All of their food is amazing. Great servers and atmosphere. However, avoid this place like the plague on weekends because I always end up with an hour long wait. Never encountered the manager though and we always go to Lincoln Park. Very reasonably priced.

Love the food, Love the wait staff, dislike the manager! I had to stop going to Toast, because the manager is so rude.

With a name like "Toast" and a twirling sign of a perfectly toasted slice of bread, I thought I'd found the perfect after-a-crazy-night brunch spot. I was wrong. I had the blueberry buckwheat pancakes with a side of scrambled eggs and my girl had the "Crabby Benedict" (traditional EB plus crab meat). The blueberries in my pancake were sour and past due while the cake itself was dry and bland. My scrambled eggs were rubbery and overcooked. As for my girl's "Crabby Benedict", the crab meat tasted old. The potatoes, however, were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Overall, "Toast" is mediocre at best and more accurately, a bit sub par.

I really do not understand why people seem to have issues with the manager - every time I go there (which is rather frequently as I LOVE this restaurant), she is always friendly, polite, and chatting with customers. Once she comped a friend's entire order b/c the hollandaise wasn't setting correctly and it took them a whole 5 minutes to remake it. I've never had a bad experience at this restaurant, one of the best places for brunch in Chicago.

crazy manager woman. Very rude. Walked out. Not at all worth the attitude. We chose this place to celebrate a birthday and when we walked in we were treated so poorly that we walked out and went elsewhere.

There are two Toasts in Chicago. Make sure you go to the one in bucktown, rather than the one in lincoln park. The manager at the one in Lincoln Park, is by far the rudest person Ive ever met. Its really a shame, because I love this breakfast joint. Its too bad her snobby demeaner makes the food taste bad.
