A friend and I went for brunch. I had the biscuits and gravy and YUM! Not many places get the sausage gravy right but Good Day DID! The speciality mimosas are bomb too! I had the ginger beer mimosa. It took awhile for our server to get our order but it wasn’t bad enough to derail our experience.

Always a good experience at Good Day! Food and service were great. Socially distanced in dining room though had a wait even though we had reservations and it was difficult to maintain distance while waiting.

Good mimosas but their breakfast options are overpriced. Even basic breakfast items will cost you $12 and I have had better elsewhere.

Disappointed that they don’t serve lunch on Sunday. Only breakfast options, even after 12 pm. Not advertised on their website.

Best place for breakfast or brunch in the western twin cities. Its my first visit post-pandemic and they have done a nice job spacing the place out to make you feel safer.. and they have the same great menu.

Ordered an omelette w/ the GDC potatoes. Also ordered a side of hollandaise sauce, which was AMAZING.

Good bloody but could use a bit more kick. Delicious coffee.

I had the meat loaf sandwich and it was an impressive slab of meat loaf with great tasting string beans and real mashed potatoes. It was great. Social distancing was very good and service was excellent. I have at least two other items I want to try on their menu so I expect I will go back.

Huevos Rancheros was awful. Watery salsa slopped all over it and dry chorizo patties.

Service very friendly.

They won’t seat you until your entire party is there. One was running late, then when we all did sit they rushed us with our bill and boxes like they wanted us out right away. My buckwheat pancakes were ok. More syrup would have been nice, but they never came back with it...just our bill

The food and service were great. It is very busy, even with reservations and tables have a one-hour limit due to Covid. I will go back! Anything with their marinated chicken (salads, sandwiches) is great!

Good Day Cafe is an icon for doing breakfasts right. Widely varied menu cooked right. Indoor seating is well spaced, and the service hustles to overcome the extra distances. Masks required. There is also a covered patio outdoors. Reservations recommended.
