Toast Coffeehouse sits nestled in the heart of the Village of Patchogue at 46 East Main Street, and is as casual, comfortable and eclectic as its name suggests. First established in the Village of Port Jefferson in 2002, Toast opened its second location in Patchogue this past January and has quickly become the ‘go-to’ place for a light or hearty breakfast, brunch or lunch.
The friendly, cordial wait staff caters to customers to ensure total satisfaction as Manager James Skidmore keeps a keen eye on operations and makes guests feel welcome during their visit.
First and foremost, it cannot be overstated that the food is fresh, and the restaurant is clean.
Attention to detail is paid right down to the fresh-cut lemon wedges that accompany any of the crispy fresh homemade Chicken in the Garden or Lemon Chicken salads. Lunch options are varied from Toast’s Lite Bite soup and salad combos, to a new Spicy Shrimp and Mango salad, to a wide array of Wraps, to Café Burgers to Toast Specialties, including the not-to-be missed Rocky Mountain Steak – all made to order at guests’ requests.
But it is Toast’s breakfast menu that may well have put this popular restaurant on the map. Of the six French toast varieties on the menu, the Graham Cracker French Toast dish is a breakfast of choice. This French toast recipe includes peanut butter and sliced banana enveloped in bread encrusted with mashed graham crackers which adds just the right amount of crunch, then topped with drizzled with caramel sauce.
For the Pancake lover, the menu boasts ten choices that make this breakfast decision difficult. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is highly recommended. You can choose between a regular order, or the short stack consisting of two huge pancakes that cover the entire plate. Any of Toast’s pancake dishes is worth paying two dollars additional for 100% real maple syrup.
It should be noted that all dishes are very moderately priced and the portions are beyond generous. In fact, many of the guests appear content as they leave toting boxed leftovers.
Skidmore is proud of his establishment as he scans the restaurant packed with happy patrons. He notes that Toast will be open some evenings beginning in October where tapas, fondues, beer, wine, and cheese plates will be featured. Live music will complement the ambiance designed to attract a 35 and over crowd.
Open seven days a week, Toast serves patrons Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., and 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekends. Take-out is an option and gift cards make thoughtful gifts. For more information log on to Toast.com or call (631) 654-7091.
