We went to Toast at 1pm on a Monday, there were 3 other tables in the restaurant 2 of them had extremly elderly couples the rest of the place was vacant. Our first reaction to the restaurant was that hardly any of the old vilage inn equipment had been renovated, they painted a little and that's it, tables have the same finish, booths are the same fabric & server stations & pie case were all still the ugly old school village inn style.
We were seated right away by the manager, who had two waiters on at the moment. The most shocking part of the ordeal came next:
Me to waiter: So where does the crab from your crab cakes come from? (I don't think this is a particularly bad question seeing the disaster in the gulf right now and I wanted to know if there were Maryland crab cakes because on their menu it says that they use local ingredients and I just couldn't see where crab would be local in Denver.) Anyways...
Watier: (shocked look on face) Um, well I know it started of life in a can...
Me: Ok I'll order something else.
Crab started off life in a can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you crazy???? We will not be going back.

We were saddened by the passing of the Village Inn. Sometimes you just want to have a simple meal of basic American food, and the Village Inn was a nice place to get that.

Ok, so the decor at Toast is just like the Village Inn. However, the food is quite excellent! We went for lunch and really enjoyed the food, finding it much better than several other breakfast/lunch/brunch places we've been to recently.

I ordered the Grilled Cheese and Pear sandwich, which I found fresh tasting, with crisp veggies and on a tasty roll. My wife greatly enjoyed the Veggie Benedict, and we both found the hollandaise sauce to be smooth and not overpowering. My son enjoyed a burger, and reported that it was savory and that the fries were nicely done.

We got a few pancakes, and all decided that the walnut banana ones were the best we'd ever tasted: light, slightly sweet, and fluffy.

The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly.

We would go back again!
