Toast, Montclair, NJ

On our way to visit some of our favorite NJ wineries in Sussex County, we decided to head out early and have some breakfast on the way. We stopped off in Montclair, NJ at a place called Toast. The place was packed and is apparently well known for their breakfast offerings, although they also serve lunch. The place is small, there is a second floor as well, we were seated on the first floor near the window, it was a great spot.

Our waiter was very friendly and told us about some specials and brought us some much needed coffee. Looking over the menu made me even more hungry than I was already. Tons of yummy sounding pancake, french toast and waffle choices, however it was something savory that caught my eye. While some of the eggs benedict variations were tempting, I went with the corned beef hash which was playfully named, "Sundays on the Farm". Just like our favorite traveling chef bad boy Anthony Bourdain, I have become quite the "egg slut" and ordered my corned beef hash with two over easy eggs. The yolk broke over the delicious mix of spicy beef and itty bitty diced potatoes and onions to make a very tasty sauce. The corned beef was so good and there was plenty of it, I was impressed that the hash wasn't just all potato with just a little meat. My companion was super hungry and wanted something really satisfying, so he went with one of Toast's unique "scrambles", the one he chose had 6 eggs, chicken breast, jack cheese, avocado and a side of fruit. If this dish sounds gigantic, that's because it was, but my companion happily scarfed up the whole thing. He said it was awesome and really filled him up.

We were now well caffeinated and fueled for our long day of wine tasting. If you live near Montclair or find your way there on a road trip, stop in to Toast for some great breakfast, it is sure to keep you going all day.
