Saturday morning calls for a special breakfast. A celebration that you survived another work week and that two days off has begun!
We headed down to Hull to cash in a Groupon I bought a while back- time for some Toast!
Toast is tucked away on Nantasket Avenue right on the beach.
Look for the blue Ocean Place sign and take a left. There's parking across the street in a municipal lot, too.
Though you might encounter a bit of a wait, there's plenty of knick-knacks to see.
A bookshelf of cookbooks in the bathroom!
Soap shaped like buttered toast!
The owner, Audrey, did the hair and makeup for this photoshoot!
We probably waited about 15-20 minutes to be seated- we scored prime spots at the counter. I love sitting at the counter- all the hustle and bustle is right there and it feels just like an old fashioned diner full of locals and families. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Our coffee cups were kept full and warm.
We started with an order of grilled banana bread. It was served with a side of salty butter and it was divine. Soft sweet cake was encased in a crisp, warm exterior. Pretty sure we were lucky enough to get the last batch- so delicious.
There's only a chef and a sous chef in the back so it does take some time to get your food, but the main event is worth the wait.
Oh my stars, these were tasty. Sugared pecans and fresh blueberries topped three hearty, multigrain pancakes. Served with real maple syrup, these were the perfect breakfast treat. I got a side of fluffy scrambled eggs for a bit of protein.
The husband ordered the Cape Cod home fries. Shredded and diced potatoes were grilled to perfection with peppers, onions, and sausage. A sprinkling of cheese on top and a side of over easy eggs rounded out the plate.
As you can see, we both left very full and very happy. Our total meal was only $28- a definite bargain for the quality we received. The rest of the menu looked as good as the food we ordered, so we'll definitely be going back for more weekend eats.
Three cheers for Toast!
