The Friendly Toast, a popular New Hampshire breakfast place, now has an outpost in Cambridge, and the crowd’s going wild. bobot says “even during opening week, even with all of the staff in training, even with only 3/4 of the menu being served, even with a not-up-to-speed-yet kitchen, I can already tell that this is going to be one of my favorites and my go-to brunch spot.”

bobot says the décor is “kitschy,” with vintage Formica tables, and a bar covered with Wacky Packages stickers. It appears that the place only has a beer/wine license for now, but the food is top-notch diner fare. Highlights include:

• The DGGC (damned good grilled cheese), with homemade bread, American and cheddar cheese, whole grain mustard, and strawberry habanero sauce for dipping
• Crunchy Guinness-battered onion rings with, bobot thinks, both cornmeal and cornflakes in the batter and a creamy caper sauce on the side
• Homefries, a Friendly Toast specialty, with thin slices of potatoes fried with onions
• Anadama bread French toast
