First time in Asbury Park, NJ. First of all, you need to visit this town/this area. Beautiful!!! New Jersey shore is my new favorite!! Toast is adorable and the food is great. Just finished Nutella French Toast. Heading to the Asbury Park Boardwalk to walk some of the calories off!:) 5 stars!

We have been here numerous times this past summer. We all tried something different on each visit. Some of those visits where day after day. Never disappointed, and we're sometimes not easy to make happy, especially a tad bit hungover. Then cold brew ice coffee is not to be missed. Helped me many morning's.

Was recommended as a nice place for Brunch so I gave it a try. Upon entering, it was not "inviting" as the dining area was essentially "dark and dingy" and being a new place on Cookman, I expected more. My companion had eggs which were OK. I had Buttermilk Pancakes and a Short stack had 2 large cakes but even... More

We enjoyed an absolutely delicious breakfast at Toast the Saturday morning of Labor Day weekend. Pancakes appear to be their specialty, and for good reason. The cold brew coffee also was fantastic, as was the service. If you don't like waiting in line, try to get there on the earlier side. Would definitely return!

Place looks cute and menu seems appealing. Our server was training someone, which is fine but she was openly rude to us and the trainee...obviously bothered by her presence. I ask if I could sub the potatoes for fruit salad, she said yes. When they brought me a house salad, I advised I asked for a fruit salad (we were... More

Toast is really the "toast of the town" breakfast-wise in Asbury Park. It is very busy at breakfast and the offerings are many! If you love big, decadent breakfasts, you will probably want to try it. The restaurant itself is casual, with bare wood tables. It's a little dark, but not overly so. In my opinion, the food is good,... More
