35 Toast Toppers Your Guests Will Come Back For

Though simple at first glance, toast is far from pedestrian. Creative and bold toast toppers are a perfect, way for chefs to deliver new flavours to diners in a familiar format. They are fantastic for sharing and work well as offerings for all dayparts. As consumer behaviour continues to deviate from three-square-meals-per-day, snackable offerings have become more important than ever. How will your restaurant adapt to this shift?

Toast is the ticket for its unparalleled versatility. Best of all, toast allows chefs to re-imagine ingredients already on hand, making these bites economically friendly for restaurants. Below we explore 35 toast toppers your guests will come back for – again and again.
