I have driven by Toast so many times. I thought it was a coffee shop. If you live in Portland and you see a small neighborhood spot with a full bike rack out front you think indie coffee shop. I Googled Toast a few weeks ago and looked at the menu and knew that I had to try this place.
Toast is a neighborhood restaurant that specializes in using local, seasonal, fresh, and natural products. They make freshly baked breads and pastries, and grind meats for their sausages and burgers in house. They say that they buy the best product available in order to provide customers with a top quality experience.
I love trying small local restaurants with the philosophy like Toast’s. Local and fresh is the best! I had the “Dismal Times – Ground hanger steak, white cheddar cheese, chives, greens, served open faced on toast with two fried eggs and a rosti.” The hangar steak was seasoned just right, the eggs were fried to my exact specifications and the rosti was wonderful. You also get a mini scone of the day as a starter with your brunch. Today’s scone was lemon zest and was really good, all two bites of it.
I thoroughly enjoyed my brunch today. So much so that I stopped at the counter to tell the cooks and the rest of the kitchen staff how wonderful my food was. I told them it was excellent and I will be back. When I got home I wrote up a review and posted to UrbanSpoon, Yelp and TripAdvisor.
