An Ode to Toastie

By Abby Stiefel

[Editor’s note: Although we do recognize that this Ode to toasties is now obsolete, it was a hard time nevertheless for students to cope with their Toastie withdrawal. We felt that it was important to recognize the difficult time that the Stern College for Women student body has undergone.]

A crowd gathered right next to Brookdale

Posted on Stern in the Know “the new hottest Omni option on the caf card #toastie”

Was the hashtag really necessary?

We may never know.


A whopping 60 likes 👍🏻and 62 comments later those who dared to walk 4 steps out of Brookdale now had an intriguing dining option.


Whether in the mood for bread or deli you had it all Toastie 🍞

Sizzling from the waking hour of 11:30am to nightfall at 10:30pm

I once bought a sprite from you after hours

Your soda bottles were so vintage.


Often you were overwhelmed and overpowered by Paprika

How were you expected to compete with stuffed cabbage!? 

What a disgrace to the art of sandwich. 🥖


Your humble bar stools against the wall

With a horizontal mirror for customers to watch themselves eat so they didn’t feel alone.


Truth is I never tasted you

It was the hashtag that threw me off


Toastie, I am sorry you got burnt.
