  • No matter when you wake up the Friendly Toast will serve you breakfast. Their French toast mixed with the restaurant's bright funky decor is guaranteed to alleviate the worst hangovers.
  • Don't come here if you are in a hurry
  • Most epic bloody Mary I have ever had. And I'm an alcoholic
  • There's usually a bit of a wait at the Toast for brunch, but it's well worth it for the bomb Drunkards French Toast, crazy vintage decoration, and a rousing game of "what did THEY do last night?"
  • The food is good but the service is incredibly slooooooooow!
  • Some favorites from our review: Hansel and Gretel waffles, and the Mexican Mashed Meal. Whether you want salty or sweet, lunch or breakfast, The Friendly Toast is sure to hit the spot.
  • Stick to breakfast, which is offered all day, at this retro-outfitted spot. There are a variety of egg dishes -- we recommend Ole Miss -- or you can make your own. But watch out for the weekend wait.
  • Try the ole miss
  • The coconut pancake was ridiculously amazing. Only need one. It's as big as the plate.
  • Full of awesome and made of win. Try the mojito frappe. The King Cakes are a delicious challenge (pancakes, peanut butter, whipped cream, bacon) to finish an entire serving of.
  • Biscuits and Gravy.
  • French toast (raisin bread), omelette, apple cider! Yum!
  • Wow! Ole Miss is a tangy breakfast dish but you can get it for any mealeven includes sweet potatoes!
  • I wish there was a place like this near Philly.
  • Mojito milkshake!
  • Pumpkin pancakes with raisinettes and homemade whipped cream! Mmmmm!
  • Friendly bar tender and excellent drinks
  • This quirky reader fave has yummy French toast and the best sweet potato fries we've had. Cheesy fries with strawberry habanero sauce are great too, especially paired with a pop-rock cocktail.
  • Cool vibe, friendly and quirky staff. Large menu.
