A Toast to Toast Eatery

Wandering In a new city with the morning wind blowing and my hair still dripping wet from the shower we found Toast Eatery a great little breakfast spot, and a sanctuary from the cool breeze.

We were greeted with a friendly, 'Morning guys, sit wherever you like.' We sat and were promptly brought over two glasses of water with ice. Looking at the menu I saw it was pretty good, and so I hadn't decided what I wanted when the waitress first came over to us but I ordered a coffee.

This was the size of the regular latte - it's much bigger than the salt and pepper shakers, and bigger than what you'd get in Australia that's for sure

The coffee was big and hot but really nice with a good mild flavour and no trace of bitterness. There was cool artwork over the counter and on the walls.

The place was spacious and not too loud although it might become more so when crowded. I didn't really find it but my partner in crime on this occasion said he felt like it was a typical 'American diner'.

My dining partner ordered eggs florentine - 2 poached eggs, sauteed spinach, garlic, tomato and avocado on English Muffins topped with Hollandaise sauce and served with a hash brown.

Eggs Florentine with Hash Brown

I went with two poached eggs, whole wheat toast and I swapped the hash brown for some fresh fruit. The fruit was really delicious - raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and banana. The eggs were well poached and the toast was tasty and had oaty bits on the crusts.

Overall, I think Toast Eatery was a good find for us. The food was filling and reasonably priced, and the service was friendly. There isn't any Wi-Fi which is fast becoming what you expect in San Francisco so this is a bit of a negative - but in the end I'd rather have good food and service than compromise the quality for free Wi-Fi.

Kathleen, your meal looks quite nice. Not really what I would call American food. Looks pretty healthy :)
