I *LOVE* Toast. Their food is so amazing. I've been going to this restaurant occasionally for almost ten years and I have never once been disappointed. Their goat cheese and honey crostinis are a particular favorite of mine and my family's, and any puree soup they have is bound to be delicious. So highly recommended.

About ten years passed between visits to Toast and I was so happy the place was still there. Super great food and really friendly staff. Will try to make another trip sooner than 2029.

Yum, yum, and did I say yum?? The ingredients are fresh and the combinations are a sweet surprise to the palate. Tons of vegetarian options!! This place is about 30 mins away from me and I will for sure drive it again to enjoy a great meal.

This cute Paninoteca was really good. The atmosphere was comfy and the decor was calming. You go to the counter and order your food then we got a number for our table and waited to be served. It was clean and the workers were friendly. We waited for our food a little longer then I would have liked but it was fresh and delicious! That’s my 2 cents now you decide.

Lots of cilantro and stylish lunch options. It's never bad, but I'm never particularly satisfied with any dish I get there. I never eat anything enthusiastically there. There are veg options and pork, but no hearty meat options if you don't eat pork. I still don't have a favorite or anything I'd miss even a little if they shut down. That's quite unusual for me, even at hole in the wall restaurants or dive bars that serve pub food, so I think that's a very bad sign.

My wife and I go here for lunch any chance we get oh, what a fantastic place. And the owner is very hospitable she remembers what we get every time.

One of the best lunch spots in downtown Durham. Also good for an early light dinner.

Love that their bread is fresh everyday from gugelhopf. Their chicken salad is great, no fruit or other shenanigans in it. I wish they would put meet to edges of the sandwich but thats an easy fix.

Clean, warm atmosphere. Soup was good, but panini wasn't very good. It had prosciutto, mozzarella and roasted tomato, but really needed mustard or vinaigrette.

So many options in this cozy spot! All of the food is delicious- whether you decide on something hot or cold, soup or salad, it will be incredible. The space is perfect for a casual date or meeting with a few friends. Great for a lunch break, too! Stop in during colder times to warm up with one of their delicious ever-changing soup options- they are always to die for.

Excellent food. It's easy for a panini to end up sloppy so I was happy that mine was plated beautifully. The staff handled the lunch crowd very efficiently. The restaurant was very nice, good use of space.

This place was delicious! Despite the space being a little small we were able to find a table easily and our food was served quickly. You could taste the fresh ingredients and tell that nothing was frozen. The prices were fair as well. We will definitely make a point to stop in again next time we're in the area!

Always friendly, lots of choices. Excellent ingredients and well-prepared. Glass of wine and some crostini, or soup and salad for lunch.

Such an amazing indie restaurant in Downtown Durham. The food is amazing, the staff is friendly, and it's near some other fantastic places. Definitely worth the trip

Everything I tried was pretty good. Look forward to trying it again when I can sit down and enjoy the experience.
