    Chicken and Waffles is really good. The pancakes were a lot bigger than I expected, they basically fill up the entire plate (but they're still good... kinda sweet for breakfast)

    Cheddar cayenne bread is heavenly. Mexican mash is a nice kick in the morning 👌

    Meg's American Burrito is huge and well worth it - eggs, homefries, bacon and cheese - outstanding. Also, they will text you when your table is ready - great system

    Rob O'Donoghue · July 26, 2015

    Great tasting, creative and affordable breakfast items. Try the Huevos Rancheros, they practically put a whole avacado on it.

    William Hoffman · July 18, 2015

    Frappes, veggie scramble, great breads

    Kelly B · July 12, 2015

    Don't be afraid to venture into the more creative menu items! The New Orleans fries are crazy spicy and just as delicious.

    Wear your shin guards; the Bloody Mary has hella kick.

    Sandra Rubinchik · July 6, 2015

    Unique selection of food and cocktails.

  • Enrico S.

    Good food, but extremely overrated. You can wait up to one hour for a weekend brunch...

    Enrico S · February 7, 2015
  • Pascal H.

    After waiting for 30 minutes to get a table, the waiter decided to give our table to a group of girls instead and put us back to the end of the list! Awful service.

    Pascal Hartig · January 22, 2015
  • JB S.

    I love the food at the toast, but the service at the Cambridge location tends toward the lackadaisical. The servers in Portsmouth are just as pierced and tattooed and hip, But are friendly and quick.

    JB Segal · January 9, 2015
  • Amanda

    This place looks like Cracker Barrel ate green eggs and ham and threw up. (That's a compliment.) Delicious pumpkin pancakes!

    Amanda · January 6, 2015
  • Leah S.

    Their bread is amazing; fresh and homemade. Always a special bread too!

    Leah Schatz · January 4, 2015
  • Maggie D.

    The pancakes here are huge and delicious.

    Maggie Delano · January 1, 2015
  • Vambah S.

    Caribbean waffles are incredible. Caramelized pecans encrusted into a homemade waffle. Also, try the cayenne cheese bread.

    Vambah Sillah · December 20, 2014
  • Billy

    Wait might seem intimidating, but totally worth it.

    Billy · December 1, 2014
  • Minnie K.

    Very busy during brunch. You will probably have some amount of wait time. Great for a quick and casual bite!

    Minnie Kim · November 23, 2014

    HUGE pancakes, delicious and unique flavor combinations

    Euni K · November 16, 2014
  • Mandy K.

    Nice staff and great food at a decent price. Definitely trendy with weird decorations. Get the Orleans fries, they're amazing (especially cold the next day... trust me).

    Mandy Kidney · November 6, 2014
  • Patricia

    The best (all day!) brunch spot in the city. The Guy Scramble is my go-to, the Ole Miss is my current favorite, and the pancakes are always a good choice.

    Patricia · October 15, 2014
  • Amy D.

    Booze milkshakes and the cayenne cheddar toast! Be careful of the line on weekends- usually at least an hour long

    Amy Davidson · September 4, 2014
  • Ivan B.

    The burger is average

    Ivan Burazin · August 23, 2014

    breakfast served all day!

    Darrick Chan · August 22, 2014
  • Trevor A.

    Breakfast all day. Specials on toast and other items. Great shakes and soda pop. Outdoor and bar seating. Gets busy at lunch, especially during the week

    Trevor Arneberg · August 19, 2014
  • Adam D.

    Margarita & a breakfast burrito is the best way to start your Saturday or Sunday

    Adam D · August 17, 2014

    Sklarmageddon an omelette that is built to kill! Sounds perfect :)

    Xavier · August 17, 2014
  • Jeremy K.

    Decor is a bit creepy but the good is good. A bit of a greasy spoon but they do serve breakfast all day which is nice.

    Jeremy Krantz · August 13, 2014
  • Barbara H.

    I like the mint hot chocolate and all of the food is made well.

    Barbara Hough · August 12, 2014
  • Jason B.

    The eggs were perfect, the home fries just spicy enough and the anadama toast was excellent.

    Jason Bednar · August 3, 2014
  • Danielle R.

    The earlier the better on weekends to minimize the wait!

    Danielle Raad · August 2, 2014
  • Kate L.

    Google Maps gets the location completely wrong. It's located in the complex near Tommy Doyle's, not the one with the movie theater
