Toast, Temecula, CA
Toast has a lot more than toast! Although it is in a nondescript strip mall, it seems like a cool, downtown brunch place. They were able to take advantage of the sidewalk space and there were a lot of outdoor tables and some indoor seating. The menu is really interesting offerings such as a honey lavender cappuccino, a roasted root salad, harissa chicken, a bahn mi sandwich, a fig berry tea and lots more, including cocktails. They open at 7 AM. which is so nice. Many brunches places don't open until 10 AM.
My friend at pork chilaquiles verde with the two eggs held. The portion was huge and very tasty. We took it home to finish for dinner. I had crepes with peaches and a peach yogurt filling. Very good.
The staff is very friendly!
