During the holidays and extended winter season -- can you say "snow day"? -- it's good to know of a terrific place to wander in wearing your galoshes and start the day off right, even if it's a little later in the day! Through the friend of a friend, I learned about such a place: Toast, in Birmingham, Michigan. Birmingham is one of Detroit's northern suburbs.
Toast is a funky, casual place with personality in the decor: chandeliers, sofas, a wild mix of colors. They know it gets cold out! They have free coffee while you wait for your table. Brunch
Eggs "Benny" is made with the traditional ingredients, but with your choice of meat from the local Dearborn Sausage Company. I tried the ham: it's mild and tender with a hint of smoke.
First drink in the morning, I'm not going for super spicy. That's why I loved the "Garden Mary": less
spicy than their original with dill infused vodka served with celery salt rim, lemon, stuffed green olive, pickle and cucumber. It's got a little spice, but not tongue deadening.
Homemade cheese curds are fried, savory, light, crunchy and addictive!
You can order jalapeno cheddar toast for your bread service.
Red bliss home fries are prepared with house seasoning salt.
If you eat there in the day, they offer a 20% discount for eating there for dinner that night. I was tempted, but the hostess at night said they didn't have any of the larger tables available . . . I can't do what I do at a tiny two-top!
