MSP: Good Day cafe

My parents really like this place. Has anyone else been here for breakfast? Is it as good as they claim it is?

  1. I work nearby and have had lunch a couple of times. The salads are lovely, the sandwiches even better -the only complaint I have with the place is the acoustics. It gets very busy and very loud which can be a problem if you want to have a conversation with anyone at your table.

      does anyone know the web address for Good Day Cafe?

        Here's the places link.


        Good Day Cafe
        5410 Wayzata Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55416

    2. It is loud (as the previous poster says) and there is usually a wait for breakfast on weekends. The food is quite good, though. Great coffee, too.

      1. I really like Good Day, but I have to admit that I've only tried two things in the half-dozen times I've been there. I absolutely LOVE The Iggy Sandwich (fried egg sandwich on brioche.) I don't even remember the second thing that I tried because I didn't care for it and have stuck to the Iggy ever since. My sister likes the Eggs Benny and my young nephews rave over the pancakes (Huckleberry, I think?) and blinzes. We all like the beinets and and the Mexican Hot Chocolate. Another favorite is the Almond Joy coffee drink (among the coffee drinkers, that is.) If it was more convenient to my office, I would be more than happy to stop there for a coffee and beinets on a regular basis.

        A waiter told us just after they opened that they would be doing dinner service after Memorial Day, but I don't think that has happened yet. As someone else mentioned, watch out for crowds during weekend breakfast hours. It's a zoo and it does get loud. They don't seem to have a website, but I look for one every now and then to see if they post when they might serve dinner.

          I called them recently and they didn't have any immediate plans to expand to
          serving dinner, also no web site yet.

            I've been to the Good Day Cafe for breakfast - waits can seem long, but they do seem to get people in fairly quickly. However, if the patio part is not open (I assume it might still be?) then the wait can definitely be a bit longer.

            I've had a few different things here, and they're decent. It's nothing to drive just there for (Fab Fern's, Hot Plate, Hell's Kitchen are better choices for b-fast) and sometimes service can be a bit slow because of the chaos .... but it's a decent choice and you won't leave hungry!

        2. I went today and was absolutely thrilled with the burger. Link to my comments:

          1. We went there for breakfast last week, and it was really very good. Not a place for conversation; as others have noted, it is very loud. But the food is great. I had the wild mushroom eggs benedict, and it was delicious. Other members of our group were also pleased with their choices. The hot chocolate was unbelieveable. We took home some of the pecan sticky buns, which are wonderful. If you like breakfast, this is a great choice.
