The Toast: Craft kitchen and cocktails

More from this show

An all-from-scratch restaurant in the West Valley, The Toast is a neighborhood gem that serves up big portions and creative menu items with an emphasis on Mediterranean flavor.

Owner Emily Bromm used to own a sandwich shop in Wickenburg, but wanted something more. She takes her cues from her regulars, who often tell her what kind of special they would like to see, and her culinary team will turn that into the special of the week. 

Emily Bromm, owner of The Toast, described the food as “Contemporary American with a Mediterranean twist.” They serve brunch on the weekends, lunch and dinner. 

“We wanted the environment to be casual but elegant at the same time,” Broom said, “a place where you could feel comfortable for a special occasion, but also comfortable for a happy hour at the bar.” 

The Toast offers three different specials each week. “We emphasize what is seasonal and what is fresh, what the customers are asking for.” Broom explained.

They are known for their roasted Brussels sprouts, the Mediterranean chicken and the goat cheese balls. 

Guest Carla Taghvaei, had brunch at The Toast. She ordered the big cinnamon rolls. “It was about the size of your place, it was really big.” she said. “That was kind of my breakfast and dessert, and it was delicious.”

Guest Ed Neilson, also had brunch at The Toast and ordered the chicken and falafel waffle. “It looked interesting, obviously, and it was amazing,”  Neilson said. “The flavors were incredible.”

The cozy atmosphere of this place makes customers feel relaxed and have a good time.
