City Pages' Description

There's a good reason that the Good Day Café is always jam-packed-in fact, from the waffles and caramel rolls to the fried-egg sandwiches stacked with ham and avocado, there are a lot of reasons. Besides, did you think Golden Valley's country-club crowd was going to make breakfast for itself? The bright, sunny eatery is owned by David Webb, who knows his way around the restaurant biz. At the Good Day, he's taken breakfast standards and amped up the flavor: eggs Benedict indulgently topped with crab cakes, lush espresso drinks with coconut milk and chocolate, dollar-size pancakes that taste exactly like glazed doughnuts. In case your brunch is getting close to lunch hour, the Good Day also serves rotisserie chicken, Reuben sandwiches, and several salads-but it's better to get there early, because that's when they serve the city's sweetest beignets.

My favorites are the steak and eggs, egg sandwich, and huevos rancheros. The smoothies and sticky buns are also pretty amazing, and I like the comfy rustic decor and the friendly staff. My only complaints... The... More >>

    I'm an Eggs Benedict connoisseur and this place nails 'em. Eggs perfectly cooked and an excellent hollandaise.

    Try the Steak Cobb Salad. Tender beef slices, crispy fried onions, avocado, blue cheese, and a poached egg on top: In sum, or parts, it’s all good..—Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, February 2011
