    The rapini sandwich with sweet sausage and asiago fresca was sublime. Pleasant atmosphere and great outdoor seating with a nice view of downtown durham.

    Toast definitely fills the need for a good sandwich shop in the Triangle Area! Extremely creative, yet familiar food that is sure to satisfy!

    Everything is great. My go-to favorites: the proscuitto and mozzarella panini and the roasted beet bruschetta (warning: comes with garlic breath) - always get the simple side green salad! Fantastic!

    Shrimp and sun choke salad with arugula sandwich. A very popular lunch spot in Durham. Best to make it an early lunch. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    It's always crowded...from a food/beverage/service background myself...they could move people through the line faster. It's not that big of a menu and you stand in line forever to decide what you want

    The spicy tuna panini with lemon, fennel and olivada is what dreams are made of. So is the lemon, artichoke, new potato purée.

    Love the rapini and grilled chicken paninis and the lovely Italian candies. Beware - not everything is equally delicious. :x

    Always get the soup de jour, and the honey goat cheese crostini will make you dream about it later.
