Toast'd is an interesting new addition to the capital food scene. The owners have converted a gas station tuck shop into a tiny café with a big menu. Located in F-7 markaz, Toast'd offers you the perfect excuse to nip in for a snack while you’re filling up the car or checking tyre pressure. The model they’ve gone for guarantees a steady in-flow of customers round the clock. What a clever, clever idea!
The inside is a pleasing green and white, with a few tables and a bar area. It’s ideal for getting a coffee and doughnut on your way to work, or grabbing a quick sandwich during a busy lunch hour. While the savory menu holds up alright with mostly sandwiches, wraps and burgers, the desserts are their real strength. The fudge brownies are hands down the best in the city right now; at room temperature, they melt in your mouth within seconds like soft, chocolaty sand. If that’s too heavy for your taste, try the Date and Walnut bread; its gooey consistency balanced with crunchy nuts is the perfect accompaniment to your afternoon tea.
The bakery items at Toast'd are a real stand out, especially the massive variety of breads. Our favorites are the cheese and chocolate croissants, and the delightful Zaatar bread. If all you’re looking for is a cold drink, the menu features a procession of fruit juices, lemonades and smoothies, served up in perky little mason jars. For a small outfit, the menu packs a powerful punch in terms of size and taste. Best of all, they are open 24/7 and they also deliver. Try it out on your next fuel run; it’s worth a stop-by.
