Toast, Mary St, Surry Hills

Toast, Mary St, Surry Hills
Saturday 24 March, 2007

Tucked away in the back of Surry Hills on a quiet street next to a design book store is Toast. Taking up an entire corner block and spilling out onto the sidewalk Toast offers a welcoming space with large open windows. Concrete floors, stunning Chinese screens hanging from the ceiling and wooden panels around the bar - the look is slick and industrial.

Offering all day breakfast on Saturday and Sunday (I love that) Toast is a relaxed place - the staff are laid back, the music alters from acid jazz one minute to loud pop the next - it's somewhere you could easily settle back and enjoy for hours. we did. Arriving for brunch at 10am we didn't leave until 1pm.

We ordered coffees and once they were delivered a large bottle of water & glasses arrived at the table. I liked the fact we didn't have to ask for the water. The menus were already on the table and there were four of them - 2 x drinks menus e.g coffees, juices and shakes and 2 x food menus e.g eggs, omelette's, bircher muesli.

Hanging from the wall were the specials of the day - one that appealed to me - scrambled eggs, baby spinach, chorizo and grilled haloumi. My breakfast buddy ordered scrambled eggs with spinach and bacon.

Our food was delivered on large white rectangular plates and looked great. When asked if we wanted any pepper it arrived in a small dish - nice touch. Our breakfast was very good - the eggs were creamy, the haloumi was soft and mildly salty and the chorizo was thick cut and spicy. The servings were huge and we took our time.

Toast is worth a visit.
