my love for brunch runs deep, and every time i visit The Friendly Toast in Portsmouth i am reminded of this love.
the felt paintings, the hipster staff, the mimosas served in pint glasses... this is before i even mention the food---
my guy and i decided to gander down from Portland for yet another holy brunch experience. i had to take a picture of the specials because #3 is probably the pinnacle of brunch creations---
"#3 The Hot French Mess - Oui! A slice of our anadama french toast topped with a dollop of mashed potato (wait for it), a grilled banger, two fried eggs and a maple cayenne sauce"
obviously the BF ordered #3, i went for a chicken burrito---
oh, one more very important thing: if you visit The Friendly Toast you must absolutely get their sweet potato fries! fried to perfection, topped with brown sugar, tabasco sauce and served with sour cream to dip---
now i'm hungry. anyhoo, check out their website and VISIT. you'll thank me later.
p.s. they also have a location in Cambridge, MA.
