Recently I went to the Toast City Diner in Red Bank, NJ. They have a few locations along the Jersey shore, and the menu looked good. Before recently, I hadn’t heard of Toast, but I believe it’s only a couple of years old.
I got there around 11 am and it wasn’t too crowded. I’ve heard on weekends it’s hard to even get a table.
Toast is located in the downtown of Red Bank. It’s a cute, metallic, shiny building. It stood out in a good way.
The inside is metallic interior, with a full-length bar, plenty of booths and tables. One of my favorite diner features is built in table jukeboxes which toast had.
The coffee was brewed fresh and hot each time. There was nothing unique or unusual, but it was still good.
Our waitress was one of the best I’ve had in awhile. She was extremely friendly, brought plenty of refills, and our food came out quickly. Granted we were in Toast at a quiet time, but everything came out fast, and it was a great experience.
Toast isn’t open all day and only serves breakfast and lunch. They have several different unique breakfast options such as carrot cake pancakes and vegetarian wraps.
I was intrigued by the carrot cake pancakes as well as the grilled cinnamon rolls, so I ordered both.
The grilled cinnamon buns were delicious. It came with three with melted frosting.
The carrot cake pancakes were some of the best pancakes I’ve had. Often times when you order a flavored pancake like carrot cake or red velvet, it rates artificial or it doesn’t taste any different than a regular pancake. This was not the case with toast. The carrot cake pancakes had coconut and actually shredded carrot in them. They were some of the best pancakes I’ve had in a restaurant.
In all, my food was in the top percentage of diners I’ve been too.
For my coffee, pancakes and cinnamon cubs, the cost was $20. For the amount of food as well as the quality, it was worth it.
Overall Summary/Would I Come Back?
I enjoyed Toast, and it was one of the better diners I’ve been too. I highly recommend it.
