generous portions, what more can you ask for on a busy breakfast day? Check out their french toast and you will see why they sell it by the piece. :) I'd be sure to return if ever I am in the area again.

I've been to this restaurant on three different occasions and was not pleased with any of the visits. First of all, they refuse to seat you until your entire party has arrived, even though there are plenty of tables available in the restaurant. I do not understand this rule as I would eat whether or not the other individual arrived,... More
