The Friendly Toast
The Friendly Toast is so popular that it has locations in Vermont and New Hampshire, too. The hallmarks of a Friendly Toast dining room are the bright wall colors, homey antique signs and paintings, eclectic light fixtures, diner-style booths and the long lines out the door. Its all-day breakfast menu has a wide variety of dishes and clearly designates gluten-friendly, vegetarian and vegan options. Highlights include the seasonal variations on chicken and waffles, the colorful zucchini eggs benedict and fluffy gluten-free banana chocolate-chip pancakes. Sample a mimosa flight and split a plate of Some Like It Tot – crispy taters covered with gooey cheese, bacon and sriracha-honey glaze. Note that you can (and probably should) put your name on a waitlist through the restaurant’s website.
