Toast! I’d been wanting to visit either this Ferndale location or the Birmingham one for the longest. I found the Ferndale spot – a small, vibrant, bustling modern-day diner that serves breakfast and lunch – very charming. I brunched with a friend, and over an awesome waffle-and-fried-chicken-sandwich and the requisite pretty-hued brunch drink (the Sunrise, a tequila sunrise and mimosa mash-up, shown above), we caught up and enjoyed the lively ambiance. Waits for seating at this popular Ferndale fixture are known to be long; I believe ours was about 25 minutes, which I honestly didn’t think was terrible for late-morning on a busy Sunday. It didn’t hurt that it was gorgeous outside, making the wait out there amidst the blue skies and sunshine a pleasant experience (I heart you, Michigan summers!).
