The Friendly Toast Plans to Open in Brookline's Coolidge Corner

A trio of eclectic dining spots is planning to open a fourth, and this one would be in one of the busiest sections of Brookline.

According to a couple of sources (including a message sent from the Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog), The Friendly Toast is looking to open in Coolidge Corner, with a post from confirming this. Based on the post (and one of our sources), the proposed eatery would be moving into the space on Beacon Street where Yasu had been until closing last winter.

The Friendly Toast, which is known in part for its all-day breakfasts, has locations in Boston's Back Bay, Cambridge's Kendall Square, and Portsmouth, NH.

The address for this proposed restaurant in Coolidge Corner is: The Friendly Toast, 1366 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA, 02446. The website for the other locations can be found at

[February 6 update: According to an article in, the new location of The Friendly Toast hopes to open in Brookline on June 1.]

[June 6 update: The Friendly Toast has not opened in Brookline as of yet, and two sources are telling us that the space now has a "For Lease" sign out front and one source says it does not appear that work is currently being done inside.]
