I love breakfast, and if Toro's were within a reasonable driving distance, I would be here at least weekly. Unfortunately living in WI is not convenient. Superb omelet and very reasonable prices.

I love the Toro Place Cafe especially for breakfast. It’s a small cozy place with limited parking. The food is always consistent with average prices. I usually order eggs with bacon and their home fries are the best

The fries were very good! The salads were decent... probably wouldn't order them again. However, they have a dog menu so that is what gave this place it's charm. Also, beautiful outdoor patio!

Toro Place Cafe is really good if you're looking for good home cooking. They have a great breakfast as well as the perfect place to stop for a good burger or sandwich for lunch. It's also very reasonable and you get a lot for your...More
