A regular here for years but have seen a deterioration over the past year. Food has not been as good and service has been spotty

Cute little cafe, very conducive to small group meal.... a favorite of locals. The service is good. The prices are average for this area. For me, the food is so-so. I'm not impressed with taste or presentation. If you are happy with "average", this is the place.

After traveling to the Monterey Peninsula for over 20 years, Toasties continues to be my favorite place for breakfast/brunch. I especially like that breakfast is served well into the afternoon! The quaint, charming ambience add to the enjoyment of their well-prepared food. I usually opt for one of the omelettes, however everything I've ordered is delicious. There is also a... More

Best French toast I have ever consumed. Wish I had their recipe. My husband ordered eggs and bacon and before I knew it he ate half of my order.! Nice quiet restaurant, very clean. They had an extensive breakfast menu. Good coffee too!

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to the aquarium. The staff was friendly, and the food was very good. It is a quaint little place - not much seating - but well worth it.

We ate breakfast here. I had the crab eggs benedict which was great. My daughter had the pancakes which were also good. My wife and oldest daughter had the potato plate. My daughter loved it and wanted to return to order it again, but it wasn't what my wife thought it would be and she was sorely disappointed. Just be... More

We have been going to Toasties for years because it is always good and reasonably priced. I love this place because of their selection of different eggs benedict dishes. I have tried them all (try crab benedict). Also their pepper sauce (on the table) it is really good and gives some zing to potatoes or eggs. It gets crowded but... More

Very nice cafe, over-priced, $40 for breakfast. This area has a dearth of authentic, local, well-priced restaurants. Not sure why.
