After a great day together we checked out the evening part of good day cafe and went to bad day bar. Was a nice place to end the day with large sitting area for us so we weren't on top of each other. The desserts were good but they were running low,on them at 7pm. But all in all we... More

We waited for 20 minutes on a Saturday morning at 10am for a table of 4. The sweet potato pancakes tasted nothing like sweet potatoes and a lot like like nutmeg. The hollondaise sauce tasted watered down. The beignets were coated in excessive amounts of cinnamon sugar to cover up the lack of good pastry underneath. The crepes were gummy.... More

On a busy - busy - Saturday AM, two of us had to wait about 25 mins...not bad considering how crowded it was. Fun to hang out and wait...good people watching. Food was excellent. I had a quiche and it was the best I've found anywhere. Friend had a pastry that was over the top good. Friendly, efficient service.

On a busy - busy - Saturday AM, two of us had to wait about 25 minutes...not bad. Plus, the crowd is so fun to watch. The food (I had quiche) was the best I've ever had, and the service was great. Price is very fair - especially for the experience.

I love dining at different restaurants when I travel. I decided to have breakfast at this cafe. Excellent choice! It was so crowded and there was a waiting list. People were sitting outside waiting. It was worth the wait. Anyhoooooo...I ordered the 49er Flapjacks, one scrambled egg, and an order of double smoked bacon. Everything was delicious. Check out the... More

I arrived early, like 35 minutes early (for breakfast). They seated me, treated me like royalty although they new that apart from the coffee and an OJ I was in no position to order right away. The meal was to die for: fresh ingredients, above average "complicated", and consistently great service. This will be one of my go-to places every... More

Good day is a staple breakfast location for business meetings. Although it is pretty much one of the only real options outside of downtown, the food and service is always exceptional. My personal favorites are the smoke salmon Benedict or fresh made granola.

First time visiting and liked the food. Service was okay, not stellar but not awful. Food choices were plentiful and there are breakfast options on the lunch menu which is the direction I went. (I love breakfast anytime!) The room has high ceilings and as it filled up it was impossible to have a meaningful conversation - my throat was... More

This is my go-to place now. I love it here, the food, the people, the ambiance, the convenience to St Louis Park, MN. And wait until you try their deserts ! Always take home a treat for tomorrow, too. Yum

Little did we know that a "quick dinner" before the movie would be so good. The waitress was welcoming and helpful. She suggested Iggy's Fried Egg Sandwich. "It was the bomb" - avocado, shaved French ham, tomato, fried onion and cheddar on brioche - how good is that? I had Millie's Meatloaf Dinner. I look for meatloaf when I go... More
