“Food Nothing Special / We had Bad Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

The waitress slammed the plates on the table. We asked for more coffee and she said " I'm busy now, can't you see that?" Maybe our food didn't taste so good after that. Still waiting for more coffee.

“huge pancakes, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I was there at lunchtime and stuck with the lunch menu, but wish I had gone for breakfast instead. The lunch I had was good, but I really wanted to try those huge pancakes. Once I looked around, it seemed that everyone else there was having one or the other type of pancakes. I will definltely eat here again soon.

“Best Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The best place around for great breakfast! Good sized portions. Be prepared to wait. I love gyros and eggs and this is one of the only places that will serve that. They also have ice cream and exotic coffes and such.

“Top-Notch Service and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Burnt Toast continually serves top notch breakfast food with outstanding service. The atmosphere is professional and the wait staff are always very friendly and attentive. Food is served promptly and is good quality. We've been here a number of times, both on business and with family, and gotten everything from Eggs Benedict, to pancakes, to omelets, and french toast (amazing!) and we've never been disappointed. You might wait a little on the weekends, but it's worth it. Burnt Toast is, by far, our favorite breakfast/ brunch restaurant.
