It's sad when independent shops close and leave, but not when they move next door and become something more.
Such is the case with the old Drip
, now the new Toast
on 7th Street. Snuggled into a third the space of Drip, Toast has actually expanded its menu by two thirds -- you can get breakfast, lunch, baked goods and espresso.
The expanded menu includes a NYC Egg Sandwich, with choice of egg, bread, meat, cheese and veggies for $8.50. Under Toast of the Week is the Rolls Royce, among others: it transforms mere beans to royalty - baked beans, egg, and bacon on brioche. We were tempted, but, we like to keep things simple here at Chow Bella; the over-easy egg on brioche was just the ticket.
Lunch consists of a choice of four different cabatta based sandwiches - meat, cheese + veggies, and one with egg. Open Tues - Fri, 7am - 2pm and Sat - Sun 8am - 2pm, at 2327 N. 7th Street - Phoenix.
