    This was my first time at Toast and it was an unexpected pleasant surprise! The ambiance is charming and warm and the brunch was excellent! I recommend the breakfast burrito! Coming back for sure!

    An NYC quality breakfast at Midwestern prices (and portions). $9 for two eggs, 3 sausage patties, toast, and a million potatoes.

    Absolutely love the sweet waffles and I couldn't believe they were offered in a gluten-free version! I still dream about the mango sauce topping.

    The turkey Brie is incredible. The sweet-salty combo of apple and melted Brie left me craving more even though I was stuffed!

    Best breakfast! Try the Tuscan Omlette if you are a pesto fan. I also had tried the Nutella panini and man was that GOOD!

    I liked "The Cure" well enough, but when they try to sell you fries and the waitress says "french fries", you shouldn't receive quartered potatoes. Charge extra for fry toppings without warning too!

    Eggs Benedict with the veggie sausage is delectable! Don't miss the mimosas either 🙈

    Amazing French toast…as this restaurant's name suggests. Order the Grand Marnier or the granola mountain toasts.

    Just a tip for the staff. When you upscale someone on the fries without their knowledge that it will be a extra cost. TELL THEM!

    Wine Down Wednesday has a list if $5 glasses. They usually over-cook burgers here, so stress the rare part.

    The worst of Birmingham like to crowd you as you wait, squished for a table. Get your table, wait some more. 2 hour lunch turnaround. Egos. High prices. Long waits.
