This is a great place for dinner. The ambiance is very comfortable and quiet. My son and his colleague were in from Boston on a business trip and I suggested we go to TOAST because I had been there before with my sisters for brunch. The food was good and the service excellent. My son and his colleague enjoyed it.
The service was fast and friendly but the food continues to disappoint and the booth we sat in was quite dirty. Every time I have been there (whether winter or summer) it has been very cold inside the restaurant. The eggs were swimming in oil, the toast was bland and the pancakes had NO flavor. Another time, I ordered their french toast with some sort of Bourbon/pecan topping and it was awful, bitter, as if they just poured Bourbon on my french toast. The food is better tasting at the Toast in Ferndale for some reason. I really WANT to like this place but the food was not good and the atmosphere ruined by the dirty table and cold temperature.
Another thing that seemed a little discriminatory is that they don't allow children or babies in one half of their restaurant. If they are going to focus on breakfast foods and be located inside a downtown area with lots of young families, they might want to reconsider this decision. I have to say, I'm pretty open minded, but that seemed a little offensive.
I am a resident of Birmingham and would love to dine here often but I just can't go back and pay them for a sub-par experience.
