I used to live in Ferndale around the time (late 90s or early 2000s) when Fabulous Ferndale started to get the up and coming restaurants that were priced out of expensively gentrified Royal Oak. Toast back then was a cool place on Woodward to get a bite, breakfast any time of day, lots of delicious eats in a fairly tiny... More

Had good breakfast there. The food was good, however it's not worth waiting for if the restaurant is full. The restaurant itself is eclectic, but dirty. The place needs a good cleaning. Would go back.

Went on a Monday morning around 10 and you could get a table but it was still busy. Had one of their specials which was a wild mushroom omelette, it was fabulous! As a different side, I had the bacon fried rice, delicious and the cranberry bread toast, all wonderful! We were a party of 4 and everyone was very... More

You can never go wrong by eating at Toast. The food is fresh and is made in unique ways. The menu offers eclectic choices for breakfast and lunch. I love to see new items and specials, just to see what they come up with. Be warned it is a small restaurant so there can be a wait. Try off hours... More

We came from Canada to eat here and we were very disappointed. First, they told us the wait would be 45 minutes and we ended up waiting over an hour and a half to get a table and that was only after my friend went and complained. When we finally were seated they shoved 6 of us into a small... More

Second time at this primarily breakfast place. Does not impress me as being too clean. Servers also did not look very presentable. Too loud..could not carry on a conversation. Somewhat overpriced for eggs, french toast, pancakes. Have a lot of old toasters on the walls, cite, toast.

They food is fresh and they have there own twist on ever meal amd the coffee. The only thing I don't like is if you go by yourself they will 9 times out of 10 try to make you sit at the bar. It's hard to enjoy good food sitting on a hard bar stool. Either then that get there... More

I came here for breakfast with my boyfriend the day after my 21st birthday! We came around 10am and there was a 10-15 minute wait for a table. The inside of the restaurant was brightly colored and decorated with vintage toasters. They offer free coffee in the waiting area. He ordered the special of the day, Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes with...
