Toast Bakery Cafe: Cupcakes for Breakfast—Or Lunch or Dinner

June 23, 2015 by  
Filed under Restaurants

When Toast's website claims it can please even the pickiest of eaters, it's not exaggerating. Guests from The Rachael Ray Show, The Hills, and The Today Show​ have all been filmed sharing a meal there. Perhaps that's because chefs create its widely renowned breakfast dishes morning, noon, and night.

Anything goes for breakfast or brunch at Toast—even cupcakes. Try the red velvet cupcake, a local favorite, or the bakery's own spin on the classic: blue velvet. Its banana pudding also caters to customers with a helping of vanilla wafers, Oreos, or peanut butter cups on top. For more conventional breakfast grub, order classic buttermilk pancakes, stuffed French toast, or eggs and omelets. Vegetarians especially love the breakfast menu, since nearly everything fits their dietary restrictions—you can even opt for veggie sausage.

And the kitchen keeps churning out savory and sweet fare even after the breakfast rush. At lunch, you can start with calamari rings and end with a grilled falafel burger or turkey avocado wrap. Whereas when dinner rolls around, chefs shift gears to more upscale dishes ranging from grilled salmon to thin-crust margherita pizzas. Make sure you order the sweet potato fries with dinner—customers rave about them.

Filed under Restaurants

This cozy, casual spot is known for offering satisfying sushi and rolls at a low cost. With many dishes priced at $3.50, you can indulge without going over budget.

Regulars recommend the rolls, particularly the spicy tuna, spicy yellowtail, the dynamite mac roll, and the scallop roll. One bonus of Sushi Koo is that each table has a container of wasabi, spicy mayonnaise, and ginger, so you can add as much of these garnishes as you want. Frequent guests say the spicy mayo, which includes ginger, ponzu sauce, and soy sauce, is one of the top reasons for eating here.

The dining room is small, so it's not good for large groups, but the service is quick, so it's a great spot for a quick lunch. Sushi Koo is cash only, conveniently, there is an ATM is inside the restaurant.
