Every time I go to Toast, I feel like I’m missing something. It has countless rave reviews and is practically an institution in Ferndale. Though try as I might, every time I go I leave thinking “that could have had more flavor” or, “it sounded better than it tasted.” It could be that I’m not ordering the right things, but a few misses: My vegetarian omelet lacked flavor but was swimming in watery mushroom juice, my veggie sandwich was a smear of goat cheese and a roasted veggie slapped on a piece of bread, and my friend’s Toast burger (while still delicious) was overcooked. I might keep trying, but Toast happens to be so close to the pitch perfect Mae’s and favorite brunch spot One Eyed Betty’s that I haven’t wanted to give it another go (not to mention that they’re very busy and small). They’re not hurting for business so I won’t feel too bad. However, since most restaurants in the area are closed on Mondays, this is the day I’ll probably be back.
Giving you a taste of what I taste. From gourmet to everyday. No pretentious bull - just good food.
