We stopped here for lunch after a visit to the aquarium. The staff was friendly, and the food was very good. It is a quaint little place - not much seating - but well worth it.

We ate breakfast here. I had the crab eggs benedict which was great. My daughter had the pancakes which were also good. My wife and oldest daughter had the potato plate. My daughter loved it and wanted to return to order it again, but it wasn't what my wife thought it would be and she was sorely disappointed. Just be... More

We have been going to Toasties for years because it is always good and reasonably priced. I love this place because of their selection of different eggs benedict dishes. I have tried them all (try crab benedict). Also their pepper sauce (on the table) it is really good and gives some zing to potatoes or eggs. It gets crowded but... More

Very nice cafe, over-priced, $40 for breakfast. This area has a dearth of authentic, local, well-priced restaurants. Not sure why.

Our hotel recommended this breakfast cafe. We are glad that they did. It was easy to find and had a cozy atmosphere with good food.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch here today. Not fancy but good service for breakfast and lunch items - only open until 3:00pm. We loved a turkey Reuben and a grilled eggplant sandwich.

This is a quaint home cooking type restaurant. The menu has lots of variety - specialty is breakfast. They have multiple types of eggs Benedict. The crab Benedict was tremendous. They have choices of coffee. The staff are very peasant and service was excellent t.

Toasties provided ample breakfast and lunch for us for 2 days while in Pacific Grove. Opened at 6 am (town is a little sleepy for early risers) and menu selection, food choices and preparation and finally the meals were excellent.

We visited Toasties for breakfast on our last day on the peninsula before heading home. Toasties was a place we visited often when we lived on the peninsula almost 20 years ago and remember many days the line going out the door with those waiting for a table. We were there very early on a Sunday morning so there was... More
