Brunch Chicago

Toast (Webster Ave.)

October 13, 2011

Toast shines because of it’s simplicity. They offer expertly cooked breakfast staples featuring fresh, delicious ingredients. I have tried the Smoked Salmon Omelette, Crabby Benedict, and the almighty Breakfast Burrito. I recommend any of these dishes, all are delicious, but to me the Burrito is easily the star.

I have tried making breakfast burritos a few times, and have ordered them in a few restaurants, but no egg-based burrito has come CLOSE to how good the Breakfast Burrito is at Toast. It’s a very simple dish, but everything inside (and outside) that delicious green tortilla is cooked to perfection.  I recommend getting it with Avocado, it’s awesome.

Also the Grilled Chicken Sausage with Apple and Gouda is really, really, good and be ready for the huge portion they offer as a side. Actually Toast has pretty large portion sizes in general — you would probably be fine splitting an entree with someone (but good luck deciding on one dish to order).

The wait for a table can be a little long on the weekend (it’s a very small restaurant). If you can find time to get there on a weekday I highly recommend doing that — the few times I have been there on a weekday there was zero wait for a table.

The service at Toast is great — the servers are friendly, attentive, and good at getting people in and out without making you feel rushed.

Also I have no idea what magic cooking component they put in their house potatoes, and frankly I don’t want to know, but they are really damn good.




I just don't want to look back and think "I could've eaten that."
