We go to Burnt toast on a regular basis, every couple months. The food is always fresh. We usually order biscuits and gravy, belgium waffle, and sometimes sausage eggs and pancakes. This past time though i saw the specials board. It had sweet potato and chorizo (mexican sausage) hash. I now have a even tougher choice on what to eat.

Food is just okay. Not really worth the wait. Also it's VERY loud in there when your trying to talk or hear someone. Tables are packed close as well. Higher prices for breakfast.

The food. Here was very good, huge portions so ask for a take home box. The eggs and pancakes are very good and they have a lot of specialty pancake/waffle breakfast options. They are always busy but worth the wait if you have too.

Overall we enjoy having breakfast at Burnt toast. The food has always been good and comes out fresh and warm. We have tried a variety of items on the menu and haven't been disappointed with anything. My only reason for not being 5 star is the wait and the waiting area. While I don't mind waiting for a table, as... More

Don't let the lines fool you. We came on a Saturday morning around 11am with a group of 5 and we were sitting down in 20 minutes. The service and food are top notch. Lots of yummy food on their menu.
