“Nothing special”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

This place is way over hyped. On weekends you cannot set a foot inside without a very lengthy wait. But once you do get in and order, you realize there's nothing special or great about the atmosphere and the food. The menu consists of the usual breakfast fare: eggs in different style, pancakes, french toast ect. Average food that you can get in many other places. The noise level inside, however, are above average, and it will be impossible for you to have a conversation or to actually enjoy your meal. I'd recommendyou avoid this place during weekends, and go only in week days -providing you keep your expectations rather low and not expecting anything out of the ordinary.

“Solid breakfast/Lunch choice”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Toast consistently delivers good food at reasonable prices. As expected, it gets very busy on the weekends, so time your visits or go during the week

Whether you get eggs Benedict, or omelettes, or salads, everything is very good and the portions are generous. French toast is also a winner with lots of fun choices

“Toast of the town!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

One of the best Brunch spots in the area. When you see a line outside of a restaurant at any given weekend you know one of two things: either it good but tiny or it is fantastic. i'll tell you what, it is not small.
We found this gem several years ago & try to make sure we get there as often as possible.
Without a doubt the best French Toast ever! They do it with a vanilla and banana combo that is wonderful. The pancakes are fresh and tasty as are most everything else on the menu.
It is very homey with 2 floors and a very rustic look. A word of warning: there is always a line outside, so try not to go at peak times. No matter the line it is well worth the wait.
I highly recommend Toast even if you are just passing through.

Toast! Very charming place with wonderful breakfast items! Wait staff and manager were very friendly. Food was made quickly and was delish! Looking forward to trying Toast in Asbury Park!
