I really like Toast! The service is great, the menu is creative and fun. They're carafes of mimosas are totally worth it. I've had the chicken and waffles and corned beef hash--both great . There can be a wait, but if you avoid the most busy times you should be fine! More...

I really enjoyed this place for breakfast. We arrived at the crack of dawn and were the first customers of the day. We loved the ambiance and the place - it was really cool inside. The service was great and the food was fantastic.  I had a custom omelette with Green peppers and mushrooms. My partner had the "farmers only dot omelette." She absolutely loved it. I thought mine was really good as well. Another big plus was the coffee. It was dark and bold with a kick and server hot, not warm like you would find in most diners. Again, a wonderful experience. We hope to be back soon. More...

The bacon fried rice is so on point! Jasmine rice, commingling with avocado, peppers, pickled veggies - all multicultural n spicy, like me! I like a one bowl meal that's hearty but not heavy. Service was super friendly and efficient. I was a party of one at the counter, and treated to sufficient people watching. I barely looked at my phone! More...

We love coming here for breakfast. I'm not a coffee drinking so hot chocolate is always a fun indulgence. They do not disappoint here with whip cream, marshmallows, chocolate chips and teddy grahams and the hot chocolate is smooth and rich. The breakfast burrito was good and the bacon fried rice is a must. The wait is worth it and the service is always above and beyond. More...

Went for brunch. Found parking on the street but there was a small lot too that seemed full. On a Friday 1pm the wait was 10-15 mins for party of 2 but I can imagine the weekend is a mess. Small wait area for about 4 ppl in the back. Looks like they had pet friendly outdoor seating for summer. I love the hipster atmosphere and funky art.

Perfect spot for a weekday brunch! Toast is a small restaurant with less than 15 tables inside and maybe another 7 outside. We decided to stop in on a rainy day so all seating was inside. When we arrived on a Wednesday around 1pm the restaurant was full. We debated about trying another place because there isn't really a waiting area to stand... so it was a little odd to be standing over everyone while they are finishing their meals, but we decided to stick it out. The wait was maybe 10-15 minutes before some of the bar seating opened up.  I decided to try the toast corned beef hash, and my friends got the bacon fried rice and ham and cheese omelette. All three were served hot and delicious.  Staff was not overly friendly but they took care of us and everything came out perfectly after about 30 minutes. More...

Food was an explosion in my mouth!  Chicken-n-Waffle Benny was amazing!  It was a malted waffle with crispy on the outside,  juicy on the inside chicken breast!  Topped with homemade savory sausage gravy and poached eggs.  It was a surprising take on my classic favorite and the flavors worked perfectly.  That's also pure Michigan maple syrup to add on if you'd like but don't worry,  it's on the side so you can decide later.  My side was the bacon fried rice which was really good as well!  My brother will be visiting from out of state and I'm definitely bringing him here!

Cute little brunch place in Ferndale. I went on a sunday at around 11 and it was packed. Me and the guy I went with ended up waiting 20 mins outside before we could even get a table. Thankfully it was nice outside!! The wait was worth it though because our waitress was super cool and was willing to take the time to answer any questions about the menu even though it was packed. I ended up ordering a omelet that I could add my own choice ingredients to so I chose spinach, bacon and cheddar cheese. Soo good! He ordered some cinnamon waffle thing and said it was good. We also ordered a cinnamon roll but I personally would not recommend it because it was kind of dry and they used a syrup instead of a glaze on it which threw me off. Overall I would recommend this place and might be back if I ever go to ferndale for brunch again. If you are a person that doesnt like small spaces I would advise you to maybe go somewhere else because this place is tiny and theres not a lot of room between you and the next person. Just saying!

I have been to Toast many times over the past 3 years. Although every time I would leave with the wrong food or some sort of negative experience I kept coming back with hopes of one day it would turn around. Being an out of towner originally I had high hopes for this establishment and when relatives would come in I would take them to either location as there are no other choices for breakfast.  Finally the objective of this review! Today was an amazing experience! Food was insanely perfect! Our server Pepper (by the way anyone and everyone should request her as she was kind, understanding and took our allergies and special concerns with consideration and respect) is the best server ever!!!! I highly recommend requesting her and you will have an amazing experience! Thank you Pepper! You are one of kind! More...

Great Quality food in a "hole in the wall". I ordered the Parisian Omelette with bacon fried rice and apple walnut toast with triple berry jam . Hubby had the honey pot biscuit special with coffee. Pepper was very attentive and did a great job of explaining the menu. I'm hoping they are expanding or doing expansion construction from the looks of the plastic on the windows.  The bathroom doors are cute. I love the use of sausage for the guys and eggs for gals. But the inside is only single and it was nothing nice. More...

I took a self-care day off of work. I decided to see if I could finally get a spot at a table, being that each time I try on a Saturday, Toast is on full. I enjoyed a sweet decadent french toast with bacon bits and a few peach bellini martinis.The food was scrumptious. The dish satisfied my sweet and savoy spots. I could drink the spirits there all day. There are so many great choices to choose from, including the brunch favorite, mimosas.Service was laid back, courteous and efficient.Every patron in the restaurant seemed to be comfortable and satisfied.Being that the restaurant is on Woodward, there is very little parking in front. There is however a lot behind the building which is pretty tricky as there did not seem to be any order to where folks decided to leave their cars.Mine was a great experience. I'm glad I was able to experience Toast. I'll surely be back to saddle up to the bar for more tasty concoctions. More...

Toast is phenomenal. Eclectic eatery with a lively staff and the breakfasts are off the hook. Love this place. Highly recommended. Awesomeness. So, I find myself navigating to Toast, consistently. Just yesterday I ordered the avocado toast with 2 eggs over medium. Well, the eggs were barely over easy and cold. Yuck. No matter. I simply removed the eggs from the deliciousness and fed my soul. I spoke my mind on the eggs, but was clear it was not a big deal. The blessing was is that I had a meal to eat when others don't. Scotty was amazing. I felt guilty for such a trivially matter, but I just can't doeggs under cooked. My boundaries. Which are important to me. I came back in the very next day and moved forward. I actually felt guilty wasting the eggs as there is someone in the world that would have. I digress. Take time to realize how awesome it is that we afford ourselves such pleasures as Toast and while life and food may not be perfect at timeswe awake every day, we breathe, we love, we are patient, we roll. Lessons learned. Love Toast. Comfort zone all around. D More...

traveled here on a friday morning wanting to try some new food out. The inside was packed to capacity and it's for a reason. The food is phenomenal here! Would definitely recommend. I tried their Petoskey which for a person who doesnt like eggs that much, was killer! Imagine this: bacon crispy, onions carmelized, the GOAT of cheeses...goat cheese, and a sweet ol' surprise...dark cherries! Whaaaat?! All dancing together in Club Egg (going to trademark that name, no one steal it).They paired this with a cinnamon  chalala bread and it was almost like crispy french toast. Ask for a side of syrup, trust me it's worth the extra calories. My cousin grabbed the bacon fried rice which is really a spicy blend of hash brown, pepper jack cheese, bacon, and some other spice I cant remember. It was recommended by the waiter and tbh, was a great call. Oh, and you might also run into your good ol' trusty detroit rappers (shout out Dusty McFly) More...

We went to Toast on a Friday morning and were told to get there before 9:30 as it gets busy. When we arrived there were several tables open and we were seated immediately. The restaurant is small and tight. We sat at a two top and I know the person behind me had difficulty getting out. Having said that, we were seated by the window with natural light and a good view in and out, so no complaint here. We ordered a tangerine mimosa, pineapple juice and coffee. The coffee was great- good flavor. The mimosa was not sweet like I expected but definitely fresh. For breakfast my partner order a blueberry topped French toast (with some kind of cereal batter like captain crunch) while I had the Beet Goes On omelette. Holy moly, it was good! Fresh beets, caramelized onion, goat cheese and arugula with a smear of balsamic. I didn't care for the bacon rice but it came as a side and I wasn't planning on eating it and giving it to my partner so that was fine - she loved it. Also came with toast and I opted for Asiago toast. Very mild flavor and nice and crispy. A delicious breakfast that held my appetite at bay until dinner. I did not check restrooms but the restaurant appeared clean and the staff were friendly. The atmosphere was cozy. More...

My friends and I came here for brunch and it was delectable! The omelette selection was great - I had the Greek omelette and it was just the right amount of heartiness. My friends had various versions of the eggs Benedict and the avocado toast which were all good too! Definitely try as many types of bread as possible while you're here, they are all unique and delicious! We had to wait about 1 hour and parking wasn't easy to find on a Sunday, so beware of that. And there is no electronic system set up, so they take your name but you need to physically walk back to the restaurant every 30-45 min to see where your spot is in line. More...

Toast has been on my list for awhile so I was excited to get to try it this past weekend while in the area as breakfast is my favorite meal. It was already almost full when we got there at 9 am on a Sunday so definitely be prepared for a wait. The place is pretty tiny. We put our name on the list and weren't told how much time it would be, but then two spots opened up at the counter so we snagged those. Our server was super helpful and went over the menu with us when we told her it was our first time there. I ordered the corned beef hash with cheddar jalapeno challah and my boyfriend got the toast Benny with biscuits and a side of bacon fried rice. Our food came out pretty quickly and everything was piping hot. My meal was wonderful! Lots of big hunks of meat, plenty of potatoes, and cheese. The toast was great! I loved the light jalapeno flavor. Didn't get a lot of cheddar flavor but it was toasted perfectly. My boyfriend said the biscuits weren't that great and a bad choice for the Benedict as they were really tall and made it hard to eat. I had a bite of the bacon fried rice and it was so delicious! The rice was perfectly sticky and full of tons of great flavor.We were a little bit neglected during our meal; my boyfriend's coffee never got refilled and we ran out of water. Prices were under $15 and mine was a huge portion. They have a small bar and brunch cocktails. More...

Been to this location a few time and have enjoyed the breakfast each time.  You can tell who-ever the chef is here puts forth a good effort in each dish. The french toast is very good (and rich).  Trashy Hashy is one of my favs.  I wish though the Ferndale location was bigger because eating-in is tight and cramped.  And on a cold day you feel the breeze every time the front door is opened if you are forced to sit near it. But, the tasty breakfast dishes make up for this shortcoming.  Best breakfast place in the Area.  Hands down. More...

This Toast is the more laid back, hippy version of the Toast in Birmingham. They have basically the same menu items as in the Birmingham location, but it's a bit cheaper. It's a little more cramped inside as well, but feels homey. Both usually have long wait times to get a table. Menu items change so there is always something new to try out. I personally really like their Nova Scotia...could be because I really like eggs benedict. I'm a little sad that they no longer have their lemon meringue toast on the menu anymore. I use to get it every time I went so I'm hoping they bring it back. You seriously can't go wrong with ordering anything on their menu. Food is always flavorful and instagram ready. I highly recommend this place for breakfast/brunch. More...

As predicted, 99% hipsters. BUT even that couldn't deny the fact that the food is borderline magical. I've NEVER had a Greek omelette so fresh in my life. The olives are insane and the infusion of Pine Nuts is God sent. The Feta tastes like it was flown in from the mountains of Greece. My finances food matched, if not topped mine. It's all she has talked about since. My recommendation is to put your hair into a man bun, or wear a flannel and an oversized beanie (in my case) and charge up the electric vehicle and go there.
