Stone's Famous Toastery gets a shout-out from Vogue
Peter Stone couldn’t imagine his good fortune opening his Famous Toastery restaurant next door to the Westin Poinsett Hotel. Stone is a native of Greer who, with his wife, Cindy, decided to get in the food industry this summer.

And then along comes a story in Vogue.com, less than four months later, recommending the breakfast/brunch restaurant as part of Greenville History Tours’s breakfast tour. Vogue said Famous Toastery, Biscuit Head and LeGrand Bakery cooks up a little history with some breakfast.

Greenville is being touted as an emerging food-driven city, following in the culinary footsteps of Charleston, according to Vogue.

“Sharing the lobby area with the Westin Poinsett Hotel and the Poinsett Plaza has been great,” Stone said. “They have wonderful guests and employees.  They recommend our breakfast/lunch to those customers who are looking for a good place to eat and close by.  “Because they are such a great hotel, we at the Famous Toastery feel like we are part of the excellent service that their guests experience.  We feel we are adding to their overall quality experience when they visit Greenville,” Stone said.

Famous Toastery is located at 104 South Main Street in Greenville.

A smorgasbord of festivals dot downtown Greenville, including the signature Epicurean, a multiday food, wine, and music event founded by singer-songwriter Edwin McCain and Carl Sobocinski, president of Table 301 Restaurant Group.

Each year, the festival draws talented chefs such as Curtis Duffy (in his third year of attending), Dominique Crenn and Michael Mina, Vogue reported.

“There are lots of events that happen in the downtown Greenville area and we recognize our part of delivering quality products and services to all of the quests who are attending these events,” Stone said.

Stone said his restaurant’s menu is conducive to downtown businesses or visitors at nearby hotels that are steps away from the entertainment and arts district.

“Our menu offers numerous quality products to address the diverse needs/desires of our customers,” Stone said. “We offer products for the customers who have health concerns.  We offer gluten-free items, vegan and low calorie items as well as those wholesome comfort foods desired. “

“The businesses downtown love the fact that we serve fast quality products so they can get back to their offices, quickly.  Numerous business meetings are held at our tables every day, too,” Stone said.

Vogue gave a shoutout to other popular breakfast, lunch, dinner restaurants, cocktail bars and craft beer establishments.
