I have finally made it to The Friendly Toast. The most popular brunch suggestion I receive is The Friendly Toast. I went to the Back Bay location with my friend, N.

The Friendly Toast is jam packed as the day goes on. We chose to go to brunch at 10 thinking we would miss the major brunch crowd. However, there was a bit of a crowd and we ended up sitting at the bar downstairs. When we left about an hour later, there was a massive crowd. Be prepared to wait. The wait is worth it.

The Friendly Toast has a vast menu. I had a hard time picking out what I wanted to eat. Once I found chicken and waffles it was over. I knew that is what I wanted to get. N decided to get an omelet. The chicken and waffles came with a chorizo-corn gravy. I am not a huge gravy fan, but the bartender convinced me to get it on the side.

The chicken and waffles were fantastic, as was the chorizo-corn gravy. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it. I didn't douse my chicken and waffles in the gravy, but the drizzle was perfection. I would have asked to hold the green onions if I had realized they would be a part of the dish, but lucky, they are easy to pick off and don't taste too onion-y.

N liked her omelet. She picked cinnamon raison toast to accompany her dish. It looks like the bread contains chocolate, but it doesn't. It's just the way the bread is cooked.

Overall, I enjoyed The Friendly Toast. I would go back as there were quite a few items I would have loved to try!
