“Best Breakfast in Chicago! You might feel guilty it's so good and so inexpensive.”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Seriously, this place is worth going to some effort. We were lucky enough to only be a few block's walk, and we put our name in (they only seat complete parties) and headed outside for a nice chat. We had to wait about 35 minutes-which seems long sitting here reading it, but it was a relaxed Sunday morning and we literally had nothing better to do than work up an appetite and TRY to decide what to order. I was with my favorite friends, and when we were all indecisive, we decided to share a bunch of dishes. The BELT was probably the best. The apple brie crepe should be ordered as a kind of dessert for the table to share. It's better than Paris. The omlette with spinich and goat cheese is generous and rich. The breakfast burrito is perfect. The hostess was efficient and helpful-she kept letting us know that she knew we were waiting-and she was putting us in the front window table, but that she had to wait for the other people to leave the table and obviously she couldn't shoo them out the door despite the fact they had long ago finished their meal.
It was divine food. The guy next to us had a massive steak under his eggs benedict-and it was only like $12. Crazy good place. Cute ambience. Could be romantic or just friendly. We recommended it so strenuously our friends took a cab from michigan avenue hotel the next morning just to see what we all raved about. they were not disappointed!
Remember to tip well, they are incredible at service.

“Yummy Breakfast”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Went to Toast for breakfast on this trip. They had many Gluten-Free options for me (yea!) My daughter loved the crapes and husband enjoyed the stuffed french toast. We enjoyed looking at all the vintage toasters that decorated the joint.

“Ecclectic Cafe”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Went here with a friend of mine and it was so popular we had to come back in 20 minute to get a table but I didn't mind this. The first thing that greeted me on the way to our table was a Audrey Hepburn breakfast at tiffany's movie poster. the food was amazing although they gave way to big a portion. this is a must go to if you are in Lincoln Park area.

“Amazing breakfast”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was our second visit to Toast and it was just as delicious as the first. The apple, pear and brie crepes are so, so good! Get there early on the weekends!

“Great place for breakfast.”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

On a recent trip in Chicago I visited Toast on 3 occasions for breakfast. The food was excellent and the service super too. Must try the eggs Benedict, the potatoes are divine.
