Ask any Charlestonian what Toast! of Charleston is and you will hear of stuffed French toast so famous that it ends up in the “New York Times.” I am here to tell you that Toast! of Charleston is more than just breakfast. This southern eatery hits the spot with all three meals plus live entertainment on the weekends.
The night time feel is casual and friendly. When you stop in to grab some comfort food, choose the Sweet Tea Glazed Chicken. This fried boneless chicken brushed with a sweet glaze and sides will be sure to fill you up. Don’t miss out on the fried okra and mashed potatoes for a truly southern meal!
Running out of the office for a quick bite? Toast! of Charleston can get you in and out in no time. Go light with the Shrimp Salad Wrap. The spice of the Cajun mayo is just enough to give this dish a kick. If seafood isn’t your thing, opt for the Charleston Cheese Steak Sandwich. This classic is sure to keep you full if you are working late on a weeknight.
As for everyone’s favorite meal of the day, there is no way to go wrong with a Toast! breakfast. “The New York Times” loved the Eggs Meeting Street. Who wouldn’t love a fried green tomato topped with a crab cake, poached egg, and remoulade sauce? When you throw in the fact you also get a biscuit as well as an option of grits or home fries; it is easy to see why this drew attention. Another attention grabber is the stuffed French toast. Also mentioned by “The New York Times,” the Deluxe French Toast captures gasps of curious onlookers when walked to a table. This concoction towers over your plate with the thickness of five slices of bread. The toast has a golden outside and a hot filling on the inside with your choice of apple or peach. Now that is southern.
This Friday, January 30 come enjoy the tunes of local artist Blake Zahnd while eating a large plate of Smothered Pork Chops. There is no better way to truly appreciate Charleston than listening to a songwriter live while enjoying southern food.
Also, we have Kevin Church playing on Saturday January 31st!
Toast is a proud sponsor and supporter for Toys for Tots. Drop off your toys at our location and spread the joy to a needy child.
Even though breakfast is what put Toast! on the map, we are much more than just the best breakfast around. We offer dinner specials during the week and have happy hour every Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m.
Every Thursday night, we’ll have College night starting on March 29th when we’ll have Shane Clark as our musical guest. Shane Clark Experience is an absolute must see premier party band in Charleston, South Carolina. The band was formed in 2008 with a collaboration of some of the best musicians in Charleston. They play all styles of music from 60’s, 70’s, Soul, Dance, Funk, Rock, Blues, Top 40 Country and original music in search of a major label deal. The band has an extensive resume with years of playing professionally with recording artists from Nashville such as Gary Allan, Trace Adkins, Aaron Tippin, Clay Davidson, Sammy Kershaw, and Cletus T. Judd just to name a few.
Toast! – it’s not just for breakfast any more!
This week on Lowcountry Live, Charleston Hospitality Group featured Toast’s Chef Steve Williams alongside Corporate Chef Brett McKee. Steve demonstrated one of our most popular menu items, Eggs Meeting Street – a crabcake, topped with a fried green tomato, poached egg and remoulade sauce. We offer this in single or double portions.
Brett also talked about he and Steve meeting to rework the Toast dinner menu to offer some exciting new menu options. He mentioned that Toast could be serving up his famous fried chicken, alongside some healthy, light seafood options, as well as solid comfort food choices like country fried steak. When we have the new menu, it will be posted here.

“Best Breakfast downtown, bar none”

There’s a reason why there is a line out front of this place every Saturday and Sunday morning. And the people in the line aren’t all tourists. This is one of the few places I’d stand in line to wait to eat. If you’re not ravishingly hungry, the wait is worth it. They have all the usual breakfast items you will want and it’s all fabulous. They are also open for other meals, but I’ve never eaten them here, so I can’t say.
“Very good breakfast”

The food is always very good and there is a server there who is thoroughly fantastic, I wish I could remember his name. It is a great place to stop in for breakfast before you go explore Charleston.
“Fabulous Experience and Great Food!”

My husband and I went to Toast on Saturday February 25, at noon. Now, as locals to Charleston we know that this is not an ideal time to try and go downtown and dine, but we were kid free and gave it a go. When we got to Toast we were told it would be a 25-30 minute wait, which we completely expected, after all it was a beautiful Spring Like Saturday in town. We were called for a table within 10 minutes. Our table was right by the bar in the front of the restaurant, our server David was fantastic, not overbearing yet extremely prompt in keeping the bottomless Mimosas filled! He was friendly and made our experience enjoyable. People kept trying to gather in front and beside our table to wait for their table and the hostesses were very good about clearing them out so that the people dining in the bar did not have to have people standing and hovering over them while they ate. Of course our food was fantastic, we had The Lowcountry Eye Opener (a shrimp and grits type meal), my husband had the Crabcake Sammie and we shared biscuits and gravy. All of our food was fresh, hot and delicious! Best deal in town for great brunch and $10 bottomless Mimosas!
