With Toast’s final inspection scheduled for Monday, the highly-anticipated Laurel Street breakfast spot from the Francophile masterminds behind Tartine will soon be open, much to the delight of Uptown early birds looking for a new morning haunt.
“We wanted an additional place to spotlight how great we are at breakfast,” said Matt Engle. “A lot of people already think of Tartine more like a morning spot than a French restaurant, so it was a natural expansion.”
The dish they’re most excited about? The aebleskivers: poppable, fluffy, round pancakes with a variety of fillings that missed a good chance at being a character on Adventure Time. (They would most certainly win an award for most adorable breakfast food.) Toast will be the first place in the city to serve them daily.
