Without getting too crazy, I decided to try a simple roast beef and cheese sandwich.
In addition, I tried a special of the day, turkey on a
croissant with Fontina cheese, cranberry, lettuce with
a surprising hint of orange, and their take on a 1/2 pound of chicken salad
-- all to go. For those of you who think more meat in a sandwich is better, it's not and this day I received
a perfect roast beef sandwich not heaping with meat but rather with just the
right amount with American cheese and mayo. A simple order, yes,
that can give you an idea of the quality of the
ingredients used. The turkey on a croissant was
delicious. The hint of orange flavor made the
difference between good and something special.
Many of the offerings at this establishment seemed to
include something unexpected which would make you
think, "I would never have thought to add that or
combine those ingredients."
Ok, the place makes a great sandwich but what about that chicken salad? It
was delicious, fresh and very tasty... definitely a new take with nothing
overpowering and yet very flavorful. Again, the
addition of honey mustard made the difference and took
it up a notch.
definitely visit On A Roll again and certainly area
businesses might find this place quite a nice resource
for their catering needs. - Jersey Shadow -

Toast - Toast is a unique name
for a restaurant and as it turns out, perfectly suited
to this establishment because it's unique with a homey laid-back beach feel to it.
The atmosphere is happy with a feeling of upbeat
youth. The decor is
rustic and comfortable to accommodate, surprisingly,
more diners than one would think with overflow space
upstairs. Some, no doubt regulars, arriving asked
for upstairs even though there were good tables on
the main floor... always a good sign of loyalty.
As far as the menu goes, it's basic with an eclectic
flair. No dinner here and the place closes at
3pm every operating day and they are open every
day. All sorts of goodies on the menu from
breakfast favorites to lunchtime classics. The prices are pretty reasonable but caution should
be taken if you don't want to overspend or for that
I must say that my very generous portioned gazpacho was
absolutely delicious and ranks among the best I've
had dining out. Our drinks arrived in mason
jars... a nice homey southern touch. Of special
note, I asked for a glass of water and two glasses
arrived... one for me and one for my guest... a classy move often overlooked.
My guest ordered the stuffed French toast which was
stuffed with sweet cheese, and believe me when it
arrived, it made me salivate.
My Cuban Sandwich was flavorful and the bread was
especially good. All in all a good meal at a
reasonable price. - Jersey Shadow -
