Toast in Ferndale is one of the best places for brunch in all of metropolitan Detroit. Its layout is similar to a vintage 1950s diner, however its décor is nothing short of original, with a breakfast and lunch menu to match. Their omelets are the most popular dish, although their chicken and waffles combo plate looks truly fine. Toast’s daily specials keep regulars coming back, with delicious offerings like their apple streudel, french toast and monkey cakes, topped with bananas, granola and brown sugar.
