Toast is northwest Lincoln’s neighborhood restaurant, and local watering hole. Inspired by the time-honored elements of the European café bar, Toast is a highly caffeinated hybrid that combines perfectly poured espressos with the classic delicatessen while offering a first class selection of fine wine, aged spirits, and premium ales.
At heart, Toast is a place that offers all the comforts of a neighborhood gathering spot while treating the guests to a distinctive atmosphere. From the food and drinks to the reclaimed material used in the interior design, Toast is a stimulation of all the senses and is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone searching for a new twist on an old favorite.
Toast was designed from the ground up by Red Herring Concepts, a Nebraska-based hospitality company specializing in distinctive and eclectic restaurant, bar and entertainment venues. We are an insanely passionate and fiercely independent team of food and beverage professionals whose collective mission is to artfully and intelligently, create an intoxicating blend of hot concepts and cool joints, citywide icons and neighborhood watering holes, well kept secrets and local hangouts, each carefully crafted to charm the spirit, captivate the senses and satisfy the soul.
Toast was specifically designed to fill the needs of Lincoln’s northwest neighborhoods, a portion of Lincoln that has long been ignored by most national food and beverage operations. With roots in the Highlands and Fallbrook, we understood that northwest Lincoln boasts some of the most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods in town, and is home to some of Lincoln’s largest employers.
Toast’s hybrid nature allows us to meet the needs of families and business professionals, middle schoolers and university students, coffee clubs and happy hour groups, easily transitioning from one daypart and demographic to another. In short, you’ll feel comfortable here regardless of whether it’s your first visit or your twenty-first. We’re proud to be the local hangout and hope you’ll soon join us.
