“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Eclectic breakfast/brunch restaurant. I had the Eggs Benedict, nicely prepared. My husband had the basic breakfast. There is so much to look at: antique signs, props, and toys. Fun and vibrant atmosphere. Excellent service.

“Fun place for lunch”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Stopped by for lunch on Sunday, a bit of a wait, but worth it. A fun place, filled with nostalgic artifacts of all kinds and vintage tables, etc. Our lunch food was very good, and very plentiful. The menu is long and has a wide variety of style options, for everyone's tastes. Worth the wait.

“Good Food”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had a good breakfast at Friendly Toast thanks to reading reviews here at Trip Advisor. We loved the decor and our food was good and had a great waiter. Arrived about 8:30 am and didn't wait for a table on a Saturday morning during the Film Festival.

“quirky decor and excellent breakfast”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Lots of southwestern options, breakfast standards, and signature, thick cut toast. Portion sizes are enormous. If bringing small children, the toast that comes with most breakfasts will be plenty for them. You can also buy a loaf to take home.

“Fun decor, family friendly, food was okay”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

I tried the Drunkards French toast (French toast with a grand marnier and raspberry sauce) and found the sauce to be a little sharp. Maybe it was just a bad choice but an expensive mistake and I couldn't finish my breakfast. My husband had the regular French toast and was happier with this choice.
The place was very busy for a Friday morning, unusually so, according to the hostess. Our waiter got busy with a large table and we had to sit and wait for our order, bill, etc. all in all, it was fine, but we might try another place for breakfast if we are ever in town again.
