Stopped here on my way to the airport for a quick lunch. I wanted to try their salad sandwich. It did not disappoint. Fresh sliced bread, and a piling of fresh veggies. It was huge and delicious. One of the best sandwiches on the island. They also serve drumroaster coffee which is also fantastic!

Mmmm, went back for the veg sandwich and it did not disappoint. Also the butter chicken soup was excellent. However the Nanaimo Bar from the dessert case that we had afterwards while still tasty was quite stale. Stick to the fresh made items and you will not be disappointed.

Came back here on a thrift shop expedition. The food is still generally good though I have to say the vegetarian sandwich is rather lacking in weight and substance without meat and cheese. Good perhaps if you are a vegetarian but not for those otherwise. The butter chicken soup daily special was a little on the insipid side, though meaty... More

Great sandwiches at good prices. My husband and I shared the 'picnic' sandwich special - it was excellent. My veg friend had the veg sandwich - it was huge and she said very good!! I'll try that next time. Very pleasant staff. Pleasant atmosphere. Self serve tap water spigot = nice. I'll be back!

It's casual. Order at the counter and wait (which you are advised to as the food is not fast), take a table if you have to. Sandwiches were delivered to the table and were excellent. One of the best I've had anywhere. Pretty reasonable portion though some may still be hungry so pretty good value overall. Tap water is available;... More

Just visited Sydney. Found this place online. Yum! Great service and a really great sandwich. Quite a few options and was made to order fresh. The bread was wonderful, fluffy. The whole experience gave me the impression I was eating a healthy meal- home made bread stuffed with fresh veggies. I would be back. Even had some good kids options... More

The food at toast is awesome. The tuna melt is my favourite the bread is fresh and perfectly toasted. My only complaint is that they are not open Sundays
