    Ordered breakfast consisting of eggs, potatoes, and bacon. Assumed toast came with the meal. It didn't so I paid $4.50 for cold toast that came out 10 minutes before the remainder of my meal. Way too much money for breakfast. My meal with a drink was over $20. It's just not worth it.

    It was wonderful but a little hard to have conversations with grandparents with the noise level. We felt like we were yelling over the background noise. Otherwise, it was wonderful! The staff was great and the food tasted wonderful.

    Mini reunion post Thanksgiving. Good Day was packed and usually is. Service was great and food was tasty and appropriately hot/cold. Eating area is dense with few barriers, plants, et al which can make for a loud environment. Most everyone knows what to expect and we keep coming back again and again. 🤓

    Everything I've ever ordered here has been delicious! Each one of the staff members from the hostesses to the servers were pleasantly friendly and helpful. In spite of the rather loud noise level, it was still enjoyable. As busy as it was, our food was delivered quite promptly so, all in all, I would highly recommend GDC!

    We really like to eat here for Sunday breakfast when visiting our son. The food is always very good, but a bit pricey. Their quiche is fabulous as are the omelets and the pancakes. I always make a reservation, but we still end up waiting, even when our whole party is there. That is a little frustrating. Fortunately, our waitress was amazing and the food came out quick.

    So LOUD! Obviously busy on a Sat morning but the place is so loud it’s hard to have a conversation at the table. The staff was fantastic and attentive even though very busy. The food was just meh. It wasn’t bad. But it wasn’t good. Sticky bun was dry. Ok for breakfast if you are nearby. But not a breakfast destination when there are so many other options in the Twin Cities.

    I was looking forward to eating here but was very disappointed. Nice ambience and good service but that is it. Food was not that good. No spicy ketchup with my corned beef hash it was just regular ketchup, was supposed to come with spicy ketchup, daughter's pancakes were mushy, GDC potatoes were tasteless. Will not be returning.

    I met a friend for lunch on what was a very busy Saturday. What struck us both was the noise. We had to shout with each other, the hostess, and our server just to be heard. This is my first experience with the ridiculous volume. The food was good as was the service, given the packed house. I had a bowl of tomato basil soup which was tasty with a little kick. My friend had pancakes and the GDC potatoes which are sliced, roasted potatoes with onions and seasoning. Both were also tasty. I will definitely return, however, I will go a tad later to be able to chat without shouting. The noise boardered on obnoxious.
