Super cute eatery. Food and service is amazing. Very friendly staff. Since I was visiting Durham from LA I wasn’t a fan of their hours of operation. 11am - 2:45pm but a number of non-chain restaurants are open on a similar timeframe. Despite this mild inconvenience, I would totally come back here.

I only had a simple salad, but service was great and the food was yummy.

I was staying down the street so it was a very easy half mile walk. I saw really good reviews online and I wanted brunch. Lol. I like trying and experiencing new things(food related only lol) and decided on Toast because of what I saw on the menu. Had my order taken outside but I felt like eating indoors. Had a glass of white and ordered the 3 crostinis and a cup of soup. 1. Goat cheese with local honey and pepper. 2. Chicken liver with bacon and onion. 3. Garlicy mushrooms with thyme and gorganzola. The soup thay I chose was a arborio rice, summer squash & asiago. I also ordered the shrimp and sunchoke salad for later. Service was decent and the food arrived within about 15 mins or so, so not that bad of a wait at all...The soup was divine! Very creamy and lots of flavor. Out of the three crostini the goat cheese was my absolute favorite. They were all delicious, that one was just my favorite. When it comes to the shrimp salad: Oh.My.Gosh. 🤤🤤🤤. Tons of pieces of shrimp, chopped sunchokes(yum), celery, etc. with their housemade aioli that seems to have the exact amount of lemon in it. I ordered it as an after thought, but I am not regretting my decision at all. 😍😍 I am definitely going to go back the next time I visit Durham. I found my new favorite brunch spot. Thank you Toast.❤

I enjoyed every bite. My only regret, I was only able to eat about half. So, I boxed up the rest and looked forward to eating the rest later. Ten minutes later I became very sad as I realized I'd left it on the table

One of my favorites in Durham. Great sandwiches and soup - have never had a meal I didn't love. Owner works the register and is the kindest person who makes you feel welcome. Can get crowded but nice seating outside too. Highly recommend.

Toast is my favorite restaurant in Durham! Their food is incredibly creative, fresh, and more affordable than its neighboring competition. I recommend their soups and crostinis!
